Revolving around a single dad and daughter who’ve moved to the “prefect community,” Suburgatory typically airs Wednesday nights on the ABC network. The cast includes Jeremy Sisto, Jane Levy, Cheryl Hines, Carly Chaikin, Ana Gasteyer, Alan Tudyk, Rex Lee, and Allie Grant.

The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    There are a lot of wonderful dramas but still not much comedy worth watching. Suburgatory is a great show! Please bring it back for another season!

  2. Jessica says

    Definitely renew,
    the show is great and very funny! Plus, the season finale left too many cliffhangers to not have a season 3!

    I think it’s a great show. It doesn’t rely on fowl humor, or just plain shock laughs. I really would hate to see it go. Not only do I love it, but on Wednesday nights, my family actually stays together for a little while to watch Suburgatory. It is one of my favorite shows on television right now. Definitely worth renewing

    Loved it from day one! Jane Levy is THE BEST, it’s an all around great cast, the music is fantastic, it always makes me laugh. The season finale even made me cry! C’mon abc, don’t leave us hanging! Their story obviously doesn’t end there. Things need to get straightened out and fall into place, we need at least another season, and we need more closure. Bring it back!
