It appears that there’s still a lot of dirty laundry. Lifetime has renewed their Devious Maids TV show for a third season. The 13 new episodes will debut sometime next year.
Devious Maids revolves around a group of Latina maids who work in the Beverly Hills homes of wealthy and powerful families. The large cast includes Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sánchez, Judy Reyes, Edy Ganem, Susan Lucci, Rebecca Wisocky, Tom Irwin, Grant Show, Drew Van Acker, Mariana Klaveno, Brianna Brown, Brett Cullen, Wolé Parks, Mark Deklin, Joanna P. Adler, Colin Woodell, and Dominic Adams.
The second season of Devious Maids concluded in late July and averaged 1.81 million viewers each week. That was down by 29% compared to the first season. It’s still the cable channel’s highest-rated scripted series. The Lottery draws about half that size audience and it looks likely to be cancelled.
Here’s the renewal press release:
