Good news has fallen for Domestical economy viewers, as ABC has officially renewed the sitcom for a third season. Per Deadline, the series has been hovering in odds around the 0.3 mark for the past few weeks. They’re down a bit from the previous season, but apparently not to the point where ABC wasn’t willing to order more episodes.
The news comes at a time when many networks are realizing what is essentially a TV show massacre. At ABC, shows like queens and Promised land are coming to an end on the network, but several other shows have survived. Domestical economy was renewed alongside The Conners, big sky, A million little thingsand The good years. The network had already renewed other popular programs like Abbott Elementary School, The recruit, the good doctor, Station 19, Grey’s Anatomyand The Goldbergs.
This announcement also follows recent reports of star Topher Grace landing a role in another upcoming sitcom. He will return to his role as That 70s show like Eric Forman for That 90s show, a spin-off series set in the 1990s. Almost all of the main cast from the original series will be back alongside Grace. The actor previously cast doubt on his comeback, suggesting he had “a day job”, referring to his role in Domestical economybut even with the show’s renewal, the lineup worked.
“It’s on Netflix, and it features two of my great friends, Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith, who played my parents, and a whole new bunch of kids. I know some of the writers there, and I’m just like…I have a day job, unfortunately. But they’re amazing people,” Grace said.
The home economy will return
Meanwhile, Grace stood out as one of the stars of the ensemble cast of Domestical economy. The series also stars Caitlin McGee, Jimmy Tatro, Karla Souza and Sasheer Zamata. The series follows three adult siblings and their families, with each sibling part of the 1%, another middle class, and another barely coping.
Michael Colton and John Aboud created the series for ABC. The two also serve as executive producers along with Grace, Dean Holland, Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum, and Jason Wang. Jess Pineda and Kevin C. Slattery produce.
“We spend so much time together, probably more time together than with our real families during the season and it’s such a pleasure,” Grace said of the camaraderie he has with his co-stars from the series, by “Actually, I don’t know if they deploy on me, but I deploy them all the time!”
He added: “I’ve been on a dream team before and I know how rare that is. There’s just such a family feeling. You’re supposed to lie as an actor, but over these many episodes you can’t lie, you actually have to like people to portray that kind of thing.
Season 2 finale of Domestical economy will air on ABC on May 18, 2022. Season 3 does not yet have a premiere date.
