BREAKING NEWS: GSN Renews "The Chase" For A Second Season

No, this is not a typo; you read the headline correctly: GSN has already ordered a second season of the network's newest original series, The Chase, before the show's debut Tuesday, August 6 at 9:00pm EST. The show is now casting for its second season and production is scheduled to begin in August. If you think you have the speed, confidence, bravery and knowledge to take on "The Beast", go to GSN's and ITV Studios' The Chase Casting Central website for more information. Paul Buccieri, the Managing Director for ITV Studios International and President and CEO for ITV Studios America, "couldn't be more delighted with the support that GSN has give The Chase and [is] thrilled that it has been picked up for a second season." As The Chase has become a staple for ITV in U.K. (as the show will be entering into its seventh series soon), I hope that U.S. adaption of the high stakes, fast-paced quizzer will become a staple for GSN.

Considering the network's bold leap into renewing the series before the show has even aired in The States, The Chase could be GSN's next biggest hit since the premiere of The American Bible Challenge, which has attracted a staggering, record-breaking 1.73 million viewers. To my knowledge, the earliest GSN has taken to renew one of its own game shows before the first season has ended was last year on October 9 with The American Bible Challenge, nine days before the show's season finale, and that show continues to attract more fans and maintains good and steady ratings. Meanwhile, mark you calendars for what will hopefully be the exciting series premiere of The Chase on GSN in August. Stay tuned!
