Carol's Second Act

A woman embarks on a unique second act after raising her children, getting divorced, and retiring from teaching: pursuing her dream of becoming a doctor. At age 50, Carol is a medical intern and must sink or swim with peers who are half her age. It’s her enthusiasm, perspective and yes, even her age, that may be exactly what will make her second act a great success.

CBS Cancels 'Carol's Second Act'

Carol's Second Act will not be getting, well, a second act. The sad news comes after CBS released its schedule for the 2020-2021 season and the freshman comedy was absent from the lineup. The show's final episode aired on March 12.
The series premiered as part of the network's fall lineup last September, and got off to a decent start. It was even picked up for a full season, albeit a shortened one, after its first four weeks on the air. And while its ratings remained more or less consistent throughout its run, they were likely not high enough to justify bringing it back for Season 2.
Carol's Second Act stars Patricia Heaton as Carol Kenney, who has had a successful teaching career, raised her children, and been through a divorce. Now at age 50 she is embarking on a unique second act and pursuing her dream of becoming a doctor.
