Second Season Follows Caitlyn Jenner as She Steps Out Into the World and Opens Up to New Ideas and Experiences, Including a Cross-Country Road Trip with Her Tribe of Girlfriends and Dating for the First Time as a Transgender Woman
Pasadena, CA -- January 14, 2016 -- The first season of the critically-acclaimed documentary series "I Am Cait" followed Caitlyn Jenner as she sought her new normal living life as a transgender woman. The series sparked an unparalleled global conversation regarding the transgender community and the many issues that they face. Letting her guard down for the first time, Caitlyn is also ready to have some fun and becomes more open and vulnerable to new ideas and unexplored facets of her life as a transgender woman, including dating and romance. Caitlyn is also confronted with challenges to her belief system that shake her to her core, as her close-knit group of friends leave no topic off limits. The discussions are heated and emotional, and in the end lead Caitlyn to a better understanding of herself and the transgender community. Through it all, Caitlyn strives to be the best person she can be, building even closer bonds with her friends, her community and her family. The second season of "I Am Cait" premieres Sunday, March 6 at 9pm ET/PT on E!
Caitlyn's tribe of friends includes Candis Cayne, Jennifer Finney Boylan, Chandi Moore, Kate Bornstein, Zackary Drucker and new friend Ella Giselle, an 18-year-old who's taken under the wings of the more mature ladies, who are her first transgender friends. This group of women love and support Caitlyn, but are finished tip-toeing around her for the sake of keeping the peace. Caitlyn is pushed to her limits when the ladies don't let go of the fact that she needs to reexamine her conservative political beliefs, her understanding of being transgender and her understanding of being a woman. Throughout the road trip, which covers LA to the Grand Canyon, Tulsa, Kansas City, New Orleans and beyond, the ladies shine a light on the issues confronting them, open up about their own vulnerabilities and obstacles surrounding their relationships, careers and families. Caitlyn also begins to open up to new possibilities like a romantic relationship that she once never thought possible.
However, just because the ladies delve deeply into hot button topics, that doesn't mean they don't let loose and have a lot of fun. From line dancing in Oklahoma to a wild night on the town in New Orleans with Kris, the ladies live it up in style as they travel across the country.
Caitlyn also continues to treasure the moments she shares with her family, who appear throughout the series. As her relationships evolve, she focuses on staying connected with daughters Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Kendall and Kylie, as well as Kris, who are all there to support her through her ongoing journey. As the youngest daughters, Kendall and Kylie are examining their relationship with Caitlyn, especially when Kylie reveals that people take her to task for calling Caitlyn "Dad," and Kendall says that Caitlyn's number is saved under "Mad," a combo of mom and dad, in her phone.
