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 really like this show. Lots of twists and turns. April’s husband needs to be more lively or something. Jason George is very handsome, as well as Melissa’s TV husband. Overall, I think the characters are interesting. Would love to see Mistress come back for a 2nd season.

  • ok. I really hope this show gets renewed, but as a summer show otherwise it would be axed after 2 episodes in a fall or midseason timeslot with the viewing figures its receiving. however, it does have a high international audience as well as those who watch online/ a DVR recording of the show. of course it would be in trouble going up against ‘Under The Dome’. just like pitting MARVEL’S Agents of Shield up against NCIS on Tuesday nights will have the same effect. a predictable soppy drama about the lust and desires of four rather attractive gorgeous women vs. a big budget sci-fi show written by Steven King of course it would lose. but it is a guilty pleasure for a lot of people, myself included. and the fact that its so predictable is why its so good! ABC whatever you do with season 2 of this show, do not split Joss and Alex up, as the storyline of a sweet adorable lesbian couple is one of the main reasons I watch the show. also whoever wrote those hateful comments about Alyssa; she is curvy (and buxom), which imho is an attractive quality in a woman, she is very attractive and has aged very well, so don’t go calling her ugly!

  • These days most shows fail because as fans we want to love every character as well as the storyline, but most dont deliver, this show has put together a wonderful cast & let’s face it, who doesn’t love Alyssa? I consider this my desperate housewives replacement as most fans do, so I really hope they extend and I’m sure it will have the same success!

  • Please renew Mistresses! This show is amazing! I watch every week to see the new twists and turns this show takes you on! I love Alyssa and Yunjin, they are 2 of my favorite Actresses. I would be saddened if the show got canceled and left the amount of storyline and plot that could be covered to dust, plus not to mention the four ladies past which we have yet to fully experience.

  • At 1st I thought the show was great and that it could become a show about hiw a couple could survive cheating, how they could bemade stronger. Instead the show has spit on marriage minamized the damage done with such a batryal after a few the cheater was like thats im done saying im sorry time to move on. The show has made the cheater sexy and the husband pathetic and somehow the bad guy. The truth when a man hits on a married women its not flatering its a insult. Its a insult that sugguest she is the kind of women that would be open to something like that. This show had a chance to be groud breaking and truly provocative, instead its cheap tacky and not even a good story it cries desperate housewive wannabe. Lets not even discuss how you have the psychologist who slept with a married man the victum, or how stupid the dead husband faking his death story is. I quit they lost a viewer demand more. Cancel please restore my faith in tv.Cancel.

  • Yes, renew. I got hooked on it through ABC online. I too want to know who the father of Savi’s baby is. Bring it back in the Fall. Good replacement for Desperate Housewives

  • We love mistresses. Bring it back for a second season, we have to see what happens to these women!!!

  • This is a fantastic show and, like many previous commenters have said, I didn’t expect to like it as much as I do. Yes, the dead-husband-returning plot is a bit much and I found it odd that Savi the attorney didn’t shed any light on whether April is obligated to contact the authorities that he’s officially alive. She would be out of a lot of life insurance money, which she would most likely have to return, right? Anyway, aside from that little detail being ignored, the show is fabulous!!

  • Absolutely LOVE this show! I will be so disappointed if it not renewed! Great cast, and great story line. I have Paul and his stupid mistress but they are expendable lol.
