Since its series premiere, “FlashForward” has hit the 12 million mark, boosting ABC’s ratings time period 32 percent over last year in its Thursday night time slot. Not to mention that this is the first regular series since “Friends” to beat “Survivor” in the 18-49 demographic.

With the show’s success ABC has ordered an additional 12 episodes, bringing the season one episode total to 25. The announcement was made a few days after ABC picked up “The Middle,” “Modern Family” and “Cougar Town.”

“FlashForward,” which airs on ABC, airs on Thursday nights at 7PM CST. It stars Joseph Fiennes, John Cho, Jack Davenport, Zachary Knighton, Peyton List, Dominic Monaghan, Brian F. O’Byrne, Courtney B. Vance, Sonya Walger, and Christine Woods. It was created by David S. Goyer and Brannon Braga.
