Bunheads: ABC Family Orders More Episodes

Bunheads on ABC Family renewedThis Monday night marks the finale of Bunheads but it won’t be the last episode. ABC Family has ordered additional episodes of the freshman dramedy.

Bunheads revolves around a Las Vegas showgirl (Sutton Foster) who ends up widowed and teaching dance in a small town far from the Strip. The rest of the cast includes Kaitlyn Jenkins, Julia Goldani Telles, Bailey Buntain, Emma Dumont, Kelly Bishop, and Alan Ruck. To date, the TV show has averaged a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.37 million total viewers.

In addition to today’s good news for Bunheads fans, ABC Family renewed Melissa & Joey, Switched at Birth and Baby Daddy for new seasons and cancelled Jane By Design.

Rather than give Bunheads a new season order, the cable channel execs have instead given Bunheads a full first season instead. It’s unknown how many additional episodes have been ordered but at least eight are expected.

The Amy Sherman-Palladino series is expected to go back into production in October and new episodes should start airing in early 2013.

What do you think? Are you glad to hear that Bunheads will be back? Would you have preferred a full second season order instead?

    Just finished watching the summer finale. Bunheads is my must watch program!
    My little ballerina loves the thought of one day dancing like the Sasha, Bo, Melanie, and Ginny. Hurry back. We’ll watch the DVR recordings until it returns.

    Bunheads is witty and refreshingly funny. The humor is a combination of Michele’s off beat funny style and the towny’s who love their quiet spot that Michele is shaking up! My wife and I love this show, oh and Boo is phenomenal !!!
