ABC has canceled the comedy series “Home Economics” after three seasons, Variety has learned. In addition, the new series “High Potential” starring Kaitlin Olson is now slated to debut in fall 2024.
“Home Economics” aired its third season finale in January of this year, which will now serve as its series finale. The series was one of just two ABC shows that remained on the bubble, with the other being the spinoff “The Rookie: Feds.”
“Home Economics” was a solid performer for ABC but never quite a breakout. ABC picked up the show for a 13 episode third season but then declined to expand the order beyond that. Fans of the show were given a glimmer of hope over the summer when ABC reportedly extended the casts’ options, meaning they were still considering a fourth season, but it ultimately did not come to pass.
Per the official series description, “Home Economics” followed the “relationship among three adult siblings: one in the 1%, one middle-class and one barely holding on.”
The series starred Topher Grace as Tom, Caitlin McGee as Sarah, Jimmy Tatro as Connor, Karla Souza as Marina and Sasheer Zamata as Denise. Shiloh Bearman also appeared as Gretchen along with Jordyn Curet as Shamiah, Chloe Jo Rountree as Camila, JeCobi Swain as Kelvin, and Lidia Porto as Lupe.
The series was created by writers Michael Colton and John Aboud. They also serve as executive producers alongside Grace, Jason Wang, Eric and Kim Tannenbaum, Tucker Cawley, Julieanne Smolinski and Victor Nelli. Lionsgate and ABC Signature co-produce.
“High Potential” was originally ordered to series in May, but the return to production now that the writers’ strike has ended means that networks and studios will be making decisions on how best to allocate soundstage space and crews. With the fall schedule already set and returning shows being pushed largely to midseason, “High Potential’s” move to next year is not unexpected.
Based on the French series “Haut Potentiel Intellectuel (HPI),” Olson stars as “a single mom with an exceptional mind, whose unconventional knack for solving crimes leads to an unusual and unstoppable partnership with a by-the-book seasoned detective (Daniel Sunjata).”
