Reality Series ‘Monica the Medium’ Gets Season 2 on ABC Family

ABC Family has given a second season to “Monica the Medium,” its reality series about a college student who also happens to have the ability to talk to dead people.

The series stars Penn State student Monica Ten-Kate. It is exec produced by Dave Caplan’s Trooper Entertainment in association with Lionsgate TV. Malachi McGlone also exec produces. The first season’s finale airs Tuesday and follows Ten-Kate as she oversees a group reading with mothers who have lost their children.

“Together with our marvelous partners at ABC Family, we remain fascinated, charmed and proud of Monica, her friends and family as they continue to reveal both the everyday and the extraordinary moments of their lives with audiences,” said Jennifer O’Connell, exec v.p. of alternative programming, Lionsgate Television. “As Lionsgate continues to build its presence in unscripted programming, this is one of the shows leading the way.”

Adds Karey Burke, exec v.p. of programming and development for ABC Family, “Monica has changed lives for the better and given comfort and closure to family members while exploring her unique ability. She connects as well with our audience as she does with Spirit.”

Monica the Medium” premiered in July and signaled another example of how the channel — soon to be changing its name to Freeform — was extending its reach from teenagers to include young adults.

ABC Family recently made some other changes to its programming schedule: Cancelling cancer-themed drama “Chasing Life” and renewing fan favorite “Switched at Birth.” The channel’s stalwart “Pretty Little Liars” will return in January and will feature a five-year time jump for the characters who were formerly perpetually stuck in high school.
