ABC Family Orders More Bunheads, Renews Switched at Birth, and Cancels Jane By Design

There was good news all around at ABC Family today unless your name is Jane By Design. The teen version of ABC renewed Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, and Switched at Birth for new seasons, and ordered more episodes of its new charmer Bunheads. As for Jane By Design? More like Jane Bye Bye. It's been canceled, says TV Line.

Melissa & Joey, starring Melissa and Joey, will be back for Season 3 in the spring, Baby Daddy's second season will also premiere in the spring, and Switched at Birth will enter its sophomore season this winter. Bunheads, the fast-talking freshman drama from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, will extend its first-season run with more episodes starting this winter. I think. The press release was a little confusing.

Jane By Design was given a chance to improve on its initial ratings with an order of additional episodes for its first season, but the show didn't deliver. The series ended its season with a disappointing audience of 1.18 million viewers.

Yes, we live in a world where Babby Daddy gets renewed. But hey, more Bunheads! Yay!
