"'Kyle has thrilled us from its premiere night - we couldn't be happier to bring it back for a second season. Matt Dallas is truly a breakout star for us, and Kyle XY is truly a defining show. It was great to see Kyle succeed not just on cable, but on ABC, on iTunes, and on our broadband player."

KYLE XY rates as ABC Family�s most-watched original series in the history of the network in Total Viewers (2.08 million), Adults 18-34 (336,000) and Adults 18-49 (793,000).

As Kyle begins to show signs of brilliance, solving the mystery of his origin and potential abilities becomes the family�s mission.
