Ready or not, here they come! And according to reports, the ladies of “Devious Maids” will be sweeping even more drama into our lives when they return to TV this June.
Deadline revealed that the upcoming installment of the hit Lifetime series, which is slated to premiere Monday, June 1, will kick off following the Season 2 finale cliffhanger. In “Look Back in Anger,” Rosie (Dania Ramirez) and Spence’s (Grant Show) wedding was interrupted by a shooting, caused by the gun-wielding and troubled character Ty (Gideon Glick).
Despite the finale concluding on a mysterious note, fans will learn in the Season 3 premiere who was injured -- and killed -- from the shoot out when the exciting Marc Cherry-created series returns. However, episode 1, titled “Awakenings,” will quickly jump four months into the future, revealing just how the characters have faired since the deadly incident. (Hint: It’s been pretty rough.)
Fans of the show got a peek at the upcoming drama in a promo video released by Lifetime. In the 30-second trailer, audiences can witness what looks like a kidnapping, the discovery of a severed leg and, of course, lots of sexy moments.
As if the soap opera wasn’t steamy enough, the former “Glee” actress Naya Rivera was cast in the dramedy as the recurring role of Blanca, a new maid who lands a job with what looks like a “picture-perfect Beverly Hills family.” But nothing is ever what is seems. At least, that’s what we’ve learned from the series. And soon Blanca will learn, too, when the newbie quickly discovers a “terrible secret” -- one that will alter her life forever, according to reports.
In the trailer, fans get a first look at Rivera’s character as she walks right in to the middle of a gruesome murder scene.
“Did you kill him?” audiences can later hear Blanca ask in the thrilling trailer.
While Naya was cast as a recurring character, viewers were forced to bid adieu to Mark Deklin, who joined the show in Season 2. Deadline reported Deklin, who played Nicholas, would not appear in the third season in addition to revealing that both Edy Ganem and Drew Van Acker (who portrayed Valentina and Remi) were also demoted from series regulars. However, the two will return for a few episodes in the upcoming installment. (Could they be the ones who were shot in the Season 2 finale?)
