Will ‘Council of Dads’ Season 2 return? Here's what Perry’s kids think of their mom’s relationship with her lover
While fans of the show are waiting to see the lovely bond between a chosen family, to their disappointment, the show was canceled in July after its Season 1 finale
Emotional family drama shows have always touched us with their relatable storylines and striking familiarities to our lives. ‘Council of Dads’ by NBC network was one such heartwarming family drama inspired by best-selling author Bruce Feiler's book by the same name. Revolving around a group of friends brought together by a married couple Robin and Scott Perry, the show maps the worries of Scott for his five children as he suffers from cancer. When he dies, his family and kids are taken care of by his best friend Anthony, his A.A. sponsor Larry, and Robin's med school best friend Oliver who act as a team for their upbringing.
While fans of the show are waiting to see the lovely bond between a chosen family, to their disappointment, the show was canceled in July after its season 1 finale. This was due to low ratings of the show after which fans have been eagerly waiting to see if the show can pull off a season 2 and will return?
If picked for another season, the show will have Sarah Wayne Callies as Dr. Robin Perry, Clive Standen as Anthony Lavelle, J. August Richards as Dr. Oliver Post, Michele Weaver as Luly Perry, Emjay Anthony as Theo Perry and Thalia Tran as Charlotte Perry amongst others.
Where we left off
In the last episode of the show Dr. Oliver Post, who is a gay married doctor had his husband Peter opposed to their adopting a second child. The apprehensions were because the baby could carry a degenerative disease, GSS.
However, hinting at a happy ending, Peter has a change of heart and brings his daughter Tess to meet her newborn baby brother, Hampton. It is also revealed that the baby does not carry any disease.
On the other front, we saw Anthony Lavelle, Scott's best friend, and one of Perry's children -- Luly's -- biological dad, rescuing the widowed Robin and her son Theo from their home during a storm.
The storm devastates Scott's beloved Crab Shack and Larry Mills after which an agonizing Larry heads for a bar for a drink. Moreover, in a ray of hope, Robin found love again after her policeman boyfriend Sam finally confesses that he loves her.
What we'd like to see
There is a lot to unravel if season 2 is hitting. One of the key revelations would be if Perry’s kids will approve of their mom's newfound love. How will they react to their new dad if he is acting to be one? Further will Robin marry Sam and will Larry take that vodka drink in the bar after years of sobriety are also something we’d want to know.
When is it returning
Most media reports suggest that since NBC has officially canceled the series, there won’t be a second season. However, there is always a glimmer of hope that the show might return.HITC reports that if ‘Council of Dads’ is renewed by a different broadcaster, then season 2 is expected to be released in early-2021.
