New Episodes Ordered For ABC Shows

Detroit 1-8-7 Pilot

ABC has been busy sorting out their fall schedule this week. First they canceled The Whole Truth, and now they’ve ordered additional episodes of four of their primetime shows—No Ordinary Family, Brothers & Sisters, Detroit 1-8-7, and Better With You.

It’s really good news for new series No Ordinary Family and Better With You, which each received full season orders. Michael Chiklis and Julie Benz star as the heads of the supernatural Powell family in the hourlong drama No Ordinary Family. Better With You is a comedy about three couples in various stages of their romantic relationships, and it stars Jennifer Finnigan and JoAnna Garcia.

Another new series, Detroit 1-8-7, is getting five more episodes (for a total of 18). Detroit 1-8-7 stars Michael Imperioli as a Detroit Homicide detective, and the show is shot entirely in Michigan.

ABC also bumped returning series Brothers & Sisters from 18 to 22 episodes. When ABC only ordered 18 episodes of the show last year, rumors swirled that the show was on the verge of cancellation. By bringing up their order to a full 22 episodes, ABC seems to be giving Brothers & Sisters a vote of confidence.

I’m pretty happy that Detroit 1-8-7, my favorite new show of the season, has been given more episodes. It’s not a full season pickup, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will happen. What do you think of this news? Do you watch any of these shows?
