Christian Slater's 'Breaking In' set to return

Fans of the Fox series "Breaking In" were saddened when the network canceled it, along with several other shows, back in May.

Only a handful of episodes of the Christian Slater comedy aired (in most cases, following "American Idol") before Fox pulled the plug, with stories in the months since reporting that executives at the network were reconsidering their decision.

Now The Hollywood Reporter is saying that the show is on the verge of getting a second chance, with a 13-episode second season.

When Fox entertainment chief Kevin Reilly told members of the Television Critics Association earlier this month that "stranger things have happened" in regards to "Breaking In," he wasn't kidding. The network brought back "Family Guy" in 2005, after canceling it three years earlier.

Also, one of the series' stars, Odette Annable, will be pulling double duty for the network, as she recently scored a role on "House."

    Breaking in was hilarious! It was a terrible decision to cancel it. The chemistry of the cast was amazing, and the humor was off the chain. It needs to be brought back!

      Oh brother. On broken arrow Travolta kicked the livinShyt outa Slaters candy-ass. Slater is for women who are mentally about 13 years old having their first boy crush after getting their first panty-wet.

      Slater likes up his doookie-chute and doesnt care who gives it to him.

    I REALLLLLLY hope this comes back. My fiance and I loved this show and I was really disappointed when they cancelled it after only giving them 7 episodes immediately after Idol. They deserved a better slot. Hopefully this time they'll get it and FOX will promote it like they should have.

    Glad to hear Slater gets a break. I have like the last several shows (My Own Worst Enemy was great as was The forgotten) he was on and they got canned. He's a good actor and deserves this. The series was original and smart...

    This is a great show. One of the few my husband and I actually like. I'm glad they are bringing it back. 'Bout time Fox did something right.

    Yay!!! There aren't really any good comedies on tv nowadays (except you, Big Bang Theory... you rock!) so I'm glad this one is getting a second chance because it was really funny. I hope Fox does a better job with promoting it this time around. And let me suggst (like anyone from Fox will actually read my comment) that they start by airing the episodes that they already aired. If they kick off with the 7 they already aired and add on the 13 new episodes, they'll have a real, full season and give new people a chance to see and like this show.

    I didn't watch the show, but I do hope they bring it back. I met Christian Slater when he came to my base on a USO tour. I told him I loved the movie "Kuffs". This was after "my Own Worst Enemy" got cancelled, and he didn't seem like somebody who thought he was better than everybody else.

      Bring back Firefly and Lie to Me. They'll keep 20 different CSI, but cancel the good ones. What's wrong with you FOX?
