It is being reported that ABC has cancelled Home Economics after three seasons. The comedy was one of two shows from the network's 2022-2023 lineup that was awaiting a renewal decision.

The half-hour series premiered in 2021 as a midseason entry with a short 7-episode order. Season 2 returned in the fall, and after a solid start it was quickly topped up to a full season of 22 episodes. Season 3 scaled back a bit to 13, airing its now-series finale back in January of this year.

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.
