ABC Family has renewed Switched at Birth for a third season and ordered more episodes of The Fosters and Twisted, the network announced today. SaB had a 30-episode first season and is in the middle of a twenty-episode second, which means there's a tremendous amount of SaB, given that the show is relatively new. No word yet on how many episodes the first-year shows have been renewed for, but based on last night's episode of The Fosters, one hopes it's a lot. Oy, that show is so lovely.
