Storyline and basic info

A new sitcom, Speechless, was launched by ABC on September 21, 2016. Its freshman season order was extended to a full-length one with 22 episodes following the successful broadcast of the first two episodes. The show is created by Scott Silveri, and executive produced by Silveri, Niki Schwartz-Wright, Christine Gemon, Jake Kasdan and Melvin Mar. Silveri and Gold Productions, The Detective Agency, ABC Studios and 20th Century Fox Television collaborate on the comedy series.

The DiMeo family is at the core of the plot, and matriarch Maya DiMeo (Minnie Driver) is at the core of the DiMeo family. She’s very protective of her loved ones – her husband Jimmy (John Ross Bowie) and their three children – astronomy buff Ray (Mason Cook), athlete Dylan (Kyla Kenedy) and J.J. (Micah Fowler), a special needs teenager, the oldest of the three. As this unique and no-nonsense family moves to a new middle-class neighborhood, both adults and kids have to face new challenges.

Excellent reception and prospects of renewal

Speechless debuted with an impressive 7.38 million viewers, a 2.0 demo rating and a share of 8, and while the ratings slid to 6.43 million, with a 1.8 rating and a share of 6, it is still a strong performer. The series has garnered positive reviews and praise for its sensitive exploration of the significant topic of special needs individuals. The subject matter is gaining the much needed publicity in the realm of television series in the recent times with shows like A&E’s hit Born This Way. Speechless has a 7.4/10 IMDb score, and viewers unanimously praise its stellar cast, multidimensional characters, comedic delivery, hilarious dialogue and the fearless manner in which it tackles difficult issues. ABC has not announced a renewal of Speechless for a second season, but the show is definitely a keeper, so stay tuned for further news.
