Following tonight’s finale on ABC, what are the chances that a Kevin (Probably) Saves the World season 2 renewal happens?
We should start things off here by saying this: On the surface, there is a little bit of hope that we could see something like this happen. Most of the viewers who have stuck with the show have enjoyed it, and ABC has shown a tendency as of late to give low-rated shows another chance. Look at Agents of SHIELD and Once Upon a Time coming back this current season after struggling in the 2016-17 season. They aired on Friday nights after the fact, but ultimately a renewal is still a renewal and we know that fans would celebrate it regardless of when a second season airs.
Unfortunately, there is also a reason to be very much concerned over the future of the series, as well. After all, most shows not attached to major franchises like Once Upon a Time / Agents of SHIELD have a hard time sticking around, and this is a show that only averaged a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic and under 3 million viewers for the entirety of the first season. For one reason or another, ABC has struggled mightily over the years, really ever since canceling Body of Proof, finding a series that can really perform well in this timeslot. Agents of SHIELD did okay, but it mostly stuck around by virtue of DVR ratings and a streaming deal than its live+same-day numbers.
As of right now, we’re probably more pessimistic than optimistic on the future of Kevin (Probably) Saves the World — but that doesn’t mean that there is no hope at all for the series’ future. If you do love the show, the best thing that you can do in order to keep it on the air is to keep the conversation alive both now and in the weeks ahead — don’t let anyone forget about the show and try to expand its base. Encourage some people who love binge-watching to go check out the first season as a whole.
We should know the fate of Kevin (Probably) Saves the World come May sweeps, when ABC figures out the fate of all of the shows in the lineup.
