ABC Family renews ‘Kyle XY’

Hit drama coming back for third season

ABC Family has picked up a third season of hit drama “Kyle XY.”

Skein, from exec producers Chris Bender and JC Spink of Benderspink, along with Eric Tuchman and David Himelfarb, has been a solid performer for the net, which labels the show its signature skein.

During its sophomore season, “Kyle XY” saw its ratings grow 8% among adults 18-34. Among female teens, it finished second among all basic cable shows in its timeslot.

Production start date for season three has yet to be locked in. Skein is still in production on the second half of its second-season order.

“Kyle XY” stars Matt Dallas in the titular role. Cast includes Marguerite MacIntrye, Bruce Thomas, April Matson, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Chris Olvero, Kirsten Prout and Jaimie Alexander.

Skein, from ABC Studios, was created by Eric Bress and J. Mackeye Gruber. Julie Plec is supervising producer, while Charlie Gogolak is a producer.
