One of summer’s guiltiest pleasures is no more.
ABC has decided to pull the plug on Mistresses, making the Season 4 finale, which aired on Sept. 6th, now a series finale.
Executive producer Rina Mimoun had told TVLine that she’d hoped for one more season to wrap things up, “There’d be some new hot messes in the mix, and we’d be moving back toward the kind of racy romp that Mistresses was when it began.”
Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen with Mistresses finding the end of the road long before the characters were ready to get out of the car.
That romp included everything from husbands back from the dead, affairs, accidents, threesomes, babies, and murder. The show was a soapy roller coaster ride from beginning to end.
The show was originally based on the U.K. series by the same name but took on a life all its own. »

Like a mid-’80s Sade jam, Mistresses has reliably given us the “sweetest taboo” for four straight* consecutive seasons.
