Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 (2012–2013)
FAQAdd to FAQ
It is unknown why ABC didn't air the episodes in their actual order. The remaining six episodes of season one aired as part of season two bringing the total to 19 episodes for the second season. ABC elected to air these episodes out of order, interspersing first and second season episodes without regard to continuity. As a result, some multi-episode plot arcs (particularly James' appearance on Dancing With The Stars and June's travails at a new job outside the coffee shop) are almost incomprehensibly jumbled in the original broadcast order.
The correct order, as confirmed by James Van der Beek in his Facebook account, is stated below, after a message from Van der Beek himself:
"For anyone looking to enjoy the demented, very wrong Don't Trust the B in Apt 23 in the actual right order, I've just posted the order in which they were written, produced, and meant to air - straight from the desk of Nahnatchka Khan. Hulu, iTunes and ABC.com all have them in the random order in which they were aired."
