Black-Ish More Episodes

black-ish, The Goldbergs and More ABC Comedies Snag Extra Episode Orders

ABC’s faith in its Wednesday comedy lineup (plus one Tuesday favorite!) remains strong.

The Middle, The Goldbergs, black-ish and Fresh Off the Boat have each received two additional episode orders for their current seasons, according to our sister site Deadline, while two extra Modern Family episodes are reportedly also expected to be ordered.

All of the above shows — excluding Modern Family, as that deal has yet to be confirmed — are now looking at 24-episode seasons. (Fresh Off the Boat, originally ordered for a 13-episode season, received a back-nine order prior to this new round of pickups.)

    I am glad that ABC gave The Goldbergs, Fresh off the Boat, and Blackish an opportunity to catch on. The leads on Fresh are fantastic, the writing on The Goldbergs is sharp, and the casting on Blackish is genius…not a weak link in the bunch.

    That’s why they called it ABC FUNNY for a reason.

  3. Spence says:

    Blackish, Middle, and Fresh off the Boat are all amazing!! Goldbergs is also pretty funny, but the first three shows are seriously amazing comedies.

  4. Yay! More of my favorite comedies!

    This is amazing news…I can never have enough of The Middle & Black-ish.
    Black-ish should be more popular, it’s miles ahead of Modern Family in humor.

    The Middle………Yay!!!

  13. Amber says:

    Yes, definitely. Shows twenty years ago were doing more than 22 episodes so why not now?

    I do believe ABC has taken over NBC’s “Must See TV” for comedy.
