There’s no probably about it. Kevin (Probably) Saves The World is already cancelled at ABC, but showrunner Michele Fazekas is holding out hope for a last-minute intervention, per TVLine:
I know they love [Jason Ritter]. I know [ABC President] Channing [Dungey] has said they love, creatively, where the show is. So that’s all we know. You have to operate under the assumption, “We’ll get a second season. Let’s set ourselves up for a good second season.” … There are so many other factors: It’s how their pilots come in, how the rest of their season goes, and what their schedule is going to look like. So there’s a million different things that go into their decision making, and because they’re all out of our control, it’s like I can’t even bother spending a lot of energy on it, because I can’t do anything about it.
On whether Season 2 would have delved further into Yvette ‘s character:
Absolutely. There is endless opportunity to explore more about her. Kevin is on a need-to-know basis. And the interesting thing about having Amy in the fold is: Amy is not necessarily going to take whatever Yvette’s answer is as the answer. She’s going to demand a lot more. And then even with Dave, Will Sasso’s character, they assume that Dave is dead. I don’t know that dead always means dead. That’s the great thing about a show like this, where you can make your [own] rules. … [But] I never want see where they’re from, because that will never be that interesting. I always feel like, in some ways, it’s more interesting to leave that to the viewer.
How do you feel about the cancellation of Kevin (Probably)? Did the show deserve a second season?
