Despite a short first season with less-than-impressive ratings, ABC renewed the Bless This Mess TV show for a second season. The network execs are no doubt hoping that the numbers will improve this time around. Will Bless This Mess be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.
An ABC single-camera comedy, Bless This Mess stars Lake Bell, Dax Shepard, Ed Begley Jr., Pam Grier, JT Neal, David Koechner, and Madison Curry. In the series, young newlyweds Mike and Rio Levine-Young (Shepard and Bell) give up their lives in New York City to run a farm in Nebraska that Mike’s great-aunt left to him. Once in cornhusker country, it doesn’t take them too long to figure out that living a simple life requires a lot of hard work.
