Mere hours after "Transparent" creator Jill Soloway and actor Jeffrey Tambor used their Emmy night platform to shine a light on the "trans civil rights problem" in America, news broke that another groundbreaking, trans-centric series, "I Am Cait," had been renewed by E! for a second season.
Eight episodes ran this summer, all focusing on Jenner's transition into life as a trans woman after coming out to ABC News’ Diane Sawyer during a special that aired late last April. The show found Jenner surrounding herself with a new community of trans friends, debating her own privilege, and attempting to renegotiate family life with the Kardashian-Jenner clan after her divorce with Kris, and the Vanity Fair cover that told the world we could call her Caitlyn.
MTV News has reached out to E! for comment.
Update: E! has told MTV News that "there's nothing to confirm" as of press time.
