NEW YORK, NEW YORK — After six episodes following the frenzied drama and incredible aquarium builds of Wayde King and Brett Raymer's family business, Animal Planet has ordered a second season of the series "Tanked," adding ten brand-new episodes that will premiere in Spring 2012. Casting for the second season is also currently in progress. The inaugural season of "Tanked" delivered 789,000 P2+ viewers, and the finale delivered nearly one million P2+ viewers (955,000).

The wet and wonderful world of "Tanked" introduces viewers to some of the most amazing and creative tank and aquariums builds for top celebrities, luxury hotels, Fortune 500 businesses, private homes and millionaire homeowners, and are filled with some of the most extraordinary aquatic wildlife from around the globe. The larger-than-life duo of Wayde and Brett are business partners, brothers-in-law, best friends, pranksters and constant rivals who are determined to create, build, and unveil some of the most over-the-top aquariums the world has ever seen. But it's not just about the boys—it's a family affair, because they're joined by Heather, Wayde's wife and Brett's sister; Brett and Heather's father, "The General"; and a motley crew of designers, engineers, installers, cleaners and builders—making them one big dysfunctional, brash and super-sized family.

"Tanked" is produced for Animal Planet by Nancy Glass Productions. Nancy Glass and Eric Neuhaus are the executive producers, and Katie Sullivan is co-executive producer for Nancy Glass Productions, and Melinda Toporoff is the executive producer for Animal Planet. "Tanked" was developed by Animal Planet's Charlie Foley.
