United We Fall Cancelled at ABC

United We Fall Cancelled ABC

The axe has fallen on United We Fall: ABC has cancelled the family sitcom after one season, our sister site Variety reports.

Will Sasso (Mom, Less Than Perfect) and Christina Vidal Mitchell (Training Day, Code Black) starred as husband and wife Bill and Jo, whose lives are turned upside down when Bill’s mother Sandy, played by SNL and 3rd Rock From the Sun vet Jane Curtin, moves in with them and their two daughters Emily and Lulu. Guillermo Diaz (Scandal) co-starred as Jo’s brother Chuy.

First announced as a part of ABC’s primetime schedule way back in May 2019, United We Fall didn’t premiere until this July, more than a year after it was ordered to series at the Alphabet network. It debuted to 4.2 million total viewers and a 0.6 demo rating, marking broadcast TV’s most-watched summer launch in more than a year. Following an initial dip, it then held pretty steady — averaging 3.4 mil and a 0.5 over eight episodes, outrating such summertime ABC fare as Genetic Detective, Bachelor GOAT and Agents of SHIELD‘s farewell run.
