Ahead of the September 16 Season 2 finale, VH1 has picked up a third season of reality dating series Dating Naked.

The renewal comes amid strong ratings for the series, which explores the art of romance, free of preconceived notions, stereotypes – and clothes. Season 2 improved its time slot with VH1’s adult 18-49 demo by triple digits (+133%) vs year-ago levels, according to the network.
