Despite the early negative response to the television series Devious Maids, which was brought to us from the Desperate Housewives team of Eva Longoria and Marc Cherry, the first season of the show went on to become a big success. Now, it has been confirmed that Devious Maids has been given a second season by Lifetime, with 13 episodes airing in 2014.
Lifetime's Executive Vice President and General Manager, Rob Sharenow said, "One of the most daring series on television, Devious Maids has quickly become a hit."
He added, "We are very proud of the show and are delighted to continue our partnership with Marc Cherry, Eva Longoria, Sabrina Wind, ABC Studios and Televisa USA. I am thrilled we are bringing Devious Maids back for a second season to lead our scripted slate in 2014."
Devious Maids came in for some heavy criticism when the first season began airing, as many claimed that the show perpetuated negative stereotypes. However, Eva Longoria spoke out in defence of the show and the message it sends, and Devious Maids quickly became a hit. It was also recently reported that Eva Longoria will produce a new sex therapist comedy series.
