The cliffhanger will be paid off. ABC has renewed Mistresses for a fourth season to air summer 2016.
However, the soapy serial will be a player down when it returns next year. Per Deadline, Jennifer Esposito, who joined the lead cast in Season 3, succeeding original co-star Alyssa Milano, will not return in Season 4.
The network has yet to officially determine the fate of supernatural drama The Whispers, which remains in the outer reaches of limbo.
