Lifetime has renewed Devious Maids for a thirteen-episode second season, the network announced today. The show, from Desperate Housewives' Marc Cherry, debuted to so-so numbers in June but climbed to 2.7 million viewers this past week, topping, for example, Real Housewives of New Jersey in total viewers. Devious will return next year. So far the show hasn't covered the stash of Nazi paraphernalia that's in the Spanish-language original, but maybe soon.
