Jenner, 67, will chat with Sawyer on April 21 to mark the second anniversary of their 2015 interview, in which the Olympian spoke at length about identifying as transgender for the first time. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the hour-long “20/20” interview will coincide with the release of Jenner’s memoir, The Secrets of My Life.
Details on the specifics of the interview are minimal, but the two have a lot to catch up on. In the two years since the first “20/20” interview, Jenner has become a bona-fide icon for the trans community with her own E! reality series, “I Am Cait.” Her TV appearances include Amazon’s “Transparent” and “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
Meanwhile, she’s also become a lightning rod for controversy. The longtime Republican was a supporter of President Donald Trump during the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and attended the inauguration in January. Last month, she changed her tune somewhat, criticizing Trump’s decision to roll back federal protections for trans students as “a disaster” in a tweeted video.
The hour-long “20/20” interview will air April 21 on ABC.
