ABC has given “Forever” its back-nine order, bringing its total episode count to 22 for its freshman season.

“Forever” stars Ioan Gruffudd, Judd Hirsch, Alana De La Garza, Lorraine Toussaint, Donnie Keshawarz and Joel David Moore as Lucas.

In Nielsen’s “most current” ratings, “Forever” is averaging a 1.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.6 million viewers overall. It has been a strong performer in DVR playback and has greatly improved a time period where last year ABC struck out three times with “Lucky 7,” “Killer Women” and “Mind Games.”

“Forever” was created by Matt Miller, who executive produces with Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz. The ABC procedural is produced by Warner Bros. Television.

ABC has also given full seasons to “How to Get Away with Murder” and “Black-ish,” and canceled “Manhattan Love Story” and “Selfie.”
