Why Do We Think B-Positive Will be Renewed?
Viewers are engaged. Viewership has remained very consistent from episode to episode at about 4.7 to 5.0 million viewers per episode. This is a clear signal that viewers are staying engaged with the season, in particular since most series have seen wild up and downs due to scheduling challenges from the covid situation.
Producer Chuck Lorre has great shows under his belt. Chuck Lorre has a stellar reputation. He has produced shows like Young Sheldon, The Big Bang Theory, Mike & Molly, and more. Considering his past work, “B Positive” will likely be a hit show and renewed for season 2.
The show is based on true events. “B Positive” also has something special about it. It is based on the true story of co-creator Marco Pennette and his real-life kidney transplant. He had a renal failure in 2013 and immediately needed a kidney transplant. That’s when a childhood friend showed up and made it happen. Seven years later, he decided to share his lived experience in a way that delightfully captures hearts. Usually, when the TV shows are based on true events, viewers take much more interest in them keeping their ratings high. This little tidbit might contribute to the show getting a season 2.
