Bless This Mess follows newlyweds Rio and Mike as they make the decision to move from big city New York to rural Nebraska. After dropping everything (including their jobs and overbearing mother-in-law) to make the move from skyscrapers to farmhouses, they soon realize that the simpler life isn't as easy as they planned. Rio and Mike must now learn how to weather the storm as they are faced with unexpected challenges in their new life as farmers.
ABC has cancelled Bless This Mess after two seasons. The network announced its pickups for 2020-2021 today, and the comedy, which aired its now-series finale earlier this month, did not make the cut.
Co-created by Lake Bell, the half-hour series stars Bell and Dax Shepard as newlywed New Yorkers Rio and Mike, who have left the big city behind and moved to rural Nebraska. After saying good-bye to family, friends, and their jobs, they soon realize that living a simpler life takes more work than they originally thought. The couple is forced to adapt to their new surroundings while dealing with unexpected challenges in their new life as farmers.
