During the 2019-20 season, American Housewife was the lowest-rated ABC comedy to be renewed. Meanwhile, higher-rated sitcoms like Schooled, Bless This Mess, and Single Parents were all cancelled. Is American Housewife nearing the end of its run? Will this family comedy be cancelled or renewed for season six? Stay tuned. *Status Update Below.
American Housewife stars Katy Mixon, Diedrich Bader, Meg Donnelly, Daniel DiMaggio, Giselle Eisenberg, and Ali Wong. The sitcom centers on Katie Otto (Mixon), a confident and unconventional mother from the wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut. Katie wants to “keep it real” stand apart from her community’s “perfect” parents and their entitled children. Katie’s logic-driven husband, Greg (Bader), supports her efforts as best he can. Together, they try to make sure that their three kids — headstrong Taylor (Donnelly), snarky Oliver (DiMaggio), and obsessive-compulsive Anna-Kat (Eisenberg) — understand their family’s old-fashioned values, so they don’t end up carbon copies of their neighbors.
