To fans' delight, Home Economics is back for an all-new season. The series that follows three siblings as they try to navigate adulthood, and each other, returns on a mission to keep viewers laughing and thoroughly entertained. 

Now for those that haven’t quite caught onto the show yet, our best way of describing it is by telling you to think of it as a Modern Family meets Happy Endings, with a dash of This Is Us thrown into the mix (even though its a sitcom, Home Economics does tend to take on a few more serious aspects of life).  

If you’re looking forward to the brand new episodes, here’s everything you need to know about Home Economics season 3.  

When is the Home Economics season 3 release date?

Home Economics season 3 debuts live on Wednesday, September 21, at 9:30 pm ET/PT on ABC. 

Here's the synopsis for the premiere episode titled "Mickey Ears, $19.99": 

"Tom finds out that Connor is his new boss, which threatens to ruin Marina’s perfectly planned trip to the Happiest Place on Earth – Disneyland Resort in California."

Check out the sneak peek.

What is Home Economics season 3 about? 

Looking to the season 2 finale, there is a major clue as to what’s to come in the new episodes. After facing some rough breakups and almost going to space to find solace, rich brother Connor (Jimmy Tatro) finds some purpose and good use of his money by pouring some of his wealth into the Dutch Media Firm. This is the very same firm that he used to help the writer in the family, Tom (Topher Grace), find a publishing home for his book. We can only imagine what will happen when Tom finds out his younger brother is the reason he’s going to be a published author.

Home Economics has been compromised of an amazing ensemble cast since the very beginning, and the series regulars that helped to make the show a hit are all returning. Leading the bunch is Topher Grace. Grace should look instantly recognizable to many fans having starred as Venom in Spider-Man 3, David Duke in BlacKkKlansman and of course, as Eric Forman in That '70s Show. (Be on the lookout for him to reprise the role of Eric in the forthcoming That '90s Show.)

Rounding out the rest of the main cast are the following: 

  • Caitlin McGee (Mythic Quest) as Sarah  
  • Jimmy Tatro (American Vandal) as Connor 
  • Karla Souza (How to Get Away with Murder) as Marina 
  • Sasheer Zamata (Woke) as Denise
  • Shiloh Bearman (The Republic of Sarah) as Gretchen
  • Jordyn Curet (Nash Bridges) as Shamiah
  • Chloe Jo Rountree (I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson) as Camila 
  • JeCobi Swain (Obi-Wan Kenobi) as Kelvin
