Family’s Affairs

Posted by RabbitEars

ABC Family held its TCA presentation this morning, with a few notable announcements:

* The Secret Life of the American Teenager, an immediate hit for the network after premiering just two weeks ago (it debuted to the network’s highest original series telecast ever), has already been renewed for thirteen additional episodes. One of these new episodes will air in September, while the remaining 12 will hit the airwaves in January.

* Greek returns for another season Aug. 26. As it returns, spring break is over, and the gang returns to campus to complete their school year.

* Lincoln Heights comes back Sept. 16 for its third season. This season, Cassie and Charles take their relationship to new heights, while Tay and Lizzie also delve further into their passions, with Tay starting to create his own music, and Lizzie getting invited into a prestigious private school.

The main topic of discussion was the three-night miniseries event Samurai Girl, airing Sept. 5-7. Based on the popular series of young adult novels, the series follows young Heaven (Jamie Chung, also starring in the upcoming April theatrical release Dragonball), the sheltered daughter of a wealthy Japanese family, who suddenly finds that her past is linked to an ancient prophecy that both good and evil forces seek to control. Brendan Fehr of the cult favorite Roswell also stars, as Heaven’s trainer and the man who may help her find her destiny, and maybe some romance.
