VH1 announced Monday it has greenlit a second season of its scripted dramedy series Single Ladies.
The series, which stars Stacey Dash, LisaRaye McCoy and Charity Shea as three best friends with differing views on love and relationships, is averaging 1.7 million viewers for its premiere episodes and 2.8 million during premieres plus first encore, said the network.
When paired with reality series Basketball Wives, Single Ladies -- produced by Queen Latifah's Flavor Entertainment -- is the most watched series on cable with women in the key 18-34 demo on Monday nights since both series' May 30 premieres.
The sophomore season of Single Ladies is expected to begin filming in late 2011 and is slated for premiere in 2012.
"Our viewers have fallen for Single Ladies and its honest, modern take on love, female friendship and dating," said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Production for VH1 in a statement. "We're extremely pleased to give the audience another great season of the series they love."
Queen Latifah added: "We knew from the beginning this show was going to appeal to people everywhere; it's funny, sexy and smart. We are so happy that we were able to join with VH1 to find such a great home for this incredible show."
