Former child stars Corey Haim
and Corey Feldman
are on the outs, but this hasn't stopped A&E from renewing the duo's reality series, The Two Coreys
The show's previous season ended with Haim and Feldman butting heads, and show producers claim the two have not spoken two each other since filming stopped. For the show's second run, the former buds will meet up in Los Angeles in order to see if their friendship is worth saving or not.
''The first season of the show exposed some deep-seated issues between the Coreys, which really only started coming to the surface in the final episodes,'' Robert Sharenow, senior vp nonfiction and alternative programming at A&E, said. ''This season promises more drama, tension and laughs as they struggle to make their relationship and careers work.''
The second season, which will be comprised of 10 episodes, of The Two Coreys
is expected to hit the screen in Spring.
While news of the show's renewal went mainstream only this week, Corey Feldman had already mentioned it on a blog entry dated December 25. At the time, it seemed Feldman had doubts about doing the show for another season.
“The powers that be at the A&E network have ordered a second season of The Two Coreys
. Will I do it? Should I do it? Frustrating isn't it,” he wrote. “Let's just say we are currently having creative talks and negotiations to see if we can find a way to continue the show even given the broken state that Haim and my relationship is in.”
Corey Feldman also clarified that his issues with Corey Haim are the result of things that transpired after the first season aired, and not due to his wife Susie, who had been clashing with Haim throughout the show's debut run.
“Please note for the record this is not about or because of Susie, the problems [Corey Haim] and I have in real life occurred after the show was over and do not have anything to do with the banter from last season,” Feldman explained. “That said, if we do come back the next season will have to be darker, edgier, and more real because that's where it's at.”
