The Kids Are Alright will sadly be ending after just one season.
Series creator Tim Doyle made the official announcement on Friday afternoon via Twitter. The series was based on his life growing up in an Irish Catholic family in the 1970s. Doyle posted a sweet photo of himself hugging Jack Gore who plays Timmy on the series. He captioned the photo by saying, “‘The Kids Are Alright’ is dead. I just got the call. Goodbye.” Check out his emotional post below.

Throughout the season, the show’s ratings were somewhat inconsistent, however, the show itself was nothing short of brilliant. Each episode contained a perfect balance of hilarious comedy, nostalgia, witty one-liners and of course, tons of heart.
Doyle also narrates the series in voiceover as older Timmy. The Kids Are Alright stars Mary McCormack, Michael Cudlitz, Sam Straley, Caleb Martin Foote, Sawyer Barth, Christopher Paul Richards, Jack Gore, Andy Walken, and Santino Barnard.
The series still has two episodes left this season and airs Tuesday nights at 8:30 pm EST on ABC.
