ProductionEdit

From June 2009 through November 2011, Kendra Wilkinson starred on Kendra, a reality series that aired on E!. Upon the conclusion of the series' fourth season, the network and Wilkinson parted ways as the network "went in a different direction" with its programming. In March 2012, WE tv confirmed that the network had ordered fourteen episodes of Kendra on Top. Production began later that month.[6] On October 22, 2012, AMC Networks, the owners of WE tv, announced that the series has been renewed for a second season. Along with the renewal, it was revealed that the first season acquired 7.5 million total viewers.[7][8] Season 2 premiered on September 13, 2013.[3][9] As with the first season, it is bookended by hour-long premiere and finale episodes.[3]
