Looks like the freshman drama series will be sticking around a bit longer. ABC has ordered nine additional episodes of the hit series Forever, bringing it to a full 22-episode season.
The supernatural procedural joins fellow ABC shows Black-ish and How to Get Away with Murder with its full-season order. Sadly, Selfie didn’t make the list as it was officially canceled as of this morning and joins Manhattan Love Story in the land of shows that were permanently axed.
Forever was ABC’s top rated Tuesday 10 p.m. fall series debut in 4 years among Adults 18-49 and retained 100% of its Monday preview when it premiered back in September.
The ABC drama centers around Dr. Henry Morgan, a medical examiner played by Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four, Ringer), who just happens to be immortal, and works alongside Detective Jo Martinez, played by Alana De La Garza (Do No Harm, CSI: Miami, Law & Order) with Judd Hirsch as Abe, Henry’s best and only friend.
Matt Miller serves as creator/executive producer along with Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz as executive producers for Warner Bros. Television. The series also co-stars Lorraine Toussaint, Donnie Keshawarz and Joel David Moore.
Forever airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
