Twisted, a new mystery drama from ABC Family, centers around 16 year old Danny, who returns from juvenile detention (for allegedly killing his aunt) only to become the suspect in a new murder. Danny is obviously innocent and must work to clear his name in a town that is convinced of his guilt. So, this basically sounds like Pretty Little Liars with a dude, yes? Will Danny receive mysterious text messages from "B"? We can only hope. Twisted airs following Pretty Little Liars, Tuesdays at 9PM on ABC Family.
We were a bit skeptical when MTV announced that they were updating the Michael J. Fox classic film of the same name from the 80s. Fast forward to its 3rd season and Teen Wolf is one of the best - if not the best series - on MTV these days. This season - which will contain 24 episodes - begins with the students of Beacon Hills High School returning from their summer break, four months since the arrival of the deadly Alpha pack. Bad news, Jackson Whittemore has gone to London for good (and Colton Haynes has upgraded to Arrow on The CW). Luckily, there are new characters and villains, including Gideon Emery as Deucalion, the leader of the Alpha pack. Teen Wolf airs Mondays at 10PM on MTV.
The CW is getting into the spinoff game (after some reboots & prequels with varying degrees of success) - with what should be a sure thing. The Originals spins off the wildly popular series The Vampire Diaries, focusing on - you guessed it - the world's original vampires, who live in New Orleans. Vampire Diaries fans will already be familiar with the main characters: Klaus (Joseph Morgan), Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Rebekeh (Claire Holt), though don't expect to find the show airing in conjunction with Vampire Diaries on Thursday nights. The Originals will lead off Tuesday nights at 8PM this Fall, beginning October 2013.
