ABC will likely announce season 5 for American Housewife
The news has yet to be officially announced by ABC, but American Housewife could be laughing all the way to Season 5. ABC has ordered six more episodes of the comedy, extending its current fourth season to a full-season of 22 episodes.
The extension likely has far-reaching implications, as this full-season pickup is seen as an extremely positive indicator for Season 5 renewal. However, as of today, ABC completed airing current season on 5/13/20; has yet to be renewed for season 5.
ABC has additionally handed positive renewal vibes to Bless This Mess, which has also been given a full-season pickup.
