'The Rookie,' 'Stumptown' & 'mixed-ish' Get Full-Season Orders at ABC
ABC has ordered additional episodes of two of its new series and one of its sophomore hits.
"This fall, Stumptown has delivered a rich, inventive, and fun thrill ride each week with a stellar cast that features one of the most fearless female characters at the center; mixed-ish has established itself as one of the sharpest, funniest, and most original new comedies of the season; and The Rookie has continued to bring compelling storytelling and powerful performances to its passionate and loyal fan base," Burke said in a statement.
"Thanks to the brilliant creative teams behind these series, along with the phenomenal casts and crews, for delivering three incredibly entertaining and distinctive shows," Burke continued. "We're so proud of this great crop of shows that are all off to strong starts this fall, and we can't wait to bring more fantastic episodes to our schedule this season.”
Two shows have already been renewed, but what should happen with the rest of the dramas and comedies?
Mixed-ish is the number one new comedy of the season among adults 18-49, with a 1.80 rating across all platforms in L+7.
