"'Kyle has thrilled us from its premiere night - we couldn't be happier to bring it back for a second season. Matt Dallas is truly a breakout star for us, and Kyle XY is truly a defining show. It was great to see Kyle succeed not just on cable, but on ABC, on iTunes, and on our broadband player."

KYLE XY rates as ABC Family�s most-watched original series in the history of the network in Total Viewers (2.08 million), Adults 18-34 (336,000) and Adults 18-49 (793,000).

"We are incredibly proud of the production values on this series and thankful for the strong marketing support from ABC Family. We look forward to continuing the success with "Three Moons Over Milford."

As Kyle begins to show signs of brilliance, solving the mystery of his origin and potential abilities becomes the family�s mission.
