The Jason Ritter drama will not return.
May 11, 2018
It is being reported that ABC has cancelled Kevin (Probably) Saves the World after just one season. The news is not a complete surprise after the network previously declined to give the new drama a full season.
The hour-long series premiered as part of ABC's fall lineup last October, and while it received a mostly-positive reception from critics, it struggled to find an audience on Tuesday nights. In November the network extended the show's run by only three episodes, which raised eyebrows due to it being short of a typical back-order for a fall drama.
Jason Ritter stars as the titular character, Kevin Finn, who is a self-absorbed man down on his luck and on a perilous path to despair. When he heads back home to stay with his twin sister and niece, an unlikely celestial being appears to him and tasks him with a mission to save the world, giving Kevin a new purpose in life.

Hopefully some other company (doubtful to be a network) realizes that ABC is staffed by morons and picks this up.

I'm so sad this has been canceled. I loved this show.

This was a great show that people never even knew about.
Yet another case of an A+ product with a D- promotional and placement. Here's hoping another network swoops in and saves this. They clearly knew how to make a good tv show, episode after episode was top notch.

It’s amazing how every show I seem to truly love because of its spiritually good values always seems to gets cancelled. Anyone remember Joan of Arcadia, Eli Stone? Both similar shows to doing good deeds for God and both cancelled by Season 2. Kevin didn’t even make it to Season 2. This show was my favorite this year and I couldn’t wait until it came on each week. It was funny, warm, caring, endearing, uplifting, and even motivated me to pray when I watched it. Yet, like another person suggested, the shows that are kept and renewed time after time deal with murder, crime, bloodshed, violence, sex, and well I’m sure you get the point. I’m not sure if anyone knows this but there’s a show debuting next season called God Friended Me which stars the guy from the cancelled show The Mayor and is about God actually friending him on Facebook. Does anyone want to guess how long it will last? But I’m sure if they made a show called God Killed Me it would probably last 10 seasons.

Yet another show we could watch with our 10 year old. So hard to find something to watch as a family. When we do, it gets cancelled. not every show has to be edgy, violent and sexual. I like that as well but I want to watch some shows with my son as well.

Brooklyn 99, Alex, Inc., now Kevin. I should just post my DVR schedule so they can cancel everything I watch.
Why can't we have a show like Kevin that's actually optimistic about life? No doubt they'll replace it with something nasty and jaded that sucks a little more joy out of the world.

Very disappointed in this. This was my favorite new show. I hope another network picks it up.

Seemed like a fun show, didn't start it because of the likely hood of cancellation but might give it a watch still if reviews seem decent. To many other great shows to invest time on something sub par or just meh/good.

F*** YOU ABC!!!
This show was great!
Retards making retarded decisions to make room for more retarded reality shows.

Are there any shows ABC keeps? Good shows are often cancelled y this network, I guess what the viewers should do is ban ABC shows to see how it goes.
