Will ‘The Real O’Neals’ Return for Season 3 on ABC?
“The Real O’Neals” Season 2 kicked off illustrating a significant drop of the audience (-41.36%), by gaining mere about 3.8 million viewers losing in numbers even to its May finale. In spite of this, millions of devoted fans strive to figure out whether or not “The Real O’Neals” will return for Season 3 on ABC, and if this happens, when will its release date? There has been no official announcement of renewal so far. But you can scroll down, in order to sign up for our notifications, or get acquainted with our forecast on the subject.
Despite the sufficient decreasing of the viewing audience during the season premiere, we still consider that “The Real O’Neals” deserves a third chance. In general, ABC remained satisfied with its comedy block, and, therefore, we suppose that the American Broadcasting Company will give a chance to “The Real O’Neals” to be renewed for a next season. But this will mainly depend on the reception by critics and viewers. Meanwhile, an overall score of the sitcom remains pretty strong. Currently, according to IMDB, “The Real O’Neals” has a score of 7.1 out of 10 based on over 2,700 user votes, 23 reviews from viewers and 6 reviews from critics. At the same time, according to TV.com, the comedy series holds the same score of 7.1 out of 10 based on 35 user ratings.
Let’s take a look at the television ratings in order to estimate the scale of the loss. The premiere episode of the second season has drawn 3.710 million viewers (-41.36% compared to last season’s premiere) with a 1.20 demo rating (-32.96%) among adults (18-49). For comparison, “The Real O’Neals” Season 1 averaged a 1.12 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.94 million total viewers (live + same day ratings). “‘The Real O’Neals’ scored the series’ highest-ever rating on Tuesday night in Adults 18-49 (1.2/4), topping its May finale by 9% (1.1/4 on 5/24/16),” according to ABC.
“The Real O’Neals” Season 2 picks up “when Kenny, Jimmy and Shannon head back to school, Kenny decides to start the first LGBT club at St. Barklay’s in honor of National Coming Out Day. After only recruiting one meek lesbian named Allison, Kenny pressures her into coming out to her family and ultimately realizes everyone’s journey isn’t as easy as his own,” according to ABC.
Renewal Potential and Notification of the Release Date
The second season of “The Real O’Neals” debuted on Oct. 11 on ABC and its debut drew 3.710 million viewers, as well as has been praised by the target audience in general. ABC has yet to announce the decision on renewal or cancellation of the comedy series. But despite the very significant drop of the viewing audience, we still hope that “The Real O’Neals” Season 3 would take place on ABC. However, we would like to wait for the official announcement by the television network.
