Renewed Or Cancelled?

The Girls on the Bus is the latest political drama, bringing together comedy and drama along with a dollop of social commentary for good measure. So, after watching this show, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:

What is The Girls on the Bus about?

The Girls on the Bus is HBO’s latest political drama starring Melissa Benoist and Carla Gugino. The show chronicles 4 female journalists who follow every move of a parade of flawed presidential candidates, while finding friendship, love, and scandal along the way.

It is interesting to note the creators of The Girls on the Bus, Amy Chozick and Julie Plec, bring the best of both worlds. While the former has written the literary source for the show and has been with the NY Times for a significant time, Plec has vast experience in developing shows from the grassroots levels. The women are a dynamic pairing and deliver an enticing narrative. 

Has The Girls on the Bus been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, The Girls on the Bus has not been renewed for season 2.

Generally HBO would gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate.

With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly. Other times, it can take months before a decision over a show’s future is made.

So far, The Girls on the Bus has had a pretty lukewarm reaction from critics and audiences alike, with some really enjoying the drama and others outright disliking this one.

Given the way this show is set up as a mini-series, we’re predicting that this will not be renewed for a second season. The series does have plenty of potential but we also know that a lot of studios are tightening their purses this year, given the knock-on effect of the recent strikes. 

Still, we’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!

What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point as HBO haven’t officially renewed this one. Should it be renewed, we’d imagine that the story will pick up past the source material and potentially following another presidential campaign.

We’ll be sure to update this page if there are any changes on this front.
