When ‘Home Economics’ first released in April 2021, it got people really excited as it hits the sweet spot for fans who love comedy series and family drama. The show revolves around the Hayworth siblings, who are in very different phases of their lives, personally and financially. While Tom and Sarah struggle with finances, their younger brother Connor makes big bucks. The show is about their dysfunctional but loving relationship as they get each other through the peaks and valleys in life. The series is co-created by John Aboud and Michael Colton and is inspired by the real-life experiences of the latter.
The show has received a lot of love from the viewers for highlighting relatable issues such as finances in relation to family dynamics. The equation between the three siblings has been handled very well and packs a comedic punch. The interesting characters show a lot of promise to carry the series through multiple seasons. However, a few people felt that the show could have offered sharper comedy. Nevertheless, the series seemed to have already gathered a decent fanbase that would like to see the story of the Hayworths continue. So, are you waiting for a word on season 2? Here is everything we’ve got!
Home Economics Season 2 Release Date
‘Home Economics’ season 1 premiered on April 7, 2021, on ABC, with the season wrapping up after seven episodes on May 19, 2021. Each episode of the first season is 20-21 minutes long.
With regards to the second season, here is what we’ve found. On May 14, 2021, the ABC comedy-drama was given an order for the second season. Although it does not have a stellar number of viewers, the series has received strong ratings, which seem good enough for the network to give it another chance. Even the long-running series ‘The Goldbergs’ took more than one season to establish itself and has recently been greenlit for season 9.

Therefore, it is no surprise that ‘Home Economics’ shows a lot of promise, especially as it includes popular faces such as ‘That 70s Show’ alum Topher Grace and YouTube sensation-turned-actor Jimmy Tatro. However, a release date for season 2 has not been disclosed yet. The first season reportedly began filming in early February 2021, which means the episodes for season 1 were ready to begin airing in just two months. But like most TV shows, it seems that the series might return after a year. If that happens, fans can expect ‘Home Economics’ season 2 to release sometime in Spring 2022.

Home Economics Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
As the first season comes to a close, we learn that no matter how hard Connor tries to act cool about his divorce from Emily, he is still not over it. As for Emily, she ultimately drops the pretense and admits that she does not have a boyfriend.
