E! has given its rookie "Botched" a second chance to fix itself. The network has ordered the reality series for season 2, which is expected to premiere in the first quarter of 2015. Doctors Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif will return to the show for the second installment.
"The 'Botched' series has struck a chord with viewers who are drawn in by stories of excessive surgeries gone wrong," said Jeff Olde, executive vice president of programming and development. "In the quest for perfection, we've tapped into a pop culture zeitgeist, sharing cautionary tales, positive outcomes and true transformations."
"Botched" is currently averaging 1.54 million viewers and nearly 1 million demo viewers in its first season. It is poised to become most-watched docu-series among the 18-49 demo on the network. The first season finale will air August 17 at 10:30 P.M. ET/PT.
Executive produced by Alex Baskin, Douglas Ross, Greg Stewart and Robert Carroll, the show reviews some plastic surgeries gone awry.
