‘Melissa & Joey’ canceled by ABC Family
After four seasons, the sitcom Melissa & Joey has been canceled by ABC Family.
The show was a record-setting one for the network, especially in the sitcom realm. ABC Family isn’t too good at those – only the dramas like Pretty Little Liars & The Fosters.
ABC Family executive Karey Burke said in a statement:
We are proud of the milestones Melissa & Joey has achieved, being the network’s first sitcom to reach 100 episodes and the network’s first comedy to win a People’s Choice Award. Now that the kids are grown and Mel and Joe have married and are looking toward starting a family, it seemed like a natural time to bring the series to a close. We are grateful to Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence, and the whole cast and crew who worked so hard on this successful show
The show, which premiered in 2010 notably brought childhood stars Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence to the small screen .
