ABC Family announced today that freshman comedy Melissa & Joey has been renewed for a second season. The series premiered last August and is still currently airing new Season 1 episodes due to an eight month break it took at its midway point.

Melissa & Joey has been considered a success thus far, debuting as the Number 1 comedy ever on the network in total viewers and key demographics. The show's first season is set to wrap up in the Fall, with Season 2 targeted for sometime in 2012.
