“Melissa & Joey” will be wrapping production on its fourth and final season this week, Variety has confirmed.
The comedy, which has been ABC Family’s highest-rated sitcom, will conclude its storyline at the end of the fourth season, to air later this summer.
“We are proud of the milestones ‘Melissa & Joey’ has achieved, being the network’s first sitcom to reach 100 episodes and the network’s first comedy to win a People’s Choice Award,” said Karey Burke, exec VP, programming and development. “Now that the kids are grown and Mel and Joe have married and are looking towards starting a family, it seemed like a natural time to bring the series to a close. We are grateful to Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence, and the whole cast and crew, who worked so hard on this successful show.”
The 100th episode of “Melissa & Joey” will air as the midseason finale on March 18.
