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.

    BIG fan of the show, but wtf happened with this season 2 finale?? It was the worst thing i have ever seen, i know its a show and all but who hooks up with there brother in law, you are making the viewers hate the caracters they fell in love with, does Joss (the one who loves and cares son much about family) have any respect for her sister? I dont think so. You gave her the perfect guy to marry and she still manages to **** that up, come on guys couldn’t you make him up to be a cheater or something?? No the guy is a HOT plastic surgent that loves Joss and would do anything for her and she ***** it all up with Harry?!?!??! This is just crazy writing, i would like to see the show go for a season 3 but people, people, people try to make some sense when writing about women we are not all *******!

    This is one of best shows I have seen in years. I rarely watch TV but make sure I watch every episode of Mistresses. Please help us advocate for another season. I would love to see what transpires next.
