After getting dumped in spectacularly ugly fashion on live TV, Adam’s journey has come to an end: Everlasting will, indeed, relaunch with a new hot stud in the Lifetime drama’s upcoming run.
Still, “there might be” a chance that actor Freddie Stroma — who has since landed a part on Game of Thrones — will reprise his role as the bachelor who won over viewers and Rachel alike, co-creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro coyly hints to TVLine. (Stroma is not among Season 2’s five series regulars: Shiri Appleby, Constance Zimmer, Craig Bierko, Josh Kelly and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman.)
“We always look at the story from the Rachel/Quinn point of view and just ask, ‘Do they still have feelings in their heart? Is there still story left?'” Shapiro explains. “And definitely, Adam and Rachel did not resolve their story.”
Shapiro adds that she and executive producer Marti Noxon were not surprised by the audience’s passion for the character, even though he often did despicable things.
“We loved him when we cast him,” Shapiro says. “When he walked into the casting room, we were like, ‘Ooh.’ Freddie could not be a lovelier human being, so there’s no reason not to be in love with him.”
