The Season 6 pickup comes on the heels of strong ratings for the back-half of its fifth season which premiered June 1, growing week-to-week to near one-year ratings highs in key target demos.
“The lines between family and friends are so wonderfully crossed in ‘Baby Daddy.’ You can always count on the Wheeler clan for a big laugh along with heartfelt moments,” said Karey Burke, executive vice president, Programming and Development, Freeform.
In season six, Ben will remain on his quest to find the “girl of his dreams” and Emma’s new mom while Danny and Riley figure out their future. Baby Daddy follows Ben (Jean-Luc Bilodeau), a young man in New York City living a bachelor’s life with his buddy, Tucker (Tahj Mowry), and his brother, Danny (Derek Theler), a professional hockey player. Their lives are turned upside down when they came home one day to find a baby girl left on the doorstep by an ex-girlfriend of Ben’s. Ben and his close-knit family and friends, including his overbearing mom Bonnie (Melissa Peterman) and close friend Riley (Chelsea Kane) band together to raise baby Emma together, navigating lives and loves with a kid in tow.
Baby Daddy is created and executive-produced by Dan Berendsen (The Nine Lives of Chloe King, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, Hannah Montana: The Movie).
