Fans of 'The Courtship' Are Desperate for a Season 2 — Will It Happen?
'The Courtship' is a new reality dating show, and because of its unique premise, many people already want to know if there will be a Season 2.
The Bachelor might have ABC covered in terms of reality dating, but NBC is close behind with The Courtship. It's a reality show filmed in a sprawling England castle, and the idea is that the lead, Nicole Remy, will date a ton of potential suitors to find the one who is right for her. There are carriage rides, gowns, corsets, and Bridgerton-esque balls. Sound like everything you could ever ask for in a show? Us too.
Although the show was a new concept, and it's strikingly different from other reality dating shows like Netflix's Too Hot to Handle or ABC's The Bachelor, The Courtship is genuinely fun to watch due to the authenticity of the lead and the interesting assortment of suitors.
And don't get it twisted — even though the series is inspired by a simpler time, the romance is just as complicated and, dare we say, dramatic. So, can fans look forward to a Season 2?
Will there be a Season 2 of 'The Courtship'?
As of now, The Courtship has not been renewed for a second season. As Distractify reported previously, NBC pulled Season 1 of The Courtship from its lineup due to low initial viewership ratings. How has the Bridgerton-esque series been doing ratings-wise since the show was moved to the USA Network?
According to TV Series Finale, the ratings for The Courtship overall have been consistently inconsistent. For example, there was an 86 percent drop in viewership from the second to the third episode.
However, there was a 75 percent increase in viewership for the fourth episode. The ratings continue to increase and decrease every episode or so. Per the same report, The Courtship overall averaged .248 million viewers for the first season.
The Season 1 finale airs on May 25, 2022, and there's no word on Season 2 yet.
'The Courtship' is actually perfect for 'Bachelor' fans.
Bachelor Nation fans, if you're looking for a show to fill the void until Gabby and Rachel's Bachelorette season premieres, giveThe Courtship a chance! The show may have struggled with viewership (the 11 p.m. timeslot on USA Network certainly doesn't help) but Nicole Rémy is a leading lady worth rooting for.
How can you watch 'The Courtship'?
The Courtship Season 1 finale airs on May 25, 2022, on the USA Network at 11:30 p.m. EST. You can catch up on the whole season if you have a Peacock subscription. All 11 episodes of The Courtship Season 1 are currently available to stream on the platform, and the finale will be available the day after the episode airs live on the USA Network.
Will Miss Rémy choose Mr. Bochicchio, Mr. Judge, or Mr. Cones? We do hope the show returns for a second season. Even if you aren't a sucker for reality TV like so many of us (though some of us aren't always eager to admit to that), you can come for the Bridgerton and Pride & Prejudice vibes and stick around for the reality TV drama.
Watch The Courtship Season 1 finale on May 25 at 11:30 p.m. EST on the USA Network.
