“Fans will be clamoring for season 4 and to know what happens with Daphne and Bay after the season 3 finale next week,” ABC Family president Tom Ascheim said in a statement.
This summer “Switched at Birth” ranked as the No. 1 series on basic cable for its time period in the key female demographic.
Vanessa Marano and Katie Leclerc play teenagers Bay and Daphne, who learn that they were accidentally switched at birth in the hospital. Upon discovery, the girls and their families decide to live together and tackle the socioeconomic and familial differences in their household and at school.
Since its premiere, the ABC Family show has racked up several awards, including a Peabody Award and Television Critics Assn. Award.
The “Switched at Birth” season three finale will air Monday.
