As we start to look beyond tonight’s finale, we have one question on our mind: Will an American Woman season 2 happen over at the Paramount Network?
At the moment, we’d say that the odds for the series’ eventual return are very much up in the air, mostly because the ratings have never been through the roof for the show. The premiere episode managed to draw in more than 500,000 viewers and a 0.2 rating, but the season as a whole is averaging around 370,000 and a 0.1 rating. It had a pretty big drop-off and its ratings are a far cry from one of the network’s recent hits in Yellowstone, which has routinely brought in more than 2 million viewers.
The good news for this show is mostly this: We don’t think that you can really compare what American Woman is doing to other shows on the network since Paramount Network is still so new. They don’t have all that much of a consistent road map as to what they’re doing just yet and may not have a consistent one for a rather long time still. This is probably going to be one of those things that takes a little bit of time for them to figure out, and it does make some sense for them to just keep as much programming on the air as they possibly can.
Yet, there is also one counterpoint to this idea that is fairly clear: Is there a reason financially to keep the series on the air? We’re not privy to budgetary information from the outside, but we feel like that will play a role, regardless of if the network wants to keep the series around creatively.
As for when we could find out about an American Woman season 2, we have to imagine that it will happen over the coming weeks / months. They won’t want to wait too long to finalize anything.
