Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Original Programming & Production, VH1, spoke about the renewal saying,
“Our viewers’ love affair with ‘Single Ladies’ got even bigger this year, growing significantly from its successful first season and dominating its time slot on basic cable. 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.”
Congrats to the cast! And check out the Season Two finale Monday, August 27 at 9PM ET/PT on VH1. Season 3 kicks off in 2013.
