Devious Maids Renewed for Second Season

Lifetime doesn't want the dust to settle just yet. The network has ordered a second season of its soap drama "Devious Maids."

The Mexican import centers on five Latina maids — played by Ana Ortiz, Roselyn Sanchez, Judy Reyes, Dania Ramirez and Edy Ganem — who work for the well-heeled elite in Beverly Hills and find themselves bonded when a fellow housemaid is murdered. The Marc Cherry series drew much criticism ahead of its premiere from within the Latino community and beyond questioning whether the show perpetuates negative stereotypes.

Accusations surrounding the series, an adaptation of Televisa's telenovela "Ellas son la Alegria del Hogar" (They Are the Joy of Home") had executive producer Eva Longoria on the offense.

"What I didn't expect was that much criticism from our own community having not even seen it," she told The Times in a May interview. "It doesn't define our culture, if we're playing these types of roles."

That didn't stop the more than 2 million viewers who tuned in to its June 23 premiere — and the numbers have steadily grown since then. While still hardly the type of numbers Cherry's ABC soap "Desperate Housewives" drew with its Sunday airings in its heyday, the sudser has at least done well in positioning Lifetime as cable's No. 1 network in the 10 p.m. ET/PT slot among women.

“One of the most daring series on television, "Devious Maids" has quickly become a hit. We are very proud of the show and are delighted to continue our partnership with Marc Cherry, Eva Longoria, Sabrina Wind, ABC Studios and Televisa USA. I am thrilled we are bringing "Devious Maids" back for a second season to lead our scripted slate in 2014,” said Rob Sharenow, executive vice president and general manager of Lifetime, in a statement.

I like the powells they r very weird and funny. I loved how Marisol sneaked in and visted Flora's grandmother. The grandmother said some very intersting stuff. I felt so bad for Odessa. I loved how Carmen stood up for her. It's good that valentina didnt give her egg too creepy. I love how valentina's mom put genevie in her place. I still think Mrs. Powell will try to get some time with tucker. I wonder who was flora's baby's father. next week is looking very good.

Another good episode!! Peri hitting that guy was funny as hell. I loved her going down her knees to pray. I felt bad for Rosie having to clean up Peri's mess. I get the feeling flora's baby was Remi's dad. I loved remi punching his dad. I don't like Philppe at all. I think Genieve is making a horrible mistake. Marisol should be careful because now Taylor and Micheal r suspicous of her. Oh my Alejandro's bf wat a weirdo. I loved how carmen took advantige of him lol. Now uh oh alejandro will be outed now in the public. next week is looking good too.

Poor taylor when she got shot by the sniper. I love how peri brought bak Rosie's son. I like that rosie gave bak the enagement ring to Spence. I hate philipee so much. I like that remi wants to do good. I hated but yet understood Zolia's motives for Valentina to stay home. Poor Alejandro. It was a funny scene with alejandro and sam chasing after the paprazzi lol. Poor taylor though i hope she doesn't loose the baby. I love that Evelyn wants a divorce from Adrian. She is finally standing up for herself. The season finale is looking good thats for sure.

Wat a finale thats for sure. I like how adrian killed off Philipee. Philipee deserved that wat a bastard. Poor taylor on how she lost the baby. I love that the ladies knoe the truth about Marisol. I liked how the ladies helped her with finding the truth. Poor carman I would choose Sam if i was her. I also like how the ladies helped with the backup story for adrian powell. I'm so happy Philipee is dead genieve is a dumbass. I hope Valentina doesn't leave she should have listened to her mom. I felt bad for Rosie but karma is a bitch. I think wat Peri did was very evil. I'm happy eddie is out of prison too. I cant wait till next yr for a new season.

I can't wait either. This was the one show that really hooked me this year. Phillipe as Flora's killer didn't exactly shock me, but I was satisfied in the end. Hope they keep up the pace next season.
