The Devious Maids will be back to plot, scheme and maybe even clean a bit in 2014.
Lifetime announced today that it has renewed the Marc Cherry-produced drama for a second season.
The series has been enjoying a steady ratings increase since the June 23 opener, hitting a high of 2.9 million total viewers on Sunday, July 28, half of whom were among adults 18-49. It has helped Lifetime become the number-one cable network in its timeslot on Sunday nights.
Said Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Lifetime, in a statement:
“One of the most daring series on television, Devious Maids has quickly become a hit. We are very proud of the show and are delighted to continue our partnership with Marc Cherry, Eva Longoria, Sabrina Wind, ABC Studios and Televisa USA. I am thrilled we are bringing Devious Maids back for a second season to lead our scripted slate in 2014."
