Wildfire Burns On for ABC Family

ABC Family has picked up a second season of original drama series Wildfire, the network said Monday.

A total of 13 one-hour episodes will be produced for the second season -- with production set to begin this fall in New Mexico -- on the drama, based on the struggles of a young woman (Genevieve Cortese) to turn her life around and also starring Dennis Weaver (McCloud), Greg Serano (Kingpin), Nana Visitor (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Micah Alberti (All My Children), Andrew Hoeft, James Read, Ryan Sypek and Nicole Tubiola.

Wildfire has done tremendously well for us, drawing in key demos week after week and serving as a great launching pad for Beautiful People,” ABC Family president Paul Lee said in a prepared statement. “Gen Cortese is fabulous in the lead. Our audiences just love this show.”
