Ordinary Joe is a television drama series that aired on NBC from September 20, 2021, to January 24, 2022. Garrett Lerner and Russel Friend co-created and co-executive produced the series, which is produced by 20th Television and Universal Television.
The title character is played by James Wolk. After one season, the show was canceled in March 2022.
Season 2 of Ordinary Joe Has Been Confirmed by NBC??
We’d assumed the worst at this point, as much as we didn’t want it to. There will be no Season 2 of Ordinary Joe on NBC.
Ordinary Joe aired its final episode in January 2022. We’d accepted our fate when we didn’t hear anything regarding the renewal right away. NBC, on the other hand, had to confirm the news, which they recently did with the James Wolk series.
Ordinary Joe has been canceled after one season, according to TVLine. There will be no Season 2, leaving us with all of the unanswered mysteries about the three Joes.
What Caused the Cancellation of Ordinary Joe?
The series’ concept was very entertaining. With Wolk’s character, Joe, choosing three possible pathways on one fateful date, it brought us a Sliding Doors-style series.
In one, he chose to pursue his dream of becoming a rock star by following his passion for music. He selected family in the second and pursued a career as a police officer. He chose to love and followed Jenny in the third, learning he would be a young father and deciding to become a nurse to support his family.
Fans that tuned in appreciated seeing how the characters entered and exited his life via the three paths. Unfortunately, it did not receive enough viewers to warrant a second season.
In the Live+7 ratings, the series averaged merely 3.3 million viewers and a 0.5 demo rating. In both criteria, it came in last among all NBC series. The cancellation was expected in light of this. The networks require high live ratings. If they don’t, they’ll require strong delayed numbers from streaming sites, but NBC still values live ratings.

What’s the Story Behind This Tv Show?
James Wolk, Natalie Martinez, Elizabeth Lail, Charlie Barnett, David Warshofsky, and Teddy Sears appear in the NBC television show Ordinary Joe, which also has Adam Rodriguez, Jack Coleman, Christine Adams, Joe Carroll, Rushi Kota, Jason Burkey, and Gabrielle Byndloss in recurring roles.
The show follows young Joe Kimbreau (Wolk) as he attends his Syracuse University graduation and takes a life-changing decision.
Joe and the individuals around him have various occupations, relationships, and family lives in the three parallel stories that split from that night. Each of the three stories follows Joe ten years after graduation, as he follows in his father’s footsteps as a police officer, as a music star, and as a nurse after marrying his love.
Characters and Cast
- Joe Kimbreau, played by James Wolk, is a man whose one fateful decision on the day of his college graduation has profound consequences for who he becomes ten years later: a famous musician married to Amy, a mild-mannered nurse married to Jenny with whom Joe shares a son, Christopher, or a heroic police officer reunited with Amy after ten years.
- Natalie Martinez as Amy Kindelán, whom Joe meets on the day of his graduation: in the “Musician Joe” timeline, she is married to Joe and about to embark on a political career; in the “Nurse Joe” timeline, she is married to Eric; and in the “Officer Joe” timeline, she is working for Congressman Diaz when Joe reappears after ten years.
- Jenny Banks, Joe’s college sweetheart: in the “Musician Joe” timeline, she is a high-powered attorney who reveals to Joe that she put their son up for adoption ten years before; in the “Nurse Joe” timeline, she is a paralegal who is married to Joe but initially estranged from him, and together they are raising their son Christopher; and in the “Officer Joe” timeline, she is an assistant district attorney who is keeping the existence of her son with Joe hidden
- In the “Musician Joe” timeline, he is unmarried and managing Joe; in the “Nurse Joe” timeline, he is a chef and married to Amy; and in the “Officer Joe” timeline, he manages a pizza shop and is married to Mallory.
Ratings for Season One
Ordinary Joe had a 0.32 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.28 million viewers in the live+same day ratings during its first season (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these figures do not account for additional delayed or streamed viewing, they are a good estimate of how well a show is doing, especially when compared to other shows on the same channel.
Other economic considerations may influence a show’s destiny, although in general, higher-rated programs are renewed while lower-rated shows are canceled. See how Ordinary Joe compares to other NBC television series.
