ABC Family Orders More Bunheads, Renews Switched at Birth and 2 Others, Cancels Jane

Get More: News, Renewals

Somewhere, Amy Sherman-Palladino is doing a happy dance.

ABC Family has ordered additional episodes of the Gilmore Girls creator’s ballerina tale Bunheads. Additionally, the cabler has renewed Melissa & Joey, Switched at Birth and Baby Daddy, while Jane By Design has been given the ax.

The Bunheads extension (which is rumored to be around eight episodes) ensures that Monday’s episode will be a summer and not a series finale. The Sutton Foster-Kelly Bishop dramedy is expected to resume production in October and return on air in early ’13.

Melissa & Joey will be heading into its third season, while Switched at Birth and Baby Daddy will both be entering Season 2. (The second half of SaB‘s rookie season bows Sept. 3; Baby Daddy and Melissa & Joey wrap Season 1 and Season 2, respectively, on Aug. 29.)

Finally, the decision to pull the plug on the struggling Jane By Design comes just weeks after the show ended its first season with 1.2 million viewers and a 0.4 demo rating, representing half of its Pretty Little Liars lead-in.

Thoughts? Which renewal are you most relieved about? Hit the comments!

  • Whoo Hoo!! Love Bunheads and Switched at Birth!

    • I love Switched at Birth and like Bunheads. It will be pushed into my love category if a great romantic storyline can be weaved in…like rory/Jess or Lorelai/Luke.

      • I agree about the love storyline. I do like Boo and the Astaire kid. But I don’t know about Michelle. They need a good love storyline for her. Wish they had not killed off Hubble. I liked them together.

        • I agree. I was okay with killing off Hubble when I thought they were going to spend a little more time exploring the effects of his death on Michelle and Fanny, but I think the writers dropped that element too quickly for it to be worth the lack of romance. As a result, Michelle’s storylines feel inconsequential, even in this low-stakes setting. This show needs a stronger relationship, even if it’s Michelle and Fanny; something for us to really care about, like Lorelai and Rory, Luke and Lorelai, Lorelai and her parents, Rory and Dean/Jess…

          • I totally agree with you and I thought I was the only one who felt this way. It just doesn’t seem realistic that the reactions to Hub’s death were basically glossed over.

            Comment by Kim – August 21, 2012 04:11 AM PDT  
          • I agree. I loved Gilmore Girls (and still do) and I am loving Bunheads, but I loved what Hubble brought to Michelle. As far as Lorelai and Luke—-more. These shows take the sting of reality away and you can just drift off into another world.

      • I have enjoyed Bunheads. But no comparison to Luke & Loralie. Would love another season, can they get Scott Patterson??!!

      • I think this is backwards! LOVED Gilmore Girls, but Gilmore Girls had something Bunheads is totally missing. Bunheads is too harsh and focuses on the kids too much whereas Gilmore Girls handled both age groups much better. Additionally, am very sad to hear that Jane by Design has been cancelled. What were they thinking?

          Ah!!!! Hallo?!??!? Didn’t you know about the Illuminati controlling major TV shows out there,……You will never see a good TV show (Jane by design, Wedding band, Dollhouse, Chuck, and so on) lasting longer, but most of the time you’ll see repetitive and unoriginal TV shows that reflect social conditioning, because that’s the Illuminati propaganda.

          • I agree Jane by Esign was awesome they totally should not have cancelled. And I don’t get why they are keeping Bunheads it is not that good and def not better than JBD

            Comment by Katie – September 13, 2012 04:46 PM PDT  
          • I’m super sad that they are cancelling Jane by design too!!! i was really looking forward to the new season! :( they should bring it back. I’m glad that Bun heads is coming back though, but they should definately have kept JBD as well.

            Comment by Veronica – December 8, 2012 10:34 PM PDT  
    • Since Switched at Birth started, been searching for Jane by Design. What were the executives thinking? Jane by Design was terrific, and they bring back BUNHEADS? Please, stick me with a fork, I’m done with trying to understand this network.

  • Yeah! More Bunheads!

    Comment by Mindy – August 17, 2012 12:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Officially over the moon about Bunheads, Does this mean a second season or just more episodes to come in this one? I mean, the finale is next week…

    Comment by Houman Sadri – August 17, 2012 12:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I was wondering that myself. Perhaps the finale will become the mid-season finale.

