TV Quick Hits: ‘Baby Daddy’ renewed; ‘Hap and Leonard’ coming back; ‘American Gothic’ casting news

Freeform -Baby Daddy” back for more – For those of you who love “Baby Daddy,” rest assured that you’ll be getting at least one more season. The Freeform comedy has been renewed for a sixth season, as confirmed today by Karey Burke, the network’s executive vice president of programming and development:

“The lines between family and friends are so wonderfully crossed in ‘Baby Daddy.’ You can always count on the Wheeler clan for a big laugh along with heartfelt moments.”

This renewal will bring the show past its 100th episode threshold, which is rarified air for many cable shows out there. It’s tough to have a show be successful enough to last this long, and “Baby Daddy” has pulled if off by consistently being creative and appealing to its base.

Hap and Leonard” coming back – We also have some other renewal news on “Hap and Leonard,” which per star James Purefoy, is also coming back for a second season on Sundance. Rejoice to that!

American Gothic” casting scoop – Per TVLine, Bethany Joy Lenz of “One Tree Hill” / “Dexter” fame is going to recur on the CBS summer show in the role of April, a nurse at a rehab clinic who develops a tight bond with at least one of the main characters. We suppose that more than anything one of the real indicators from this casting scoop is that someone is going to be heading to rehab by the end of the season, so that should get your radar going just as much as anything.

The second episode of this show will air a little later this week; let’s see if there turns out to be any sort of ratings uptick.
