As a newbie to the world of LUX, I gotta say, what an Unexpected treat! After hearing all sorts of praise for the show during its first year, the expectations were pretty darn high for last night's second-season premiere. And not a single one went un-met. In fact, the return delivered on more than just the fawning blurbs that have been tossed around about this show, proving that yes, it is indeed the drama most likely to steal your heart. It sure snagged mine - while burning down a bar, no less. Not that this is a show that needs big, stunty moments (and the bar blaze was so not) to hook viewers. Obviously, Life's appeal is the giant soul it packs into the stories, whether it was Lux getting honest with Bug about not wanting to be engaged at 16, newlywed Cate being fired from the radio show while wrestling with her feelings for her ex, or Baze manning-up to his dad about fixing the bar...and his broken life. It also doesn't hurt that the cast is really good. It's a rare gem that can make you care about an entire ensemble that's riddled with so many flaws and romantic dysfunctions. Now it makes sense why people love this show! And since last night's episode set up several juicy plots (including one straight out of Pretty Little Liars featuring Melrose survivor Shaun Sipos), Season 2 seems primed for even messier emotional stuff. Some that may either excite or irk fans. But hey, if you really love something, you take the good and you take the bad, right? After all, those are the facts of Life. Are you a LUX fan? What did you think of the season-opener? Source Here

Ever wonder what a day on the set of Life Unexpected is like? Well, it's not too much different from what you see on the CW series. "We're not all that different than the roles we play," says Shiri Appleby, who portrays Cate. They laugh, they pull pranks - like replacing fake beer with real beer while filming - all while shooting in Canada. Appleby and co-star Kristoffer Polaha (Baze) give us the low down on what it's really like on set. Check out the exclusive photos here. Life Unexpected premieres Tuesday at 9/8c on the CW.

It's a veritable who's who of young Hollywood starlets who will be getting their horror on in "Scream 4." We were first to report "90210" star, Shenae Grimes, has already shot her scenes for the film. Now, sources tell us a fellow CW star has just flown to Ann Arbor, Michigan to shoot hers. "Life Unexpected's" Britt Robertson has joined the cast. We have no details as to her role in the horror reboot premiering in April 2011, but we expect it to include running and screaming. What fun! On The CW's "Life Unexpected," which premieres its Season 2 on Tuesday (Sept. 14), Robertson plays Lux, a teenaged foster child who gets reunited with her parents played by Shiri Appleby and Kristopher Polaha. Before "LUX," Robertson starred in CBS' "Swingtown" and appeared in several films including "Keeping up with the Steins" and "Dan in Real Life." We've contacted "Scream 4's" studio for a statement, but it was unable to get back to us by the time this articled posted. Source Here

"Life Unexpected" is welcoming "Melrose Place's" Shaun Sipos to the cast this season, and his character, Eric Daniels, is... well, not what we expected. Zap2it visited the show's Vancouver set and had a chat with executive producer Liz Tigelaar to get the scoop on Portland's newest hunk. Eric blows into town in the Sept. 14 premiere and surprises Lux (Britt Robertson) with his almost dangerously optimistic, hopeful outlook on life. "It's already leaked online that Eric is a teacher at Lux's school," Tigelaar tells us. "She's struggling in her classes -- Lux is definitely not your straight-A student. He's going to become a very influential person in her life who helps uncover and reveal things about what's going on with her." To Read More Click Here .
