In parallel universes, Joe has three different careers as a nurse, police, and rockstar. He also has a different set of friends and family in each universe, depicting the way how things change and stay the same. However, no matter what happens, Joe is always left messy, excited, tough, and unpredictable. So, will the series return for a second season? Keep reading ahead to find out!
Ordinary Joe: Renewed By NBC?
The first installment of Ordinary Joe concluded in January 2022. And unfortunately, NBC confirmed that the show would not be returning for a second season on March 4.
The decision was not a big surprise as the drama turned out to be the network’s lowest-rated series. The show managed to gross a below-average rating of 6.8/10 on IMDB and 50% on Rotten Tomatoes. Hence, it is disappointing to inform the fans that ordinary Joe has been canceled. And there is very little possibility of the show’s revival as it could not perform well on the network. However, there is a slight possibility of the show’s return if another network picks up the show in the future.
How Did Ordinary Joe End?

Eric and Mallory’s baby was born in a pizza shop. Amy told Joe at the hospital that she was moving to Miami with her family. However, Joe asked Amy to marry him and stay.
Further, Musician Joe had a dream about his father being in an accident. He was taken to the hospital after having visions of his other two lives.
