Baby Daddy, created by Dan Berendsen (Sabrina, the Teenage Witch), will be back for a sixth season. Freeform made the announcement of the renewal on June 27, 2016, just a few weeks after the series’ fifth season returned to primetime on Wednesdays at 8:30pm ET/PT. Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Derek Theler, Tahj Mowry, with Melissa Peterman and Chelsea Kane star in the multi-camera comedy which will pass the 100th episode milestone during its sixth season.
Announcing the renewal, Karey Burke, executive vice president, Programming and Development, Freeform, stated, “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.”
The Plot: Per 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.
