ABC Family dramedy receives a 10-episode order

A cheer for ABC Family's "Greek"!

The cable network on Friday renewed the dramedy series for a fourth season.

"Greek," which received a 10-episode order, will return with originals later this year. The hourlong show centers on fraternity and sorority life at Cyprus-Rhodes University.

The college dramedy, created by Patrick Sean Smith, is ABC Family's longest-running original series currently on the air. It has been a solid performer for the network since its launch in 2007 and fit successfully into ABC Family's new three-hour original block on Monday.

Its most recent third season posted double-digit ratings gains in most key demos, including 22% among persons 18-34.

ABC Family recently picked up three new series, dramas "Pretty Little Liars" and "Huge" and comedy "Melissa & Joey," while opting not to renew veteran drama "Lincoln Heights" for a fifth season.
