Sad news for Twisted fans…. ABC Family has cancelled the twisted drama after just one season!
Since the summer finale earlier this year, fans have been sending “Save Twisted” petitions to the network. Social media was gaga over the show… but unfortunately, the decision was up to the ratings, which weren’t a powerhouse.
The premiere registered a mere 1.1 million viewers. By the 19th episode, they had dropped to 800,000. Twisted obviously didn’t make the cut, even though it was awesome and had so much potential!
I feel like we’re reliving Ravenswood all over again. What sucks about shows getting cut so out of the blue is that we never really get closure– or a proper ending. Twisted surrounded Danny Desai, a young man who was charged and arrested in the murder of his aunt Tara. After leaving juvi, he came back to his hometown where he was shunned and called a sociopath.
The final episodes revealed that Danny never killed his aunt– his father did. He took the blame to protect his dad, who later died. Except that he didn’t. He faked his own death, but really died when he fell of the cliff after an altercation with Danny, who was just protecting Jo. As for his crazy juvi-mate who was sort of dating the blonde… well, he was actually her half-brother. May or may not have been Danny’s too as I think that he was totally Vikram’s kid. How will I go on with my life not knowing the truth here?
News comes just a week after Avan Jogia, who played Danny, was cast in Spike TV’s miniseries “Tut”– an indication that things weren’t looking bright for the drama.
On the bright side, ABC Family did renew a plethora of shows including season 4 of “Switched at Birth”, season 6 and 7 of “Pretty Little Liars,” “The Fosters,” “Chasing Life,” “Melissa & Joey,” “Young & Hungry,” “Baby Daddy,” and “Mystery Girls”– with scripted pilots “Recovery Road,” “Stitchers,” and “Unstrung” in the works.
I’m still wondering how Mystery Girls got renewed but Twisted didn’t. Is there any justice in this world?
RIP Twisted… it was a true pleasure.

9 Shows That Need to Be On Your Radar for 2022
It was bittersweet saying goodbye to plenty of shows in 2021, but the plus side is that it made room for a handful of new shows that are gearing up for their highly-anticipated premieres.
There are plenty of shows that we’re excited about, but since it’s too much for anyone person to take in, we’ve condensed it to a list including the best of the best.
These are all the shows already garnering and generating buzz in 2022 — even before they’ve premiered.
Check out our list of shows (mostly new, but also a few final seasons) that should be on your radar:
How I Met Your Father – Hulu
Fans of How I Met Your Mother can re-live all the magic with a new group of friends with Hilary Duff at the helm. It’s also giving us some Younger vibes, so call it the best of both worlds.
The gender-reversed comedy premieres Tuesday, Jan. 18 with the first two episodes and then on a weekly basis.
House of the Dragon – HBO Max
Even if the final season of “Game of Thrones” left a bad taste in your mouth, don’t worry, the prequel is here to serve as a palate cleanser. Set 200 years before GOT, it’s based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood and focuses on the a civil war within House Targaryen. There is no premiere date as of yet, but that hasn’t stopped us from holding our breath.
BEL-AIR – Peacock
Revivals get a bad rap, but they aren’t always terrible. We’ve seen success with Saved by the Bell and Roswell, so fingers-crossed that Bel-Air, a comedy reimagined as an hour-long drama, will deliver in the same way. Will Smith has signed on for the project alongside the original creators. Jabari Banks stars as Will, a young man who moves into the gated mansion of Bel-Air in modern-day America, and explores plenty of conflicts and biases. It has been picked up for two seasons prior to the premiere on Sunday, Feb. 13 with the first two episodes and then weekly episodes.
Ozark – Netflix (Fourth and final season)
We’re crossing the finish line on Ozark this year, which is arguably a good thing because I don’t know how much more my nerves could handle. And the end is likely something the Byrde family definitely wants after getting too wrapped up in a messy situation with the Mexican cartel. Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, and Julia Gardner all make this series an intoxicating binge from beginning to end, even if the fourth and final season is split up into two parts with the first half arriving on Netflix on January 21.
Disney+ saw massive success with their Marvel shows, so it’s not a surprise that there’s a palpable excitement for She-Hulk starring Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany, a lawyer who has one small favor to ask: don’t make her angry. She’s the less-angry-but-just-as-green cousin of Bruce Banner, the Hulk, played by Mark Ruffalo, who is expected to make an appearance. No premiere date has been announced yet.
Inventing Anna – Netflix
Shonda Rhines is making her mark on Netflix with a series based on the true and shocking story of fashionable grifter Anna Delvey who faked being a German heiress to scam New York New Yorker’s into thinking she was a German heiress. Ozark’s secret weapon, Julia Gardner, works miracles as Delvey. The cast also stars Scandal’s Katie Lowes and Orange is the New Black’s Laverne Cox. This is a can’t miss limited series that hits Netflix on February 11.
Lord of the Rings – Amazon Prime
This is a big one for fans of the LOTR films! The television adaptation is a prequel set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and features an ensemble cast — both new and familiar — as they confront an evil unlike ever before in the Second Middle Age. It will make its mark on Amazon Prime on September 22.
Stranger Things – Netflix
We’ve paid our dues waiting to catch up with the residents of Hawkins, Indiana. Only this time, the action will take us to California and Soviet Russia (because, yes, Hopper is alive — spoiler) as the group of friends tries to stop the supernatural entities of the Upside Down once and for all. A premiere date (for the fourth and possible final season) announcement is likely on the horizon, but our money is on late spring or early summer. After all, we’ve waited long enough!
Obi-Wan Kenobi – Disney+
Disney and Star Wars go hand-in-hand, and with the success of the recent The Book of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian, it only makes sense that they would dive into Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi. The series is set a decade after the events of Star Wars: Episode III—Revenge of the Sith. In a real treat, Ewan McGregor will reprise the titular role, while Hayden Christensen will return as Darth Vader. No premiere date has been announced.
