Fans of Queen Latifah-backed hit Single Ladies, rejoice: VH1 has renewed the series for a third season in the United States.
Single Ladies is set to end the current season on 27 August, after averaging 3.2 million total viewers during premieres plus first encores. That's up 10% from season 1. So, it continues to be basic cable's No. 1 ad-supported regularly scheduled scripted show among women 18-49 over the course of the summer.
Season 3 is set to premiere later in 2013.
As VH1 puts it, Single Ladies follows three best friends navigating the dating world in Atlanta, "at the nexus of fashion, music and celebrity."
"Our viewers' love affair with Single Ladies got even bigger this year, growing significantly from its successful first season and dominating its timeslot on basic cable," said Jeff Olde, executive vice president of original programming and production at VH1. "We're extremely happy that we'll be able to give the audience another great season of the series and its honest, current take on love, dating and female friendship."
