Mistresses: To Be Cancelled or Renewed for Season Three?

Mistresses TV show on ABC: season 3 or canceled?Last night’s second season finale of Mistresses left fans with a whole lot of cliffhangers but, will they ever be resolved? Will the ABC summer drama be renewed for a third season or, will it be cancelled instead?

Based on a British series of the same name, Mistresses revolves around the lives and loves of four female friends whose lives are complicated by their personal and romantic relationships. Performers include Alyssa Milano, Rochelle Aytes, Yunjin Kim, Jes Macallan, Jason George, and Brett Tucker.

Last summer, ABC made a surprising move when they renewed this new low-rated drama. While the series wasn’t a success with a broad audience, it did have a small group of very devoted fans.

If the network execs were hoping that the numbers would grow this season, they’ve likely been disappointed. Season two is down by 15% in the 18-49 demographic and about 3% in total viewership. Will these numbers be good enough to see the show renewed? We’ll have to wait and see. Word is that a decision will be made within the next month.

If Mistresses is cancelled, executive producer K.J. Steinberg says, “If we have the misfortune of not getting [renewed], we still feel that we’ve told some great stories this season and ended the series on some great, great questions… Ultimately, these women’s lives go on — and the complications keep tracing back to every action they’ve taken since the pilot. That feeling and that train keep moving. If it ends here, it would be very, very sad for us. But if I had known that it would end here, I don’t think I would have ended it any other way.”

What do you think? Do you still like the Mistresses TV show? Should it be renewed for a third season or should it be cancelled this time? Should the season have ended with so many cliffhangers?

Update: ABC has renewed Mistresses for a third season. Details here.

I just feel that if it does not get renewed, we should have some form of closure for each storyline. So many cliffhangers and too many questions. I mean, Obviously all the womens lives move on but I would like to know the fallout.

Either way, I am so happy that joss and Harry are together. :)
