The Exes: Season Two for TV Land Series

The Exes season twoThe guys of The Exes haven’t had great luck with marriage but their show is doing okay. It’s just been renewed for a second season on TV Land.

Starring Donald Faison, Wayne Knight, David Alan Basche, Kelly Stables and Kristen Johnston, The Exes revolves around a trio of very different divorced men who live together in an apartment owned by their female divorce attorney.

The Exes TV series debuted in November to a 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.435 million total viewers. The numbers have dwindled in the past month or so but TV Land is still happy enough with the show’s performance to renew it for a second season.

Last night’s installment marked the season finale but viewers won’t have to wait long to see new installments. Season two will premiere sometime in June.

Here’s the press release from TV Land:

“The Exes” revolves around divorce attorney Holly (Johnston) as she introduces her newly-single client Stuart (Basche) to his new roommates – ladies’ man Phil (Faison) and homebody Haskell (Knight), who share an apartment which Holly owns. Things start off a little shaky when the two bachelors have reservations about living with clingy Stuart, but Holly is right across the hall to help them avoid any catastrophes. To top it all off, Holly’s assistant, Eden (Stables), doesn’t exactly let her professionalism get in the way of prying into her boss’s personal life.

    Love the show! So glad to see Kristen Johnston back on a series and making us all laugh again. Congrats to her for a fasinating book as well.

    I love this show! I started watching it just to see Wayne Knight as I became a fan after seeing him in Jurassic Park. After watching the show for awhile I think that the other actors are great too. I really enjoy the characters and the plots. A lot of LOL episodes, that’s for sure. I am thrilled that they’re going to be on for another season. Long Live “The Exes!”

    I’m very glad that “The Exes” will continue. I enjoy the plots and the interactions of the characters. I laugh and forget all my cares & woes!

    Can’t say I didn’t see that coming. But I wanna know why all of TV Land’s original shows are about single and/or divorced people that go to bars and stuff. Why can’t they just be with somebody already and stay with them?
