Will The Blended Bunch be renewed or canceled for Season 2? The fate of the TLC series has been up in the air since the Season 1 Finale aired. But, thanks to our connections with a few of the cast members, we have the scoop. So, what has TLC decided to do with this series? Keep reading, we’ll explain.
The Blended Bunch: Meet The Shemwells
In March of 2021, TLC introduced a new series called The Blended Bunch. The series featured a widow and a widower named Erica and Spencer. Here’s the official synopsis of what the series is about:
In a small town in Utah lives a widow and widower who, combined with their 11 children, have formed the modern-day Brady Bunch; Spencer and Erica Shemwell have found love after loss, but blending a family this big can come with some major challenges.”
Unfortunately, the series was NOT well-received. TLC viewers thought it was irresponsible for Erica and Spencer to force their children to blend together in such a big family. Google viewers reveal just slightly more than those who watched the series admitted to liking it. Reviews on IMDb showed roughly the same results.
For those who enjoyed watching The Blending Bunch, the bad reviewers didn’t bode well for a renewal. Would TLC gamble with renewing the series for Season 2 when it wasn’t well-received?
Canceled Or Renewed? The Fate Of The Series Revealed
Mark Letham (Tony’s dad) sat down with a member of our staff recently. He shared with us exclusively that the fate of The Blended Bunch regarding Season 2 finally “came down” from the higher-ups. So, did TLC cancel or renew the series for Season 2?
According to Mr. Letham TLC has decided to pull the plug on The Blended Bunch. So, the series HAS been canceled and WILL NOT return for Season 2.
While Mark definitely doesn’t speak for the entire family he noted “life goes on” in response to learning the show would not return. He also shared that he had no idea he had a son and how happy he was that Erica never gave up on looking for him. ” They are a strong family and I am blessed to be Tony’s biological father. This family my family is all about love.”
Quinn Kendall Previously Shared His Thoughts With Us
A separate member of our staff caught up with Quinn Kendall (Erica’s brother) a few months ago, we asked if Quinn knew anything about Season 2. We also asked if he thought the family even wanted a Season 2. Quinn told us he had no idea if the series would get renewed or canceled. He, however, also wasn’t sure if he was interested in being in any additional seasons.
As fans recall, The Blended Bunch painted Quinn Kendall out as a bit of “the bad guy.” Quinn also told us his parents weren’t too happy with the show either.
My parents aren’t happy with how they were thrown under the bus… AND I agree with them. It was pure wrong.”
He added: “Erica and Spencer seem just fine. I haven’t decided if I will participate. If they need me I will.”
We have reached out to Quinn Kendall to see if he has any thoughts on the series getting canceled, but we haven’t heard back yet.
