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!

  • Might sound random but I’m living in China right now per contract and my Chinese friends (who introduced me to the show) and I would wait each week to get this show posted onto youku.com so we could watch it right after it was broadcast back home. They love this show over here too! I hope they don’t cancel it. I personally think the actresses are really too good to cancel the show on them. It’s got to be hard for Kim to take on such a role not in her native language but I am still beyond impressed and hope they write better for her. In fact, the writing of dialogue between the actresses could be made to seem a bit more real, they are all capable of doing more and probably want to as good actresses. Don’t cancel! :)

  • We enjoyed the Mistresses very much. We are seniors and did not like the title. It is really very misleading. Please bring back the show even if you keep the same misleading title. We loved it. Very interesting and exciting. Doesn’t matter what time — we will DVD it.
