Will There Be a Season 3 of ‘I’m Sorry’?
The hilarious truTV comedy I’m Sorry has been airing for two seasons on the lesser-known network. Creator and star Andrea Savage frequently shares behind-the-scenes looks at the show while it airs, and this season was no different. So is there a third season works? Here’s what we know.
Season 2 of I’m Sorry just ended
The 10-episode second season aired its finale episode, “New York vs. LA,” on Wed. March 13, 2019. The season continued the tradition of the first, showing the personal life of Andrea Warren, a comedy writer living in Los Angeles. As might be expected, the series draws from Savage’s own life, as well as that of her fellow writers, showcasing what it’s like to balance being a parent with a professional life that is often in juxtaposition.
Savage answered questions on Twitter
Savage has always been very open with her audience, and for the I’m Sorry Season 2 finale, she intended to do a Facebook Live Q&A. However, an outage of the social networking site made this difficult, so she took to Twitter to answer some fan questions.
Among other things, the writer talked about the many hats she juggles on set, what it’s like to work with the actress who plays her daughter, and the unexpected way she stays in shape. She even revealed that the long-running joke in which her on-screen mother (played by Kathy Baker) feeds her husband Leon in bed is based on her real-life mom and her husband (also named Leon).
Has I’m Sorry been renewed for Season 3?
Sadly, there’s no word yet as to whether Season 3 is a go at truTV. Savage didn’t really answer any questions about the future of the show. She did reply to a follower who wrote, “Did anybody else start reading @andreasavage tweet and think she was going to say the show got cancelled and then got a little [sic] nauseas?” by saying “No!! Sorry!!,” indicating that there’s no official word on I’m Sorry’s future.
The spring is a popular time for TV renewals
Many TV shows get renewed in the springtime, typically between the months of March and May. This goes back to when everything was on a basic network, which followed the typical school season (shows begin in the fall and end in the spring, taking summers off). Obviously, this is no longer exclusively the case, especially since streaming has become so big, but many shows are still renewed during this time, or around the time they complete the airing of the season in question.
Here’s why we may not know right away
Sadly, the fate of I’m Sorry could hang in the balance for a while. The series was renewed for a second season midway through the first season’s run in Summer 2017. However, the second season didn’t arrive for nearly a year and a half. Depending on what truTV has on the docket right now, this could mean a delay in renewal, or, at the very least, in choosing an airdate for Season 3.
Fortunately, Savage recently noted that when I’m Sorry Season 1 came to Netflix in Fall 2018, “it really changed everything” for them, in a good way. She also said that Season 2 will premiere on Netflix shortly, which, if it does well there, may lead to a push for renewal. We can only hope.
