ABC believes in American Housewife. The network has renewed the Wednesday night TV show for a third season.
American Housewife stars Katy Mixon, Diedrich Bader, Meg Donnelly, Daniel DiMaggio, Julia Butters, Carly Hughes, and Ali Wong. The single-camera sitcom centers on Katie Otto (Mixon). As an average wife and mother, she prefers to stand apart from Westport CT’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 kids, Taylor (Donnelly), Oliver (DiMaggio), and Anna-Kat (Butters) internalize the family’s values, so they don’t end up carbon copies of their neighbors.
