This is my favorite pic of the new line up on CW. The show will be a mesh between Vampire Diaries and Twilight. It also has Brittany Robertson and Thomas Dekker to lead the way. The only thing that might be missing, is Kyle Gallner. Since they both have worked with him before, hopefully, they can sweet talk him into a guest appearance.
The show is from The Vampire Diaries writers and they've proven they know what good character driven stories are made of.
The "Secret Circle" series follows 16-year-old Cassie, who moves from California to live with her mom in New Salem and falls in love with a mysterious boy named Adam. But, when she enrolls in high school there, she realizes that he, she and all the other elite students at the school are witches! She befriends their leader, Diana, but soon discovers that Adam and Diana are dating, which leads to a whole bunch of complicated drama.
Since it was L.J. Smith that started the craze with Vampire Diaries, hopefully, this show will catch on too. The special effects are delightful and so is the cast. Of course, when you have a well loved series, there are fans who are not going to find the show as appealing, while other fans will.
The show has Phoebe Tonkin, Logan Browning, Shelly Hennig and Louis Hunter. Thursdays are looking good this fall.
