‘Mistresses’ Season 3 renewal still uncertain; Producers share massive spoilers on Joss, Harry and Savi, Alyssa Milano after baby on show return
ABC has yet to renew the highly-addictive drama series "Mistresses," but executive producers Rina Mimoun and K.J. Steinberg appeared to have plans already for the characters on the show should it get the greenlight for Season 3.
In an interview with Zap2it, Mimoun and Steinberg wanted to explore the impact of Joss' (Jes McCallan) decision to choose Harry (Brett Tucker) despite him being married to Savi (Alyssa Milano). In the show's Season 2 ender, Joss runs to Harry on the beach and ended up having an intimate moment together.
Mimoun said, "It'll pick right back up in that moment. I wouldn't say that it's going to pick up with Savi walking in on it, necessarily. In Season 3, should there be one, we would pick up in the same moment. And viewers will just have to suspend their disbelief because Alyssa [Milano] will be a bit smaller, sans baby [ laughs]."
"Given that [Savi's] been a character who's been largely in control of every relationship she's had on the show...I think that the betrayal of Joss and Harry is going to destroy her, so we're going to see something from her we've never seen before," Steinberg added.
Steinberg and Mimoun hinted that Savi's eventual run-in on Joss and Harry's affair could have her ended up in a similar predicament with two men - a love triangle with Dom (Jason George) and Zack (Jason Gerhardt).
Steinberg said, "Zack was a great instigator for her and a great journeyman, sort of wingman for her journey this season. But that friendship is over. He really helped her come to terms with a to of the lies that she was telling herself and discovering parts of herself she needed to figure out where her heart really lies. In the finale, she truly believes that her heart lies with Harry."
Mimoun was also quick to add, saying "Dom's love for her does not wane. He will try to get her back and he will try to remain in her life. We adore Jason George and there is still so much left to be played with him."
Carter Matt warns fans not to set their hopes too high regarding the renewal of the show because of its low ratings last year. On the other hand, the site is suggesting that ABC toys on the idea of renewing the show for another season and focus on the untapped Internet market, as the show is surprisingly popular online thanks to its juicy plotline. Moreover, both Steinberg and Mimoun are optimistic for a Season 3 since they envisioned the show to explore the complication of the relationships in the show more.
"We would never have written this to be an ending to the series. We architected it for a Season 3. And we have hope that we will get one so we can continue to tell these stories and play out these dramas," Steinberg told TVLine in a separate interview.
