What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the HBO cable channel, the Betty TV show stars Nina Moran, Dede Lovelace, Moonbear, Rachelle Vinberg, and Ajani Russell, with Katerina Tannenbaum, Andrew Darnell, Lil’ Dre, Chef Roblé Ali, Rad Pereira, Isabel Palma, Eisa Davis, Danielle Melendez, Aya Aldamin, Florence Pedrosa Blake Mourad, Alexander Cooper, Raekwon Haynes, Moisés Acevedo, Judah Lang, Joe Apollonio, and Sage Ceasar. Set against the backdrop of New York City, the series follows a diverse group of young women as they navigate their lives through the predominantly male-oriented world of skateboarding. In season two, the five protagonists step firmly into womanhood and tackle all the challenges it brings. As they navigate the pressures of adulthood, their male counterparts start to step up, step in, and become true allies, forming a united front for the greater good. Set in the last chapter of 2020, the season captures the pandemic in the Big Apple, where masks and outside activities are the norm.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of Betty averaged a 0.02 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 102,000 viewers in the live+same day ratings (includes all DVR playback through 3:00 AM). Compared to season one, that’s down by 50% in the demo and down by 31% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. Though there can be other economic factors involved, the higher-rated shows usually get renewed and the lower-rated ones get cancelled. Find out how Betty stacks up against other HBO TV shows.

Betty has been cancelled, so there will not be a third season. Stay tuned for further updates.
Will HBO cancel or renew Betty for season three? While the traditional ratings for the first season were quite low, the critic and audience reception were quite good. My sense is that the series isn’t overly expensive to produce so I think it will be renewed, as long as creator Crystal Moselle feels there’s more story to tell.
