'Imposters' Renewed for Second Season at Bravo
Bravo is keeping Imposters in the house.
The NBCUniversal-owned cable network has renewed the scripted drama starring Inbar Lavi for a second season, producers announced Monday during a For Your Consideration Emmy panel. The drama from creators Paul Adelstein and Adam Brooks will return with 10 new episodes in 2018, with production resuming in the fall.
The series follows a persona-shifting con artist and her three most recent victims, who pursue her in a game of cat and mouse. Rob Heaps, Parker Young, Marianne Rendon, Stephen Bishop and Brian Benben co-star.
"Adam, Paul and our wonderful cast and crew are delivering a mad and merry show that makes us all proud," said Jeff Wachtel, president and chief content officer at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. "We're excited that even more people will be able to join the party next season."
Imposters, which wrapped its run April 11, averaged 1.4 million total viewers per episode, spiking 23 percent among the key adults 18-49 demographic in the second half of the season. When factoring in delayed viewing, the series ranks as a top 10 cable show among adults 18-49.
"Imposters has truly resonated with our audience and critics alike with its unique brand of suspense and humor," said Frances Berwick, president of Lifestyle Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “We’re excited to see what the future holds for this unlikely band of flawed but lovable characters that our talented creators and actors have fully brought to life.”
Imposters is Bravo's third scripted series and joins Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce and half-hour comedy Odd Mom Out. The drama is produced in-house by Universal Cable Productions.
