Season 2 of The Vampire Diaries has gotten off to a great start!  Katherine’s (Nina Dobrev) arrival has been causing a lot of chaos in Mystic Falls (as it should)!  Last weekend, at NY Comic Con, I was able to meet the cast and get their autographs.  Prior to the autograph signing, they held a panel where producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec let it slip that one of the main cast members would be getting killed off this season…and it more than likely would have been one of the actors at the panel.  Attending the panel and autograph signing were Zach Roerig (Matt), Steven R. McQueen (Jeremy), Katerina Graham (Bonnie), and Sara Canning (Aunt Jenna).  They promised that this time, the character would be dead dead, not dead and wearing a life saving ring like Jeremy at the beginning of this season.  Who do you think it will be?

In other Vampire Diaries news, expect Bonnie to get a storyline this year!  WOO HOO!  The show recently cast a love interest for her as well as the father of said love interest.  Finally, something Bonnie can do other than whine and piss me off.  🙂

Finally, Lauren Cohan has been cast as Rose.  Rose will get involved with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and is said to be a dark vampire.  Hmmm…that could be interesting.

It’s going to be a really exciting season on Vampire Diaries!

Vampire Diaries Poster

This new The Vampire Diaries poster has been making its rounds around the net.  Pretty hot!  It features the 3 main stars of the series: Paul Wesley as Stefan, Nina Dobrev as Elena, and Ian Somerhalder as Damon.  Also, the character of Tyler Stratton has been cast.  He’ll be played by none other than Michael Trevino, who played Ozzie during the first season of the new 90210.

Finally, here are some ads for the new series.

This show looks really promising, and the fact that Kevin Williamson (Dawson’s Creek and Scream) is the brains behind it makes me really excited!  Again, I got this information from TV Fanatic.  Hope you all enjoy!

And there is the promo poster for the first season of The Vampire Diaries!  Plus a partial cast photo of the 3 leads of the show!  Enjoy!!!

It has been confirmed that the new “Melrose Place” will air right after “90210” on Tuesday nights here in the states.  WOO HOO!!!!!  I’m really excited that we’ll have them on back to back.  It’s also been hinted that there may be a few crossovers between the two shows, which also makes me VERY excited!  The CW’s website has added a “Melrose Place” section that includes the new commercial for the series as well as this cast photo:

Also, Shaun Sipos (who originally was supposed to be the son of Jake Hanson (Grant Show), is now going to be playing David Breck (the son of Michael Mancini).  I wonder who David’s mother will be?  Could it be Jane (Josie Bissett)?  Kimberly (Marcia Cross)?  Meghan (Kelly Rutherford)?  Sydney (Laura Leighton)?  My guess is this.  I bet that David turns out to be Michael and Sydney’s son.  I’m thinking that this will explain Syd’s apparent death during her and Craig’s (David Charvet) wedding.  I could totally see this happening:  Sydney is so excited about her wedding to Craig and so in love with him.  All of a sudden, she decides to take a pregnancy test and finds out that she’s pregnant.  She looks at the timeline for how far along she is and realizes that she got pregnant from Michael (Thomas Calabro) and not Craig.  So, she doesn’t want to hurt Craig because she loves him so much and he’s so good to her.  Instead, she fakes her death and runs away to have her baby elsewhere.  Totally sounds like a Melrose Place plot.  I wonder if I’ll be right?

Also, The CW has released it’s Fall 2009 schedule.  Some interesting things to discuss.  Here’s the schedule:

THE CW FALL 2009 SCHEDULE

MONDAY
8-9 p.m.: Gossip Girl
9-10 p.m.: One Tree Hill

TUESDAY
8-9 p.m.: 90210
9-10 p.m.: Melrose Place

WEDNESDAY
8-9 p.m.: America’s Next Top Model
9-10 p.m.: The Beautiful Life

THURSDAY
8-9 p.m.: Vampire Diaries
9-10 p.m.: Supernatural

FRIDAY
8-9 p.m.: Smallville
9-10 p.m.: America’s Next Top Model repeat

Sure to tick off many fans of Smallville, the show has been bumped to Friday nights.  We all know that any show bumped to Friday nights is dead.  Friday nights are just not a good night for TV.  So, I’m thinking that this could be the final season of Smallville, unless the fans unite and figure out a way to save it.

