ABC has handed out super-sized orders to a number of its best performers – Modern Family, The Goldbergs, Black-ish, The Middle, Grey’s Anatomy, Once Upon A Time and Castle.
Per Deadline, Modern Family, The Goldbergs, Black-ish, The Middle have been rewarded with two additional episodes. Black-ish already had a back-nine order, bringing all four comedies to a total of 24 episodes. Medical drama Grey’s Anatomy also moves up to 24 episodes.
Once Upon A Time‘s Frozen-inspired fourth season gains an additional hour, taking it to 23 episodes, along with Castle.
Resurrection misses out on an expanded order after ABC decided at the last minute not to increase the supernatural drama’s second season from 13 to 14 episodes.
Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder were not on the table for a top up due to their dense serialized nature and Viola Davis‘ contract, but already look safe for renewal.
