via press release

NEW YORK – August 20, 2012 – Following a successful first season, Sundance Channel's PUSH GIRLS has been renewed by the network for a second season, to premiere in 2013. The critically acclaimed series airs Mondays at 10PM, with the finale of the hit series airing August 27.  The announcement was made today by Sundance Channel General Manager and EVP, Sarah Barnett.

"Push Girls," which premiered on June 4, 2012 to widespread acclaim, follows the lives of five beautiful, intelligent and inspiring women as they challenge society's perception of what life is like in a wheelchair.  The Los Angeles Times said, "Once in a great while a show comes along to remind us that there are wonderful and valuable things the reality genre can do that scripted shows simply cannot. 'Push Girls' is one of those shows." 

Sarah Barnett commented, "At Sundance Channel, we are supremely proud of this series which has resonated strongly with our audience and critics. The extraordinary women of 'Push Girls' impressed us in season one and we are thrilled to move forward with them in season two.  At our network, we aim to deliver unscripted programming that demonstrates our commitment to putting the 'real' back in 'reality,'  'Push Girls' is a brave and honest show and we are thrilled to bring it back for a second season."

Executive Producer Gay Rosenthal commented, "We are thrilled to partner with Sundance Channel on a second season.  I'm grateful to these incredible women who allowed me the opportunity to share their lives and stayed open and honest through the filming process. I'm delighted that I get the chance to continue to share their stories with the world."
