‘A Little Help with Carol Burnett’ is a reality web television series written by Carol Leifer and Jim Wise, and directed by Sandra Restrepo Considine for Netflix. In each episode, the host is accompanied by a panel of bright, brutally honest five- to nine-year-old kids, offering unsolicited advice to a visiting guest star. The featured celebrity shares his or her personal problems, which can be anything — ranging from marriage, dating, self-care to parenting issues. The panel of bright kids then pitches in to give feedback as per their own viewpoints.
Season 1 of ‘A Little Help’ is executive produced by Carol Burnett, Steve Sauer, and Allen Shapiro. A bit similar to the concept of ‘Kids Say the Darndest Things‘, it also draws inspiration from NBC’s talent show ‘Little Big Shots‘. It launched on Netflix in 2018 as part of the streaming network’s efforts to enhance its list of unscripted series, which also include ‘Ultimate Beastmaster‘ and ‘Queer Eye’ reboot. Since its release, fans have been wanting to know if ‘A Little Help’ season 2 will happen. Well, here’s everything we know about it.
A Little Help with Carol Burnett Season 2 Release Date: Renewed or Cancelled?
An entertaining and a light-hearted show, ‘A Little Help with Carol Burnett’ originally premiered on Netflix on May 4, 2018. The 12-episode reality show and Netflix original garnered more than 1 million views after its release, which is a bit low when compared to other talk shows.
Now, as far as its renewal is concerned, the status about its return was quite ambiguous for a while. However, the show’s production house, Dick Clark Productions, has already stated, “There will not be a second season of ‘A Little Help with Carol Burnett’ on Netflix.” Therefore, ‘A Little Help’ joins the slate of reality titles that did not manage to impress audiences. Some of these series include ‘The Joel McHale Show’ and ‘Norm MacDonald Has a Show’, all being canceled by the network.
The reasons for A Little Help’s cancellation is mainly because of its format which managed to garner only a luke-warm reception from viewers. Additionally, those who started watching it, did not make it to the last episode. In either case, ‘A Little Help with Carol Burnett’ season 2 is not happening and officially stands canceled.
