Freeform Cancels Everything's Gonna Be Okay After Two Seasons

Freeform Cancels Everything's Gonna Be Okay After Two Seasons


Looks like any hope for a third season of the queer-inclusive comedy series is now, officially, squashed.

It's the end of the road for the Everything's Gonna Be Okay.

According to a report from Deadline, the LGBTQ-inclusive comedy series, which originally premiered on Freeform in 2020 and concluded its second season in May of this year, will not be returning to the cable network for a third season.

Telling the story of a gay, autistic, Australian entomologist in his twenties who finds himself acting as the legal guardian of his sisters in Los Angeles after the death of their father, Everything's Gonna Be Okay was created by gay comedian and Please Like Me mastermind Josh Thomas, and was notable for its representation of queer people (there were gay and asexual characters throughout the show) and autistic individuals.

Thomas took to social media on Tuesday to address the news of the end of the series.

"We've decided Season 2 of Everything's Gonna Be Okay will be its last," Thomas wrote in his statement.

"I want to send an extra super special thanks to our cast, writer, and crew who are talented, kind, and passionate," he continued. "We made the second season at the peak of the pandemic and everyone did such a beautiful job of keeping each other safe and happy and sometimes dancing," he wrote. "If any of these people ask you for a job, I highly recommend you say yes."

Underlining that there are no hard feelings for Freeform, he went on to write that the cable network was "a dream to work with" and that they were "so cool and open and sincerely progressive."

"I'm so grateful we got a platform to make this show," he said. "I love them and they are obsessed with me, I hope we get another chance to work together."

While it's sad that yet another LGBTQ+ series was taken off the air too soon, Thomas said in a follow-up tweet that he is working on a brand new project and that he will be announcing it very soon, so it probably won't be too long until we're blessed with more new queer content!

"I'm working on a project at the moment (to be announced) and have a bunch of shows I'm getting my hustle on and will be out pitching," Thomas said. "I'm pretty jazzed about them but will miss this show for sure. Thank you."

The first two seasons of Everything's Gonna Be Okay are currently streaming on Hulu.
