ABC has renewed Secret Millionaire for a second season on the network. The series places successful businesspeople in a poor area of the country for a week, where they ultimately award their own money to the community and its heroes.
The show in its current form is a revival of Fox series The Secret Millionaire (minus the "The"), which aired briefly in 2008 before being canceled. Proving that timing can be everything, Secret Millionaire appears to have found success a time when similar shows such as Undercover Boss are drawing viewers.
There is no word yet on a return date for the show.
