You know its been almost 6 months since season one of USA’s Playing House ended it’s first season run and until now, there had been no news, yes NO news, on whether or not our sassy and brassy friends and housemates Emma Crawford (Jessica St. Clair) and Maggie Caruso (Lennon Parham) were going to be gracing our screens again.
In a Christmas miracle, USA network announced Playing House will in fact be returning for an 8 episode run season 2 in 2015!
And we all cheered and clapped and drank wine and smiled!
The well received, but low rated comedy is only one of three scripted comedies to remain on the network after it ‘cleaned house’ of original scripted comedies. The news of the show’s renewal comes on the back of the networks new approach to television in 2015 which will see USA focus on VOD (Video on demand) platforms first then air it on television, a move which, it seems, saved Playing House. The show is being used a guinea pig to test how VOD views affect live to air ratings.
VOD, Guinea pigs, cleaning house….I don’t care as it means we get our girls back for another 8 episodes of crazy! And if Lennon and Jessica were to ever read this…..please bring back Bird Bones!
Playing House Season 2 is set for a mid 2105 return!
