The network renewed Rizzoli & Isles, Major Crimes and Perception for fifth, third and third seasons respectively, the cabler announced Thursday.
Each series received 15-episode runs that will bow in Summer 2014.
Rizzoli‘s current season has performed well in the ratings: When you factor in Live+7 DVR playback, the series is averaging 8.4 million viewers, 2.3 million of which are in the advertiser-attractive 18-49 demo.
Jane and Maura will take break after Sept. 10 and return in early 2014.
Meanwhile, Closer offshoot Major Crimes will wrap Aug. 19 and finish up its second season with a run of episodes beginning in November. The Eric McCormack-starring Perception, which goes on hiatus after Aug. 27, will unspool the rest of its second season after the new year.
The trio of crime dramas joins Falling Skies, which received a fourth season renewal in July.
Birth, which is nearing the end of its second season, is “like no other show on television and we are so proud to have it as part of our family,” Kate Juergens, executive VP of original programming and development at ABC Family, said in a statement. “Adding additional seasons and episodes of our returning series spotlights how well our programming resonates with our audience.”
The network has also ordered additional episodes of its freshman summer series The Fosters and Twisted.
The renewal/extensions come a week after the cabler cancelled Amy Sherman-Palladino’s ballet-themed dramedy Bunheads.
Switched at Birth‘s third season is set to launch in January 2014. The drama currently airs Mondays at 8/7c.
HBO is thirsty for more True Blood: The cabler has renewed the vampire drama for a seventh season, to launch in Summer 2014.
Executive producer Brian Buckner, who last March replaced Mark Hudis as showrunner, will remain in that role for Season 7.
True Blood, which is midway through its sixth season, “remains a signature show for HBO, and a true phenomenon with our viewers,” said HBO programming prez Michael Lombardo in a statement. “Thanks to Brian and his talented team, the show continues to be a thrill ride like nothing else on TV.”
HBO declined to say how many episodes Season 7 will consist of, but sources put the number once again at 10.
The show’s Season 6 premiere last month drew 4.5 million viewers, off 14 percent from Season 5′s opener.
