FOX cancelled the Bless the Harts animated series after two seasons but there’s no need to work about the future of Duncanville. The show has already been renewed for a third season. Will the second season’s ratings justify this vote of confidence by FOX? Stay tuned.
The Duncanville TV show stars Amy Poehler, Ty Burrell, and Riki Lindhome, with Rashida Jones, Wiz Khalifa, Joy Osmanski. Guest voices include Adam Scott, Aubrey Plaza, Retta, Nick Offerman, Gerald McRaney, Natalie Palamides, John Viener, Horatio Sans, and Natalie Palamides. It’s an animated family comedy series that centers around an extraordinarily average 15-year-old boy. Like most teens his age, Duncan (Poehler) can see the wonders of adulthood on the horizon but his reality is much more mundane. He’s always broke, driving with his mom riding shotgun (Poehler), cringing at his dad’s efforts to be cool (Burrell), and babysitting his little sister (Osmanski). In season two, the family takes a vacation; Duncan says the one thing no kid should ever say to their dad; Duncan and Kimberly are sent to therapy camp; Jing and Jack start a child birthday band together, with Annie managing them; and Duncan races stock cars.

What do you think? Do you like the Duncanville TV series on FOX? Are you glad that it’s been renewed for a third season?
I’d like to watch it, but too busy in the summer to watch TV. I’ve DVR’d a few episodes, but haven’t had time to watch them, and forgot to record a few more of them. Thumbs down Fox – save this show for the fall/winter/spring
I don’t know what it is, but for me the writing of the second season isn’t on par with season 1 so I can understand the viewership dropping the way it has.
