Freeform has renewed their multi-camera comedy series Baby Daddy for a sixth season, TVWise has learned.
While no formal episode order has been set, the network said the pick-up meant that by the end of season six more than 100 episodes will have been produced.
Baby Daddy kicked off the back-half of its fifth season earlier this month to time-period winning ratings and has grown in subsequent weeks to near 1-year ratings highs in key target demographics. The series currently ranks as Freeform’s highest rated original comedy series.
“The lines between family and friends are so wonderfully crossed in ‘Baby Daddy”, Freeform’s Executive Vice-President of Programming & Development Karey Burke said in a statement announcing the renewal. “You can always count on the Wheeler clan for a big laugh along with heartfelt moments”.
Baby Daddy stars Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Derek Theler, Tahj Mowry, Melissa Peterman and Chelsea Kane. Dan Berendsen is the creator and executive producer. In season six, Ben will remain on his quest to find the “girl of his dreams” and Emma’s new mom while Danny and Riley figure out their future.
Freeform has been busy of late. In addition to renewing Baby Daddy, the network also recently announced new series Famous In Love, Marvel’s Cloak And Dagger and The Bachelor spin-off Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After. They are also deep in development on a spin-off of Young & Hungry and have ordered an hour-long pilot titled Issues, inspired by the the life of Cosmo editor Joanna Coles.
