ABC Family’s summer lineup will remain in tact as the season ends, as the cabler has announced a Season 3 order for “Switched at Birth,” as well was additional episode orders for newbie series “The Fosters” and “Twisted.”
“It’s thrilling to count our two freshman series, ‘The Fosters’ and ‘Twisted,’ among our stable of strong, must-see, must-tweet series,” Kate Juergens, executive vice president of original programming and development at ABC Family, said in a statement on Tuesday (July 30). “‘Switched at Birth’ is like no other show on television and we are so proud to have it as a part of our family. Adding additional seasons and episodes of our returning series spotlights how well our programming resonates with our audience.”
All three shows will premiere alongside fellow returning series “Pretty Little Liars” in January 2014.
The back-order pick-ups for “The Fosters” and “Twisted” come as a no-brainer after the network canceled low-rated series “The Lying Game” and “Bunheads” in recent weeks.
