ABC Family Renews Melissa & Joey for Season 4, But There's Still No Word on Bunheads

By Tim Surette

ABC Family has asked for a whole lot more of Melissa & Joey, tacking on extra episodes to the about-to-debut third season, and placing an early order for Season 4. The third and fourth seasons will each consist of 20 episodes, and the move will bring the series up to a total of 100 episodes by the conclusion of its fourth season. However, everywhere I've looked online I only see it getting to 85 episodes; where is the Melissa & Joey wiki when I need one?

Melissa & Joey stars Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence, which should give you an indication about what kind of show this is. Hart plays a local politician raising a teenage daughter, and Lawrence plays her male nanny. Hey, why not?

This is a perfect time to remind you that while ABC Family has ordered a ton of Melissa & Joey, it still has not made a decision on the very watchable Bunheads, the future of which does not look good. That should put you in a great mood for the rest of the day!

    I love Melissa & Joey as its The best on-air show currently! The Mel-Joe banter is priceless and Lennox, Ryder are great as always. Sterling Knight has been exceptional in this season as Zander Carlson. Make him a permanent character in the next season, its a sincere request. to the producers and ABCFamily. Looking forward to season 4. Thanks for making us laugh all through your successful run!

    I love the show! I would like to see season 4 pick up with a new thread though. Please blow Austin off and start a frezh with Mel and Joe as couple...they have courted for three years! Havethe close intimate wedding let the kids go to college and let's finally see what hilarity comes from the two of them having a baby and figuring out the logistics of maybe twins perhaps. Have the whose the boss turn into Ricky and Lucy.

    Love this show! I loved bun heads too! I also loved make it break it. I'm seriously thinking about not watching new shows on abc or abc family anymore. Everytime I really like one they cancel it. Ticks me off! Quit bringing out so much new stuff until the other ones have been on a while and you can end it good!!!!!

    Only 20 for 2 seasons!

    I've actually been watching Melissa & Joey back to back on Netflix for the past few days! I was a fan of Sabrina the Teenage Witch and feel MJH can do no wrong and add Joey "Whoa" Lawrence and it's the nostalgia wagon all they way! Love this cute show:-)

    Okay Gang – The TV season is officially over for a while and the articles’ are a bit weak – good, but weak. So, as one of the big TV buffs on here, along with Fringe Fanatic, Vicky8675309, Grumpyclown, JT Kirk, Taccado, and quite a few others, I’m going to post my picks for the top ten shows for this century, so far.

    Hopefully one of the staffers will pick up the ball and post an official article – TIM! I must note that my favorites may not coincide with yours and I don’t watch Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood and a few very popular others, so they won’t be on my list. But I do acknowledge these shows as legitimate favorites because many of you very bright people seem to love them. So here goes nothin’:

    1. Fringe
    2. Human Target
    3. Bunheads
    4. Sherlock
    5. Person of Interest
    6. Dexter
    7. The Big Bang Theory
    8. The Good Wife
    9. The Newsroom – flawed, but still great.
    10. Beauty and the Beast – just kidding – Orphan Black for reals

    I haven’t seen enough of Rectify so I can’t say for sure, but I suspect that one might be a winner, too. Note, my top two, and possibly 3 have been cancelled prematurely but are still my faves…

    Bunheads is an awesome show! I loved the first season and was very much looking forward to a second one. BRING BACK BUNHEADS ABC Family!!!!!!!!!!!

    Melissa Joan Hart is not the greatest looking lass or the best comedian but she is very easily to watch, her show is not that brilliant but is fun to pass time with.

    I am happy about Melissa and Joey cause even thought is not the best or even funniest show on tv, it's still very enjoyable and fun to watch. ABCfamily should renew Bunheads cause the show is indeed very watchable. Also, does anyone know if Switched at birth is renewed? Cause the last season was just great!
