“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 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.
