Oxygen has given a second season to “The Prancing Elites Project,” its docu-series that follows an all-male African-American dance troupe determined to break down gender and racial barriers, Variety has learned exclusively.

The first season, which bowed in April, was the network’s highest-rated series premiere among all key demos since its rebranding in 2014. The series particularly found a home with younger viewers, as its median age demo is 34. With season two, there’s even more to love as the series expands from 30 minutes to an hourlong format and all five members of the Mobile, Alabama-based group are set to return.

“The Prancing Elites’ unique and emotional journey is a resounding hit with Oxygen’s diverse, millennial audience. Their ability to face uphill battles with determination and humor allows viewers to not only relate to them, but also be inspired by them,” said Rod Aissa, Oxygen Media’s exec VP of original programming and development. “We are proud to keep sharing the group’s authentic story as they continue to reach for their dreams now more than ever on the heels of the most monumental Pride month in our country’s history.”

The dancers take on Mardi Gras in the season one finale of “The Prancing Elites Project,” which airs at 9 p.m. July 8 on Oxygen.
