'Devious Maids' Gets Season 2 Renewal From Lifetime

Date August 13, 2013

By Tim Kenneally

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - "Devious Maids" must really be cleaning up for Lifetime, because the network has ordered a second season of the soapy drama.

Lifetime executive vice president and general manager Rob Sharenow said on Tuesday that the series, from Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria, has received a renewal for 13 more episodes.

The series, which stars Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes, was initially passed over by ABC - ABC Studios produces the series - before being picked up by Lifetime.

Though the series - which is based on the Mexican telenova "Ellas son la Alegría del Hogar" and follows the exploits of five ambitious maids as they work for wealthy Beverly Hills residents - got off to a lukewarm start with its June 23 premiere, drawing 2 million total viewers - the series has since by watched by nearly 23 million total viewers, according to Lifetime.

"Devious Maids" is also Lifetime's fastest-growing drama in the network's history, and has landed Lifetime in first place among cable networks in the Sunday at 10 p.m. timeslot.
