I love the fall season lineups when all the biggest networks release their new shows and returning stars.
On the CW, the host of The Vampire Dairies which is probably my number one favourite show on at the moment – this is discounting all the gems from HBO that I watch when they are released on DVD – one of the three new shows set to premier in September comes from the same mind and executive producer that developed the total awesomeness of all the addictive vampire drama. Kevin Williamson is bringing another of L.J. Smith’s imaginative stories to viewers.
The Secret Circle has been slated for the Thursday spot (a good TV night!) and will most likely be shown right after The Vampire Diaries.
Here is the description of the new series. I haven’t read the books, (I didn’t read the Vampire Diaries either...but the show is for sure better! I’ve heard this from the lips of people who have watched the show, but even still, can you really beat seeing Damon Salvatore live on your screen each Thursday night? I think not.) but the preview, also below, has me intrigued.
Set in the fictional town of Chance Harbor, Washington the series will follow a California teenager who learns that she comes from a family of withces
Cassie Blake was a happy, normal teenage girl - until her mother Amelia dies in what appears to be a tragic accidental fire. Orphaned and deeply saddened, Cassie moves in with her warm and loving grandmother Jane in the beautiful small town of Chance Harbor, Washington - the town her mother left so many years before - where the residents seem to know more about Cassie than she does about herself. As Cassie gets to know her high school classmates, including sweet-natured Diana and her handsome boyfriend Adam, brooding loner Nick, mean-girl Faye and her sidekick Melissa, strange and frightening things begin to happen. When her new friends explain that they are all descended from powerful witches, and they've been waiting for Cassie to join them and complete a new generation of the Secret Circle, Cassie refuses to believe them - until Adam shows her how to unlock her incredible magical powers. But it's not until Cassie discovers a message from her mother in an old leather-bound book of spells hidden in her mother's childhood bedroom, that she understands her true and dangerous destiny. What Cassie and the others don't yet know is that darker powers are at play, powers that might be linked to the adults in the town, including Diana's father and Faye's mother - and that Cassie's mother's death might not have been an accident.
If this show is anything like the fast-paced, super charged, never a dull moment, full of intrigue and leave you on the edge of your seat, biting your finger nails moments as The Vampire Dairies than it’s sure to be a star.
