Bravo Renews ‘Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce’ for Season 2

Bravo has handed a second season to its first original scripted series “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,” the cabler announced Wednesday.

Currently in its debut season, production on Season 2 will begin this summer with 13 episodes.

The Universal Cable Productions dramedy from creator-exec producer Marti Noxon stars Lisa Edelstein (“House M.D.”) and Paul Adelstein (“Private Practice,” “Scandal”) as a newly divorced couple living an upscale lifestyle in L.A. Edelstein plays Abby McCarthy, a self-help book author who, with the help of her divorced girlfriends, navigates her newfound single life in her 40s, after her career and marriage fall apart.

“We’ve been excited about ‘Girlfriends’ Guide’ since the day Marti brought it in, and we were elated it became Bravo’s first scripted series,” said Jeff Wachtel, president and chief content officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “Lisa Edelstein and the rest of the incredible cast have sparked fresh conversations about strong, complicated women in a smart and entertaining way. We are thrilled to be back for a second season with the great team at Bravo.”

As its launch into scripted programming, “Girlfriends’ Guide” was an important project for Bravo; the cable net’s second scripted series, “Odd Mom Out,” premieres June 8.

Also in the NBC Cable family, E!’s first-ever scripted series, “The Royals,” from creator Mark Schwahn and starring Elizabeth Hurley, was given an early renewal for season two before its series debut on March 15.

“Girlfriends’ Guide” earned a series high across all key demos on Jan. 27 with nearly 1.5 million total viewers, 983,000 adults 25-54 and 872,000 adults 18-49, according to Nielsen Live+3 data.
