'Mistresses' Premiere Date, 'Bachelorette' Return Scheduled

The "Mistresses" premiere date has been announced! The ABC drama will make its debut on Monday, May 27 on ABC.

"Mistresses" will air Mondays at 10 p.m. after "Bachelorette." "The Bachelorette" premieres Monday, May 20 at 9 p.m. and moves to 8 p.m. on May 27. ABC will announce the new "Bachelorette" during "The Bachelor: After the Final Rose" airing live on Monday, March 11 at 10:01 p.m.

"Mistresses" stars Alyssa Milano, Yunjin Kim, Rochelle Aytes and Jes Macallan as a group of girlfriends find their way through life. The series is based on the UK drama of the same name.

In June, multiple editors of HuffPost TV rated "Mistresses" with a "DVR It."

"After that soft core porn excuse for a trailer (cheesy clips, bad lighting and all), I was dreading this one, but was pleasantly surprised," HuffPost's Maggie Furlong wrote. "These four women are like the modern-day L.A. version of 'Sex and the City' -- and, thankfully, there's nothing desperate or housewife-y about them."

ABC's official description:

Based on the hit UK television series of the same name, "Mistresses" is a provocative and thrilling drama about the scandalous lives of a sexy and sassy group of four girlfriends, each on her own path to self-discovery: Savannah ("Savi"), a successful career woman working toward the next phase in her life, both professionally and personally; Savi's free-spirited and capricious baby sister, Josslyn; their friends April, a recent widow and mother of a ten-year-old daughter, and Karen, a therapist with her own thriving practice. These four friends find support and guidance with each other as they brave their turbulent journeys and life's storms of excitement, secrecy and betrayal, all the while bound by the complex relationships they've created.
