A comedy-drama series received a big show of support from its network today, picking up a renewal for three seasons. The show is “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,” which airs on Bravo.
Created and executive produced by Marti Noxon, the series debuted in December 2014 and wrapped its second season back in February.
“The series continues to follow the life of self-help writer Abby McCarthy (Lisa Edelstein) as she navigates being single in her 40s with the help of her girlfriends Phoebe (Beau Garett), Delia (Necar Zadegan) and Jo (Alanna Ubach),” Bravo says in its announcement. “The season two finale of ‘Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce’ (2/23/16) ranked as the most-watched episode of the season, delivering 1.2 million total viewers.”
The announcement comes on the heels of Bravo’s third scripted series greenlight, “My So Called Wife” (working title), from UCP and executive producers Adam Brooks (“Definitely, Maybe,”) and Paul Adelstein (“Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce”).
Said Frances Berwick, president of Lifestyle Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment: “With our first foray into scripted, Bravo’s viewers fell in love with Abby and her close-knit group of friends experiencing the fabulous joys and deep disappointments of juggling dating, careers, family and relationships. We are all excited to see what’s next for Abby and her friends.”
