Bravo Gives Three-Season Renewal to 'Girlfriends’ Guide'

Bravo is tripling down on its scripted series Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, greenlighting the series for three additional seasons, said network officials.

 The Marti Noxon-produced series, which follows a 40-something self-help writer navigating through life as a single woman, will now run on Bravo through a fifth season, according to network officials. The season two finale of the series in February ranked as the most-watched episode of the season, generating 1.2 million viewers (Live+7).

“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," said Frances Berwick, President of Lifestyle Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment in a statement. “We are all excited to see what’s next for Abby and her friends.”
