US drama series Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce will finish at Season 5 -despite recent news of a three season renewal.
It will film 19 more episodes, to air as three distinct seasons. A seven-episode third season will be followed by six-episode fourth and fifth seasons.
The series follows America’s favourite self-help book author and guru Abby McCarthy (Lisa Edelstein) as a single woman in her 40s in Los Angeles.
“In today’s world, it’s all about flexibility, partnership and creating the best experience and the most valuable asset for everyone involved,” chief content officer of NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment and president of UCP Jeff Wachtel told the Hollywood Reporter. “Doing this three-season pickup allows for Bravo to plan in the future. … There are three separate times over the next couple of years where they’ll be able to drive ratings and that branding story.”
Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce screens in Australia on Presto.
