The drama will not return for a second season.
May 13, 2022
It is being reported that Fox has cancelled Our Kind of People after just one season. The news comes four months after the drama wrapped its 12-episode freshman run, which ultimately garnered mixed reviews and failed to draw a sizeable audience.
Inspired by Lawrence Otis Graham's acclaimed book, "Our Kind of People: Inside America's Black Upper Class," the series follows a strong-willed, single mother named Angela who sets out to reclaim her family's name in the aspirational world of Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard. In the historical stronghold where the affluent and powerful black elite play, Angela wants to make an impact with her new haircare line for black women. It isn't long, however, before she discovers a dark secret about her mother's past that turns her world upside-down and changes the community forever.

I liked the idea behind the show, but watching it was kind of boring. I couldn't get into it, managed to only watch 2 or 3 episodes. I hope things work out for her after leaving a show that is doing well to take on a lead role only to be canceled so quickly

I absolutely LOVED this show, but easy come easy go, and more will air in the future.

Didn't surprised me that this show is cancelled. It was nothing like Empire. It was badly acted and the show was all over the place jumping from one scene to the next.

I did not watch because I knew it was going to most likely get canceled and I did not want to invest in a 1 season show. If it has been given a second season I would have watched over the summer.

@floridaAl so you're essentially saying it wasn't renewed because of racism? Ok, yeah cool. *eyeroll*

CAST WAS NOT DIVERSE. DIVERSITY IS A STRENGTH.

This show bombed because nobody watched … if enough black ppl watched it wouldn’t be cancelled …

@floridAL ... So your analysis is that the show bombed because white people didn't watch it? Really? Well, as long as you found someone to blame. That's really all that matters.

I became more and more interested in this show as each episode unfolded. The acting and writing were very good and the set direction and costuming were beautiful to view. I really wonder if the reason this didn't draw a bigger audience might have been because White audiences weren't that interested in seeing a portrayal of the lives of extremely wealthy Black characters. In any case, I like the main character, Angela (Yaya DaCosta), who left Chicago Med to take on this role. I hope she can return to that show if she wants to.
