(Three cheers, Castle and Beckett fans! Celebration nookie?)
ABC also renewed Modern Family, The Middle, Suburgatory, Shark Tank, America's Funniest Home Videos and Wife Swap. According to Entertainment Weekly, Grey’s spinoff Private Practice is considered likely receive a 13-episode order. Happy Endings and Last Man Standing are still expected to get a pickup at some point and Scandal is also likely to see a second season. GCB, Missing and Body of Proof are still “on the bubble” — which is the “fingers crossed” zone — while The River and Pan Am are just waiting to be declared officially dead.
UPDATE: On May 11 it was revealed that ABC had renewed Scandal and Happy Endings, but not GCB. Those Good Christian B-tches Belles must not be feeling too good right about now!
ABC’s official fall upfront presentation will be held on Tuesday, when there should be more news about the network’s lineup.
In the meantime, congrats to all the returning shows — and the fans who love them!
