Comedy Central will bring animated reality series Drawn Together back for a second season, the network said Thursday.

Season No. 2 will premiere during the fourth quarter of 2005 and consist of 15 episodes, including a "reunion" special, Comedy said.

Through its first two episodes, Drawn Together has averaged 2.3 million total viewers two-plus and a 1.4 Nielsen Media Research rating in the viewers 18-49 demographic, the network said.

"Drawn Together has been an immediate success for the network and our viewers, and I am excited that we will be able to continue the adventure with a second season," Comedy senior vice president of original programming and head of development Lauren Corrao said in a prepared statement.

"Suffice it to say, the animated characters created by Matt [Silverstein] and Dave [Jeser] have many, many more escapades, contests, musical spoofs and other disorders to look forward to before we let them out of that house," she added.