“Gossip Girl” and “One Tree Hill” have worked well together, so that’s a no brainer.  “90210” and “Melrose” have always been destined to be back to back (the way they started off in the 90’s on Wednesdays).  Ashton Kutcher’s “The Beautiful Life” makes sense with “America’s Next Top Model” since they are both shows about models.  “The Vampire Diaries” needed a home, and even though “Smallville” and “Supernatural” worked well together, it also makes sense to put “The Vampire Diaries” and “Supernatural” together.  The CW is going to own TV this fall with such talked about new shows and proven hits returning.  Also, note that “Privileged” has DEFINITELY been cancelled.  😦  Too bad, I really liked that show.  And also, “Valley Girls” (the Gossip Girl spinoff), as I previously told you, has been bumped to a possible mid-season replacement show.  What do you all think of this new lineup and the Melrose scoop??

OK, I’ve been promising these, and I wanted to get them online before the season finale airs tonight.  And it looks like I’ll be watching the season finale later at night b/c of my gym schedule.  😦  SO, most of you will probably know which of these spoilers, teases, and hints are real and/or fake and also what they mean.  And I must give props to the source of this material, which is www.gossipgirlinsider.com.

  • A couple gets engaged … and stoned.
  • Carter Baizen makes a surprise appearance.
  • Vanessa will definitely be around next season.
  • Reluctantly, J decides she wants to rule the school.
  • When Serena tries to unmask Gossip Girl, it backfires. Hard.
  • We find out Blair’s roommate at NYU, and it’s someone we know.
  • While Jack Bass does not appear in the episode, he still plays a role.
  • Someone we know – a dude – is falsely accused of being Gossip Girl.
  • We now know what brought Serena to Santorini … or more accurately, who.
  • Chuck Bass is branded a coward by Gossip Girl in the blogger’s shocking graduation blast, and for a while, he certainly lives up to the billing.
  • Lily and Rufus’ long-lost love child, Scott, is alive, well, and in New York. No one knows his identity yet, but he has something up his sleeve.
  • Some other notes…

    Valley Girls still has a good chance of coming to fruition…but as a midseason replacement in 2010.  So, maybe we’ll see it in the January/February time frame.

    Also, though not GG related, the TV Show “Privileged” may be coming back.  And it also looks like “Melrose Place” and “The Vampire Diaries” are sure bets.  I’ll let you know more as I learn more.

    OK, gang.  Hope you enjoyed these spoilers and I really hope you enjoy tonight’s season finale of Gossip Girl.  I’ll be bak late tonight or tomorrow with a recap from the episode!

    Mwuah!

    Vampire Diaries LogoWell, here’s a little info on the new CW show that I’m really excited about.  I posted info on the cast about 2 weeks ago, and at that time it was iffy if the CW would pick up The Vampire Diaries pilot.  However, since then it appears that VD may be a definite and now the Gossip Girl spinoff “Valley Girls” may not happen.  Personally, I would LOVE for both shows to make it, along with Melrose Place.  Anyway, here’s a quote from Variety.com about The Vampire Diaries (note that “Lily” was the original name given to the GG spinoff now referred to as “Valley Girls”):

    CW is also expected to bite into the vampire genre by greenlighting drama “Vampire Diaries.” The net is expected to order at least one more new drama, and “Lily” is facing strong competish from the male-models-in-NYC vehicle “A Beautiful Life.”

    Also, at a recent Young Hollywood party, some of The Vampire Diaries divas walked the red carpet and posed together for a group shot:

    Gossip Girl LogoWell, I come back from Vegas, and find a slew of Gossip Girl news!  Here’s what I’ve learned:

    First the spoiler:  Apparently one relationship will not survive prom night (which happens tonight).  Wonder which relationship it is?  I’m guessing Blair (Leighton Meester) and Nate (Chace Crawford).

    Second, it appears that the GG spinoff, Valley Girls, may not actually happen.  It has been reported that it’s too early for the show to be dead in the water, however, news is pouring in that the CW is really putting it’s money in the new Melrose Place and Vampire Diaries, and Valley Girls has kind of been pushed to the back burner.  Keep those fingers crossed gang!

    Next up, looks like Gossip Girl fashions will be coming to a store near you very soon.  Target has picked up a license to sell a clothing line based on the Gossip Girl show. 

    Finally, here are some pictures from tonight’s episode of Gossip Girl.  The episode is called Valley Girls and would be the springboard for the spinoff if it actually happens.  (The pics above of the Rhodes Sisters and Blair and Nate at the prom are also from the episode).
