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

Get More: Blind Item, News

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

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

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

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

  • Quite clearly Revenge.

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

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

    Comment by Carol – December 12, 2011 11:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Nope — Emily van Camp said on TVline the other day that the murder trial would be held in the Hamptons. I’m curious now!

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

  • Revenge!

    Comment by Emily Thorne – December 12, 2011 11:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • 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

    Comment by Newo – December 12, 2011 11:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I am guessing it is going to be Revenge. Not far from the Hamptons.

    Comment by Cinders – December 12, 2011 11:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • This is Revenge. Definitely Revenge.

    Comment by nicole – December 12, 2011 11:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Isn’t it obvious? American Horror Story

    Comment by Paulina – December 12, 2011 11:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Hm… I’ll go against obvious and absurd and go with Hart of Dixie…

    Comment by Ribac – December 12, 2011 11:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Haha, I was just thinking that! Talk about your “dramatic storytelling shift” :)

      Comment by Grace – December 12, 2011 01:42 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • 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…

    • Perhaps this doesn’t qualify as a blind item then?

      Comment by Lina – December 12, 2011 03:08 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Revenge.

    Comment by Jennifer – December 12, 2011 11:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • If it hadn’t been debated several times, I would have thought the show to be “Revenge”… Other than that, I have no ideas

    Comment by Amanda – December 12, 2011 11:18 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • 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…

  • It has to be Revenge!

    • I agree. You know how easy it would be for those creatures to blend in on a Saturday night? From my personal experience I think I may be a Grimm :)

  • Revenge. Period.

  • Revenge!

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

    Comment by Allie – December 12, 2011 11:19 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Haven’t the creators of Revenge already announced that they will move to NY?

    Comment by ivet – December 12, 2011 11:19 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • 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.

    Comment by Kate – December 12, 2011 11:20 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • 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.

  • American Horror Story-new house,new family.

    Comment by suzan – December 12, 2011 11:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • 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.

  • Revenge, definitely

  • REVENGE!!!!!

    Comment by Meghan – December 12, 2011 11:22 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • 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.

    Comment by TomB – December 12, 2011 11:22 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • my bet is on Revenge – sunny Hampton summer is itching for a New York winter.

    Comment by Blair – December 12, 2011 11:23 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • REVENGE–and they’d better shoot here in NYC!

  • 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.

    Comment by DH – December 12, 2011 11:23 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • 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….
