What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the ABC television network, Speechless follows Maya DiMeo (Minnie Driver) and her family. A no-nonsense mom, Maya will do anything for her loved ones. She’s always fighting against injustices — both real and imagined. She and husband Jimmy (John Ross Bowie) are parents to brainy Ray (Mason Cook), athletic Dylan (Kyla Kennedy), and teenager JJ (Micah Fowler), who has cerebral palsy. Moving to an upscale school district, Maya needs to find the right person to give JJ his “voice” and finds that the school’s groundskeeper, Kenneth (Cedric Yarbrough), is the man for the job.
Season One Ratings
Speechless has performed well in its first season on ABC and the network gave it a full season order. Back in December, the freshman sitcom received an order for an additional episode. As long as it maintains its ratings, fans shouldn’t worry about it being cancelled. Unless the numbers drop significantly, I expect ABC will renew Speechless for season two. A handful of The Alphabet Network’s scripted dramas seem more likely to end up in my craw.
5/12 update: ABC has renewed Speechless for a second season. Details here.