      Comment by ClearlyDemented – August 17, 2012 12:32 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • This means that this monday is the season break not the season finale. ABC picked up 8 more episodes to finish out the season (affectionately known as “picking up the back end of the season”) which I’m guessing will probably air somewhere around January. The next eight episodes will still be season one. A season two renewal would be a different thing. So let’s keep our fingers crossed that the ratings are solid and that Amy Sherman Palladino can clean up the show a little bit so that it gets a little more buzz.

      • got to say I was very happy to see a new bunheads being aired. I really good show. so glad it isn’t cancelled.

        Comment by Robin – January 16, 2013 03:36 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I think it means that season 1 will resume during the winter or sometime later in the year with additional episodes. I guess it’s even better than a season 2 renewal, cause it means they want it back on screen sooner than next summer.

  • Love Bunheads, Switched At Birth, Melissa & Joey, and Baby’s Daddy! So this is all fantastic news. Curious about Jane By Design though. I wouldn’t mind that being renewed!

    Comment by Vannesa – August 17, 2012 12:30 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Switched at Birth returns with new episodes on September 3. The new eps are still considered part of season 1 though. I would guess season 2 would start either in January or sometime next spring.

I wouldn’t find out what happens to Billly and Jane-Jane & Eli-Jane & Jeremy-Jeremy and India-India & Eli-Rita & Ben- Billy and gf-and what happens after Gray finds out Jane designing in her high school drama club? It’s very upsetting, frustrating. ABC PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!! It’s a mistake JBD have a lot of fans!

        • Officially depressed to say the least! I love this show! I think they need to re-evaluate and listen to the fan base! So many new fans who just barely caught on due to netflix. Please bring it back! Sign the petitions peeps theres a bunch out there and the creator of the show tweeted back she really appreciated the support

        • I’m very disappointed that I will not find out what happens to Billy and Jane and Jame and Eli. It’s just very upsetting. I came to love the show. I think it was a mistake to not give them more seasons on tv. We need to see JBD back. Please bing it back.

  • Bunheads is only okay, it’s nothing compared to Gilmore Girls. LOVE Switched at Birth, but also curious about Jane by Design. It’s a pretty cute show. My favorites remain Pretty Little Liars and Lying Game though. Unfortunately, ABC Family always cancels awesome shows too soon (Wildfire, Beautiful People, 10 Things I Hate About You, Make It Or Break It, Falcon Beach…and Greek, though I guess that show had run long enough).

    • Agreed. I think I only watch Bunheads because I loved Gilmore Girls so much, but the show really isn’t that great. I think it’s because while Sutton Foster is great, she’s no Lauren Graham who was perfect as Lorelai. Foster is just too awkward and it makes the show disjointed to me. I say this, though, as a 31 year old watching the show, so maybe I’m just too old for it.

  • I don’t know how they renewed Bunheads and cancelled Jane By Design! JBD was a very cute, heartwarming show. I just could not get into Bunheads after the first few episodes. I am so bummed about JBD – now we will never know if Jane and Billy would ever be more than friends. Boo! :(

  • Bit surprised they renewed Bunheads even though if I’m not mistaken it’s doing worse than JBD (which I’ve never seen, but have heard lots of good things about, so definitely wanted to give it a shot). Glad it’s returning though. It’s not Gilmore Girls, but it’s the next best thing and sort of feels like having them back in spirit. You get what you’re given.

    Comment by Mitholas – August 17, 2012 01:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Bunheads was probably picked up because it had better ratings with a crappy lead-in. Secret Life had a little over 1 mil. viewers and Bunheads is adding to those totals where as Jane lost half of the lead-in from Pretty Little Liars. Also Bunheads had the 4th highest ratings on the network behind Pretty Little Liars, The Lying Game and Switched at Birth.

      • Hah! Please don’t state nonsense like it’s fact.
        In the demos, which is all ABC Family cares about, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, and Secret Life all did better than Bunheads, while The Lying Game did much worse.

        • no it did not The Lying Game did alot better than bunheads and Jane by design.It drew a .7 and 1.76 viewers and neither did bunheads or jane by design drew that so please state your facts right.Also the TLG stayed in the .5-.7 demo and with more viewers.You have no clue what you are talking about nick,It also ended with a .6 demo so ya:)

          • ABC Family show averages via TvSeriesFinale dot com:

            PLL: 1.0
            SAB: 0.9
            Secret Life: 0.7
            Baby Daddy: 0.6
            M&J: 0.6
            The Lying Game: 0.5
            Bunheads: 0.5
            Jane By Design: 0.5
            Beverly Hills Nannies: 0.4

            Factor in that Bunheads had the Olympics as competition and a worse lead-in (Secret Life as opposed to PLL), it did better than TLG & JBD. Maybe I was exaggerating when I said “much worse”, but the facts don’t lie.

