If you are a fan of the comedy-drama series “Devious Maids,” then by now you should be asking yourself: “What will be of my Sunday nights?”

The season is over, and while you still have a week to figure out a new routine, main character “Marisol Deering” has spilled the beans on some of her favorite moments of the season.

Actress Ana Ortiz, who plays the leading role, talked about one of her favorite scenes from the new season which premiered on April 20 and concluded on Sunday July 13th.

“When Marisol and Evelyn get together, it’s just fun,” she said on Lifetime’s website, giving the example of a brunch scene she filmed with Rebecca Wisocky (Evelyn).

“Devious Maids,” produced by Mexican actress Eva Longoria, is Lifetime’s highest-rated television show, and according to AP, the series is riding high on a recent acknowledgment.

All five leads are nominated for Imagen Awards, to be presented Aug. 1 in Beverly Hills, which “recognize and reward positive portrayals of Latinos in all forms of media.”

Ortiz said to have these nominations from the Imagens is such a beautiful full-circle moment. “I’m so proud for all the girls. And I’m really proud of the show.”

But truth be told, the 43-year-old was quite shocked when she found out about her role in “Devious Maids.”

In fact, her initial reaction to the first script was: “Maids? It’s got to be maids?”

“The Latino community was the first out of the gate being really hard on us,” she said in a recent interview.

Ortiz also noted that Longoria has kept an eye on the scripts, assuring the five women are portrayed as three-dimensional characters and not Latino stereotypes.

She added, “Eva made a really good point about it. She said, ‘I’ll really be happy for the day when it’s just: Here’s a new show. It doesn’t have to be a new show with five women in the leads, or five Latinas in the leads. It’s just a new show.’”

Now that it’s all come to an end, fans wonder if a third season is in the works. After all, we’d love to see more of the fierce Latina cast composed by Ana Ortiz, Roselyn Sanchez, Dania Ramirez, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes.
