Lifetime Renews 'Devious Maids' for Season 3

Over two months since the second season ended, Lifetime has officially renewed Devious Maids for a 13 episode third season. The new episodes of the primetime soap created by Marc Cherry will debut in 2015.

"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," said Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Lifetime.

Devious Maids is set in a world where murder and mayhem collide in the mansions of Beverly Hills' wealthiest and most powerful families. Class warfare has never been as fun and dirty as it is in the tiny enclave where the staff is as clever, witty and downright devilish as their employers.

The second season starred Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez, Judy Reyes, Edy Ganem, Rebecca Wisocky, Tom Irwin, Grant Show, Drew Van Acker, Mark Deklin, Joanna P. Adler, Dominic Adams, Colin Woodell and Susan Lucci.

Cherry has served as sole showrunner for the series during its first two seasons. In the third year, veteran producer Ric Swartzlander, who has just joined the series, and producer Brian Tanen, who has been with the series since its beginning, will serve as co-showrunners alongside Cherry.
