Mistresses Renewed Season 2 ABCThere’s a blip at the end of the flatline.

Adapted from a BBC One series, Mistresses stars Yunjin Kim, Rochelle Aytes, Jes Macallan and Milano as a quartet of pals grappling with infidelity, stalkers, reappearing presumed-dead spouses and other juicy soap-opera tropes.

    Wahoo! Now I can have my drink how I like it….. In my hand!

  11. cindy says:

    I have a hard time understanding how such a trashy show like mistresses gets renewed while a great show like king & maxwell does not. I guess there is no accounting for tastes! oh’ I watched both of them….king & maxwell for the characters and story lines, mistresses, because it was so bad it made me laugh

    • Eric says:

      Mistresses is on ABC and King & Maxwell is on TNT. You are comparing a network show with a cable show. The big networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX) have different standards for their shows than cable networks do. Also, you’re right, they don’t take into account of the quality of a series. That is not what matters. What matter is whether or not it performs like it is supposed to. Clearly King & Maxwell wasn’t performing like it should have. If it was, it would still be on the air.

      By the way, Mistresses isn’t really trashy. You said you watched both. So if you did, you’d realize that. Is it up to par with some of the best on TV? No, but it’s not supposed to be. It is a glorified soap. It knows what type of show it is and it plays it very, very well. Just my opinion, though.

    • Luther says:

      they are not comparable in any way. you may as well be saying, why is sponge bob renewed when army wives was cancelled.

    • AJ says:

      Apples & oranges. In other words, can’t compare. In my opinion, King & Maxwell was canceled for 1 reason: it didn’t hold enough of the audience of its lead in Major Crimes. And then the reason I would cancel it: Did we need another Bones/Castle? Mistresses, on the other hand, was campy fun. Which one would I watch when I got home from work on Tuesday? Without a doubt, Mistresses. Was it Emmy worthy drama? Heck no. Though was K&M? NO WAY. I watched 4 episodes of K&M and was bored silly. Mistresses kept me engaged.

    • lou says:

      Mistresses is not trashy!

    • Adamesha says:

      I disagree with u and think that u r a hater becuz mistresses is a great show and just becuz u dont like it doesnt mean u have to go and talk negative about so do urself a favor and go screw yourself

    • name required says:

      Give it up Cindy!!! ur outnumbered! Why would u compare one show to the other in the first place! Suck it up ur show got cancelled we’ve all been there. But don’t dis our show just because urs got cancelled. They have nothing to do with one another!

  12. Chablis says:

    K&M is TNT and Mistresses is ABC
    I am glad. It’s nice Summer viewing coupled with the Bachelorette.

  13. Babygate says:

    Wow. I’m surprised. It really wasn’t great. I’m happy though. I really want to see Savi have her baby and be happy with Harry. But the showrunners have to do a lot of damage control because this went south really fast. Karen needs a reboot. Kim was one of my faves in Lost but as Karen her performance falls very flat. It’s neither convincing nor compelling. And the affair with her ex’s kid was disturbing at many levels. Joss needs to stay away from women in any romantic sense because that ‘experience’ was Alex was all kinds of weird. They had like zero chemistry. None. Nada. And she’s my favorite character. Also love April and I hope she’s kicked her ex to the curb for good this time. That’s another storyline that went south really quick too. Anyways, I’m glad. But I hope it’s not up against Under the Dome again.

  14. sam says:

    I want a drink. IN MY HAND!!!

  15. Ram510 says:

  30. LaLa says:


  31. Selina Kyle says:


    Hopefully they make “Come and Get It” the official theme song for Season Two. :)

  32. JP says:

    Yay!! ABC please don’t kill Elizabeth Grey. She has the best one liners and every show need a great villainous. The writing is only as good as the actor that plays it and Penelope ann Miller is a great actress! Maybe she can run the law Firm her late husband owned and stir up trouble for the rest of the gang! I love this show!! And Harry too! yummy!!

    • Burke says:

      I love the idea having the evil Elizabeth run her ex’s law firm!!!
      Please keep her stirring up trouble, it keeps us watching!
      Love Penelope Ann miller in this role!!!!! Can’t wait for season two!!!!

  33. Cindy says:

    Beautiful….great news!!! Love this show.. Karen does need to find herself some intelligence while awaiting new season. Glad Harry came to his senses!!! Wonderful news.

  34. SK says:

    YES!! Great news!!

  35. sarah says:

    Such great news! Can not wait for next summer Mistresses and Rookie Blue!

  36. Frankie says:

    Omg great news! I have been waiting for this!

  37. G says:

    Very good news. I was hoping that this would be the decision.

  38. tiff says:

  40. Susie Edick says:

    So glad this show is coming back. Definitely filled the desperate housewives gap….love it.

  41. Sharon Fairbanks says:

    So glad this show is coming back! But I have to wait until summer?
    Better to be a mid season replacement!

  42. Chiska says:

    Great! Can the season 2 be earlier?

  43. shannon says:

    My mom and I really really loved mistresses! Cant wait to see s2

  44. Trese says:

    Thank You ABC. Great Decision! I hope that they keep Savi & Dom together. Savi and Dom have way more chemistry then she and Harry, who is way to stuffy! If not they should throw April & Dom together to make Savi Jealous!

  45. Mich says:

    Love love love this show..cant believe i have to wait a year to see what happens to Savvy :(

  46. name drequired says:

    OMG I was frantic when I could not find it again! I even went to the ABC sight to complain but apparently they are not interested in my humble opinion.

  47. Anna says:

    I loved this show can’t wait to see what happen next.

  48. Bonnie says:
