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.

Sophia Bush Reveals Challenges of Working With Ex Chad Michael Murray on ‘One Tree Hill’ After Divorce
Sophia Bush may have just gotten married, but she’s reflecting on a past, high-profile relationship on the Drama Queens podcast.
Specifically, her marriage and divorce from One Tree Hill co-star, Chad Michael Murray.
While chatting with her former co-stars, Bethany Joy Lenz and Hilarie Burton—who are all too familiar with what went down between Biush and Murray—the actress opened up about the hardships of having to work on set after the couple divorced in 2006. They got engaged in 2004 and married in 2005.
In fact, Bush said it was even more difficult because their characters, Brooke Davis and Lucas Scott, started dating around the same time their relationship was hitting a rough patch that it would never bounce back from.
“Not for nothing, you were going through a breakup with the person that you were playing a romance opposite of,” Joy Lenz said.
“And regardless of what all those circumstances were, that’s incredibly difficult — emotionally to be able to be vulnerable and be there in that moment. There’s lots of actors who have done that — who’ve done movies and TV shows and things, they date their costar or whatever, it doesn’t work out. But the fact that you were able to just be that raw and open and vulnerable, it’s a real credit to you as an artist. You put your art in front of everybody and just were like, ‘Look, this is it. I’m just sharing my heart and here we are’. I thought it was really beautiful,” she said.
Bush gave a very mature answer, explaining that regardless of what was going on in her personal life, she prioritized the show and the character that resonated with so many young women.
“People can call it whatever they want. They can say it’s strength, they can say it’s pride, they can say its professionalism — you can put a positive or a negative skew on I, but I was always going to put Brooke Davis ahead of everybody and everything else. Nothing mattered to me but being honest for her,” she explained.
The actress, who recently wed Grant Hughes in a stunning and poignant Oklahoma wedding, previously refused to speak about her marriage to Murray as she didn’t want her career to be defined by a relationship.
“I refuse to let that one relationship define me, which is why I’ve done my best to avoid discussing it for 10 years,” she began, while acknowledging that it was a “massive event” in her life.
She added: “The trauma of it was amplified by how public it became, which was incredibly foreign and bizarre to a girl who’d been just another college kid 24 months before her life blew up.”
