'Mistresses' Renewed for Season 2, So You'll Have Resolution For that Cliffhanger
It seems ABC will continue its retreat into scripted summer programming. The network announced Wednesday that it has decided to renew Mistresses , the soapy drama starring Alyssa Milano, despite the fact that the series had ABC's lowest-rated premiere since 2011 this summer.
That said, the drama maintained its premiere numbers, ending with 3.9 million viewers and showing a strong dedication in viewers attracted to Mistresses, which follows four friends and their role in illicit relationships. Perhaps a second season is all the series needs to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, the British series that's a hit overseas.
The announcement is good news for Mistresses stars, Rochelle Aytes, Jes Macallan, Yunjin Kim, and Brett Tucker. But it's also good news for its viewers, who watched Season 1 end with Milano's pregnant character, Savi, suffering medical trauma after a life-threatening car accident and Kim's character, Dr. Karen Kim, possibly being the victim of a gunshot. Those are definitely two cliffhangers worthy of a full season renewal.
But the biggest cliffhanger of all: Will we find out the fate of Jason George's Dominic? Because it's unlikely the actor will return to the series — George is currently locked into Witches of East End. How will we bear without him casting a spell on us all in Mistresses?