  • Really sad about JBD. It was such a cute show and had just an interesting storyline. Sad cause we did not get any real closure. I only really watch Bunheads because I like seeing Gilmore Girls 2.0 but I would have chosen Jane over Bunheads easily.

    • I agree completely. Jane by Design was such a sweet show with wonderful relationships between the characters. Although I could have done without Terry Hatcher – those shows just didn’t fit.

    • Love Bunheads so much I couldn’t wait for friends to leave and cuddle into bed to watch. Always disappointed when reruns played rather than a new show but always watched again and again. Pleeeease come on with the new season. And I am 60. Just love this show and couldn’t care less about the others. So Gilmore Girls but very much it’s own show and characters – they’re all wonderful personalities. But surely a little love story for Michelle would be very interesting. Umm maybe the rich guy up the crazy long ‘private’ roadway! And Fanny surely deserves love. So glad ABC Family is bringing it back. Just hurry up already!

I AM SOO EXCITED i have read all the books although they kind of have different story lines i still love them both equally. oh and my heart literally stopped when i found out jane by design is canceled i mean do they only check the number of people who watched the show the night the episodes air because a lot of people don’t have cable and watch it on the computer the next or if they have on demand because i know a lot of people who do that

      • Nobody cares about that because ABC Family does not seel advertising space for the online viewing. It does not earn them money, so it is not a factor in the renewal.

  • Kinda surprised about Jane By Design. Figured ABC Family would want to keep Erica Dasher around since she is a star in the making

  • I’m happy about more Bunheads but upset about Jane by Design.Pll, Bunheads, JBD,Lying Game are the only good shows on abcfamily.Baby Daddy is a copy of Raising Hope & M&J is “Who’s the Boss 2.0″ & not very funny or good, I tried to watch the first several episodes of season one..Just like Nine Lives, JBD is a good show lasting only a season.Switched & Secret Life are awful and SL should only get a very short sixth,final season ala Gossip Girl(10-11 episodes).

  • Boooo on canceling Jane by design, such a cute show, my favorite on the network next to Switched at Birth. I need more Jane/Billy angst.

  • Aww! Well, I watched the show but I am not too saddened by this news. The show was cute and showed promise, but the episodes/storylines became way too repetitive. I felt like I was watching the same episode over and over and over again and was losing interest by the last 4-5 episodes. Unfortunately, I don’t think the writers and producers knew what to do with the show.

    • I think that they wouldn’t have been able to deliver a fulfilling ending. In the end they’d have struggles but make it to the end together.

  • I’m not surprised at JBD-low ratings and Andie McDowell is starring as Judge Oloivia Lockhart on Hallmarks new series Cedar Cove

  • Initially I wasn’t sure about Bunheads, but have come to love it. Looking forward to more episodes. Pretty Little Liars is still the stand-out show on that channel.

  • Oh Nooooo, I loved Jane by design so much (and a lot more than bunheads…). Thats really sad.

  • Is this really a renewal for Bunheads??? I hope it is, but only eight more episodes is like a tease. But, I guess better some than none

    • Not really a renewal; just the back 8, similar to the back 9 that new network shows get during the regular season. But fingers crossed that next winter we get a season 2 pick up :)

  • Love Bunheads and love that many of the actors from Gilmore Girls have been given parts. Would love to see Scott Patterson.

    • I can’t tell you how disappointed I was that Jane was cancelled. You must bring it back so there is a conclusion at least. It was just cute and quirky. Common ABC Family, BRING IT BACK!!!!!

  • YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!! Omg Bunheads is so good! But only 8 episodes?! it deserves way more

    • I agree. Switched at Birth got an extra 22 – why not Bunheads? Still, something is better than nothing and who knows – it might lead to a second season :)

      • Switched at Birth did not get an extra 22 at first, only 12, and Bunheads got almost as much. Also, Switched At Birth got double Bunheads’ ratings for the first leg of its first season.

        • Oh. I must be remembering wrong because I swear I read online (I think even on TVLine) about a year ago that SaB was picked up for an extra 22, making a total of 32 episodes for the first season.

          • Maybe it was an article saying that SAB’s extra order was increased to 22 and you read it wrong?
            Anyway, it doesn’t matter because extra episodes and extra seasons both mean more SAB and Bunheads (yay) :-)
