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!

RELATED | Mistresses Recap: Dead Man Stalking

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!

  • This show is the definition of a guilty pleasure. I hate that I even started watching it, and I hate that I like it so much. But I can’t get enough of it!

  • I like the show I just cant stand the blond girl she has no story line “oh her sleeping with everyone or trying to bang her boss”. The problem with this show is in the very first episode they threw everything out there in the u.k. version everything was done in 3 seasons.. I just hope they get rid of the blond girl and get someone else

  • I cane across this show on Hulu and I definitely am hooked to this show. I screamed when he dead husband showed up at the door. And screamed more that there were no more episodes. Please bring on season 2.

  • YES YES YES!!!! ABC must renew Mistresses!! It has only been getting better and juicier with every episode and the stories need to continue. All the actresses and actors have done an amazing job and should be rewarded with a second season.

    • My God! I never thought I would get hooked onto this show, but I did. This last episode was awesome and the previews for next week look great. I can’t wait and I hope ABC renews and keeps this a summer treat.

  • The ladies I work with and I love this show and love to talk about it. Please extend it, I am getting to a point where I don’t want to start watching a new show cause if I get into it there is a good chance that it will get cancelled. Please please please let there be a season 2!!!!!

  • A second summer would be good, but not the regular season. Like the actors, but the plots except for Savi/Harry/Dom are awfully silly, which is the point of summer shows

  • I love this show and think it deserves to last.. So please keep it around and let it do it’s work.. It’s fun and most entertaining thing on tv recently.. It’s a lot
    Of fun and reminds me of desperate housewives.. Also love Alyssa Milano and think she deserves to have this show run.. Only thing is I don’t wanna wait until next summer to see the second season

    • Would be really silly to leave a continuation to next summer and it should run over the winter also.

      Comment by Barbara – August 2, 2013 02:32 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Yes I love the show it keeps me on the edge of my seat and I have seen real life Savi in my daily life bring it back. All of the actresses are amazing. Bring on season 2

  • I really liked this show till the dead husband came back, and keeps coming back!!!! Stop it already!!!
    If it keeps up with there outlandish story lines its going to turn off people just like desperate housewives did when it ended. The name mistresses is good at first, but, how many of these woman can keep sleeping with other peoples husbands to live up to the name for a long term show.. Not the best choice, but definately an eye catcher! They need to slow it down a little and have one or two actors go through serious drama at a time, or the show will burn out quickly.

    All and all i think its pretty good, and has left me hanging at the end and wanting to watch next week. I like Alissa Milano’s role the best so far, and Dr Kim is the most stupid doctor I have ever seen getting involved with this whole family and not staying away from them like Savy told her to, but then again..most doctors are like that. No comon sense!

    Comment by Angel – July 31, 2013 10:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree- Dr. Kim is the only weak character. I don’t buy it, but the rest of the cast is fantastic!

  • Get rid of this show and that old hag Alyssa Milano…when will she disappear for good???? Can’t stand that bitch.

    Comment by The_One_Critic – August 2, 2013 01:16 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • She filmed this right after giving birth, so she was.a little heavier. She is a hot actress, as is the rest of the cast.

      Comment by M smith – August 2, 2013 09:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • That’s just rude. Even if you dont like her you don’t have to call her names..Be a little classier than that.

      Comment by Samantha – August 4, 2013 03:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • If you don’t like her then don’t watch the show.

  • Love this show – agree that the name ‘Mistresses’ isn’t the best. I actually wish it was a fall/winter show, either way will watch it!
