Devious Maids Season 5 will not be happening as Lifetime has decided not to renew the show. The cancellation news has really miffed the fans and they are calling for a renewal.
Creators of Devious Maids Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria are the mastermind behind the show. The show did well as they premiered on ABC with 3 million viewers. The show follows the story of four Latino maids. Fans will not be able to know what happens to the maids as expected in Devious Maids Season 5.
Devious Maids Season 4 left the audience on tenterhooks with Marisol Suarez (Ana Ortiz) not showing up on her wedding with Peter Hudson (James Denton). It was later found out that she was kidnapped as there was broken window glasses found at her place.
Devious Maids Season 5 would have been the answers to the questions left in the previous season. The mystery will continue to surround as to what happened to Marisol. Was it her ex-boyfriend who was avenging her wedding to Hudson. Another possible suspect could be the Genevieve Delatour as she could be jealous of Hudson marrying Marisol.
Lifetime chose the show UnReal over Devious Maids. Fans thought that the latter deserved a renewal and not the former. Executive producer Sabrina Wind gave an interview which renewed interests among fans that it could be seen on screens again!
However, the reason behind the show not getting renewed was because of poor ratings. Season 4 locked 0.3 same-day ratings and 920,000 viewers which was significant drop from the earlier seasons reported The Christian Times. Lifetime has two drama pilots that could be renewed the supernatural Sea Change and anthology A Midsummer’s Nightmare.
May be Devious Maids Season 5 lost out to the other series that were out there for renewal. It doesn’t seem like Lifetime will be bringing the show back on air. A spin off series could be a good idea- a quick way to bring the chapter of Marisol to a close and end the mystery?
