“Devious Maids” has been canceled and will not return for Season 5, TheWrap has learned.

The decision at Lifetime came just weeks after the drama wrapped up its fourth season on the cable network.

The show is set in a world where murder and mayhem collide in the mansions of Beverly Hills’ wealthiest and most powerful families. It centers on a close-knit group of maids who are bonded together by their jobs, life struggles and the melodramatic universe that engulfs their employers.

The series stars Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Judy Reyes and Roselyn Sanchez.

Inspired by the hit telenovela “Ellas son… la alegría del hogar,” “Devious Maids” is produced by ABC Studios. The series was created by Marc Cherry and is executive produced by Cherry, Sabrina Wind, Eva Longoria, Brian Tanen, Larry Shuman, David Lonner, John Mass, Ric Swartzlander and Televisa USA’s Paul Presburger and Michael Garcia.

“Devious Maids” was developed as a pilot potentially for ABC, and landed at Lifetime after the broadcast network passed.
