The Real O’ Neals are really coming back.
ABC announced it has ordered a second season of the family comedy, which stars Martha Plimpton and Jay R. Ferguson. The freshman laugher was one of several shows on the bubble going into upfront week that begins Monday in New York.
While the network has renewed most of its shows like Black-ish, Fresh Off the Boat,The Goldbergs, Grey’s Anatomy, and How to Get Away with Murder, there’s no word on the fate of Agent Carter, Castle, The Catch, Dr. Ken, The Muppets, Galavant, American Crime, and Last Man Standing.
In its short run on ABC as a midseason comedy, The Real O’Neals has averaged 4.55 million viewers and a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49.
ABC also picked up two new comedies: an untitled laugher from Spin City scribe Sarah Dunn that stars Katy Mixon (Mike and Molly), and Downward Dog featuring Fargo’s Allison Tolman.
The former is about a confident, unapologetic, plump wife and mother of three, who raises her flawed family in the wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut.
Downward Dog is based on the web series of the same name, about a struggling millennial name Nan but told from the point of view of her lonely and philosophical dog, Martin.
ABC will present its fall 2016 lineup to advertisers on May 17.
