Lifetime Renews ‘Devious Maids’ for Season 4

Devious Maids” will return to Lifetime for a fourth season, the cabler announced Thursday. Season 4 will consist of 10 episodes.

Created by “Desperate Housewives” creator Marc Cherry, “Devious Maids” is exec produced by Eva Longoria, and stars Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramírez, Roselyn Sánchez, Judy Reyes and Susan Lucci.

“‘Devious Maids’ is a steady hit that continues to deliver for us,” Liz Gateley, EVP of programming for Lifetime, commented. “It has found a loyal audience that is socially engaged with the show. The entire writing and production team worked hard to up the storytelling this year and the cast delivered great performances, so the show just gets better and better. I am very excited to renew it for another season.”

The soapy telenovela-adapted dramedy is set in a world where murder and mayhem collide in the mansions of Beverly Hills’ wealthiest and most powerful families, and the series centers on a close-knit group of maids, Marisol (Ortiz), Rosie (Ramírez), Carmen (Sánchez) and Zoila (Reyes), who are bonded together by their jobs, life struggles and the melodramatic universe that engulfs their employers.

Though down from last year, “Devious Maids” was a consistent performer for Lifetime, hitting season highs with its finale and finishing among the summer’s top 15 scripted cable series. It averaged a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 and about 2.3 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates.

“Devious Maids” hails from ABC Studios and is exec produced by Cherry, Longoria, Sabrina Wind, Brian Tanen, Larry Shuman, David Lonner, John Mass, Ric Swartzlander, plus Televisa USA’s Paul Presburger and Michael Garcia.
