LOS ANGELES (August 13, 2013) - Lifetime and its viewers are going to get even more Devious next year.

Devious Maids is produced by ABC Studios.

Since its premiere on June 23, nearly 23 million viewers have watched Devious Maids on Lifetime. It is the network's fastest-growing drama ever, and has catapulted Lifetime to cable's number one network in the Sunday 10:00pm ET/PT time slot among Women. Its 18% Hispanic composition nearly doubles Lifetime's primetime average.

"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.

"ABC Studios has had a great partnership with Lifetime and Televisa and we're looking forward to another terrific season with Marc Cherry and his talented cast and crew," said Stephanie Leifer, Senior Vice President, Current Programming, ABC Studios.

Devious Maids centers on a close-knit group of maids (Ortiz, Ramírez, Sánchez, Ganem and Reyes), bonded together by their jobs, life struggles and boss' melodramatic "upstairs-downstairs" universe, that turns to one another for support after a fellow maid Flora (Paula Garcés) is brutally murdered at the home of her employers. Devious Maids also stars Susan Lucci, Rebecca Wisocky, Tom Irwin, Mariana Klaveno, Grant Show, Matt Cedeño, Melinda Page Hamilton, Drew Van Acker, Brianna Brown and Brett Cullen.
