“Yeah, I know your type: bored housepet, restless. You seemed pretty disappointed when you saw me the other night. Who were you hoping to see?”
Did you know the show was early titled The Therapy Dog (because of Honey), although the creator changed it into HouseBroken due to the theme of the show? The wonderful sitcom, HouseBroken delivers some great life lessons with its animated anthropomorphic animals. It’s like they are taking examples from dysfunctional human families to solve their personal lives ever since we met Honey, Elsa, Chief, Nathan, Kevin, Shel, Diablo, Max, and others.
The fans have loved the show so much that adults find a lot of similarities with the animated animals. Now the adoration has been at such a level that fans are desperately inquiries about HouseBroken Season 3 renewal status. It’s no wonder fandom is craving answers while the second season has just aired its finale.

Is HouseBroken Season 3 renewed or canceled?
Before we start digging further to satisfy fans with their curiosity, let’s take a moment to appreciate the crew who made the series possible. All thanks to Gabrielle Allan, Jennifer Crittenden, and Clea DuVall for creating the show. Moreover, we shouldn’t forget to thank the voice artists for giving life to our favorite characters. Now let’s get back to the main issue and find the answer.
Unfortunately, Fox hasn’t revealed the cure for fans’ curiosity. In simple words, HouseBroken Season 3 hasn’t been renewed by Fox. It opens the possibility that the upcoming season might not make it. Before we start talking about the possibilities of what can or cannot happen. Have you seen the second season’s rating?
The second season averages a 0.13 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 503,000 viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 51% in the demo and down by 45% in viewership in the live+same day ratings. While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. HouseBroken Season 3 can be delayed due to other economic factors, which mostly involve WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes going on.
Hopefully, you all are aware of the ongoing strikes which have delayed the production houses’ work. The Writers’ Strike i.e., WGA, began in May 2023, while actors joined their hand in July 2023. Indeed, they shouldn’t impact animated series, although writers and actors both are required. It might be an animated sitcom, but it is still a scripted show. Since the second season aired its finale on August 6, 2023, we should also give a time limit to Fox for renewing the show.
As much as strikes can affect the third Season decision, so does the ratings. Currently, the series approval rating is 50%, while the average rating is 4.5/10. Maybe the show hasn’t been able to attract its targeted audience. However, the show’s reviews are still generally favorable. Another reason in favor of HouseBroken Season 3 renewal could be its well-known voice cast, which includes:
- Lisa Kudrow, popularly known as Phoebe in F.R.I.E.N.D.S, is the voice artist of Honey.
- Clea DuVall, known as Sylvia in The Handmaiden Tale, is the voice artist of Elsa.
- Orville Willis Forte IV is known for his work in Saturday Night Live, The Last Man on Earth, and others. He plays Shel’s voice artist.
- Anthony Russell Hale whose a known voice artist and comedian. His known work is in The Angry Birds Movie, Toy Story, and more. He’s currently playing Diablo’s and Max’s voice artist.

While there are several other talented casts like Sharon Horgan, Nat Faxon, Greta Lee, etc. We do know these ratings will surely improve if given a chance. Until then, let’s wait for the HouseBroken Season 3 renewal update and keep scrolling to get the latest news of other series.
