'Melissa & Joey' canceled
After four seasons and more than 100 episodes, ABC Family’s Melissa & Joey is going to come to a close.
EW has confirmed Melissa & Joey will cease production this week. “We are proud of the milestones Melissa & Joey has achieved, being the network’s first sitcom to reach 100 episodes and the network’s first comedy to win a People’s Choice Award,” said ABC Family programming executive Karey Burke. “Now that the kids are grown and Mel and Joe have married and are looking towards starting a family, it seemed like a natural time to bring the series to a close. We are grateful to Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence, and the whole cast and crew who worked so hard on this successful show.”
Hart broke the news on her Instagram account. Melissa & Joey was once ABC Family’s top-rated sitcom. The 100th episode will air as the mid-season finale on March 18th and then the show will reurn in the summer for its final run of episodes.
