ABC is ordering more Extreme Weight Loss.

In addition to picking up the reality show for a 13-episode fifth season, the network has also ordered three specials.

Since the show follows a unique 365-day production schedule, renewals for Extreme Weight Loss have to come early.

The Eyeworks USA production will also follow three different couples for a special run of Extreme Weight Loss: Love Can’t Weight, which will follow trainer Chris Powell and wife Heidi as they couch real-life couples trying to get in shape before their respective weddings. Those episodes will air next summer.

Extreme Weight Loss remains a steady performer for ABC. The series is enjoying its strongest cycle in two seasons, ranking behind America's Got Talent in its two-hour Tuesday time slot.
