After being written off of NBC's schedule, The Celebrity Apprentice has been given the go-ahead for a second season. According to Variety, the hit reality show proved to be a success. New episodes of the Mark Burnett-Donald Trump collaboration will begin in January 2009.

While ratings for The Celebrity Apprentice have not quite been what NBC was expecting, the show performed well enough to be granted a second season. NBC has stated that they have already been getting calls from high-profile celebrities who want to challenge themselves in season two.

Nothing has been announced as to when production for a second season of The Celebrity Apprentice will begin.
