ABC announced today that Home Economics has been renewed for a second season. The good news comes six episodes into the comedy's freshman run, which premiered in April as a midseason entry.

Airing Wednesday nights after 'The Goldbergs', the show is off to a solid start. Its first episode gave the network the best lead-in retention among adults 18-49 of any new comedy in the 2020-2021 season.

Home Economics follows three adult siblings living very different lives. One is living comfortably as one of the 1%, one is part of the middle class, and the other is struggling to get by. Thus their complicated relationship can be heartwarming, super uncomfortable, and often frustrating.

Look for the Season 2 premiere in early-to-mid 2022.
