As an avid fan of Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, I couldn’t be more pleased to bring you the fantastic news that Bravo Media is giving the show a second season, comprised of 13 episodes. As I said in my review of the series premiere, “GG2D is full of sharp, witty dialogue, great acting, is funny when it needs to be, and dramatic when necessary. It’s also sexy, intelligent, and dark. GG2D is the complete package; you’ll be missing out on something special if you don’t have this new dramedy on your list of appointment TV.” Looks like I was right!
Check out Bravo’s official press release below for all the deets. And don’t forget to tune in to next week’s episode, “Rule #46: Keep The Holidays Low Key,” Tuesday, February 10, 2015 at 10:00 pm ET/PT, only on Bravo.
