In April 2021, ahead of the second season premiere, the series was renewed for a third season.


Duncanville centers on the life of Duncan Harris, an average 15-year-old boy, who is always one step away from making a bad decision. Along with Duncan lives his mom, a parking enforcement officer, who dreams of being a detective someday and always has to watch Duncan; his dad, who tries to be a better father figure to Duncan than his father was to him; his sister Kimberly, who is a normal teenager going through normal teen-phases; and his other adopted Asian sister Jing, who is an intelligent 5-year-old who is always giving Duncan advice. Mia is Duncan's on-and-off crush.

Why It Rocks

  1. It brings back the charm that other Fox cartoons had such as The Simpsons, Family Guy (first seven seasons), King of the Hill, Futurama, American Dad!, The Cleveland Show (only in Seasons 2-4), and Bob's Burgers.
  2. Very nice and fluid animation with great effort and good movement with excellent facial expressions.
  3. Likable characters such as the main character Duncan, Annie, Jack, Jing, Yangzi, Bex, Mia, Wolf, and many others.
  4. Catchy theme song that is fun to hum and listen to.
  5. Great voice acting such as Amy Poehler, Ty Burrell, Riki Lindhome, Wiz Khalifa and many others.
  6. Unique stories and great writing with many creative concepts executed perfectly such as Annie being a judge on Live Television.
  7. Great jokes with humor actually being funny than being awkward with no toilet humor.
  8. Tons of memorable episodes such as,
    • Sister, Wife
    • Wolf Mother
    • Free Range Children
    • Judge Annie
    • Duncan's New Word
    • Who's Vroomin' Who?
    • Sibling Revelry
    • Party Like a Rocket Star
  1. Thanks to the positive reception, A second and third season have been announced, so the show can maybe even get better.

Bad Qualities

  1. The pilot was rather mean-spirited and depending on your view, was a Duncan torture episode as his family wouldn't talk to him because he accidentally broke a tree while driving.
  2. Kimberly is the least tolerable of the main characters as she always acts like a brat towards Duncan.
  3. The jokes can be childish sometimes.
  4. The character designs are pretty ugly and unappealing, considering the fact that it's animated by Bento Box Entertainment that same studio that animated Allen Gregory.
  5. There's a shameless product placement for Uber in the episode "Fridgy".


Duncanville has received a mixed to positive critical reception. According to Rotten Tomatoes, the series received an 91% on Rotten Tomatoes. On IMDb, it received a 6.1 on IMDb. On Metacritic, it scored a 64, indicating Favorable Reviews.
