The women’s-magazine drama has been picked up for Seasons 2 and 3, the network announced on Wednesday, for a total of 20 more episodes. It’s getting a new showrunner, though: Amanda Lasher (Sweet/Vicious, Gossip Girl) will take the reins from creator Sarah Watson (Parenthood), who had “creative differences with the network,” per The Hollywood Reporter.

The series — based on the life of Hearst Magazines COO and former Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Joanna Coles — stars Faking It’s Katie Stevens, Chasing Life’s Aisha Dee and Political Animals’ Meghann Fahy as a trio of best friends who work at the Cosmo-esque publication Scarlet.
