Fans don’t have to worry whether HBO’s Vice Principals TV show will be cancelled or renewed for season three, but only because star Danny McBride — who created the comedy with Jody Hill — has long said it was conceived as a two season TV series. So, why are we still tracking the ratings? Well, it’s fun, but also, the ratings inform the threshold for other HBO TV show cancellations and renewals, so stay tuned.
A scripted sitcom, Vice Principals stars McBride as Neal Gamby and Walton Goggins as Lee Russell. The HBO cast also includes Kimberly Hebert Gregory, Georgia King, Busy Philipps, Shea Whigham, and Sheaun McKinney. Both Gamby and Russell want to be the next North Jackson High School Principal. Although they hate one another, they team up to oust Dr. Belinda Brown (Hebert Gregory). .

What do you think? Do you like the Vice Principals TV series? Is it ending at the right time, or do you wish it would be renewed for season three on HBO?
Easily one of the most underrated shows in the last ten years. It’s a damn shame Walter Goggins did not receive an Emmy win. Also, Danny McBride & Hebert Gregory received an Emmy nomination. Really incredible acting that was mined from solid writing. The show could’ve easily gone down an outlandish path of ridiculousness, but the acting kept the show very grounded. A show like this or It’s Always Sunny prove just how out of touch Emmy voters are either uninformed or how easyily the voters are paid off by other networks.
I absolutely LOVE Vice Principals. I watch no mainstream TV at all. I watch many HBO shows and love them. This is the funniest show ever and I laugh outloud and cannot wait until the next episode. I wish it would have a season 3. I think the content is there for Danny McBride to continue…please!!! Please surprise your fans!!! I have went back and watched season 1 all over again. I am praying no one gets killed off on the next two episodes so there can be a season 3. PLEASE!!!
