ABC Family has announced that the fourth season of Greek will kick off on January 3rd.
There’s been some speculation that this may be the end of the series. Greek was barely renewed for a fourth season due to finances and for far fewer episodes than usual. The drama’s seasons have typically been made up of 20-22 installments. There are only 10 episodes this time around. ABC Family hasn’t made any announcements but, if season four doesn’t perform better than season three, it seems likely this will be the end.
Here’s the ABC Family press release…

Burbank, CA (Wednesday, December 1) – ABC Family’s “Greek” heads into its fourth season with some of Cyprus Rhodes University’s favorite sorority Sisters and fraternity Brothers navigating their post-graduate lives, while the undergrads are taking on new challenges – both in and out of the Greek system. As Casey moves on to law school, what will happen with her “college romance” with Cappie, who walked away from her when he learned she was leaving CRU? Find out when ABC Family’s critically acclaimed original series, “Greek,” returns for an all-new season on Monday, January 3 (9:00 -10:00 PM ET/PT)
Casey and Evan are beginning law school – where Casey’s relationship with Joel (Sam Page) comes back to haunt her. While Evan is still trying to get a grasp on financial obligations with law school, Casey is adapting to her post-graduation life outside of ZBZ.
Meanwhile, Ashleigh is beginning her career in New York City. While she is adjusting to her new life sans-sorority, she quickly realizes how difficult it is to get her career started and find her footing as an adult. Rebecca has now taken over as President of ZBZ and must take on haunting foes from her past, including Tegan (Charisma Carpenter) and Frannie (Tiffany Dupont), both of whom return to stir up trouble in the CRU Greek system once again.
Dale surprises everyone when he decides he is ready for new college experiences and has a change of heart about the Greek system. Could Dale actually be rushing? If so, which house will he choose?!
Cappie and Rusty try to keep Kappa Tau going strong with their new pledge, Peter Parkes (Devon Werkheiser), son of famous KT alum Lasker Parkes (Jonathan Silverman). Rusty longs to be a leader in Kappa Tau and challenges Cappie for the Presidency. Will Cappie ever grow up and pass the torch on to his little bro? Meanwhile, a mysterious person threatens to wreak havoc upon the KT house, with no indication of giving up until it’s in ruins.
