Imposters Renewed

Imposters Renewed for Season 2

This is not a con: Bravo has renewed Imposters for Season 2.

Co-creator Paul Adelstein surprised the cast with the announcement during a For Your Consideration Emmy event on Monday night in Los Angeles.

The con-artist drama stars Inbar Lavi (Prison Break) as Maddie, a beautiful grifter who is pursued by her three most recently duped spouses (Suburgatory‘s Parker Young, Home Fires‘ Rob Heaps and Marianne Rendón). The ensemble also features Brian Benben (Private Practice) as Maddie’s partner-in-crime Max and Stephen Bishop (Being Mary Jane) as her latest target, Patrick.

Season 1 — which averaged more than 1.4 million total viewers an episode in Live+7 viewing, per Bravo — wrapped on April 11 with (spoiler alert!) Maddie conning FBI agent Patrick out of capturing the mysterious Doctor for whom she works. Meanwhile, Max discovered that Maddie left him with an empty decoy suitcase, not one full of the FBI’s money, as punishment for selling out their cohort Sally. But the biggest surprise came courtesy of Maddie’s “husband” Ezra (Heaps), who stole a pricey ring from the FBI and then left town with fellow spurned exes/amateur con artists Richard (Young) and Jules (Rendón).

Imposters has truly resonated with our audience and critics alike with its unique brand of suspense and humor,” NBCUniversal cable president of lifestyle networks Frances Berwick said in a statement. “We’re excited to see what the future holds for this unlikely band of flawed, but lovable characters that our talented creators and actors have fully brought to life.”

Production on the 10-episode second season is slated to begin this fall.

    This is the best news of the day!! Love this show!!

  3. Naz says:

    This is incredible news…I’m over the moon. This show is fantastic. I hope season 2 is just as thrilling.

  4. Max says:

    Love the show, hate the lead actress. Maybe Season 2 can concentrate on Ezra, Richard and Jules instead?

    • Fiona says:

      I couldn’t agree more. Inbar Lab was so miscast. Her character is annoying and fast forward material. I love the central trio of losers tho. I hope season 2 is all about them and Uma Thurman.

    • The Beach says:

      Yeah, I’m not a big fan of the lead either. It seems I can always see her “acting”.

  5. Greg says:

    I liked the concept, but there were such glaring issues with the plot that i couldn’t get past. If someone stole every penny you had and took out additional mortgages on your home, would you really not go to the police or claim fraud? You would just say thats that because of some blackmail material?

    • Wordsmith says:

      Yeah, in each case, the blackmail was something bad enough to completely negate any thought of going to the cops. Maybe that’s unrealistic, but it was the justification they gave.

      • Naz says:

        My issue was with how dumb and sloppy the FBI were, how did 3 amateurs outwit the FBI…I just could not suspend disbelief anymore esp with Gina & Jules, surely the FBI should have profiled everyone in Maddie’s orbit and everyone in those people’s orbits etc. Gina was just sloppy and incompetent.
        The show is a fun guilty pleasure but I hope the FBI pick up their game in s2.

    • jag says:

      You got a point. But with the trio being so entangled with all that happens, I doubt they be incline to do that. In the beginning maybe. In some degree, it is quite unbelievable that non of the 3 go to the police after they respectively find out the blackmail. maybe they can do flashback on Richard and Jules attempting to go to the police and failed?

    Awesome news that’s for sure.

  7. Wordsmith says:

    Catchier taglines might have been “The con is on: Imposters renewed” or perhaps “See you in the game!” for the more devoted fans. Just saying.
    Great news, though!

  8. Jj says:

    Yes!!! This show is great. (It’s everything the Catch should have been and wasn’t).

  9. Great news. Great show! says:

    That’s great news! LOVE this show!

  10. Gail Wolfe says:

  11. Lola says:

  12. Catherine says:
