The Real O'Neals Gets a Second Season From ABC
Matt Shively, Martha Plimpton, Noah Galvin
As the news of cancellations and pickups become fast and furious, we hear that ABC is renewing the comedy The Real O'Neals for a second season.
Debuting this past February, it involved the unraveling of a seemingly perfect Chicago family after the parents (Martha Plimpton, Jay R. Ferguson) announce they're getting a divorce, and their son Kenny (Noah Galvin) revealing that he's gay. The season has explored what Kenny's announcement has done to this once-idyllic family, and how truly crazy they all are.

The show hasn't exactly been a ratings barn-burner for ABC, garnering about 3.5 million viewers per episode, dropping off about 50% from its premiere audience, but it pairs nicely with Fresh Off The Boat on Tuesdays, which seems to be ABC's motivation for bringing it back.
