Bravo will engage in another round of its first original scripted series, as the NBCU service ordered a second season of Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.
The series, starring Lisa Edelstein and produced by Universal Cable Productions, hit its Nielsen high with its ninth installment on Jan. 27, which tallied 1.5 million watchers on a live+3 basis.
Production on a second 13-episode season is scheduled to begin this summer. The show is created and executive-produced by Marti Noxon.
“Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce has struck a chord with Bravo viewers with its sharp-witted humor and emotionally honest take on divorce and starting over,” said Lara Spotts, senior vice president of development for Bravo Media. “We are extremely proud of the talent and creative team, and can’t wait to see what the future holds for [series protagonist] Abby McCarthy.”
