Get More: Exclusive, News, Renewals

Mistresses RenewedABC is considering going to second base with Alyssa Milano and her fellow Mistresses.

The network has quietly extended the options on the show’s core cast through the end of September, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The move signals that ABC is seriously considering bringing the frothy summer romp back for a second season.

UPDATE: It’s renewed!

While not a spectacular ratings performer, Mistresses — which stars Milano, Jes Macallan, Rochelle Aytes and Yunjin Kim as a quartet of pals grappling with infidelity, stalkers, reappearing presumed-dead spouses and other juicy soap-opera tropes — has been holding its own on Mondays at 10/9c opposite CBS’ mighty Under the Dome. (It’s certainly faring better than NBC’s Siberia, not to mention last summer’s ABC embarrassment Glass House.)

Thoughts? Are you craving more Mistresses? Weigh in below!

  • I absolutely love this show! I watched it religiously this summer and I simply cannot wait for the next season! BTw – to all who commented about the name and suggested changes – I disagree – The name is what caught my attention in the first place. Totally dumb idea to change it – it will confuse people – especially those of us that already love it!!!

  • Yessss, I am craving more of Mistresses! It has to come back for another season (maybe even more)!! One of my co-workers and I both LOVE this show!! We’re upset that this season has already ended. You have to give it a chance and give more time for people to even know about it. It seems like all the good shows get axed and there’s more stupid reality shows taking their place. I loved What About Brian, Samantha Who, and October Road…, all axed after one season. And, they were all good shows. Please don’t make the same mistake with Mistresses.

  • I like this show. It would be nice to see another season as long as the story line picks up.

    It feels like nothing happens during one episode.

  • Love this adult themed show. I sincerely hope ABC renews because this is the best entertainment on Monday night. What better show to replace Desperate Housewifes. It is pure entertainment and an escape from police and hospital shows.

  • Yes! I find this show to be My New guilty Pleasure! I will be very upset if ABC doesnot renew. To leave us all hanging here. It is better than the Revenge show that has gone of the rails in the last two seasons. Draging everything out!

  • I and others in my family have not missed an episode. When I had to miss a show, I was able to watch it on my Cabel provider’s backup. It has been wonderful, although, I wish the ending did not turn out as it seems to be doing.
