Blind Item: Which Hit Drama Series is Plotting a Dramatic Change of Scenery in Season 2?

As any TV expert will tell you, the success or failure of any series comes down to the three L’s: Location, location, location!

OK, that mantra actually applies more to real estate than reel estate, but one should never underestimate the importance of choosing the right setting for a TV show.

Which brings us to our latest blind item…

Rumor has it that a hit freshman drama series is packing its bags and heading to a new hood in Season 2.

And not just any hood — the biggest hood in the world: New York City!

The move would herald a dramatic (and spoilery) storytelling shift for the show in question, which is why we’re withholding the title… for now.

Which show do you think will be mailing out a change of address card ahead of Season 2? Hit the comments with your theories! And for additional clues, follow me on Twitter via @MichaelAusiello

    Is it American Horror Story? I MUST know!

  3. Kat says:

    If it’s anything other than “Revenge”, I’d be shocked.

  8. Kris says:

    Revenge….but we already knew that one… now I’m actually curious xD

  9. Jackie says:

    Got to be Revenge! But why would that have spoilery storytelling…?

  10. Tom says:

    Quite clearly Revenge.

  11. Nick says:


  12. Rob says:

    I believe it’s Revenge. I think I read that somewhere…

  13. Carol says:

    Revenge is heading to NYC for the court case of the murder we see in the pilot.

    • lauren says:

      Nope — Emily van Camp said on TVline the other day that the murder trial would be held in the Hamptons. I’m curious now!

  14. Kate says:

    Revenge? I remember hearing that future seasons could be based on someone other than Emily’s revenge.

  15. Alicia says:


  16. Emily Thorne says:


  17. Newo says:

    An obvious answer would be Revenge, unless the entire run of the series is all going to take place over one summer in The Hamptons

  18. Cinders says:

    I am guessing it is going to be Revenge. Not far from the Hamptons.

  19. nicole says:

    This is Revenge. Definitely Revenge.

  20. Paulina says:

    Isn’t it obvious? American Horror Story

  21. Ribac says:

    Hm… I’ll go against obvious and absurd and go with Hart of Dixie…

  22. CeCe says:

    If it’s Revenge you’re talking about, there’s no mystery there since the creator and actors of the show have mentioned it many times… And I quote this from your own website “Producers explained at TCA that it won’t always be about Emily’s revenge, and that at some point “summer” will end and the action will relocate to New York City.”

    But then again this is too obvious… So might it be another “freshman hit”?? Unlikely…

  23. Jennifer says:


  24. Lea says:

    If it hadn’t been debated several times, I would have thought the show to be “Revenge”… Other than that, I have no ideas

  25. Amanda says:


  26. Laura says:

    This is old news…I read about this last week. It’s “Revenge” and they are moving the setting from the Hamptons to NYC itself…

  27. Lauren says:

    It has to be Revenge!

  28. Chris says:

    So its not Prison Break?

  29. mikicza says:


  30. Allie says:

    Well Ringer’s out for obvious reasons, so maybe Revenge?

  31. ivet says:

    Haven’t the creators of Revenge already announced that they will move to NY?

  32. Melissa says:

    I think its Revenge. I read an interview with Emily Van Camp that said this season would take place in the Hamptons, and then the next season would move to New York since the summer season would be over. If it continues, it could move back to the Hamptons for Season 3.

  33. ahs says:

    The only reason I don’t think this is about Revenge is because, well, we already know it’s happening. And it’s not all that spoilery if it is Revenge. That’s why my money is on American Horror Story, because it would be a HUGE shift for the show.

  34. suzan says:

    American Horror Story-new house,new family.

  35. Alyssa says:

    It’s obviously “Revenge”. I thought the show would do that even before this article. Those are the characters’ Summer homes. Unless they wanted to jump ahead to next Summer they’d have to move to the city.

  36. mhin says:

    I’ll go with Ribac: Hart of Dixie!

  37. Michael Schaeffer says:

    Revenge, definitely

  38. Meghan says:


  39. TomB says:

    It really makes sense if it’s revenge. They can’t stay in the hamptons year round and New York is the logical place for them all to go.

  40. Blair says:

    my bet is on Revenge – sunny Hampton summer is itching for a New York winter.

  41. Tim says:

    REVENGE–and they’d better shoot here in NYC!

  42. DH says:

    You’re missing the subtle clues that Ausiello loves to drop in his stories, primarily “hood” and “storytelling.” My money is on Once Upon a Time.

  43. kat says:

    Looks like worst or best blind item ever. If it’s Revenge, the producers spoke of that during the summer before the season even started, so worst ever. If its not Revenge, I guess Best Ever because everyone thinks its Revenge. But big props to Rob for guessing Game of Thrones, that was awesome….
