Late Friday (May 10th) evening, ABC announced that Modern Family, Once Upon A Time, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, Revenge, Suburgatory, The Middle, Last Man Standing, Castle and freshman series Nashville have all been picked up for the 2013-2014 season. As EW reports, the network also later picked up bubble comedy The Neighbors about a family that moves into a neighborhood populated by aliens for a second season.
The bevy of pick-ups comes as good news for fans of ABC’s family comedies and addictive soaps. However, not all of ABC’s series were spared: the cult comedy Happy Endings was axed after three seasons, while Dana Delany’s Body of Proof, Red Widow, How to Live with Your Parents for the Rest of Your Life, Family Tools and Reba McEntire’s Malibu Country were all cancelled as well.
ABC will announce their full 2013-2014 schedule Tuesday, May 14th at their annual upfront presentation.
