The Hotwives of Orlando Key Art - P 2014

Hulu is bringing The Hotwives, its satirical take on Bravo's Real Housewives franchise, back for a second season, set in Las Vegas.

The second season of the Paramount Digital Entertainment series will premiere in 2015. Marry Me writers Danielle Schneider and Dannah Phirman are set to return as producers along with executive producers Jonathan Stern and Paul Scheer.

The first, Orlando-based Hotwives season, which premiered this summer, starred Casey Wilson, Angela Kinsey and Kristen Schall as their housewife characters fought, shopped and spent their husbands' money.
“Las Vegas was an obvious choice for the second season of the Hotwives franchise because it's a city built on broken dreams, fake boobs and real magic," Scheer said in a statement. "Season two will focus on a new crop of wannabe socialites with some new faces as well as old faces that just look new."
Stern added: “In season one, we wanted to take a cold, hard look at the up-till-now entirely secret world of rich friends that hate each other. But we realized we'd only barely scratched the surface. We see this second season as a second marriage which will be better than the first and with more sex."

The Hotwives of Orlando was a huge success on Hulu and we are looking forward to continuing our relationship with the incredibly talented writers and executive producers of the Hotwives franchise," Craig Erwich, Hulu's senior vp and head of content, said in a statement. "We are so excited to be able to bring our viewers more of the antics, drama and laugh-out-loud moments that made season one such a hit."
