Exclusive: Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy to Return in December with Special Holiday Episodes

Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy sign off tonight with summer finales (starting at 8/7c), but ABC Family’s comedy block will be back later this year with special holiday installments, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Original episodes of both sitcoms will air in December as part of ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas.

And as teased in the following promo, the most wonderful time of the year may bring romance for one would-be couple.

  • So does this mean that instead of airing 15 episodes in the summer it’ll only be 12, assuming that they’ll air 3 out of the 15 in December

      • It said “holiday installments” so I assumed it’ll be 2-3 episodes

        • “Holiday Installments” as they’ll be one episode of Baby Daddy and one episode of Melissa and Joey which is two, which is plural. Few shows make multiple holiday episodes.

          • The question is,is it a Christmas special made just for Christmas or is it just a Christmas episode every other tv show has, that they decided to air in December instead of next year?If it’s the latter,there probably should be a couple of episodes leading up to it for continuity purposes .Either way,I’ll take what I can get.

  • In an odd twist of fate they could/should make Ben gay. I know some people wouldn’t like it, but it would give a dynamic to the show that I for one would like.

  • So glad we won’t have to wait until 2014 to see another Melissa & Joey episode. They are so cute together. Great chemistry.

  • In 2014 Does anyone know when baby daddy and Mel & Joey come back for season 3

  • Seeing Trevor Donovan on Melissa and Joey was a very pleasant surprise. I’d love to see him have his own show on ABC Family. He’s such a bright ray of sunshine. Once M and J get together the show is less fun and exciting.
