It's Official: Fox's Breaking In Renewed for Season 2!

Leave it to a band of thieves to steal a spot on Fox’s schedule.

Breaking In, the caper comedy that premiered solidly this past spring but failed to score a berth on the network’s 2011-12 lineup announced in May, has officially secured a 13-episode order for a midseason return, to air in 2012.

Breaking In is a creatively vibrant and wildly adventurous comedy,” Fox president Kevin Reilly said in a statement Thursday. “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.”

As part of the deal — which would actually pluck the Christian Slater-fronted series from the ashes a second time — Fox will also make a commitment to a comedy pitch by Breaking In co-creator Adam F. Goldberg, for a series described as an autobiographical take on growing up in the 1980s.

And what of Breaking beauty Odette Annable, who is joining House this season as a series regular? Per the terms of her deal to scrub in at the network’s medical drama, Annable can also appear on Breaking In. As such, the entire cast is expected to return.
