ABC is extending the runs of four of its comedies — two rookies and two veterans — by an episode or two each to help fill out the back half of the season.
In what has become an annual ritual for the network, Black-ish will add two more episodes to its order, for a total of 24 on the season. The ABC Studios series has ended up with 24-episode orders for each of its five seasons, although only 23 aired in 2017-18 after ABC pulled an episode from the schedule.
The additional episodes will help ABC cut down on the number of repeats it airs in the latter part of the season. The Goldbergs and Single Parents have each aired 10 episodes so far this season; Black-ish and The Kids Are Alright, which debuted in mid-October, have aired eight each.
ABC also has Goldbergs spinoff Schooled and Bless This Mess, which it recently picked up from Fox, on tap for midseason.
