ABC orders up extra episodes of hits Blackish, The Goldbergs

abc wednesday comedies goldbergs
ABC is on a roll with its primetime Wednesday night lineup, and is ordering up a host of extra episodes for some of the most popular shows to dish out to viewers. Sitcoms The Middle, The Goldbergs, and Black-ish have already gotten orders for two extra episodes this season, and Modern Family is likely to follow, reports Deadline.

Tuesday nights haven’t been left out either, as Fresh off the Boat has also been given an expanded, 24-episode season two order. The sitcom premiered last midseason, and was originally given just 13 episodes for the second season. However, ABC execs obviously saw something they liked in the numbers, first ordering an additional nine episodes, and then adding on two more.

Both The Middle and Modern Family have had full, 24-episode seasons since they began. In fact, this marks the second year in a row that ABC is offering 24 episodes for all four of its Wednesday comedies that make up the primetime evening hours.

Kicking off the primetime evening hours, The Middle (8 p.m., 7 p.m. CT) looks at the day-to-day lives of a typical working-class family in Indiana. It stars Patricia Heaton, best known for her time on Everybody Loves Raymond. Created by writers who worked on hit shows like Roseanne and Murphy Brown, the show is in its seventh season.

Staring former Curb Your Enthusiasm actor Jeff Garlin, The Goldbergs (8:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m. CT) is loosely based on producer Adam F. Goldberg’s childhood. Now in its third season, it is set in the ‘80s following a Pennsylvania family’s lives.

Modern Family premiered in 2009, and is currently in its seventh season. The single-camera comedy has been a perennial Emmy nominee, winning for Outstanding Comedy Series five years in a row, and has garnered six acting awards for members of the ensemble cast. It follows the lives of a 21st century family and their offspring in the now-standard documentary comedy style.

Finally, Black-ish (9:30 p.m., 8: 30 CT) stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross as an upper-middle-class African-American family. Anderson was nominated for an Emmy this year for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, though he lost to Transparent’s Jeffrey Tambor.
