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.
