The latest network to hop on the early renewal train is ABC. The network has just announced the renewal of 7 of its scripted series for the 2012-2013 seasons. With Finale Season already in full swing it is relieving to know that some of our favorite shows will be returning for another season. CBS has already renewed 18 of their scripted shows to return next season and we have been anxiously awaiting the news on some of our favorite ABC dramas, and comedies. We were rewarded last night as ABC announced their list of renewals for the 2012-2013 seasons. Along with ABC, you can look forward to seeing hits from CBS and NBC like ‘2 Broke Girls’, ’48 Hours Mystery’, ‘Grimm’, ‘Smash’ and ‘Community’ just to name a few. Here is a list of ABC shows that have gotten the green light for 2012-2013 seasons.
- Renewed Dramas: ABC has renewed four of its drama series yesterday, renewing veteran hits like ‘Castle’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ for fifth and ninth seasons respectively, thanks to the news. In addition to that, two other dramas have received early orders from ABC, the dark soap opera ‘Revenge’ and the fairy-tale epic drama ‘Once Upon a Time’. Both shows are finishing up their freshman seasons this month.
- Renewed Comedies: ABC was kind with its renewals of comedies as well. The three that made the cut were fan favorite ‘Modern Family’, the surreal ‘Suburgatory’ and ‘The Middle’ an oft-unsung favorite of families and some critics—also got picked for its fourth season.
Still waiting on the decision about whether or not ‘Happy Endings’ and ‘Last Man Standing’ will get picked up, but if they do that will take care of the comedies on ABC. The rest of ABC dramas did not fare so well. Still waiting to be picked up are ‘Private Practice’ and ‘Body of Proof’, it might be too soon to tell but we are still waiting to hear about the fate of ‘Missing’ and ‘GCB’.
