Update 3: As expected, ABC has renewed 'Don't Trust the B----- in Apt. 23' for a second season.

Update 2: and for those who need ABC confirmation that 'Pan Am,' 'Missing' and 'The River' are canceled, you have it.

Update: GCB has been canceled.

'Scandal' has been renewed by ABC for a second season according to creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes and ABC has confirmed officially.

No word on 'Private Practice' (even Shonda is still waiting as of this writing)  'GCB,'  or 'Body of Proof' yet.

ABC has also picked up several new shows.

    @ Michael, sorry dude, I can brag, I have that right, besides the shows I watch got renewed, except Missing, but honestly how long can Michael go missing, from season to season.

  • Tommy M.

    Malibu Country sounds like the perfect companion for Last Man Standing.

    ABC’s scheduling will be interesting with these renewals plus the new shows

  • forg

    Body of Proof is just a semi-surprise renewal. The biggest shocker in TBTN history would still be Dollhouse lol

    Boo ABC re – GCB:( SHM…

    GCB is a GREAT show, ABC what the hell is wrong with you people? You continually keep crap on, (B in apt 23 for example)and cancel a truly smart, funny and great show!! Try a different time slot perhaps! GOD, I hope if you idiots Don’t change your minds, that another intelligent network picks up this awesome show!!

    I’m sad about GCB, but I can’t say I’m terribly surprised. Its ratings were always borderline. Figures I decide to like two shows (the other was The Finder) right around the time they get canceled.

  • Taggg

    WHAT????? how could they cancel GCB??? funniest new show and amazing cast! So disappointed in the network for not renewing them!!! I’m honestly angry and saddened by this news!

  • Tony

    I loved GCB and Missing – they never gave them a chance

  • Justin121

    I’m indifferent towards most of the renewals and cancellations.

    I wish I could find the post where I said ABC better renewe most of their dramas.

    2- Grey’s, Once, Castle, Revenge, Scanda, Practice, Proof

    They did.

    I wish GCB was renewed.

  • Karen C

    How can you say that ABC didn’t give GCB a chance? They had 10 episodes to prove themselves and they didn’t. That’s alot more than other shows have gotten. GCB was a failure.

    ‘Don’t Trust the B in Apt 23′ will get at least a 25 Episodes order (I think 27 is also possible). ABC always gives a long second Season for its Shows (‘Grey’s Anatomy’ got a 27 Episodes Second Season).

  • Craig

    So ABC cancels brothers and sisters, replaces it with pan am, only to cancel pan am….good job ABC.Bring back Georgette and sisters.

    Yea for Scandal. Big Fan of this show. Olivia Pope & crew rock!

  • ender650

    I’m glad Don’t Trust The B- in Apt 23 was renewed for another season since it was one of only three shows that I watched on ABC this past season.

  • AC75

    Don’t Trust The B is worth a renewal but I sorta wish it was just Kristen Ritter and James Van-whatever his name is. June is a bit too annoying and uptight.

    Scandal is horrific.

  • Kimberley

    GCB is awesome! What the heck!

  • Rob R

    GCB had promise, but the writing just wasn’t there. I kept wanting it to be better given the great performers. GCB made me appreciate how special Desperate Housewives has been all these years.

    Bring Back Missing !! renew it ! ABC

  • reader

    Really loved Pan Am & miss it already. Some cable network, please make a deal with someone in Europe, & with Sony, the producer, & bring back this dream bird !
