ABC Family made some big lineup moves on Friday (Jan. 30) night, ordering three new shows, renewing two others and canceling one of the network’s highest profile shows.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC Family has renewed “Greek” for a third season and the critically acclaimed “Lincoln Heights” for a fourth season. Both shows have been picked up for 10 episodes.
The future is also looking good, not-so-surprisingly, for “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.” ABC Family’s smash hit drama is expected to be renewed, though sides are still discussing the length of the order.
Things are bleak, however, for “Kyle XY.” The highly regarded sci-fi mystery has reportedly been cancelled after three seasons. The third season premiered only two weeks ago. No reason was given for the cancellation.
ABC Family will triply fill the gap left by “Kyle XY,” ordering 10 episode seasons of the comedies “Ruby and the Rockits” and “10 Things I Hate About You,” as well as the drama “Perfect 10.”
Based on the movie of the same name (the Hollywood Reporter doesn’t care to mention “Taming of the Shrew”), “10 Things I Hate About You” focuses on the Stratford Sisters, independent-minded Kate (Lindsey Shaw) and social butterfly Bianca (Meaghan Jette Martin).
“Ruby” stars Patrick Cassidy as a former teen idol living incognito with his wife and sons. When his brother and former bandmate (David Cassidy) shows up in town with his daughter (Alexa Vega), everything becomes complicated.
And “Perfect 10” focuses on a group of teenage Olympic gymnastic hopefuls.
