ABC Family’s new comedy Melissa & Joey has been renewed for a second season.  The announcement was made on July 11, 2011 and stated that 18 new episodes will air during 2012.  The show stars Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina the Teenage Witch) as Mel, a local politician who is raising her niece and nephew and Joey (Gimme a Break, Blossom) as Joe, a male live-in nanny.  The show quickly became ABC Family’s top series premiere and highest comedy of all time in total viewers.

ABC Family president Michael Riley released a statement regarding the show’s second season, “Melissa and Joey have proven to be a comedic powerhouse, with wonderful chemistry that has resonated with viewers in the tradition of great television pairings.  As our focus on comedy continues to develop, we’re delighted to see it return next year as an integral part of the network’s expanding slate of original series.”

Those who’ve missed some of season 1 may catch up on the show with full episodes available online at ABC Family.  Melissa & Joey airs on Wednesdays at 8:00 pm, ET/7:00 pm, CT on ABC.
