Fox couldn't keep a high-tech security team from "Breaking In" to its broadcast schedule.
The comedy, which stars Christian Slater, Bret Harrison, Alphonso McAuley and Odette Annable, was cancelled in May. Now Fox has renewed the show for a 13-episode second season beginning in 2012, Fox announced Thursday.
That should make the show's small but loud fan base happy.
"'Breaking In' is a creatively vibrant and wildly adventurous comedy," Fox president of entertainment Kevin Reilly said. "We are looking forward to bringing it back for a second season and continuing our relationship with this incredibly talented cast and these fantastic creators: Adam Goldberg and Seth Gordon. We can't wait to see where they take these characters next year."
The workplace comedy follows Slater's slick security firm boss, Oz, and the team of oddball recruits who often break in to client's property to test their existing security. They also play riotous tricks on each other.
Annable will pull double duty for Fox: She will star in the network's series "House" beginning this fall.
