ABC today ordered six additional episodes for Season 4 of American Housewife. The veteran comedy was on an initial 15-episode run, which will now bump up to a total of 21. The order is considered a full season, though it will be the show's shortest to-date.

The half-hour series premiered in 2016 and ended up becoming the network's top-rated new comedy of the season. Since then it has been moved to a few different time slots, where it has remained a solid performer. In its new home on Friday nights, the show is holding its own in the 8:00pm time slot.

American Housewife stars Katy Mixon as an average wife and mother who is bringing up her family in the upper-class town of Westport, Connecticut.
