There are only two episodes of LIFE UNEXPECTED left and, quite frankly, that breaks our heart a little. Yes, we understand the reality of the ratings business. But really, when was the last time The CW aired a show so darn lovable? In honor of the series, LUX creator Liz Tigelaar and stars Shiri Appleby (Cate) and Kristoffer Polaha (Baze) participated in IBG’s Conversation event — a benefit for Portland’s Boys & Girls Aid — this weekend. Keep reading for some of their thoughts on LUX, its fans, a few of their favorite memories and more… Tigelaar told us that when she got the call from The CW, saying they wouldn’t be ordering the back nine episodes of season two — just one day before they were to prep what would be the final hour of the show — she and the writers had to figure out what LIFE UNEXPECTED was really about: a love triangle or a family? The writers concluded that LUX was about a family and were able to make a few tweaks to give the finale some closure. http://www.givememyremote.com/remote/2010/12/14/life-unexpected-shiri-appleby-kris-polaha-liz-tigelaar-talk-finale/
When Life Unexpected returns for a special two-hour event on January 18, it won't just be a season finale, it will be a series finale.

The network might not like to promote it, but the studio behind the show, Warner Brothers, has announced that it will release a special six-disc DVD set called Life Unexpected : The Complete Series on April 5. Luckily the writers were given some notice, so fans shouldn't be left with a cliffhanger or any open questions. To Read More Click Here.
