The show, which starred Christian Slater, Bret Harrison and Odette Annable, was cancelled by Fox after one season earlier this year.
However, the stars' options have now been extended until November 15, Deadline reports.
Fox has also reportedly taken the unusual step of covering some of the cost of the extension. The production company Sony Pictures TV will pay the remainder.
The news suggests that Breaking In could end up returning with new episodes.
Reports that Fox was considering renewing Breaking In for a second season first began to circulate in May.
