The cable network Bravo has granted the renewal for the second season of its first original scripted series “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.” Find out the details about this news story below.
While not exactly a rating puller, Bravo has renewed the freshman series “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” for another season. The show, which centers on a 40-something relationship guru whose marriage crumbles, leading to the disillusion of her fans, has been airing for ten weeks on the cable network. It is the very first scripted series that Bravo has enlisted, and it looks like they have not made a mistake in doing so.
Created by Marti Nixon, “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” averages a weekly viewership of 1.5 million according to Deadline, which first broke the news of the renewal. Bravo remains pleased with the decent numbers. It actually keeps on increasing and notes that on social media, the series actually gets a substantial amount of followers, likes, reposts and replies.
‘Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce’ has struck a chord with Bravo viewers with its sharp-witted humor and emotionally honest take on divorce and starting over,” remarks the Bravo’s Senior VP for Development, Lara Spotts, in a press release published on Zap2it. She further said that the network is proud to work with the show’s stars and its creative team.
The series is led by Lisa Edelstein (as Abby) the best-selling author of relationship books who now has to put the pieces of her life back together after her husband (Jake), played by Paul Adelstein, asks for a divorce. The show also stars Beau Garret (as Phoebe) and Necar Zadegan (as Delia). Janeanne Garofalo (as Lyla) was also part of the series of its first six episodes in the first season. She has since been replaced with Alana Ubach (as Jo), who brings a different tone and vibe to the show.
The first season has been set for a 13-episode run, with three more to go after the renewal announcement.
“Girlfriends Guide to Divorce” is based on a book written by Vicki Iovine who also serves as one of the show’s executive producers. The show is from Universal Cable Productions.
