Exclusive: ABC Extends Mistresses Cast's Options — Is a Season 2 Renewal Next?

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!

  • I would love to have the show come back, they should compare what makes more ratings and also give them more advertising, I really want to finish watching the whole show. The last one I saw was episode 9 and on that day I was looking for the show on abc at 10pm and couldn’t found it anywhere… It really pick up after the first pilot, and things got really interesting, I would love them to come back!

  • I do think Alyssa Milano is overweight but it seems like she is possibly losing some of the weight. Also, in the early opening advertisements they show Alyssa with longer hair & thinne & rhe looks so pretty. However, I do understand that her character is an attorney & she is wearing her hair short. I would like to see her look more like she does in the ads.

  • Love it, but so tired of the Thomas Grey storyline!! Not sure what to do with Dr. Kim then though. She’s fantastic, but this is killing the show for me.

  • Tv just plain sucks nowadays. Shows are usually filled with dumb humor & lame lines & bad acting. Finally there is an interesting program with good acting & it’s going to get canceled? Very disappointing! ABC needs to give it a chance.. It takes awhile for the word to spread! Ive been telling everyone to check it out.. And now it’s not even on!!

    Comment by Ladybug – August 12, 2013 05:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • For real! That’s why I’m even on this site, I was trying to find out if its coming back on or not….

  • All I have to say is I love the show and if you are just going to end up cancelling it, tell me NOW so I can Stop watching NOW. There is nothing more irritating than investing a lot of time into a show only to have the network cut it. That is the Exact reason I no longer watch the CW. Give the show a chance…

    Comment by Roberto – August 12, 2013 06:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Yes please bring on a 2nd episode!!! I’m curious on who Savi’s babies dad is…and I agree Paul and his mistress need there butts kicked!! This is an awesome show I really hope they renew it.

  • The acting in this show is horrible on all counts and it is straying from the original BBC Mistresses which was an AMAZING show. I wouldn’t mind this being cancelled and if you really want to see a good show watch the original BBC Mistresses on Netflix!!!

  • Please keep it on all year. I think it is better than “Housewives”. You have me wanting more. It is one of my guilty pleasures. The title did throw me off in the beginning but I Love this show. I am sick of the Bravo Housewives, can not stand Under The Dome. I need to know what happens next.
