The half-hour comedy, starring Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence, is currently in the middle of its first season. The show will return for Season 2 in 2012.
“Melissa & Joey have proven to be a comedic powerhouse, with wonderful chemistry that has resonated with viewers in the tradition of great television pairings,” said ABC Family president Michael Riley. “As our focus on comedy continues to develop, we’re delighted to see it return next year as an integral part of the network’s expanding slate of original series.”
Meanwhile, no decision has been made about the fate of the network’s in-limbo gymnastics drama Make It or Break It.
