Sci Fi Wire is reporting that the Sci Fi Channel has ordered a full second season of its original reality series, expanding the show from 6 episodes to 10 one-hour episodes.
“Who Wants to Be a Superhero? was a success for us on many levels last summer,” Mark Stern, SCI FI’s executive vice president, original programming, said in a statement. “The show garnered great reviews, attracted a record-breaking number of younger viewers to the channel and held its own against some very stiff competition on Thursday nights.”
The first season of the show averaged a 1.1 household rating, good enough for an average of 1.5M viewers per week.
