Caitlyn Jenner Gets Candid About Dating in New 'I Am Cait' Trailer (VIDEO)

With one season of I Am Cait down and nine months of womanhood behind her, Caitlyn Jenner is ready to get even more personal with viewers. In fact, in the second season, which will premiere in March, she delves into whether she wants to date women, and spars with friends on her conservative political views.

It's no secret that the LGBT community isn't super thrilled with Cait's stance on gay marriage or her Republican affiliation. Not surprisingly, it was one of the first things to come up when she attended a press panel at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on Thursday. Considering this was her first time fielding questions from such a large group of reporters, Caitlyn did a pretty damn good job of spinning the topic in a favorable way.

Well, I really don't want to heavily get into politics because, certainly, we have enough politics going on in the United States right now. But it's kind of, I try to tell the girls [friends like Candis Cayne and Chandi Moore], it's kind of good, if the Republicans haven't been very good on this issue -- which I agree, they haven't been. Certainly the Democrats have been better on this issue -- isn't it good that they have an ally, somebody on the team that can go in there and maybe change their minds? That's a good thing. That's kind of the way I look at it.

I Am Cait's second season takes Caitlyn and a slew of friends on a cross-country road trip to meet members of the transgender community on a national level. Candis admits that sometimes that bus (which even gets a visit from Kris Jenner!) did get a little too close for comfort at times, saying, "[The bus] got smaller and smaller and smaller."

Still, Caitlyn seems hopeful that by getting out there and talking to people, they can help keep the transgender conversation going and hopefully bridge relationships between communities. But she continues to make it clear that she's not a spokesperson, and she seemed incredibly sincere during the press panel.

If my celebrity helps in making it better for the next generation of trans people coming up, baby, I'm all in. I have no problem with it. I have been very blessed. I am the exception to the rule. I am not the rule in coming out. I've seen nothing but love.  People every day of my life come up and thank me. So I've been very, very blessed, but I know it's not that way for so many people in this community.

Check out the new trailer for I Am Cait to get a glimpse at just what went on during that wild road trip.
