There’s still three seasons to air, but Bravo has preemptively cancelled Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, with Season 5 to be the last, per THR:
The series, which is produced in-house by Universal Cable Productions, will film 19 more episodes all at once over the course of the next eight to nine months in Vancouver. Bravo will then air them as three distinct seasons with shortened windows in between. A seven-episode third season will be followed by six-episode fourth and fifth seasons.
In April, the cable network handed the comedy-drama a huge 3-season renewal through Season 5, leaving open the possibility of a sixth season further down the line.
However, the network has now decided that Season 5 will also be the last in the show’s run, confirming Girlfriends‘ cancellation.
UCP chief content officer Jeff Wachtel told the publication:
“In today’s world, it’s all about flexibility, partnership and creating the best experience and the most valuable asset for everyone involved. Doing this three-season pickup allows for Bravo to plan in the future. … There are three separate times over the next couple of years where they’ll be able to drive ratings and that branding story.”
