There will be a second term for Sarah Palin on Sportsman Channel.

The outdoor lifestyle service has ordered a 12-episode second season of Amazing America with Sarah Palin, which is slated to return to Sportsman's schedule in the first quarter of 2015.

Launched to much fanfare, the first season featured the former GOP vice president candidate and Alaska Governor hosting an anthology of stories in which she explored some of the most original, unique – and often inspiring – people, places and pastimes connected to America’s outdoor lifestyle.

Part of Sportsman's "Red, Wild and Blue" programming strategy, Amazing America helped propel the channel to triple-digit year-over-year growth in households and key male demographics, according to network officials.America Unpluggedis now occupying the Palin's show Thursday time slot.

“We’re really excited about the second season of Amazing America,” said Palin. “We’re working on stories about people that go above and beyond to help others, really inspirational stuff that will encourage the entire nation.”

“The return of Amazing America is great news for the network,” noted Marc Fein, executive vice president of programming and production. “Sportsman Channel has experienced tremendous growth this year and Sarah Palin’s involvement has proved to be an exciting boon for our network and programming initiatives.”

The second season of Amazing America will include 12 episodes featuring stories about inspiring American outdoor enthusiasts, craftsmen, as well as other notable Americans who go out of their way to help others. Craig Piligian, Jake Shelton and Brett Boydstun are executive producers for Pilgrim Studios.
