‘Playing House’ Renewed for Season 3 at USA Network

Playing House” has been renewed for a third season.

The announcement was made Thursday at Television Critics Association in Pasadena, Calif., where the series’ stars Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair made a surprise appearance at the bi-annual press tour.

Interrupting USA Network president Chris McCumber at TCA in a funny, unexpected skit, Parham and St. Clair bombarded their boss, asking about a renewal, saying, “It just would be such a shame because the show ended up on multiple lists for 2015.” The ladies then ensued to scream with happiness when McCumber announced the pickup.

Hailing from Universal Cable Productions, the series was created by Parham and St. Claire, whose real -life friendship inspired the fan-favorite show.

Though the comedy has an avidly passionate following, “Playing House” struggled to gain traction last summer in its second season. Its eight episodes on Tuesday nights averaged about 600,000 viewers, including 350,000 in the 18-49 demo, according to Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates. However, as the creators/stars mentioned, the comedy has received much critical praise.

In addition to “Playing House” being renewed, McCumber also announced the series pickup for “Falling Water” from “The Walking Dead’s” Gale Anne Hurd.

No premiere date was announced for the third season of “Playing House.”
