Plot Synopsis

Inspired by the life of writer and executive producer Michael Colton, HOME ECONOMICS is a half-hour comedy series that takes a look at the heartwarming yet super uncomfortable and sometimes frustrating relationship among three adult siblings: one in the 1% (youngest sibling Connor, who runs his own private equity firm); one middle-class (middle sibling Tom, who is a struggling author); and one barely holding on (oldest sibling Sarah, who is a child therapist).

The sophomore season of HOME ECONOMICS premiered on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at 9:30pm ET/PT on ABC. In the season opener, "49ers Foam Finger, $7," Connor invites the Hayworth clan to a San Francisco 49ers game as he tries to close his latest business deal. Desperately trying to prove that he knows the game, Tom gets a once-in-a-lifetime chance to showcase his football skills in front of the entire crowd of 49ers Faithful at Levi's Stadium. Meanwhile, Denise tries to get Sarah to come to terms with Shamiah's new interest in cheerleading. After a one-month break, HOME ECONOMICS returned with new episodes on Wednesday, January 5, 2022 at 9:30pm ET/PT on ABC. In the winter premiere, "Men's Water-Resistant Watch, $289," Tom and Marina must make a difficult choice after they uncover a bombshell revelation about Sofia Salazar. Meanwhile, Connor and JoJo's secret relationship is complicated by Denise and Sarah's matchmaking efforts. Guest stars: Tetona Jackson as JoJo and Roselyn Sanchez as Sofia Salazar.
On Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at 9:30pm ET/PT, ABC premiered "Ticket to Space, $1 Million," the Season 2 finale of HOME ECONOMICS. Tom attempts to keep Connor grounded after he announces his plans to go to space then falls into a rough patch himself after learning some bad news. Meanwhile, Marina gets stuck while trying to transform their attic into a writing space for Tom. Written by Michael Colton and John Aboud, and directed by Dean Holland.

Five days earlier -- on Friday, May 13 -- ABC announced that HOME ECONOMICS was renewed for a third season.
