Production

It was confirmed on April 7, 2017, that the series would return for a second season which would premiere in 2018. However, due to Bridgit Mendler and Chris D'Elia's busy schedules, it was delayed to Early 2019. But it was moved back to 2018.

Shortly after, On May 4, 2017, The AMN placed an order for a third season with a premiere date of Fall 2018. The reason for the renewals is because Undateable Live! was the network's highest rated show at the time, with the network's comedies doing 0.6-0.7 with 2 million viewers on average and the dramas doing 0.5-0.8 with 3 million viewers. However, the show's steep drop in ratings during Season 2 meant it was no longer the best rated show on the network, actually being within the bottom 3.
