Pair of ABC Comedies Get Full-Season Orders


The ABC comedy series American Housewife and Bless This Mess have been given full-season orders.

The network has ordered six additional episodes of each series.

American Housewife is currently in its fourth season on the network, while Bless This Mess is in its sophomore run.

Bless This Mess has quickly become a fan favorite, due in large part to the expert wit of co-creators Lake Bell and Elizabeth Meriwether, and our incredibly talented and charismatic cast,” said Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment. “This series exquisitely captures a witty and warm look into the close-knit communities of America’s heartland, and we are so excited to deliver more stories from ‘Bucksnort’ to the masses.”

Burke added, “Sarah Dunn created something special with hit comedy American Housewife, and the Otto family continues to entertain on a level that is relatable and hilarious. As Katie Otto, Katy Mixon delivers a welcome comedic relief with her acerbic take on life. These are two of the funniest, sharpest fish-out-of-water comedies on television. We’re proud of their incredible creative teams and look forward to keeping viewers laughing this season.”
