From 2003 to 2005, Jason Ritter played Kevin Girardi on Joan of Arcadia, which was cancelled after two seasons on CBS. On that show, his character’s sister Joan (Amber Tamblyn) was visited by God, who gave her assignments which at first seemed inconsequential, but generally caused positive ripples in the lives of those she touched. This year, Ritter debuts on ABC as another Kevin. Now, it is his turn to complete celestial assignments. Can he work miracles? Will Kevin (Probably) Saves the World be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An ABC comedy-drama from creators Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, the Kevin (Probably) Saves the World TV show stars Jason Ritter, JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Kimberly Hébert Gregory, Chloe East, J. August Richards, Dustin Ybarra, and India de Beaufort. The fantasy TV series centers on Kevin Finn. While he is not the world’s worst person, Kevin is self-involved and materialistic. While wallowing in his own misery, Kevin experiences a sequence of unbelievable events, then meets Yvette (Gregory), his heavenly guide. She informs him that he is the last of the 36 righteous born into his generation. Without the 36, everyone on Earth will begin to lose the only thing keeping them going — hope. Now, it is up to Kevin to “power up” his soul by committing selfless acts of kindness, so he can locate and anoint the next 36 and (probably) save the world.
