Switched at Birth: Season Two for ABC Family TV Series

switched at birth season two renewalABC Family has renewed Switched at Birth for a second season, even before the entire first season has aired.

Switched at Birth revolves around two families who discover that two daughters have been switched as infants and have been living in the wrong households. The large cast of this ABC Family series includes Vanessa Marano, Daphne Vasquez, Lea Thompson, D. W. Moffett, Lucas Grabeel, Constance Marie, Ivonne Coll, Sean Berdy, and Marlee Matlin.

The TV series debuted in June 2011 to a very healthy 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.3 million total viewers. The numbers declined but they were apparently strong enough for ABC Family to add a whopping 22 episodes to the first season order, bringing the total to 32 installments.

The 22 episodes that have aired to date have averaged a 0.9 demo rating with 2.25 million total viewers. The remaining episodes are scheduled to start airing on September 3rd. In addition, Hyperion will release a Switched at Birth book, a memoir authored by character Kathryn Kennish (Lea Thompson). It’ll be available online on August 28th.

There’s no word on how many episodes ABC Family has ordered for season two or when they’re expected to bow.

What do you think? Are you glad to hear that Switched at Birth has been renewed for a second season? Will you be watching next month? Do you plan to check out the book?

    Switched at Birth is such an inspirational tv series. It covers issues that arn’t seen on everyday tv and its teaching the world about a whole other culture that it sometimes forgets about. I think that it would be ABC’s worst decision ever to cancel Switched at Birth. KEEP THE SHOW ALIVE!!!!!

    I loved this series. I watched all of season 1 and watched the first few episodes of season 2. Then I had to work night shift at work on the night it came on so I couldn’t watch it anymore. I hated this! I really wish they’d get it on Netflix or something. I’d like to watch season 2 before season 3 comes out.

    I have been watching this show since it first aired and bought the first season. I am very excited to hear that it was picked up for a second season. I would love to see this show continue on. There is so much more of the story to tell. ABC Family really hit it when they found this show. I will be watching when they continue on with the second season.
