Devious Maids – Cancelled

EXCLUSIVE: Lifetime has opted not to renew Devious Maids for a fifth season. The decision comes a couple of weeks after the series ended its Season 4 run on the network.

Devious Maids, developed by Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry based on a telenovela format, migrated to Lifetime after being developed and piloted at ABC. It got off to a strong start, with its freshman season peaking at 3 million Live+same day viewers for the season finale. The ratings have slipped in each consecutive season, with the most recent fourth season averaging 0.923 million viewers (L+SD), but the show has been consistent, with virtually no drop-off throughout Season 4. Its average still was twice the viewership of Lifetime’s other original scripted series, the critically praised UnReal.

Wrapping a respectable four-season run, Devious Maids, from ABC Studios, was the first all-Latina ensemble on English-speaking television. It was Lifetime’s only established returning series the last couple of years, used to help launch UnReal.
