We want season 3 of Mistresses on BBC America!


I've mentioned before on Hail Britannia my obsession with Mistresses, the soapy series about four friends with messy love lives that ran for two seasons on BBC America. In fact, that post gets hundreds of hits each month from people looking for news about its third season, supposedly in production with Joanna Lumley in a guest role as Katie's opinionated  mother.


I've had my fingers crossed that BBC America would be adding the final season to its lineup, so today I inquired and received this swift response from BBC America's publicity department:

"Thanks for your interest and support of Mistresses but currently (my emphasis) we don’t have any plans to air the third season."

Bummer! But I was heartened by the word "currently." That means things can change, right?

Ok, Mistresses fans -- it's time to let BBC America know that we want to see this third season in their programming. If you're one of the hundreds of fans who check my site each month for news about the series, please add your support below and I'll forward the link to my BBC America contacts. Thanks!

  4. Please air season 3 of Mistresses! I'd much rather watch that than an *American* sci-fi show that you're currently airing (that has been, and still is, shown ad nauseum on other *American* channels).

    If there is no plan to air the show please make it available online ASAP. I guarantee you I am not the only one who will watch the show online or on TV. So so many fans are waiting.

    Please, please make the show available... PLEASE!!!

  27. What is with BBC-A??? Why can't they be consistent???? They have to air the 3rd series of Mistresses! Star Trek . . . really????

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have been waiting (impatiently) for season 3 of Mistresses!!! Please air it on BBC America! It would be much appreciated!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. KMB -- lol on "Star Trek." I wonder if you're thinking of "Dr. Who," for which BBC America is always sending me promo material. There are plenty of Dr Who groupies out there, so someone's got to stand up for "Mistresses."

    Thank you all for voicing your wishes for Season 3. Let others know about my goal to get BBC America to listen to us -- I need more than 30 comments to get their attention. I get dozens and dozens of hits every day from surfers looking for info on this new season, and if they all just left a message of support, we'd have some muscle behind us. Spread the word!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Pls send season 3 or produce this if you havent done it already-
    I want to know how they will handle Tom. I love him and I hate him at the same time.

    I LOVE Mistresses!!! I do hope they will air the third season! I have been waiting for it and for Survivors. I hate when I get into a show and it gets cancelled. Do these boneheads not know that we LOVE these shows!?!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh please please please for the love of God air the 3rd season.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Please BBC show Series 3 of Mistresses it was such a good series and surely you can drop a few of the Top Gear episodes that you continuously show.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I loved Tom played by Thomas Lockyer in Series 2 and will be very disappointed if he is not in Series 3. He was the most attractive of all the men and I would love to see him in this latest series.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Please please bring Mistresses series 3 to BBC America!! I love this show, and you can't leave us hanging!

    ReplyDelete
  36. yes love the show, bring it back to NYC!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love Mistresses ! I have been hooked since the series started I've heard season 3 starts tomorrow night on BBC1 will it also air on BBCA? I really miss those 4 girls their lives are scandalous... I love it

    ReplyDelete
  38. As a big USA fan, I would love to see the third season of Mistresses.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yep, I have been waiting as well. A couple of weeks ago, BBC
    America aired almost a whole day of Mistresses repeats during working hours on a weekday!! I thought that might have signaled that we would start seeing the new series soon, but Nothing!!! Since it is the very last season, please allow us to see the last of it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. What a disappointment, Tom played by Thomas Lockyer isn't in this latest series, they could easily have included him as it would have been simple to involve him in Siobhan's storyline. He was the handsomest of the men.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Please bring Mistresses back to BBC America!! I'm desperately hooked.

    ReplyDelete
  42. YES-PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give us the 3rd season of Mistresses in the USA!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Come on BBC America....Your ratings will rise if you bring back the Mistresses!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Please bring it back! It's one of the best shows EVER!

    ReplyDelete
  47. How in heaven's name can you not be adding Mistresses in your lineup, yet continue to show Ramsey re-runs from 4-5-6 years ago??? America adored Mistresses. BBC America, give us what we want!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I have missed watching the ladies!! I want, I need, I HAVE to have the third season of Mistresses shown on BBC America! I started watching at the beginning of Season 2 and was hooked immediately. You just can't do this to us !! Please bring the Mistresses back to BBC America!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'm so confused. BBC does not do a good job of documenting how to watch Mistresses. I'm reading that Season 3 was aired recently, but can't find a way to watch the episodes online or what channel to order to watch via Satellite, nor find more than a synopsis of the new airings (which I don't want to read to spoil it!). Where can we watch the final episodes in America? This is SO frustrating, but I love the show so I keep trying to find out info. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  50. yes, DEFINITELY!! I moved back from London to NYC earlier this year and cannot believe BBC-A has no plans to air such a hit show!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. YES!!!!! Watching and waiting for the 3rd season. Sigh....

    ReplyDelete
  52. Please bring us season 3...we need closure for the characters!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Please bring this show back. i was sadden to hear that the show was in its final and then was just devasted to hear that BBC was NOT going to air it............please bring us season 3.

