The comedies will now have 21 and 19 episodes respectively
It's good news for American Housewife and Bless This Mess! The fourth season and second season comedies have scored additional episodes, bringing their orders up to 21 and 19 episodes.
American Housewife, which stars Katy Mixon and Diedrich Bader, is set in the wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut where everyone is fit, beautiful and perfect. Except for the Ottos. Katie (played by Mixon) and Greg (Bader) Otto, along with their three children, are far from perfect and beautifully flawed in their own ways.
ABC President Karey Burke issued the following statement: "Sarah Dunn created something special with the hit comedy American Housewife, and the Otto family continues to entertain on a level that is relatable and hilarious. As Katie Otto, Katy Mixon delivers a welcome comedic relief with her acerbic take on life."
The additional order will bring the show to 97 episodes in total. It serves as a solid anchor for ABC's Friday block.
