That’s not a typo in the headline: Bravo has picked up its scripted series “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” for three more seasons, taking it through a fifth year on the channel.
The multi-season pickup for the show, which stars Lisa Edelstein, will ensure the show produces in the neighborhood of 65 episodes, which could make it more attractive for a streaming or off-network afterlife. It’s been a solid but not world-beating performer for Bravo, with Season 2 averaging a 0.3 same-day rating in adults 18-49 and 660,000 viewers.
“With our first foray into scripted, Bravo’s viewers fell in love with Abby [Edelstein] and her close-knit group of friends experiencing the fabulous joys and deep disappointments of juggling dating, careers, family and relationships,” Frances Berwick, president of Lifestyle Networks at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, says in a statement. “We are all excited to see what’s next for Abby and her friends.”
“Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” joins these shows that have been renewed for 2016-17 and beyond.
