Will the political drama series Too Close To Home return for a third season or is it finished for good? Too Close To Home was created by Tyler Perry (Boo! A Madea Halloween) and follows a woman named Anna, who is forced to leave her White House job after her affair with the President of The United States Thomas Christian is exposed. Anna, played by Danielle Savre (Deep Blue Sea 2) then has to move back to her hometown of Happy, Alabama and deal with her family and their assorted dramas.
While Too Close To Home received somewhat mixed reviews from critics when it debuted in 2016, the ratings for the series increased during its second season. Too Close To Home was also the first original scripted series from TLC and the show was later repeated on Oprah Winfrey's (A Wrinkle In Time) Network. While the show wasn't exactly showered with critical praise or awards it did attract a fanbase for it's over the top storylines and enjoyably soapy tone.
With the second season coming to an end in 2017 is there any hope for Too Close To Home season 3?
TLC Cancelled Too Close To Home After Two Seasons
Despite the ratings for the show actually going up during its second season, TLC opted not to greenlight Too Close To Home season 3. The show was always considered something of an experiment for the network, which primarily focuses on reality television or lifestyle shows such as Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Cake Boss. In that regard, a scripted Tyler Perry drama always felt a little out of place on the network. Despite the improved ratings the reviews for Too Close To Home continued to be mediocre, with TLC quietly pulling the plug on the drama following the second season finale.
Will Too Close To Home Season 3 Ever Happen?
While it's not unheard of for a canceled series to move to a new home, like Brooklyn Nine-Nine's move from Fox to NBC following its cancelation, that doesn't appear to be happening with Too Close To Home. Since the second season ended in 2017 there's been little to no sign of the showrunners attempting to move it to a new platform. While the finale left plenty of cliffhangers, including the First Lady exposing the President's affair to a reporter, given the amount of time that's passed since it aired, it seems highly unlikely Too Close To Home season 3 will happen now.
