No Back Nine Order for Life Unexpected, The New Show Rumored to Replace It

The CW has apparently decided not to pick up any more episodes of Life Unexpected. While it hasn't been officially cancelled (yet), this really isn't a good sign. We probably won't know the fate of the show until their fall lineup is announced in a few months. One of us is thrilled (the show hasn't been good since the pilot) and the other is unsurprised. This show's second season hasn't been nearly as touching or intense as the first season. It has had a meandering, dull feel to it, with no clever writing to make up for that. One blogger loves the whole first season, not just the pilot, but the only episode of second season that was decent was the premiere.

In an interview, creator Liz Tigelaar, wanted to make it clear to fans that the CW’s failure to order a back nine for season two is different from a cancellation. It is still possible that, after this season’s 13 episodes, there could be a season three. Watch this blog for news of the CW’s official 2011-2012 lineup, which should be announced in May.

Liz also told fans, “Each season has had an arc to it—like the first seasons starting with a proposal and ending with a wedding—and this season will have an arc to it as well. The stories that we started in the premiere will resolve in episode 13.” Liz said that they have an ending that feels final, so that if episode 13 is the series finale and there is no third season, fans will still get some closure.

So, in short, it’s not dead yet, but there isn’t a great deal of hope. We will go down with this sinking ship by providing weekly recap/reviews. Hopefully they will spark reader interest in the show. It's a sweet show, overall, and there is potential for it to be as good as it was in the pilot.

Rumors are circulating that the replacement show will be Secret Circle, which would be a new show about witches. It is based on a series written by the same person who brought us The Vampire Diaries. Ok, if the CW takes away LUX and replaces it with something like The Vampire Diaries, neither of us are going to be that sad...


  1. This is how I feel:

  2. :(

    One of us agrees. How come so many of Cat's favorite shows are either ending or over? No wonder you are sad.

  3. Cat is feeling the angst. She is afraid that TV is turning against her.

  4. Stop watching TV then. Seriously, you have good taste, and if the TV turns against you, we won't have any good shows to watch or cover. We are already having minor panic attacks over this being the last season of Friday Night Lights.
