The ABC show, United We Fall brought in a different kind of family among the audience. The family sitcom that debuted on July 15 of this year has won many hearts in just its pilot episode. Further, the show has turned as the most-watched show ever in the history of the network. However, the fate of United We Fall Season 2 is still in the dark. Unfortunately, ABC is no longer in the state to continue with United We Fall Season 2. Check out the reason behind this firm decision and whether we can expect more from Ryan’s family in the future or not.
United We Fall, created by Julius Sharpe, is a sitcom on ABC. It follows Bill Ryan (Will Sasso) and Jo Rodriguez (Christina Vidal Mitchel), husband and wife, whose life changes when Bill’s mother moves in. The couple tries hard to raise their family. However, their approach annoys Bill’s mother, Sandy Ryan (Jane Curtin). Meanwhile, Jo’s brother Chuy Rodriguez (Guillermo Diaz) often criticize his sister for not taking care of her children. As most of the time, Jo spent her time handling her family business Chuy & Sons Construction.
United We Fall Season 2: Is It Renewed?
Unfortunately, ABC has recently canceled United We Fall Season 2 just after airing one season. It was first announced as ABC’s primetime part. However, it didn’t air since ABC had ordered it in May 2019. But, as the show premiered on ABC, it soon becomes the most-watched show on the network. It has gained 4.2 million viewers and broke all records of ABC.
Sudden Drop In Ratings
However, after its pilot episode, the show’s performance turned steadily, following 3.4 million viewers till its finale. Thus drop in ratings can be the reason why the network has decided to drop the show. Its demo ratings have slightly decreased from 0.6 to 0.5 till its finale.
Sony Pictures Television Has Turned Their Back
United We Fall was produced by ABC Studios and Sony Pictures Television that ran till August 26, 2020. Despite its fantastic start, ABC has decided to remove the show from its future lineup. One such reason for this cancelation is because Sony TV has turned their back to produce comedy series on the network. Sony TV would not make any comedy series on ABC. So, it’s one of the reasons why United We Fall Season 2 has been canceled.
One more reason behind this decision is the drop-in financial model of ABC. Not only Sony TV but Lionsgate TV has also decided to stop selling its comedy series on ABC. However, both the studios are looking for a better solution. Further, we heard straight from the horse mouth that Lionsgate TV has discussed with Disney’s ABC to develop a more financially stable business model. If ABC fails to do that, then we believe more shows would say a final goodbye to the network.
Is There Any Chance Of United We Fall Season 2?
Well, currently, it looks like the show has been sandwiched between the independent studio’s Sony TV and broadcasting network ABC’s financial dispute. However, if Sony Pictures Television wants to bring back another season, we can expect the second season to return once again. But, now everything is in Sony TV’s hands.
