Good news for fans of The Client List; Lifetime has renewed the series for a second season after only a month on the air. Not only that, but it will be a longer season as well, with 15 episodes, 5 more than we'll get in the first season. The strong ratings clearly have Lifetime moving fast to keep the show going.
The Client List has quickly become a strong performer for Lifetime, premiering to ratings they haven’t seen since Drop Dead Diva debuted in 2009. It’s held steady in the rating since, likely helped along by marketing images centered on Jennifer Love Hewitt’s impressive cleavage. Based on a TV movie that also starred Hewitt, The Client List follows a single mom who takes a job at a massage parlor only to discover that it’s that special kind of massage parlor. You know, the happy-ending kind. The newly minted single mom hops on board and proceeds to juggle a double life as a mom living a conservative life and a somewhat less conservative occupation.
The series also stars Cybill Shepard as Hewitt’s mother, along with Loretta Devine and Colin Egglesfield. They’ve already started lining up some big name guest stars too, such as Betty White, and I suspect we’ll be seeing more of that as the series continues . The first season finale is set to air on June 10th, but with today’s news via Deadline, fans of the show can start looking forward to season 2. No word yet on when that will premiere.
