Chasing Life Spoilers For Season 1 Part 2

Published

on

Yes, the summer finale of Chasing Life just aired, but we already have scoop on what to expect when the second part of season 1 returns.

While most of the first half of the season and the finale focused on April’s cancer–discovery, acceptance, treatment– most of 1b will focus on the other characters in Aprils life.

Executive producer Sean Smith told Zap2It that we should definitely expect more Brenna and Greer despite her parent’s forbidding the girls from seeing each other. “When we pick up after our time jump, we do address their relationship. Greer is back, but it’s made complicated by their parents, which takes us to this place that we’re all really excited about — telling the story of Juliet and Juliet. Brenna’s such a rule-breaker and having her do that before sort of for evil instead of good, now it’s for the best of intentions while she tries to maintain a relationship with Greer despite their parents being against it.”

Brenna will also try to reconcile her friendship with Ford– although it might be a little harder than she thought. “We’ll see them try to reconcile. It’s a little bit deeper in to the 10. We really thought that we had lost the actress Dylan Gelula to ‘Jennifer Falls,’ but they ended up shooting across the street from us, so by the time we were coming back into production for these 10, we realized that she was available to us — and we missed her. We really wanted to get back into that friendship that Brenna and Ford had and how that plays into Brenna’s relationship with Greer, so we’ll see Kieran, we’ll see Ford and we’ll see Greer.”

Will Thomas Carver make a comeback? Quite possibly. Obviously he’s deceased so he won’t be rising from the dead, but he will be appearing in flashbacks to help guide the Natalie Ortiz story along. “We would love to go there. We didn’t have the opportunity in these back 10 episodes, but it’s something we would love — to understand Thomas Carver more and as we get more into his back story with Natalie and their relationship, I think it’s definitely fertile for much more of our series.”
Natalie Ortiz will be back in 1b in a “big way,” which I’m assuming means she’s going to be April’s donor. Raquel might’ve found some humanity when it came to April’s cancer but that doesn’t mean she’s going to stop from trying to excel at work. Sarah and Uncle George’s history will be explained more thoroughly. Will they get back together though? I think their cute but it might a little weird.

What about Leo Hendrie? Does he die? Does he live? You don’t have to wait till January to get the answer to that!

While the second part of season 1 premieres in January, the holiday episode will air during ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas that reveals Leo Hendrie’s fate. Did he die? Did he decide to remove the tumor?

“You definitely know the outcome in our holiday episode, which picks up right where we leave off in the finale.It was always kind of by design that we wanted to have this moment of fear and ambiguity over which way Leo is going. You’ll know the answer in December.”(I’m leaning towards he’s getting the tumor removed and him and April will fall madly in love. Suck it Dominick!)

Most of 1b is much more lighthearted. The holiday episode starts off after April’s month in the hospital. She’s going back to work and trying to enjoy her life and have fun, although she’s constantly wondering if the chemo was successful.

“How effective was the chemo in getting rid of her cancer but also keeping it away? She is out of the hospital. The next 10 after the Christmas episode will pick up with her first day returning to work and the fallout of everything with Dominick. She’ll try to find some normalcy while she’s waiting to see if her cancer returns,” said Sean.

Italia Ricci, who plays April, added, “It’s not quite as emotionally draining as the first half [of the season]. Almost all of the bad news has been pretty well dealt with, so the writers wanted to have April have a little more fun. She gets to try and live a normal life again. She goes out and gets wasted, she tries pot, she does really, really bad karaoke that I apologize for. [ laughs] She tries to live it up and they spend more time on everybody else’s stories, but there’s the undertone of her constantly worrying that she’ll relapse, and having to deal with still being around Dominick at work.”

CW Spring Schedule—’Walker’ Premiere Date Announced, But Where Is ‘Superman & Lois’?

Published

Walker Recap Season 3 Episode 8 Cry Uncle

The CW is gearing up for its spring TV season—and April showers are clearly going to be bringing back many highly-anticipated shows by fans. 

With plenty of CW originals going on the chopping block last year, two survivors, Walker and All American, finally have airdates for what will likely be their final seasons. 

All American Season 6 will be gracing TV screens on Monday, April 1 at 8/7c (no, this isn’t an April Fools joke), as Walker returns with Season 4 on Wednesday, April 3! 

Two surviving shows that are visibly absent from the lineup, however, are All American: Homecoming and Superman & Lois.

It’s unclear why the shows are being held back, but the hope is that they will now mark the network’s fall TV season.

As for new shows, Walker will be joined by crime drama Sight Unseen starring The Originals‘ Daniel Gillies. 

There’s also no word on a second season for The CW’s Sullivan’s Crossing starring Chad Michael Murray, Scott Patterson and Morgan Kohan, though it seems the series will be debuting in April in Canada, so fingers cross a fall return is possibly stateside. 

Here’s the full lineup for The CW spring 2024:

MONDAY, APRIL 1
8 pm All American (Season 6 premiere)
9 pm Lovers and Liars (series premiere)

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3
8 pm Walker (Season 4 premiere)
9 pm Sight Unseen (series premiere)

THURSDAY, APRIL 11

9 pm Lovers and Liars (series premiere encore/time slot premiere)

8 pm Penn & Teller: Fool Us
9 pm 100 Days to Indy (Season 2 premiere)

TUESDAY, APRIL 30
8 pm Police 24/7 (series premiere)
9 pm Hostage Rescue (series premiere)

It’s Happening—’Wizards of Waverly Place’ Is Getting a Sequel With Selena Gomez

Published

on

In the words of the Wizards of Waverly Place theme song—yes, please

Deadline exclusively reported that Disney is reviving its hit series, starring Selena Gomez. The network has ordered a pilot for a sequel to the teen show that ran from 2007 to 2012 on Disney Channel.

And there’s definitely something to be more excited about because it’s set to be executive-produced by original stars Gomez and on-screen brother David Henrie.

That’s not all! Gomez will reportedly guest star the pilot episode to reprise her iconic role as Alex Russo, while Henrie will be a series regular in the role of Justin Russo. 

Rounding out the new cast will be Janice LeAnn Brown (Billie), Alkalio Thiele (Roman Russo), and Mimi Gianopulos (Giada) who will play Justin’s wife and kids. 

The series, hailing from the writers and producers of Raven’s Home (another spinoff of an early Disney Channel show, That’s So Raven, that found a second life) Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas, will kick off with a mysterious incident as WizTech, where Justin works after surrendering his wizard powers to lead a human life. 

However, Billie soon arrives as a powerful young wizard seeking training and guidance, forcing Justin to get back to magic to save the Wizard World. 

Henrie confirmed the news on social media, sharing a photo of the pilot episode and captioning it, “The Russo’s are excited to become a part of your family, once again, but we’ve grown 😊 2024, the year magic comes back! 🪄”

Gomez also took to her Instagram Story to share a throwback photo with Henrie, writing, “We’re back.”

It’s unclear if other members of the original cast who played Justin’s parents and brother—Maria Canals-Barrera, David DeLuise, and Jake T. Austin—along with Alex’s bestie Jennifer Stone will reprise their roles. 

But this is something worthy of celebration for all the millennials who grew up with the Russo family!

‘Roswell, New Mexico’ Star Jeanine Mason Shares Sweet Update From Wedding

Roswell, New Mexico Season Premiere Review Steal My Sunshine Season 4 Episode 1

Jeanine Mason is officially off the market!

The Roswell, New Mexico star, who announced her engagement back in March 2023, shared sweet wedding photos from her recent nuptials.

The So You Think You Can Dance champion is said to have married husband Nicholas late last year. 

She shared two intimate photos on Instagram, one of the duo kissing after they seemingly exchanged “I do’s” as their guests looked on, along with a second shot of the two cozying up to each other on the subway.

“So many thank yous to come. But for now, just one to this unbelievable man. I love you husband,” the Upload actress captioned the post, which you can see right here.

Brides got more of the scoop on the newlyweds and their big day, noting that she and Nicholas met on a dating app and later exhaling vows on the stoop of their New York City home, which is also where he proposed. 

“We thought, how fun would it be to bring our favorite people along for a weekend in our lives here in New York City and to fill all our neighborhood spots with our families and friends,” she told the outlet. “We imagined, ‘What would our ideal weekend be with our favorite people?’ and then, ‘How do we want to be married?’ We really threw tradition or answering to any standard out the window.”

With that said, they told guests to go all out with their outfits, telling them to “do the MOST.” 

Nicholas serves a major in the Army Reserves following years of active duty, so he opted for his military dress uniform.

They also used the day as an opportunity to hire as many artists as they possibly could, including a violinist to perform during the ceremony, local artists for illustrations, and florists for flowers and arches.

As for the public transit choice—that’s how everyone got to the reception! 

“We always knew we’d take the subway to the reception but this was the perfect way to start the party,” she said. 

Since Mason is Cuban, there was also plenty of music and dancing on a “large dance floor,” and she even danced the salsa with her dad as it’s a “huge part of our culture and the way we celebrate. I think we made the Cubans proud.”

Her co-stars immediately jumped into the comment section to share their congratulations—warming the hearts of The CW fans all around—as Michael Vlamis wrote “VLAMIS GOT MARRIED!!!!” Tyler Blackburn shared a series of heart emojis, Heather Hemmens wrote “So beautiful! Congrats you two!” and Lily Cowles added, “So gorgeous! Felicitaciones mi amor.”

Congrats to the happy couple—we wish you all the best on this new journey!
