‘Jamie Oliver’ renewed for new season

ABC orders six episodes of Emmy-winning series

Brit chef Jamie Oliver taught students in West Virginia about healthy eating; now he’s about to do the same in Los Angeles.

ABC has ordered a second season of “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution,” the reality skein that only a week ago walked away with an Emmy for top reality series.

Net, which asked for six episodes, could run the series either in midseason or summer. The six-episode first season ran in March and April on Fridays and averaged 5.5 million viewers and a 2.0 rating in the 18-49 demo, both marks good enough for the Alphabet to give it another go.

Oliver is also an author who has campaigned around the world to improve the eating habits of children. He and Ryan Seacrest are exec producers.
