The Not Dead Yet Season 1 finale has aired, and now all eyes are on the future of the show. Is Season 2 happening on ABC?

It’s that time of year when TV shows come to an end for the season. Yes, there are some summer shows to air, but the main TV season is coming to an end. ABC is ending a lot of shows early this year, with most finales airing in the first week of May. That includes the Not Dead Yet Season 1 finale.

It means all eyes are on the future of the shows. ABC has made some decisions about its shows but not all of them. What about this new comedy series?

Is Not Dead Yet Season 2 happening?

As of writing this, Not Dead Yet is not canceled or renewed for Season 2. ABC has not made a decision, which is pretty normal for a freshman series. Especially a midseason freshman series.

Some decisions aren’t announced until the May Upfronts. This is when ABC announces the pilots that have been picked up to series and some shows will need to be canceled to make way. ABC will want to compare the pilots to the shows currently on the air to see if the linear ratings could be stronger for the newer shows instead of the current ones.

The WGA writer strike could make things a little harder. Negotiations can’t happen. However, there is some hope that the writers will already be contracted for a set amount of years, which will help make renewals a little harder. Plus, writers’ rooms can change between seasons as we’ve seen for shows in the past, so the strike shouldn’t affect current shows. It will just prevent new shows from being pitched, which could delay pilot season.
