'Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce' Renewed for 3 More Seasons
Bravo is doubling down on Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.
The cable network has renewed the dramedy from Marti Noxon for three more seasons.
As Bravo’s first-ever original scripted series, the Universal Cable Productions drama stars Lisa Edelstein and Paul Adelstein. It follows the life of self-help writer Abby McCarthy (Edelstein) as she navigates being single in her 40s with the help of her girlfriends Phoebe (Beau Garett), Delia (Necar Zadegan) and Jo (Alanna Ubach).
The show’s season-two finale, which aired in February, was the most-watched episode of the season with 1.2 million total viewers. The news of the three-season pickup comes shortly after Bravo greenlighted its third scripted series, My So Called Wife, from UCP and executive producers Adam Brooks (Definitely, Maybe) and Adelstein.
“With our first foray into scripted, Bravo's viewers fell in love with Abby and her close-knit group of friends experiencing the fabulous joys and deep disappointments of juggling dating, careers, family and relationships," said Frances Berwick, president of lifestyle networks and NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “We are all excited to see what’s next for Abby and her friends.”
"With Marti and Lisa leading our stellar writers and cast, GG2D is a show that captures an important slice of the zeitgeist," added NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment chief content officer and UCP president Jeff Wachtel. "And with this remarkable three-season pickup, it will be a show that audiences can discover and enjoy forever."
