“Devious Maids” will be back to clean up again.
The series, which hails from “Desperate Housewives” honcho Marc Cherry, has been renewed for a 13-episode third season.
Lifetime executive vice president and general manager Rob Sharenow said, “We are thrilled to be bringing ‘Devious Maids’ back for another season. Marc Cherry has created a uniquely twisted world that blends his comic wit with devilishly ingenious characters and plot twists.”
Season 2 of “Devious Maids” wrapped up in July. Over its two-season run, the series has averaged 2.2 million total viewers, with 955,000 of them in the 18-49 demographic most sought by advertisers.
Centered around a close-knit group of maids, “Devious Maids” is set in a world where murder and mayhem collide in the mansions of Beverly Hills’ wealthiest and most powerful families.
Along with the renewal, the show has tapped “Cougar Town” and “The Soul Man” veteran Ric Swartzlander as well as Brian Tanen, who’s long been with “Devious Maids” and worked on “Desperate Housewives,” as co-showrunners for the show alongside Cherry.
