Mistresses is an American television drama series created by K.J. Steinberg and produced by ABC Studios. The show premiered on ABC in June 2013 and ran for four seasons until September 2016. It explores the romantic relationships and complexities of four women – Savannah (Alyssa Milano), April (Rochelle Aytes), Karen (Yunjin Kim), and Josslyn (Jes Macallan) – who are all best friends in Los Angeles.

The show is based on the British series of the same name, which was broadcast on the BBC from 2008 to 2010. However, unlike the original series, which focused on the lives of professional women in their thirties, the American remake is set in a more glamorous world of wealthy and successful women in their late thirties and early forties.

Savannah is a successful lawyer who is married to Harry (Brett Tucker), a chef, and they have a daughter. April is a single mother who owns a home decor shop and discovers shocking secrets about her late husband's past. Karen is a psychiatrist who has a complicated love life after having an affair with a terminally ill patient. Josslyn is Savannah's free-spirited younger sister, who works as a real estate agent and gets involved in a series of tumultuous relationships.

The show follows the four women as they navigate the ups and downs of their personal and professional lives, as well as their close friendships with each other. Mistresses deals with themes of love, betrayal, trust, infidelity, and the challenges of balancing work and family life, all while trying to be there for each other through thick and thin.

As the series progresses, the characters are faced with a series of unexpected and sometimes harrowing situations that test their loyalty to each other. Savannah's marriage is threatened by a series of affairs and a trip to paradise that tests their already fragile relationship. April discovers that her late husband was leading a double life with a mistress, leading her and her daughter into danger. Karen's involvement with a patient's family leads to tragedy and a crisis of conscience. And Josslyn's past catches up with her in the form of an ex-husband who seeks revenge.

In addition to the four leading ladies, the show features a number of notable supporting actors. Harry, Savannah's husband, is played by Brett Tucker, while April's ex-husband, Paul (Dondré Whitfield), is a recurring character. Karen's patient, Thomas Grey (John Heard), also plays a significant role, as do Luca Raines (Noam Jenkins) and Calista Raines (Jennifer Esposito), Josslyn's ex-husband and sister-in-law respectively.

Throughout the run of the series, Mistresses received mixed reviews from critics. Some praised the show's exploration of female friendship and the nuanced performances by the lead actresses, while others criticized it for its predictability and soap-opera-esque plot twists.

Despite its flaws, Mistresses remains a popular guilty pleasure for fans of romantic dramas. Its portrayal of four strong, independent women who support each other through thick and thin has resonated with viewers, and the show has developed a strong fan base over the years.

Overall, Mistresses is a compelling and addictive drama that explores the complexities of modern relationships and the challenges of balancing love, work, and family. The show's strong performances, complex characters, and high-stakes plot twists make it a must-watch for fans of romantic dramas.

Mistresses (2013) is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (52 episodes). The series first aired on June 3, 2013.