    ReplyDelete
  54. BBC America is infamous for starting something and not finishing it, you can't do that! Finish up the series, it's 4 episodes for crying out loud!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I thought BBC America showed British shows...so what's the problem in showing season 3...you put the first 2 on with no problem...finish what you started...you've got us hooked & now you expect us to not be bothered that your not going to finish the show...put the last season on please & put this Brit women & many others that watch BBC America out of our misery...thanks!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Come on BBC - this show has lots of fans !!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Please let us have our mistesses! We need them! Us YANKS are so used to having 20-30 episodes of our favorite show each year, it's already a challenge just to have the 10-12 you produce at a time! PLEASE!

  78. Just stumbled upon this series while browsing through Netflix. I became completely hooked and have watched the entire series except the last 3 episodes which I am saving. I am so sad to read that 3 episodes is all that I have left! How amazing it would be to experience more of these womens lives. It literally helped fill the void left from Sex and the City here in the states and more episodes are needed!

    ReplyDelete
  79. This show was bar-none my favorite out of all the BBC programming. I do enjoy Ramsey, but I've seen them all. And Top Gear? Not my thing. Please, bring the ladies with their wonderfly tortured love lives back! I adored the show, and wait anxiously for it's return.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Really?? So basically the British teased us, Americans!! They introduce the characters, the plot, the storyline and developments, they make us fall in love with every single fiber of what Mistresses represents and then leave us hanging!! Why, I ask? Aboslutely, nothing could plainly justify that. BBC America links us to your world, so why not use the channel to finish what you started. Are these reviews not enough? Mistresses, Season 1 & 2 was like a life line for me, at a time in my life when my surroundings were too mundane and repetive to endure. Mistresses was so addicting, that my heart would palpitate for the mere essence of it's existence. The episodes kept me salivating for more at every turn. While morality is questionable, the individuality of all characters makes them human and identifiable. In life, we don't walk away, in the middle of something just because of nothingness; not giving us closure, is like telling us to accept the nothingness. How can we possibly accept nothing, when it's existence is an illusion?? However, Mistresses and it's end does exist, therefore we can not take no for an answer.
    Signed, still salivating. ;)

  81. OMG!!! I recently found this show on iTunes and I'm hooked!!!! please, please, pleeeeeeeeeeease make series 3 available to your loyal fans!!!! We need to know what happens to our ladies!!!!

  82. BBC America:

    I have just heard that you will not be airing the 3rd installment of Mistresses, I am extremely disappointed. This is a great show and it I cannot believe that you will not be adding it to your schedule.

    Also, I cannot for the life of me understand why, with all of the wonderful British movies and T.V. show/series you manage to put the worst t.v shows on and replay them all day. We want to see good quality British movies and British television. Not all these reality shows that are not remotely entertaining. With the richness of movies and series that you could choose from, you have managed to pick the absolute worst crap to but on BBC America. You need to make some changes, so that we here in American can enjoy the best of what Britain has to offer. I have bee completely dissatisfied with your programing!

    Air shows like Mistresses, Doc Martin, M-I 5, Cranford and Return to Cranford, Jane Austin's work, period movies, British movies, Foyle's War, BBC Mini-Series, and entertaining t.v. series.

    I have to say your current programming is REALLY SAD!

  83. I have been waiting for Season 3 as well. I watched it on BBC America and rediscovered it on Netflix and am desperate for the final installment!!!!!! Please bring it to BBC America!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I agree with Jewery. Current programming (Star Trek????? ) is very lame... Love the Tudors though..

    ReplyDelete
  85. Wow! Just finished seasons 1&2 and was so looking forwar to more of this show. Any news on when/if season 3 will be aired or coming to DVD?

    ReplyDelete
  86. please air season 3, i love the show. Its the best series on tv at the moment......

    ReplyDelete
  87. I LOVE THE TV SHOW, MISTRESSES--PLEASE CONTINUE!!

    ReplyDelete
  88. PLEASE air season 3 of Mistresses in the US on BBC....every week I check just in case, we loved it here. When you start to air a program and then you get us addicted and then stop it's heart breaking, my Friday nights are not the same.
    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  89. please--please as everyone else i keep checking and checking somebody do something!!!

    ReplyDelete
  90. PLEASE air the Mitresses final series! BBC America was my 'go-to' channel- now it is pitiful! Unless you are a Dr Who fan, there is nothing to watch. With so much good British drama and culture- why do we see only sci-fi? One can only take so much Top Gear-although I like the show. Please bring back some of that greatness from across the pond.......

    ReplyDelete
  91. Love it! Want to see third season!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Please issue the DVDs for Season 3 in the U.S.!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Come on, BBC America! You've got to be kidding. Give us what we want now, damn it. We want Season 3 of Mistresses. It's a handful of episodes to a show you got us hooked on (then yanked away). You'll still have plenty of time to show all the stuff we couldn't care less about. Promise. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I want Mistresses season 3! at least release the DVD'S to us.
