ABC’s hit fall series mixed-ish and Stumptown have been given full-season orders, while The Rookie received a spring season pickup, Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment, announced today.

“This fall, ‘Stumptown’ has delivered a rich, inventive and fun thrill ride each week with a stellar cast that features one of the most fearless female characters at the center; ‘mixed-ish’ has established itself as one of the sharpest, funniest and most original new comedies of the season; and ‘The Rookie’ has continued to bring compelling storytelling and powerful performances to its passionate and loyal fan base,” said Burke.

“Thanks to the brilliant creative teams behind these series, along with the phenomenal casts and crews, for delivering three incredibly entertaining and distinctive shows. We’re so proud of this great crop of shows that are all off to strong starts this fall, and we can’t wait to bring more fantastic episodes to our schedule this season.”

On the next episode of mixed-ish, the popular girls at school ask Rainbow to join their group Halloween costume as Tootie from The Facts of Life.
