Good news for fans of Terrell Owens ripped body and The T.O. Show:
The Buffalo Bills wide receiver’s hit reality show has been picked up for a second season on VH1.
Thanks to an average of 1.5 million viewers and an ad campaign that featured a nearly naked Owens, the show was not only popular with football fans but with women who were interested in the off-the-field lifestyle of the flashy wide receiver.
Also returning to the show are Monique Jackson and Kita Williams, Owens' publicists and friends. "Terrell has been a great asset to the VH1 team, and we're thrilled to have him back for another season," said VH1's Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Production. "He is a compelling figure to watch both on and off the field, and we hope to continue to watch his life evolve beyond football for many seasons to come."
Filming for season two will start following the conclusion of the 2009 NFL season, which kicks off Thursday.
Similar to this season, Owens will be a free agent this upcoming offseason and his search for a new team will be part of the focus for season two along with exploring business ventures for when he decides to retire from football.
Owens has earned quite the reputation during his 13-year NFL career as being a selfish player and a cancer in the locker room.
But on The T.O. Show, while he still comes off as a diva at times, you really get to see a different side of Owens, thanks mostly to Jackson and Williams.
For fans of The T.O. Show who weren’t football fans, will you now follow Owens during the upcoming NFL season or just wait for Season 2 to get your T.O. fix?
