Burbank, CA (February 27, 2015) – ABC Family today announced the network has green-lit a fifth season of its hit original comedy series “Baby Daddy.” The order came just as production has wrapped on the series’ fourth season. “Baby Daddy” is currently airing all-new episodes Wednesday nights at 8:30PM, and the Season 4 finale will air on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at 8:30PM ET/PT on ABC Family.
“Comedy is an important part of ABC Family’s make-up,” said Karey Burke, Executive Vice President, Programming & Development. “We’re excited to see where Dan (Berendsen, Creator/Executive Producer) takes these lovable characters and look forward to more great comedy from the cast.”

“Baby Daddy” follows five adults at various stages of growing up. Ben (Bilodeau) was living the bachelor life in New York City with his buddy Tucker (Mowry) and his brother, Danny (Theler), a professional hockey player, until his life was turned upside down when a baby girl was left on the doorstep by one of Ben’s one-night stands. Ben is now raising Baby Emma (Kayleigh Harris & Sura Harris) with help from Tucker, Danny, his mother, Bonnie (Peterman), and his childhood friend Riley, (Kane) who’s been in love with Ben forever. Now that Emma is older, everyone must cope with the many challenges of parenting a one-year-old who is walking and talking. Together the five of them give Emma a unique but loving family filled with a lot of laughter and plenty of craziness. The series stars Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Derek Theler, Tahj Mowry, with Melissa Peterman and Chelsea Kane. “Baby Daddy” is created and executive-produced by Dan Berendsen (“The Nine Lives of Chloe King,” “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch,” “Hannah Montana: The Movie”).
