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.

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 .

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
