The devious maids of Beverly Hills always come clean in the end, regardless of the deadly circumstances. Devious Maids concluded its second season on Sunday. This year’s season had a lot to offer to the audience.
The show stars Ana Ortiz, Roselyn Sanchez, Dania Ramirez, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes as five maids working for some of Beverly Hills’ most elite families, but these five ladies are not just sweeping the floors or washing dishes for a living. Apparently, each and every character on the show has a wicked secret hidden under the debris.
The second season of Devious Maids was the winner in my opinion. The twisted plots and mysteries of the show were key elements that made this year’s season standout from rest of the series. Fans were able to see the dark sides of each and every character in the show. The sizzling season two finale of Devious Maids left me speechless and its ending was simply bewildering. But the real question is; will the show be renewed for a third season by Lifetime?
Clearly, the ratings played a pivotal role in this year’s season. The premiere episode managed to garner 1.96 million viewers. However, the show saw a decline in ratings throughout the remainder of the season with some episodes attracting between 1.5 – 1.7 million viewers on first airings. Despite the fluctuation in ratings, the show managed to keep up with the viewers.
The reason why I believe Lifetime should renew Devious Maids for a third season is because the show has a lot more to offer in the future. It looks promising in terms of the storylines. In addition, the series breaks a number of stereotypes about Latina women. Also, the show is a modern day soap opera that is a blend of mystery, drama and bits of comedy which is a rarity in today’s television landscape.
Devious Maids definitely has the X factor. The show has been cleverly planned out. I am sure that Devious Maids will get renewed for a third season. Let’s keep those fingers crossed!
