TBS has given the show an eight episode order for season 2 which they’re planning on airing in 2014. Season one is averaging 2.1 million viewers over its first three episodes.
“King of the Nerds has really clicked with TBS viewers, introducing such concepts as cosplay, quadcopter gaming and nerdcore rap to the uninitiated,” stated Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies. “We look forward to another round of hilarious competition when a new contingent of nerds sets out to win the crown.”
King of the Nerds features competitors from across the nerd spectrum facing challenges that test their intellect, ingenuity, skills and pop-culture prowess. The nerds live together in “Nerdvana,” competing first as teams before moving on to individual challenges. In the end, only one competitor will be named the quintessential master of all things nerdy, winning the $100,000 prize.
