The game will keep going over at Spike. The cable channel has renewed the Blue Mountain State comedy series for a second year.
Blue Mountain State is a half hour comedy that revolves around three college freshman who join the Blue Mountain State University football team. The cast includes Alan Ritchson, Chris Romano, Darin Brooks, Ed Marinaro, Gabrielle Dennis, and Sam Jones III.
The show is produced by Lionsgate TV and Brian Robbins’ Varsity Pictures. Robbins produces Smallville and Jones and Ritchson are certainly familiar faces to fans of that CW series.
Created by Eric Falconer and Chris Romano, the show’s first season kicked off last month and is still airing. Last week’s episode attracted 810,000 viewers with a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic. The 13th and final episode of the season is expected to air in late March.
But fans won’t be kept wondering if the show is coming back. THR is reporting that the series has already been renewed for a second season. A baker’s dozen of episodes have been ordered but its unknown right now when they’ll begin airing.
What do you think? Are you glad that Blue Mountain State will be returning for a second season?
UPDATE: Season two starts October 20th. Read more here.
