Veteran actress Patricia Heaton is best known for her roles on long-running sitcoms Everybody Loves Raymond and The Middle. However, she has also starred in comedy series like Back to You and Room for Two that have only lasted one season apiece. How will her newest CBS show perform in the ratings? Will Carol’s Second Act be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A multi-camera sitcom, the Carol’s Second Act TV series stars Patricia Heaton, Kyle MacLachlan, Ito Aghayere, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Sabrina Jalees, and Ashley Tisdale, with Lucas Neff recurring. This comedy series revolves around Carol Kenney (Heaton), a woman in her 50s who has embarked on a unique second act after raising her children, getting divorced, and retiring from teaching. She pursues her dream of becoming a doctor. On Carol’s first day at work at Loyola Memorial Hospital, she’s prepped with an abundance of life experience, people skills, talent, and enthusiasm — advantages that her co-workers don’t immediately appreciate.
