ABC Family Orders More MELISSA & JOEY

Melissa & Joey - Taylor Spreitler, Nick Robinson, Joey Lawrence, and Melissa Joan Hart

Melissa & Joey seems to be doing pretty well for ABC Family as they’ve ordered more episodes of the hit show. This brings the first season order to a total of 30 episodes of the original comedy series starring Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence.

Kate Juergens, executive vice president of Original Programming & Development at ABC Family says, “we couldn’t be happier to have ‘Melissa & Joey’ return with more episodes. The chemistry between the two has again proven to be a hit with our viewers. We’re so proud of them and excited to have original comedy on ABC Family.”

Melissa & Joey Synopsis: Melissa Joan Hart portrays Mel, the grown-up former wild child of a political family who is now a local politician herself. When her sister ends up in prison and brother-in-law flees after a scandal hits, Mel must take responsibility for her teenaged niece, Lennox, and adolescent nephew, Ryder. Spread too thin to manage by herself, help comes in the unlikely form of Joe (Lawrence) who, desperate for a job, moves in and becomes the family’s “manny.”

Melissa & Joey airs on Tuesday nights at 8:00PM ET/PT on ABC Family.
