Will Council of Dads be canceled or renewed for Season 2?

Council of Dads

Eyes are on the future of many TV shows. NBC has a handful left to cancel or renew, and Council of Dads is one of them. Will it get a second season?

As we look at the chances of TV shows being canceled or renewed, our eyes right now are on the freshman drama Council of Dads. NBC hasn’t had too much luck with new shows as of late, but what about the new father-focused drama? Is there a chance that Council of Dads will be renewed for a second season?

NBC will take in a number of factors to make a decision. The live ratings are certainly among the factors, and those that the ratings that we get a clear look at. According to TV Series Finale, the show has pulled in an average of 3.7 million viewers with a 0.68 demo rating. What does this mean?

This is after just one episode

Now granted, the ratings come after just the one episode. NBC has been a little odd with its scheduling, but part of that will be linked to the coronavirus pandemic and changes to the schedule. The show premiered off the back of the This Is Us Season 4 finale, which will have also played a part.

So, right now, it’s hard to say whether this is good enough or not for the future of the show. We need to see what the ratings drop is like for the second episode, which will air on April 30. Then we’ll need to see how the ratings stabilize.

There is some good news to take from it. The first episode puts Council of Dads in eight place out of 20 episodes, which is certainly an excellent start. Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist and Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector didn’t get this type of start. However, Bluff City Law got a better start and quickly lost ratings.

Postponed pilots could save it

NBC has been mixed with renewals of TV shows this season. I thought The Blacklist was going to be canceled, but it was renewed for an eighth season earlier this year. Brooklyn Nine-Nine was also renewed despite falling ratings. However, there’s more support for a show that has been going on for longer than a quickly dropping new series.

The lack of pilots this season could certainly help ensure Council of Dads is renewed. NBC will still want to see how the show performs before making a decision. I don’t think we’re getting a decision until towards the end of May until the second episode performs as well as the pilot.

Council of Dads returns with all-new episodes of April 30 at 10/9c on NBC.
