Home Economics is an American sitcom television series conceived by Michael Colton starring John Aboud. The sitcom series debuted on ABC Network on April 7, 2021 and made its mid-season debut in the 2020-2021 television season. Just days after the first season ended on May 19, 2021, the show was renewed for a second season which premiered on September 22, 2021.
Based on real events from show creator Michael Colton, Home Economics supports the touching, yet difficult and sometimes infuriating bond between three adult siblings. The show stars Topher Grace, Caitlin McGee, Jimmy Tatro, Karla Souza, Sasheer Zamata, Shiloh Bearman, Jordyn Starr Curet, JeCobi Swain, Chloe Jo Rountree, and Lidia Porto.
The ABC sitcom series is executive produced by Dean Holland, Topher Grace, Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum, Michael Colton, John Aboud, and Jason Wang, while Jess Pineda and Kevin C. Slattery serve as the show’s producers.
Although the series managed to release two seasons in just one year, it received mixed reviews from audiences and critics. Some people find it to be a poorly designed and lackluster series that wastes incredible talent by mostly referring to the cast members. While on the contrary, some viewers praised ABC for putting on a show like Home Economics for presenting such realistic issues and tackling those issues that are almost relatable to anyone.
In a review, Joel Keller of Decider explained, “The income disparities between the three siblings are a good way to enter the show, as a way to define and differentiate them. But what will carry the show is fleshing them out as characters and the bickering but loving relationship they have with each other. Yeah, it’s funny when they all chase each other down the street in some of the miniature car fleet Connor bought for his daughter. But jokes about their relative net worth really won’t get the show very far.
Variety’s Daniel D’Addario also applauded the tone and manner of the show, confessing, “It’s the start of a show with a healthy dose of concern and a good sense of who its three leads are. It’s worth hoping the series continues the instinct that led to developing three well-watched characters and refines the parts of the series that aren’t quite there yet.
That said, will the ABC bring the show back for another Home Economics season? Let’s find out below.
The first season simply went well despite ABC always renewing the sitcom series for a second episode, but that may not be the case anymore since the final season fell short. ratings. We assume the show can be removed so ABC can make room for a new show. But for now, nothing is confirmed yet, the series could even be renewed so let’s wait for an official update.
The first season was launched on April 7, 2021, followed by the second season which was released on September 22, 2021. The show has an overall slate of 17 episodes. As for the third season, nothing has been revealed yet but if it is renewed, we can expect to see the new episodes later this year. However, the future of the series remains uncertain.
If renewed for a third season, it’s likely that all of the central characters who appeared in the first and second will return for the eventual upcoming season, including—
- Topher Grace (as Tom)
- Caitlin McGee (as Sarah)
- Jimmy Tatro (as Connor)
- Karla Souza (as Marina)
- Sasheer Zamata (as Denise)
- Shiloh Bearman (as Gretchen)
- Jordyn Curet (as Shamiah)
- JeCobi Swain (as Kelvin)
- Chloe Jo Rountree (as Camila)
- Lidia Porto (as Lupe)
- Nora Dunn (as Muriel)
- Phil Reeves (as Marshall)
- Tetona Jackson (as Jojo)
If a third season does occur, the series will focus more on the relationships, mysteries, and lives of the characters while showing more humor. Viewers can’t wait to see the show as it will bring more laughter and fun.
