Spike TV Renews 'Blue Mountain State'

by Aimee Deeken, posted Feb 26th 2010 12:45PM
Ed MarianoThe 'Blue Mountain State' football team will play another season, as Spike TV has renewed the sitcom, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The half-hour comedy, produced by Lionsgate TV, is little more than halfway through its first season and averaging about 1 million viewers (last week's episode drew 810,000).

'State' follows the antics of three freshman at a big football-centric Midwestern university. Of its star players, Sam Jones III (teammate Craig Shilo) is not expected to return for season 2 due to his arrest in October. The ex-'Smallville' actor (Clark Kent's BFF) was detained by federal authorities on charges of alleged possession and intent to sell 10,000 oxycodone pills. No word yet on whether his role will be recast.
