Susan Lucci Returning To 'Deadly Affairs' On Investigation Discovery

Susan Lucci will return with more stories of love gone wrong when "Deadly Affairs" comes back with new episodes in the summer of 2013.

“I have so enjoyed the real life stories of love triangles gone horribly wrong on 'Deadly Affairs' and can’t wait for next summer when we’ll pull the covers back on even more scandalous tales,” Lucci said in a statement.

Lucci joined "Deadly Affairs" as the host after ABC pulled the plug on "All My Children." The show tells real-life stories of when love goes "terribly wrong." Each episode features stories spliced with expert commentary from experts to first-person accounts from friends and family of the victims.

“Our first foray into the nighttime soap genre with 'Deadly Affairs' brought the perfect combination of intriguing storytelling and guilty pleasure that enticed a passionate fan base," Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery, said in a statement. "We are thrilled to continue our affair with Susan Lucci and Sirens Media for the second season of 'Deadly Affairs' and further tempt our viewers with more stories that prove real life is often stranger than fiction."

Lucci will also star in Lifetime's "Devious Maids,"
a primetime soap the network rescued from ABC when the network passed on the pilot.
