Fox looking to bring back Breaking In after basically canceling the show earlier this year.

The network is working on a 13-episode order of Christian Slater’s sitcom, which started strong in the ratings then dropped off during midseason and didn’t receive a second-season order. The decision is part of a larger deal with the show’s co-creator Adam F. Goldberg, who’s also working on a sitcom about growing up in the 1980s that sources say the network wants, but studio Sony Pictures TV is bundling the new project together with a revival of Breaking In (sort of like how you can’t get The Godfather box set without being stuck with Part III). The news marks the latest development in Slater’s TV comeback, which finally gets the actor a second season on a show. He started with NBC’s My Own Worst Enemy, then went to ABC’s The Forgotten, and then to Fox’s Breaking In.
