We’ve compiled a summary of everything you need to know about the official release date, plot, and cast, which will get you excited for the upcoming installment. Here’s all we know thus far about Home Economics Season 3. 

Is Home Economics renewed for Season 3?

Yes, it’s official that ABC has renewed Home Economics for a third season. The renewal was confirmed by the network and the official announcement was shared on ABC’s Twitter handle, quoting, “Time to get up and dance! The Hayworths are back for Season 3 ” Take a look at the official announcement below:

According to Deadline, Season 2 of Home Economics made its premiere in September with a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demo and 2.17 million followers. The comedy has since dipped slightly in the demo, but rose and remained steady in recent weeks with a 0.3 rating. So, the renewal of the series is not surprising for the network to invest its resources into making another season of the show happen. 

Moreover, some cast members of the series also shared this announcement with their followers on social media platforms, Topher Grace who plays Tom, shared the post on his official Twitter handle and hinted at the series renewal for a third season. Take a look at the post below:

Home Economics Season 3 Potential Release Date

The series renewal was officially announced by ABC on May 14, 2022. Moreover, Season 2 recently aired its finale episode, Ticket to Space, $1 Million, which was released on May 18, 2022. So, asking for an official release date for Home Economics Season 3 seems a little early. 

If we have to guess, looking at the pattern of prior seasons, the upcoming season will most likely premiere sometime around late 2022 to early 2023. Many fans are predicting the range of months which may differ from April to September considering the premiere dates for Season 1 and Season 2.

Moreover, we would like to highlight that at this point in time this is just speculation so the viewers need to wait for some time for the network to officially confirm the release date. The series’ renewal before the end of Season 2 is a good indication, signaling that the following season’s development was already in the works ahead of time.

So, viewers may not have to wait long because the series’ production appears to be pre-planned in a scheduled manner. Hence, we suggest the viewers wait patiently for some time as these updates will be confirmed by the network in the near future as the production of the third season starts filming and faces no major delays. 

Take a look at some fan’s reactions to the renewal
