What’s happening with Duncan? As the third season ended on June 26, 2022, the viewers of the series have many questions about the potential renewal of the series. It is a fair question to ask about the franchise’s future plans, as many speculated on whether it would be able to continue its storyline for more seasons.
As the show has gained a fairly good reception from the audience and amassed a fan base that tunes in to watch the series. On Rotten Tomatoes, the series has an approval rating of 91% based on 11 reviews, with an average rating of 6.30/10. The website’s critics’ consensus reads, “Amy Poehler lends her buoyant pipes to dual roles in Duncanville, a modest animated comedy that gets a lot of mileage out of its colorful palette and daydream flourishes.”
On Metacritic, it has a weighted average score of 64 out of 100 based on 6 reviews, indicating “generally favorable reviews.” According to IMDb, the series has an overall score of 6.1 out of 10 with 2.1k votes. Unfortunately, we have some bad news for you. After weeks of waiting and investing your time in three seasons, if you were looking forward to the next chapter of Duncanville, the chance to binge-watch Duncanville Season 4 was brief as the original Fox network has canceled the show.
The series is listed among the other TV series which are abruptly canceled by the network. Here is everything we know about Duncanville Season 4’s cancellation.
Will there be a Season 4 of Duncanville?
The Fox network announced in June 2022 that the series was canceled after three seasons. As a result, the series has no chance of being renewed by the network, as many original series have been reported to be canceled by major streaming platforms this year.
Even though the series has gained a fair amount of fans who were eager to see more seasons, sadly, Duncanville has fallen into a similar list of canceled series even if the show had the potential to get better after improving the screenplay and the character arcs and a stronger screenplay.
Why did Fox cancel Duncanville Season 4?
The network has decided to cancel the show, and the decision comes as Fox gears up to introduce new animated series, including Dan Harmon’s Krapopolis and Jon Hamm’s Grimsburg.
According to Deadline, “Fox has canceled the series, which comes from Amy Poehler, The Simpsons veteran Mike Scully, and former Simpsons writer-producer Julie Scully, after three seasons. The series is averaging 0.2 in Live+7 numbers with 641,000 viewers and about 1.1M multiplatform viewers per episode. The third season, which premiered in May, recently wrapped up on Fox. However, there are six final episodes the broadcast network does not plan to air that will exclusively stream on Hulu later this year.”

The official Fox website states that Duncanville is centered around a spectacularly average 15-year-old boy, his family, and friends. Like most 15-year-olds, Duncan can see adulthood on the horizon: money, freedom, cars, and girls; but the reality is more like: always being broke, driving with one’s mom sitting shotgun, and babysitting one’s sister. He’s not exceptional, but he has a wild imagination in which he’s never anything less than amazing.
Duncan’s mom, Annie, a parking enforcement officer who dreams of someday being a detective, lives in perpetual fear that her teenage son is one bad decision away from ruining his life and will do anything to stop him. Duncan’s father, Jack, is a classic-rock-obsessed plumber who’s determined to be a better dad than the one he had. Duncan has two sisters: 12-year-old Kimberly and six-year-old Jing. Duncan hangs with his friends Bex, Yangzi, and Wolf. Mia is Duncan’s on-again, off-again crush, and Mr. Mitch is their cool teacher/guidance counselor/occasional school nurse.
What could have been the plot of Duncanville Season 4?
As of July 21, 2022, Duncanville Season 3 has aired all 10 episodes of the series, which concluded on June 26, 2022. The 10th episode, simply titled “Moneyballs,” is directed by Marius Alecse and written by Andrew Lee and is estimated to be viewed by 0.52 million US viewers. The official synopsis of the episode states, “After Duncan gets a job and starts contributing to the household budget, he believes he’s entitled to be the head of the family; Jack wants to impress his dad and prove he has control over his household.”
In the finale episode, the viewers get to see that Jack continues to try to impress Dick while the rest of the Harrises take him out to dinner, while Duncan arranges a house party in secret at home. When they get back home, Jack is cut off from using their credit cards after Dick reprimands him for being lenient toward Duncan. On the advice of his pals, Duncan accepts a position at Ray’s hardware shop and uses his newfound wealth to pay Kimberly and Jing to serve as maids and speak with a British accent, as well as to purchase items for the family.
Duncan undergoes a personality change and begins to treat Jack and Annie harshly, just like Dick, when he sees that Jack is using his new position as an additional means of impressing Dick. Annie contacts Dick to come and break up a fight between Jack and Duncan when they become irate on the roof. He convinces them to admit their feelings for one another, and Dick, at last, acknowledges Jack. The family decides to retain the hole so they can see the stars even when they fall through the ceiling. Jack uses a nail gun to close the door while Dick grumbles while using the restroom.
Unfortunately, due to the cancellation, the fans won’t be able to predict how these characters would have progressed. The story would have continued from this point and expanded to examine the character interactions and subplots if the fourth season had been renewed, which would have encouraged fans to stick with the show for a while.
Following is a list of the series’ main cast members who were anticipated to return in their roles, along with a synopsis of each character:
Amy Poehler as Duncan: An average teen who is average in every way who has a dream world where he is everything. He has a crush on Mia and refers to his best friends for advice and help, Annie, mother to Duncan, Kimberly, and Jing, and Jack’s wife who is a meter maid that strives to be a detective.
Ty Burrell as Jack: The rock-obsessed plumber dad who tries to be a better father than his father had been.
Riki Lindhome as Kimberly: Duncan’s angsty, awkward, Wiccan 12-year-old sister with a midriff shirt who struggles to be popular in middle school but fails and bullies Duncan in return.
Zach Cherry as Wolf: Duncan’s monotonous friend and the object of Kimberly’s affection. He has issues at home and acts aloof and disinterested in things.
Yassir Lester as Yangzi: Duncan’s friend who supports various brands on Twitter and thus gets a lot of free stuff from these brands. He is also a trendsetter. Yangzi is physically based on Lester.
Betsy Sodaro as Bex and Octavia: Duncan’s tomboy friend who is seen as one of the boys. She later rebuffs this and says how could she be a boy when she has bobbles? Bex is physically based on Sodaro, and Octavia is Bex’s grandmother, who is oblivious to her granddaughter and her friends’ shenanigans and occasionally gets pulled into their schemes.
Joy Osmanski as Jing: Duncan and Kimberly are adopted five-year-old Asian little sister who has an open crush on Duncan, though she loses romantic interest in the second season.
Rashida Jones as Mia: Duncan’s friend and secret crush who is very liberal and likes hanging out with Duncan and his friends.
Wiz Khalifa as Mr. Mitch: A relatable, immature but rather likable, teacher who teaches Duncan, Yangzi, Mia, Wolf, and Bex.
