Mistresses Renewed For Second Season + Jason George On The Show’s Popularity
It’s confirmed, your favorite scandalous summer soap has been renewed for another season.
ABC confirmed this week that Mistresses, starring Alyssa Milano has been picked up for a second season. Over the summer, the show became the second most popular scripted drama in the 18-49 demographic, averaging 5 million viewers.
“For all of you great supporters of #Mistresses, I am so happy to announce that there will be a Season 2 of Mistresses!!! God is good,” co-star Rochelle Aytes tweeted after the big announcement.
“Happy to report that #Mistresses was picked up for a second season. Thank you for all the love and support. I appreciate you,” Milano also tweeted.
HipHollywood caught up with Jason George, who (plot spoiler) plays Milano’s work husband and possible love interest, just days before ABC announced the show’s renewal to talk about the program’s popularity.
“I did not know it was going to become this thing, I had no clue,” the actor told us. “It was a summer show. Nobody knows how to do a summer show, not on network … My thing was it’s a job, it shoots in Los Angeles, I get to sleep in my own bed. These are all positive things,” George dished.
Mistresses, which also stars Jes Macallan and Yunjin Kim, is scheduled to premiere in the Summer of 2014.
