VH1 has ordered a second season of reality parody series “Barely Famous” from sisters Erin and Sara Foster, the cabler announced Tuesday. Season 2 is set to debut in 2016.

“We’re so proud of Erin and Sara and the hilarious show that they’ve created,” said Susan Levison, EVP of original programming and production at VH1. “To see the show is to love the show, which smartly delivered on their original goal — to present a humorous take on reality TV and the rarified world of Hollywood. We’re thrilled to renew ‘Barely Famous’ and can’t wait to work with them on the second season.”

The series follows the duo through a satirical perspective of the LA lifestyle and reality television culture.

Barely Famous” is exec produced by the sisters, along with Jason Carbone and Nick Lee of Good Clean Fun, Oly Obst, Josh Lieberman and Kimberly Carver of 3 Arts, plus Levison, Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly, Fernando Mills and Tricia Biggio for VH1.

“We are thrilled that our audience fell in love with Erin and Sara and made ‘Barely Famous’ appointment television. And now, to have VH1 pickup Season 2 is icing on the cake,” Carbone commented. “We have lots more stories to tell and can’t wait to get to work.”

The first season, which premiered this March, consisted of six episodes, as will the sophomore season.
