What’s This TV Show About?
An ABC family sitcom, Speechless stars Minnie Driver, John Ross Bowie, Mason Cook, Micah Fowler, Kyla Kenedy, and Cedric Yarbrough. Maya DiMeo (Driver) is a no-nonsense mom who will do anything for her family: husband Jimmy (Bowie), brainy Ray (Mason Cook), athletic Dylan (Kyla Kennedy), and teenager JJ (Micah Fowler), who has cerebral palsy. The third season kicks off with the DiMeo family and JJ’s aide, Kenneth (Yarbrough), heading to London to meet up with Maya’s estranged father, Martin (John Cleese), to ask him for some help. This year, Maya also has to come to terms with how fast her kids are growing up.
Season Three Ratings
The third season of Speechless averaged a 0.49 in the 18-49 year old demographic and 2.32 million viewers. Compared to season two, that’s down by 57% and 46%, respectively. Find out how Speechless stacks up against the other ABC TV shows.
Will ABC cancel or renew Speechless for season four? The ratings have really dropped with the move to Friday nights. That could easily spell cancellation for this sitcom but I’m sure ABC would like more episodes for a syndication package (ABC Studios produces the show with 20th Century Fox Television). They could go either way with this show so I’ll keep an eye on the ratings and will update this page with new developments. Subscribe for free updates on any Speechless cancellation and renewal news.
