Fall TV Preview

ABC Renews Private Practice, Body of Proof and Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23

ABC has ordered additional seasons of its medical dramas Private Practice and Body of Proof and the racy freshman sitcom Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23.

Private Practice, which will be entering its sixth season, is said to have netted a 13-episode — and possibly final-season — order. Body of Proof was renewed for Season 3, our sister site Deadline reports.

Other current ABC dramas set to return in the fall include Castle, Grey’s Anatomy, Once Upon a Time, Revenge and the frothy freshman Scandal. As for new dramas, ABC has thus far greenlit Nashville (fronted by Connie Britton), Zero Hour, Red Widow, the Shawn Ryan submarine thriller Last Resort and the supernatural spooker 666 Park Avenue (with Lost‘s Terry O’Quinn and Desperate Housewives‘ Vanessa Williams).

On the comedy front, in addition to Apartment 23, ABC has renewed Happy Endings, The Middle, Modern Family and Suburgatory. Last Man Standing remains on the bubble.

    Shonda tweeted that Private Practice has been picked up too!!! Yay!!

    • filmex says:

      Oh yeah. The series that brought torture porn to primetime (incinerated wives, car-mangled heart-throbs, babies cut from wombs, brutal rape and assault) will be back. Woo-Hoo!

      It better hope it gets the cushy spot following “Grey’s” because it could never survive in the real world.

  2. ggny says:

    to quote Daniel Bryan…YES! YES! YES!

    I love that Apt 23 is coming back

  3. Lorie says:

    Re: Body of Proof…THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! So happy it was renewed.

  4. tvaddict says:

    At least they will be back. So far my only shows to get the axe are GCB and Secret Circle….BUT they were 2 of my favorites!!!!!!!

  6. Martina says:

    I’m so glad Body of Proof got renewed, it ended on such a cliff hanger

  7. How many episodes for PP and Bitch? They only said 13 for Body of proof.

    • Jennifer says:

      No they said a final season of 13 episodes for private practice but they never said how many for Body of Proof

      • Kristen says:

        They said a possible final season for PP. They got 13 episodes, so depending on ratings, it could be extended or final. Body of Proof is a full season I believe.

  8. Jarrod says:

    Hopefully all with a full season pick-up. ;)

  9. ChrisGa says:

    Fantastic news about BOP…..Dana Delaney not being on my TV every week would def be a crime.

  10. Kirk says:

    So happy that Apartment 23 is coming back! My favorite new sitcom

  11. Laura says:

    AWESOME!!! love PP and BOP…..love Shonda shows…still sad for GCB and TSC

  12. TV Gord says:

    Pleasantly surprised for all, but especially happy about Body of Proof.

  13. K says:

    YES!! PRIVATE PRACTICE!!! Woohoo!!! :D

  14. Bonnie says:

    BoP, yayyy!!

  15. Linda says:

    So pysched about the Body of Proof Renewal. Looks like with that and Castle I will still be watching network tv for at least another season. Thank you so much for the great news.

  16. ben says:

    I’d really like to see Last Man Standing come back.

  17. And with that Body of Proof is trending world wide

  18. Rachael says:

    I’m still ecstatic that Castle was renewed!!!

  19. leigh says:

    Yeah to Body of Proof!

  20. Behzad says:

    What about Devious Maids? It looked like a sure pickup.

  21. So glad Body of Proof is renewed! And Private Practice as well.

  22. Fernanda says:

    I Think PP or BOP must move to Sundays

  23. Ethel says:

    So glad to see Body of Proof renewed


  25. Babygate says:

    Very good news! I was confident PP would be renewed, even if it’s for a last season. I’m kind of shocked but very, very happy that BoP was renewed. It really is a great show that kind of breaks away from the soapy formula that ABC seems to favor. It should be paired up with Castle and/or Scandal. They are the closest thing to a procedural that ABC has.
    On another note, can ABC reconsider the name of 666 Park Avenue? It sounds too sinister. The name matters, they should have learned that lesson from Cougartown.

  26. llws88 says:

    Today has been such great news for so many GREAT shows! Im happy ABC decided to do right by PP and give it another season to close out the series :)

  27. Kelly says:

    Would have traded GCB for APT. 23 GCB is way funnier!

  28. Boiler says:

    Will miss GCB but like their decisions. Now get rid of or cut back DWTS!!

  29. Ela says:


  30. Heather says:

    Happy that BoP got renewed but THRILLED for Private Practice!! I was getting worried for a bit there. I officially didn’t lose a single one of my favorite shows for next year and that has never happened for me! Excited that Connie Britton will be back on my TV next year too! =D

  31. GCB FAN says:

    I can’t believe they renew these crappie dramas and not GCB. Private Practice especially. Does anyone even watch that show anymore?

    • mauib says:

      If we see it, but had a setback in his last chapter PP has remained on the air for 5 years and has fans in Latin America and elsewhere (eg Italy) and this was his best season. We are happy to renew maybe the last.

  32. Shaun says:

    BoP and PP jumped the shark.BoP needs to get back to Megan’s family time more and PP needs to send away multiple characters(including ridiculous Addison and Sam).

    • CJ says:

      When you name the changes these shows need to make, you’re by definition contradicting yourself. If a show has “jumped the shark,” it can’t be fixed.

  33. Bobbi says:

    Very happy Private Practice and Body of Proof were renewed! Feeling fortunate that I’ve only lost one of the shows I really enjoy – Harry’s Law. This is good news!

  34. Eled says:

    Happy and surprised about Body of Proof. I thought it was a goner for sure. Shocked about Private practice. Their last outing was only 6.1 with a 1.5 demo. How did this get renewed? Not sure about the B in apartment 23. It started out strong but I’m loosing interest quickly.

  35. bad kevin says:

    Don’t know on whether or not Americana did get pick up as a series for ABC.

  36. Lisa says:

    Yay Body of Proof and Private Practice. So happy you both got renewed

  37. Beverly says:

    Body of Proof has been renewed . . . . so why isn’t it showing up on the reported fall schedules?

  38. Looking forward on the additional seasons. Hopefully in Apartment 23, there would be some scene where the girl will look for another apartment for rent or for sale like a penthouse apartment but still she ends up bringing back to apartment 23.

  39. Fantastic goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you are
    just extremely wonderful. I actually like what you’ve acquired
    here, certainly like what you’re stating and the
    way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still
    take care of to keep it sensible. I can not wait to read much more from you.
    This is actually a tremendous web site.
