Devious Maids Canceled After Four Seasons!

Susan Lucci has found herself in a familiar place – that of sad cancellation of a show in which she stars.  On Thursday, Deadline revealed that Lifetime has chosen to not renew the soapy Devious Maids for a fifth season.

Devious Maids was executive produced by Eva Longoria and starred Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez and Judy Reyes and developed and created by Marc Cherry.  The series wound up on Lifetime after being developed by ABC, and the network chosing to  not pick it up for series.

While the soapy ‘Maids’ got off to a solid start, the ratings have slipped in each consecutive season, with the most recent fourth season averaging 0.923 million viewers (L+SD), but the show has been consistent, with virtually no drop-off throughout Season 4. Its average still was twice the viewership of Lifetime’s other original scripted series, the critically praised UnReal.

Wrapping a respectable four-season run, Devious Maids, from ABC Studios, was the first all-Latina ensemble on English-speaking television.

So sad to hear about Devious Maids being canceled? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Darn that’s bad Lifetime, this show was good, and funny and all, had an awesome cast.
As for the other show UnReal, it’s not that good.

Nooooooo! This was campy, soapy fun and Rebecca Wisocky stole the show as Evelyn Powell.

If GH is adamant about not bringing Ron Carlivati back as head-writer, they should reach out out to the Devious Maids writers who knew how to tell a story with twists, character development, humor, AND a pay-off in only13 weeks…something Jean and Shelly have yet to do in nearly a year’s worth of episodes.

I loved that show. It was so funny and every season ended with a cliff hanger. It would be great if they could at least have one last “movie” to wrap up the loose ends. I am going to miss it , the actors and the wonderful writing.

Lifetime finally has something worth watching, and they cancel it. Stop the insanity, TV people!

You could tell that for Season 4’s closer that they were trying to “wrap it up” just in case in got cancelled, I suspected it might though season Four was good.
Nothing lasts anymore, it’s a shame really. I enjoyed seeing Susan on it, and the show itself was similar to Desperate Housewives – I liked it, sorry to see it cancelled but I’m getting used to alll my shows being cancelled a this point.

Boo! Such a great show. Susan Lucci was at her best as Genevieve and the couple playing the Powells were my favorites.

I would love the writers of this soap take on daytime dramas. They know how to do comedy, drama and cliffhangers.

Susan Lucci should go, to Days of Our Lives as the new Vivian Alamain, I would accept a recast. I still love Louise Sorel as my madam, but Louise will not come back to Days.

– another – network should pick this up… an established show

my first thought… they didn’t want to have to pay for syndication right

a lot of shows are cancelled because of this reason

I’m disappointed saddened… and just a little pissed

this is a great MIX of cast… LOVE the Latina

I think that is a very unfortunate decision for Lifetime. They could use a good show in their stable. And why couldn’t they give “DM” another season to wrap things up? That’s so unfair to those of us who have stuck with this show through all four seasons. There’s not another show on Lifetime that watch. Boo!

But a big “Thank You” to the cast and crew of “DM” for some very funny and entertaining moments over the years. Best wishes on your future endeavors. You’ll be missed.

shame for susan lucci and former all my children fans who had her back on tv . It is show biz and cancellations come with the territory . Hope marc cherry comes up with a new concept , maybe ” Desperate networks ” revolving around the drama between 2 rival networks , the people who work there and their families at home .

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
