CHICAGO – Fans who enjoyed the new comedy series “Breaking In” and feared the show wouldn’t last longer than the seven episode first season need not worry. FOX officially announced this afternoon that they would be renewing the show for a second season of production, even after announcing a few months ago that it was canceled.

Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment for the Fox Broadcasting Company, announced that the second season would be 13 episodes long, almost double the pilot season, and would return to the network’s schedule sometime in 2012.

‘Breaking In’ is a creatively vibrant and wildly adventurous comedy,” said Reilly. “We are looking forward to bringing it back for a second season and continuing our relationship with this incredibly talented cast and these fantastic creators – Adam Goldberg and Seth Gordon. We can’t wait to see where they take these characters next year.

The show’s creators that Reilly mentioned, Goldberg and Gordon, are not new to success in the comedy world. Goldberg was a producer and writer on the TV comedy “Still Standing” as well as the writer on the film “Fanboys” while Gordon has directed films such as “Four Christmases” “Freakonomics” and this past summer’s comedy “Horrible Bosses.”

“Breaking In” follows several geniuses and thieves who work for a high tech security firm. Their job is to try and break into various types of security systems made by their employer in order to find any flaws or problems with their systems.

The show stars Bret Harrison, Odette Annable, Alphonso McAuley, and Christian Slater who plays Oz, the mastermind everyone works for.
