‘Mistresses’ Renewed by ABC

ABC has handed a second season to sudsy drama “Mistresses,” and plans to bow the sophomore season next summer.

Program debuted on the Alphabet’s lineup in June with “The Bachelorette” as its Monday night lead-in for most of its run.

Though not a great performer, “Mistresses” held steady for most of its run and finished as the No. 2 new scripted series of the summer in adults 18-49, behind “Under the Dome.” And, it improved later in its run when ABC moved it to 9 p.m., and thus didn’t have to face “Dome.”

“Mistresses” closed out season one on Sept. 9, drawing just shy of four million viewers.

Drama, from ABC Studios, stars Alyssa Milano, Rochelle Aytes, Jes Macallan and Yunjin Kim and is based on a Brit format.
