Based on the hit UK television series of the same name, “Mistresses” returns for a second season. The provocative and thrilling drama continues to focus on the scandalous lives of a sexy and sassy group of four girlfriends, each on their own path to self-discovery. After recent and dramatic events in their romantic relationships, best friends Savi, Joss, Karen and April find they need each other’s support more than ever as they attempt to rebuild and reinvent their lives.

It’s been eight months since Savi was in the horrific car accident that almost took her life. Her husband Harry, as well as Dominic, the father of her baby, are still dealing with the repercussions of the paternity revelation. Her feelings for both men affect her in ways she didn’t expect and it wasn’t easy for Savi to make her eventual choice. Now that she’s cheated death, she knows she must make the most of her second chance. As she heals both physically and emotionally, Savi goes back to work part time at the law firm. Things don’t go smoothly as she finds herself sharing an office with a stunning new hire, attorney Antonia “Toni” Ruiz (Rebeka Montoya, “General Hospital,” in a recurring role) who seems to have no sense of personal boundaries — and who appears to have more than a professional interest in Dom.

Joss, Savi’s free-spirited and capricious baby sister, has become the one who Savi starts to lean on, instead of the other way around like it was before the accident. Joss has left behind her job as a real estate agent to try her hand at a new career as a party planner to wealthy Angelenos. After finding love in all the wrong places, Joss is OK to live the single life and has no interest in a committed, long-term relationship. But that stance is tested when a handsome surgeon (Justin Hartley, “Revenge,” in a recurring role) becomes smitten with her and thinks he will be the one to change her mind.

Karen, a therapist, struggles to rebound from loss, both personal and professional. She had her own close encounter with death from the widow of the man with who she was having an affair. The man was a wealthy, married and terminally ill client to whom she had prescribed morphine. When his distraught son turned to her for solace, another complicated affair began. Karen was suspended from private practice. With the suspension lifted, she slowly begins building her private practice again after encountering a troubled, but intriguing patient, Anna Choi (Catherine Haena Kim in a recurring role). Surprisingly, her old work partner, Jacob (Matthew Del Negro) also reappears on the scene. She begins a journey to self-discovery filled with dark twists and revealing turns. Hopefully, she will come to understand why she continues to avoid the intimacy she wants so badly.

April is determined to move on after her presumably dead husband resurfaced with another woman and child. Her friends push her to break out of her comfort zone. They know she’s capable of getting back to expressing her artistic “mojo” and encourage her to do so. April’s life is already busy with raising her 11-year-old daughter, managing her home decorating shop, and trying to find Mr. Right! But when she meets a sexy, free-spirited artist (Ricky Whittle, “Single Ladies,” in a recurring role) – that mojo gets unleashed and she discovers a side to herself she never knew existed

When it comes to love, these four girlfriends find support and guidance with each other as they push the limits, test their boundaries and discover just how far they are prepared to go. They are willing to brave love’s turbulent journey, as well as its excitement, secrecy and betrayal, all the while bound by the complex relationships they’ve created.

“Mistresses” is executive-produced by Rina Mimoun, KJ Steinberg, Robert Sertner and Douglas Rae. The series is from ABC Studios.
