No Season 2 for the midseason comedy.
May 19, 2020
Reports are out that Outmatched has been cancelled by Fox after one season. The sad news arrives just under two months after the comedy wrapped its freshman run, which failed to make much of an impact in the ratings and ended up drawing lackluster reviews.
The series stars Maggie Lawson and Jason Biggs as blue-collar workers Cay and Mike who are raising four kids. But the couple have their hands especially full with the demands of three of them who happen to have a very high IQ. Though it may be overwhelming at times, the couple are committed to bringing a sense of normalcy to their kids' unconventional childhoods, even if they can't always related to their little geniuses.

Watched one or two episodes, and it was too much like trying to be like a Young Sheldon knockoff.
And the acting and premise were awful.

I knew this was coming. I really wanted to like this show. We found it almost painful to watch. The acting was stiff & the episodes were not really funny. I think we gave it 3 Shows & then dropped it. Could have been so much better..

The kids ruined this show..... One prodigy. okay.. but then that's too much like "Sheldon"... 2 is a stretch... 3.. just ridiculous... and a 4th "dummy" child was rather pathetic.

Another show I enjoyed to watch is gone. At this rate, there will be nothing on regular TV for me to see.

I actually didn’t mind this show. They tried something different. Honestly I thought the parents were funny but not the kids.

It's a shame, the show wasn't bad when it was about the kids. Completely uninteresting when it focused on the parents, though… And did they really need to make the father this stupid?

Like Jason Biggs. Like Maggie Lawson. Like a good sitcom. But wow this was just bad. I really tried to like it.

Another one bites the dust for Maggie Lawson. This one was terrible, probably the worst of the flops. I have to admit, unlike the others, I couldn’t even watch one episode.

Good. I feel bad for Maggie Lawson, but Jason Biggs is a disgusting human being. I'd ask how he continues to get work, but then I remember that it's Hollywood and they cheer the things this guy has done and said in the past.

Loved the parents, hated the snotty genius kids. It won’t be missed. Hopefully Maggie Lawson and Jason Biggs will land on better shows.
