Happily Divorced: Season Three Renewal for TV Land Sitcom

Starring Fran Drescher, Happily Divorced is inspired by the actresses’ real-life story. It revolves around a Los Angeles florist (Drescher) whose husband comes out of the closet after 18-years of marriage.

Peter Marc Jacobson, the show’s co-creator/co-executive producer and Drescher’s ex-husband, announced the news on Facebook and thanked fans for all of their support. He also posted a video of the cast and crew being given the good news and their ensuing excitement.

There’s no word yet on when season three of Happily Divorced will air but season two is expected to finish airing on June 6th.

    So glad they changed their minds at TV Land, it is the perfect compliment to the already great line up of new shows on TVL. I hope the Soul Man is also renewed.
