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 did not hold much hope for this show, but how I was pleasantly surprised with the storylines and the acting skills. Bring the show back for a 2nd season, because I think the show has a lot of potential if the writing continues to be as good as it has been so far.

  • I make time for this show. I will be so sad if it is canceled. It reminds me of desperate housewives and I watched every season of that. Love all the twists and relationships between the friends. Very entertaining !! Renew!

  • Definitely Need some more…. I really like this show BUT now with the days of DVR I’m not sure how networks even compete anymore, I never have to pick…. I just DVR it or watch it on ‘on demand’……
    I wish a show I like on CBS couldn’t boot a show I also like on ABC (or any network)

  • Mistresses is the best show on Primetime television! I just had to show my support. Mistresses and Devious Maids are my guilty pleasures.

  • Please bring Mistresses back…..I’m hooked and lost now on Monday nights !

  • I LOVE Mistresses and would love to see it continue! My hubby watches Under The Dome and doesn’t like if I go to the other room so I watch on Hulu the next day while he’s at work. It’s a great show with so many twists and turns and it needs to remain. It’s much more interesting to me than some of those “reality” shows that every station is flooded with.

  • DO NOT CANCEL!! First show in years that is sinfully delish! It has everything I love in a show. Always leaves me wanting more :)

  • Okay I can’t stand these women and Alyssa Milano is of course a terrible actress, but they can’t just leave us on a cliff hanger like that! At least not till I know who the baby daddy is!?!?! Make another season and please don’t make me wait till summer 2014!!

I love the show I think the actresses do an amazing job!! Love love this show and I would be devastated if it gets canceled!! It’s so nice to have a new good tv show instead of another reality show if I wanted reality I wouldn’t watch TV and I honestly get enough reality in my own life!!! Please please don’t cancel the show!!!!!

  • I really hope it gets renewed !! i love the mistresses!! I hate the fact that it is even possible that it might get canceled I am so addicted and want to see how it all plays out!! I really hate how a new show comes on and I get hooked and bam after the first season it gets canceled and leaves the viewers hanging almost makes me not even want to watch new shows anymore!!!!!!!
