A fresh take on a seemingly perfect Catholic family whose lives take an unexpected turn when surprising truths are revealed. Instead of ruining their family, the honesty triggers a new, messier chapter where everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real.
ABC has extended the sophomore season of The Real O'Neals by three episodes. The top up takes its episode count up to 16, which falls short of what would typically amount to a full season for a fall series.
The show premiered earlier this year as a mid-season entry, where it garnered favorable reviews and respectable ratings over the spring months. Its solid performance prompted a quick renewal and a move to the network's fall lineup, though its numbers are down so far through the first four episodes of Season 2.
