The network is poised to wrap up negotiations that would see the series return for a second season, TV Guide reports.
Breaking In premiered in April. Set at a security firm, the series centres on a team that is assigned to test the defences of various high tech security systems. In addition to Slater, the show featured Odette Annable and Michael Rosenbaum.
In May, Fox passed on renewing the half-hour show. However, the network announced today that the series will return after a number of meetings between show producers and Fox.
Together, the network and showrunners developed a new direction for the comedy, which is designed to ensure Breaking In a more successful run the second time around.
Last week, Annable insisted that the series could still return, noting that Fox had extended its options on the cast.
The first season of Breaking In ended on May 17.
