Roselyn Sanchez responds to Devious Maids cancellation

Roselyn Sanchez has thanked fans for their support following the cancellation of 'Devious Housemaids'.

The 43-year-old actress-and-singer has adored playing Carmen Luna in the comedy-drama series since it began in 2013, and following the news of the show's cancellation, she has taken to social media to express her gratitude to the programme's audience.

She tweeted: : "Playing CARMEN LUNA was one of the most amazing & rewarding experiences of my life... Thanks #DeviousMaids Devious Army for the & support (sic)."

Co-star Sharon Lawrence also took to Twitter to pay homage to the show.

She wrote: "Thx #DeviousMaids-only in ur delicious world would I have the distinct delight 2 date @Susan_Lucci #Oncewasnotenough (sic)."

The show followed the lives of a group of friends comprised of Carmen, Marisol (Ana Ortiz), Rosie (Dania Ramírez), and Zoila (Judy Reyes), who were brought closer by their jobs and life struggles.

'Devious Maids' was created by Marc Cherry, who worked with producer Eva Longoria previously on his show 'Desperate Housewives'.

The decision to axe 'Devious Maids' has come after the fourth series saw a drop in viewing figures. When it first aired, figures peaked at around three million, compared to less than one million by series four.

Despite these seemingly low ratings, the show attracted twice the viewership of Lifetime's only other original scripted drama 'UnReal', however, rave reviews from critics had kept the drama safe from the chop.

Eva doesn't seem to be letting the news get her down though, as she's recently been involved in directing an episode of 'Jane The Virgin', and says she loves to try her hand at almost every job on a film set.

Speaking about working on 'Devious Maids', she previously said: "I'm into everything - casting, actor contracts, locations, marketing and promotion, who we're going to kill, who we're going to keep - and I love it all. I'm very proud that we're Lifetime's No. 1 scripted show and that we help people escape into a world that's funny and colourful and glamorous.

"So many one-hour shows take themselves so seriously, it's depressing to watch TV sometimes. We're here for a good time!"
