A&E has renewed freshman series Breakout Kings for a second season, which will likely debut in early 2012.

The action drama, in which U.S. Marshals use a task force of convicts to help catch other escaped criminals, aired its 13-episode first season earlier this year between March 6 and May 30. The show averaged a 0.7 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic.
