The Chuck Lorre comedy will continue in 2021-2022.
February 17, 2021
CBS announced today that Bob Hearts Abishola has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes midway through the comedy's sophomore run. A video was posted on the show's official Twitter account with stars Billy Gardell and Folake Olowofoyeku thanking fans for their support.
From creator Chuck Lorre, the half-hour series follows a middle-aged man from Detroit who, after a heart attack lands him in the hospital, unexpectedly falls for his cardiac nurse, who is a Nigerian immigrant.

.. ya know.. they could improve the sense of chemistry by having a bit more PDA.. nothing overt or over the top -- keep it PG rated (not even PG13). If you watch this show, Bob and Abishola almost NEVER actually touch one another. And when they do.. it's nothing more than sitting on that stupid bench and holding hands like one would with a child when trying to explain something. More couple-oriented hand-holding, hugging, sitting close to each other, arm around one another... all that would help foster a less "scripted" sense to their relationship. Honestly, the Bob's sister had more chemistry with that warehouse worker.
And I HATE Swoozy Kurts (aka the Crypt Keeper), and Leslie whatshisname (aka the Keebler Elf). Thank god they aren't on this show and they are isolated on that HORRIBLE Bialik show that I can avoid like the plague and know that it's sure to get canceled.

I really love this show and The Neighborhood. There just haven't been any newer comedies that I find even watchable, much less enjoyable, other than those 2. I was thrilled to see them both renewed.
That said, after reading the comments posted, asdasdasdad made some points I have to agree with. The romantic chemistry is lacking. Luckily for us, my family and I still find the show great. Now though, I can only wonder how much better it would be if they managed some chemistry!

I'm glad to see this show renewed. An unlikely core relationship? Maybe, but the actors make it work. It's also an interesting glimpse into Nigerian culture.
Kudos to Chuck Lorre who recently has been bringing us sitcoms from the most unlikeliest corners of society.

I agree with asdasdasdad. I don't see the chemistry. It "feels" forced. Sad to see Billy Gardell reduced to this show, and now Diabetes Medication Commercials, after such a great run with Mike & Molly. Oh well.
Even though I am upset at losing Mike & Molly, Katy Mixon is pretty good on American Housewife!
Also miss Swoosie Kurtz from Mike & Molly. I liked her on Man with a Plan. And I don't think "Call me Kat" will last... even with her and Leslie Jordan. I miss Leslie Jordan from "The Cool Kids" - and also miss David Alan Grier, Martin Mull & Vicki Lawrence.
All these shows were so much better!!

I really like this show and am glad that it is being renewed. I have to admit that I agree with the person who said this could be 2 separate successful shows!! Now I am going to only see this perspective lol but I will still look forward to each new episode.

Everyone does a decent job on this show.. but... well.. there's merely a lack of any sense of cohesiveness between the characters. There's ZERO chemistry between Bob and Abishola. I mean ZERO. They could just as easily be two people who happen to be in line next to each other in line at the supermarket... pleasant toward one another, but no readily apparent connection. It's not a "bad" show per say... but I somewhat think it's remained due to diversity more than anything. Honestly... if they dropped the "relationship" aspect and gave Abishola her own show centered around her family, it'd be a better show. Conversely... give Bob his own show centered around his family and it's the same as practically any sitcom that's ever aired.
