ABC has picked up freshman comedy Cristela for a full season, TVGuide.com has learned.
The network ordered nine additional episodes of the Friday night sitcom, bringing Cristela's first season to 22 episodes.
Cristela is smashing barriers both on and off screen. The sitcom, loosely based on Cristela Alonzo 's life and stand-up routine, stars the comedian as a young woman living with her chaotic family while striving to become a lawyer. The multi-camera sitcom has earned positive attention from critics, particularly thanks to its honest portrayal of an extended Mexican-American family all living under one roof in Dallas. Alonzo, who co-created the show with fellow executive producer Kevin Hench, explains why you should get to know Cristela.
