Is the co-creator of ‘Home Economics’ hopeful for a new network home after ABC cancellation?

The cancellation of the comedy series “Home Economics” after three seasons has left fans disappointed. However, there is still hope among the creators that the show may find a new home on another network.

Mike Colton, one of the show’s creators, took to Instagram to express his gratitude to everyone involved in the series. In his post, he mentioned that creating 42 episodes of “Home Economics” has been the highlight of his career. He also expressed his hope that the Hayworths, the show’s main family, will return in some form, even if it’s just to continue embarrassing his real-life family. Colton thanked the fans who have shown their love and support for the show.

“Home Economics,” which stars Topher Grace and is created by Michael Colton and John Aboud, aired on ABC from 2021 to 2023. Despite being on the bubble for renewal, there was a possibility of the show coming back after ABC extended the cast options deadline. The series is produced by Lionsgate and ABC Signature.

The show is inspired by Colton’s own experiences and revolves around the complicated yet heartwarming relationships between three siblings in different socio-economic situations. One sibling is ultra-rich, another is middle-class, and the third is struggling to make ends meet. The ensemble cast includes Caitlin McGee, Jimmy Tatro, Karla Souza, Sasheer Zamata, Shiloh Bearman, Jordyn Curet, Chloe Jo Rountree, and JeCobi Swain.

In addition to Colton and Aboud, the executive producers of the show are Topher Grace, Eric and Kim Tannenbaum of The Tannenbaum Company, Jason Wang, Tucker Cawley, Julieanne Smolinski, and Dean Holland, who also directed the pilot and multiple episodes of the series.

Although the future of “Home Economics” on ABC may be uncertain, the creators and fans remain hopeful that the show will find a new network home. Until then, fans can cherish the 42 episodes that have already been released and continue to show their support for the series.
