SILVER SPRING, Md., Nov. 12 (UPI) -- Investigation Discovery says it has ordered a second season of its reality show "Deadly Affairs," with U.S. actress Susan Lucci to return as host.

The series will "continue to deliver stories of passionate love affairs turned crimes of passion" when it premieres next summer, the network said in a news release.

"Our first foray into the nighttime soap genre with 'Deadly Affairs' brought the perfect combination of intriguing storytelling and guilty pleasure that enticed a passionate fan base," Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery, said in a statement Monday. "We are thrilled to continue our affair with Susan Lucci and Sirens Media for the second season of 'Deadly Affairs' and further tempt our viewers with more stories that prove real life is often stranger than fiction."

"I have so enjoyed the real-life stories of love triangles gone horribly wrong on 'Deadly Affairs' and can't wait for next summer when we'll pull the covers back on even more scandalous tales," said Lucci, former star of the daytime soap opera "All My Children."
