What's next after a wedding? Expected to up the ante next season is CW series Life Unexpected. Despite middling ratings, the charming little series was renewed by the netlet for a second season, and it looks like it'll try to move forward with its storyline after the big season 1 wedding between Cate (Shiri Appleby) and Ryan (Kerr Smith). Left out, we don't expect Baze (Kristoffer Polaha) to mope for long. Entertainment Weekly reports that there are two love interests lined up for the unmarried corner of the initial love triangle - Kelly, a "perky and uptight" conservative author who joins Ryan's radio show; and Emma, a "high-powered" exec in her early 40s who works with Baze's dad Jack.

Insiders confirm that Life Unexpected is seeking actors/actresses for the following roles: * Kelly: A conservative author who joins Ryan's radio show and gets involved with Baze. * Emma: An older executive who works with Baze's father (pictured)... and gets involved with Baze. * Eric: A new high school teacher. * Paige: Ryan's sister. There's no season two premiere date yet for Life Unexpected, but remember: it will air on Tuesday nights this fall.
Confident as she is, Life Unexpected creator Liz Tigelaar started mapping out season 2 way, way before the freshman series got an official pickup. Now that it has, those plans are definitely pushing through. Will Cate (Shiri Appleby) stay loyally married to Ryan (Kerr Smith)? Or will Baze (Kristoffer Polaha) enter the picture? What will happen to Lux's (Britt Robertson) guy friends Jones and Bug? We've rounded up the freshest spoilers for the upcoming season of Life Unexpected, and they're under the jump: To Read More Click Here .
Cate and Ryan got married to conclude season one of Life Unexpected. So any problems between these two and Baze are over with, right? Wrong! "Just because [Cate] married [Ryan] doesn't mean she doesn't still have feelings for Baze," Shiri Appleby told E! News this week. High drama alert! As they look forward to the return of their show this fall (on Tuesday nights, take note, fans!), cast members Appleby, Kerr Smith and Kris Polaha have a preview of what's ahead for each of their characters. To wit.. Appleby: "Cate and Ryan are now married, and there are going to be some obstacles they're going to have to work through. And Cate's job might be up in the air at some point."

After heartily celebrating the news of a renewal, it's time to get down to the business of keeping Life Unexpected good and enjoyable - and the stars weigh in on the road they wish their characters would take. Kerr Smith, for one, is all about breaking the holy Life Unexpected triumvirate of Lux (Britt Robertson), Cate (Shiri Appleby) and Baze (Kristoffer Polaha). If it were up to him, his character Ryan, who got to marry Cate after all the romantic waltzing of season 1, wouldn't be the good guy everyone cut him out to be. "I don't like to play characters that are so clean cut," he tells Zap2it. "I like to get into the dirt, because everybody's got dirt on them. So I'd like to get into Ryan's backstory a little bit." Polaha for his part says he thinks his onscreen daughter Lux will "flourish" after her rebel child run in the inaugural season. "I think she's going to have a feeling of 'Did my parents adopt a lemon?' and she's going to really want to show that she's smart and good and all that stuff, which will sort of lead to chaos and comedy and great times."

The CW just unveiled its 2010-11 schedule and here are the highlights: 90210 is shifting to Monday (paired with Gossip Girl), One Tree Hill is moving to Tuesday (paired with Life Unexpected), Supernatural is relocating to Friday (paired with Smallville), and new actioner Nikita has nabbed the plum post Vampire Diaries slot on Thursday. The complete schedule is below. To Read More Click Here .
The CW has renewed both its bubble shows -- Life UneXpected and One Tree Hill -- while picking up two new series for next season, "Hellcats" and "Nikita." "Nikita" will give the network its first non-supernatural action-drama. The Warner Bros/Wonderland series stars martial arts expert Maggie Q as an assassin who goes rogue. "Hellcats" is about a college cheerleading squad at a Southern university, and is from Bonanza/Warner Bros./CBS TV. Though rumors had started last week that both veteran soap "OTH" and critically well-liked freshman drama "Unexpected" might get another round, the move is still a bit surprising, particularly in the case of "Unexpected," which has garnered modest ratings. This will mark the eighth season for "OTH." Update: As noted in comments by flashteevee, TV Guide is reporting that Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton will return for the 8th season of One Tree Hill. Source
When considering the future of some shows on Fox and The CW , in the case of the former, there are only a couple of programs on the fence. Fox, overall, has had a strong year highlighted by the success of ' Glee ,' which trumps nearly any disappointment execs might have over already cancelled shows like ' Sons of Tucson ' or ' Past Life .' On the other hand, the CW has a few hours teetering on the brink amid some solid, if not spectacular, already renewed shows like 'Vampire Diaries' and ' Supernatural .' To check the threat assessment for the Fox and CW programs on the bubble, read on: Fox 1. ' Human Target ' The fact that ' 24 ' will not be coming back for a ninth year makes it likely that 'Human Target' will. Fox has something good with this show and given how they cultivated ' Fringe ' after one season, it's logical that 'Human Target' will get the same opportunity. Bob made a good argument for why it should be back. Then there's this comment from Fox president Kevin Reilly, that this is a show he'd "like to bring back next year." If he feels that way, it's probably going to happen. 2. 'Lie To Me' In the same interview, Reilly told The Hollywood Reporter, "I already see that being a player next fall." That sounds like a major 'yes' vote to me. 'Lie to Me' also has fresh episodes to air between now and the fall, so it could pick up momentum -- and viewers -- before a relaunch in the new season. At the very least, 'Lie to Me' should get a mid-season nod. To Read More Click here .
This article 'teases' about the season finale of BE, but that's for Americans as BE season 2 aired in the fall in Canada. Though, it's still really nice to hear her talk about what her character has done throughout season 2, as well as hearing Erin talk about her role on the CW's 'Life Unexpected' and what it will mean for her if both shows get renewed this fall.

More than a week after Life UneXpected 's season/series finale aired, it will be a grueling wait for Lux fans up until The CW 's upfront presentation in May 20. The numbers are good (a 1.5 in the CW target 18-34 demo), sort of, and combined with excellent reviews from critics, the CW may just give this charming freshman series another season, at least. For creator Liz Tigelaar, saying she's "confident" about a renewal is too much, especially if it means competing with long-running One Tree Hill, the rumored rival of Life Unexpected for that precious spot in the lineup. "I feel positive about it," she tells Zap2it. "I don't mean that in competition with anybody else. I know there's a lot of speculation that either we're going to get picked up, or One Tree Hill is, and maybe that's true. I think a lot of shows should get picked up. Ratings-wise, we seem on par, but there are so many factors that go into it." To Read More Click Here .
