Loading video...

Chasing Life‘s holiday special (Dec. 9 at 9/8c on ABC Family) may not technically take place in December — it’s more of a Christmas-in-May kind of thing — but as you’ll see, that’s not making the cast’s spirits any less bright.

TVLine has an exclusive behind-the-scenes video from the festive shoot — take note of Italia Ricci‘s super-fancy hair — in which the stars reveal their personal holiday traditions. (Spoiler alert: Ricci’s kind of a Christmas nut.)

So, what can fans expect from Chasing Life‘s Christmas special? Let’s check in with executive producer Patrick Sean Smith for the scoop:

“When April realizes that she’s starting to lose her hair, the family decides to throw her a Christmas, which is her favorite holiday, while she’s still in the hospital and starting to struggle with this loss,” Smith tells TVLine.

      Hahaha! Exactly! Didn’t think I could love Italia more, but she’s got my heart with the dorky pop music! 😄

      And I could not be more excited to see the show again! They’ve basically spoiled that Leo goes for the surgery, but what will the outcome be? They’ve got Scott Michael Foster listed as being in some later episodes (I believe episode 18 is the last one I’ve seen him credited in.), but could it be that he’ll just be part of some dreams/hallucinations/flashbacks? And I hear the grandparents come in and stir up some drama, too, so that should be interesting!

        I wonder too why they spoiled the surgery. Seems strange. Once of his last episodes is titled”rest in peace”. Hmm. Nobody else is dying that we know of. Scott is very quiet about what is going to happen as is the rest of the cast. I have been trying to find some spoilers besides the photos but no luck.
