  • Don’t know why ABC Family left out the premiere dates of The Lying Game and of course Bunheads? :-(

    Comment by Tran – March 11, 2013 11:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • because they have not been renewed yet (and in the case of Bunheads, may not be renewed)

  • The chances of Bunheads coming back for a second season seems very unlikely at this point and The Lying Game,if renewed for additional episodes or another season wouldn’t be part of ABCF Summer lineup. The earlier TLG would come back would be in the Fall/Winter.

    • That’s why Bunheads is created by the same team that brought us Gilmore Girls and I know ABC Family is already airing reruns on the weekdays (Mondays-Fridays).

      • Jade was correct– it would be the 2nd season. The winter run that just wrapped up was season 1B. ABC Family and their wacky scheduling!

  • The Lying game doesn’t do too bad. Does it? Don’t really follow the ratings ALL the time. I’m sure they’ll at least give it the back 10 order and then end it like that. I feel that its a 2 season show just because it doesn’t have as much of a story now. I mean everyone except Kristin knows about the twins. What else is there. Whoever murdered Derek murdered Theresa. That person has a lot to hide. There are only three people who have stuff to hide. Alec, The twins father, (I forget the shmucks name) and Rebecca. I feel they can wrap that up in ten eps and just call it a day. Let Emma and Sutton have their happy ending.

      • It IS the Women of the Other World character Elena!! The show is based on the book! :)

        • It is the Women of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong. The first book Bitten focusing on Elena is being turned into a tv show. I am so excited as this is one of my favorite series.

  • So glad that “Switched at Birth” is resuming a summer schedule. It fits there better than it fits during the network season.

  • Dichen needs another regular role.Guest starring is choppy work.She was pretty great on Being Human and Dollhouse.

  • Are you sure it’s the Queen of Hearts? The press release says it will be The Queen is Dead that will be the enhanced episode.

    • They made an error in the original press release; it is, in fact, “Queen of Hearts.” — Mgmt.

  • I thought that Tuesday is the midseason finale for season 2 of Lying Game? I was looking online to see how many episodes were ordered when they renewed it for season 2 but I couldn’t find anything that said the number of episodes. does anyone know?

    Comment by Elyse – March 11, 2013 02:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • They ordered 10 episodes to The Lying Game. We just don’t know if it will be renewed or not. And yes tomorrow is the midseason finale.

      Comment by Robert – March 11, 2013 02:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • if they ordered only 10 then wouldn’t it be the finale not the midseason finale since there have already been 10 episodes in season 2? haha I’m obviously in denial and I’m trying to convince myself it will definitely be back for at least 10 more episodes.

        Comment by Elyse – March 11, 2013 05:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Yeah they just order 10, see hoe they do and then order another 10. So im sure (hopefully) it. will be back
