Indeed, the statistics of the current season of Divorce look more promising. The second season's premiere has garnered 0.647 million viewers with a 0.22 key demo (P18-49). On the other hand, we've been witnessing a significant drop in the viewership during the airing of the fourth episode titled "Ohio" (229K viewers). We discover thereby that the dynamics of Divorce are quite volatile. Without a doubt, these data indicate that the show is now in danger zone.
However, let's take a look at the response by the target audience. These figures look optimistic, generally speaking. On Rotten Tomatoes, the second season of HBO's Divorce has a score of 6.7/10 and an 88% approval rating among critics, while the viewers have evaluated the 2nd installment of the show at 3.8/5/85%. In spite of this, the visitors of Metacritic have estimated the current season of Divorce at 4.8/10. In the meantime, the show's overall score on IMDb is still average, 6.7/10 > 4,000 votes. Thus, once, Divorce already managed to avoid cancelation on HBO. Who knows; maybe HBO will take these indicators into account.
Summing up, though Divorce was low in the ratings, the show, nevertheless, managed to attract more audience in its 2nd season's premiere. Besides, the response from critics and viewers was surprisingly positive even in comparison with those of Season 1. As a result, we tend to think that Divorce has a good chance for the next season on HBO, despite quite mixed and controversial statistics. We just need to wait for a while before the official announcement by HBO.
