Fox is looking for more farmer wives.
The network has renewed reality dating series Farmer Wants A Wife for a second season. It revealed the news ahead of its Upfronts presentation in New York.
The renewal comes ahead of the season finale of the show, which has been averaging between 2-2.5M in overnight ratings, on May 17.

The production company, which was set up by Chris Culvenor and Paul Franklin, produces an Australian version of the show for Seven Network that has been successful since its own reboot.
Farmer Wants A Wife is exec produced by Paul Franklin, Chris Culvenor, Eden Gaha and David Tibballs.
