Imagine if we told you that your siblings would still be your roommates even when you’re all grown up. It brings back a mix of memories, doesn’t it? From wild adventures and occasional fights to shared secrets, not to mention the constant bickering. A show that brilliantly captures the essence of family dynamics, especially the bonds between siblings, is ‘Home Economics,’ created by Michael Colton and John Aboud.
This ABC original sitcom has garnered a solid 6.9/10 rating on IMDb and earned 65% approval on Google Critic Reviews. Produced by Jess Pineda and Kevin C Slattery, with heavyweights like Lionsgate and Tannenbaum Company involved, ‘Home Economics’ has had a successful run, spanning three seasons since it premiered in April 2021. However, there have been rumblings that this hit sitcom might have met its end after three seasons. But is it officially confirmed? Let’s delve into the details.
Home Economics: Is the ABC series not returning for Season 4?
ABC has made the official decision to cancel the series. As of January 2023, the third season’s finale marked the unexpected end of the franchise. This was quite surprising for fans, especially considering the show’s substantial following and the fact that it even had a spin-off.
Throughout its run, ‘Home Economics’ consistently delivered strong viewership numbers for ABC. This led to the show being renewed for a third season, comprising 13 episodes. Unfortunately, further developments did not materialize. Despite the anticipation among fans for potential updates on a new season, no concrete information has emerged thus far. However, there remains a possibility of a spin-off. This could either take the form of a mini-comedy series derived from the original show or potentially explore separate spin-offs focusing on each of the three siblings.
While there hasn’t been any official word on the matter, there’s potential for a special reunion episode down the line. The series itself revolves around three adult siblings who continue to share a household, a setup considered unconventional in American culture. However, their dynamic is marked by an endearing quirkiness and peculiarities that never fail to bring on the laughter.
The trio comprises characters who are not only witty but also face diverse financial circumstances. One sibling belongs to the top echelon of wealth, another represents the floating middle class, while the third grapples with the challenge of making ends meet. The lead roles are portrayed by Caitlin McGee as Sarah, Jimmy Tatro as Connor, Topher Grace as Tom, Karla Souza as Marina, and Sasheer Zamata as Denise, with supporting actors JeCobi Swain as Kelvin and Jordyn Curet as Shamiah. ‘Home Economics’ spanned three seasons and is available for streaming on ABC, Lionsgate, and Amazon Prime Video.
