ABC’s Revenge is getting into some strategic advertising. The company has partnered with high-end retailer Neiman Marcus and mass retailer Target to bring specific advertising to a special episode of ABC’s soapy drama. On November 11, any advertising that is not local (so we’ll still get some local news anchor men and women and the like) will be devoted to the two retailers and the clothing they sell.
ABC’s Revenge will be introducing Victoria’s mom in an upcoming episode of the soapy drama, and she will be played by none other than veteran actress Adrienne Barbeau. If you have the lifespan to remember all the way back to the seventies, you may remember Barbeau as Carol in the hit comedy Maude. More recently she’s shown up in Dexter, but playing a mother who spent years damaging her daughter sounds a whole lot more fun.
Sunday night is packed again! Last night marked the series and season premieres of a number of shows, including the return of ABC's Revenge, which has officially moved from its previous Wednesday night time slot to Sunday nights following Once Upon a Time. Check out the promo for next week's "Resurrection" ahead...
Michael Trucco won’t have much in the way of down time when he finishes up his current arc on How I Met Your Mother. The Battlestar Galactica alum has signed on for an arc on another series. This time he’ll go from comedy to drama and appear on the upcoming second season of ABC’s soap Revenge .
Emily Thorne will be back in action (mostly quiet, sneaky action) later this month when Revenge returns for its second season. What will Emily get up to in Season 2? We have some photos and an episode description, which give us a few clues as to what's ahead. Check them out ahead and consider yourselves moderately spoiler warned!
ABC is making a bold move that could give a boost to three series getting ready to return for a second season this fall. The complete first seasons of Once Upon a Time, Revenge and Scandal will all be made available on Netflix by the end of the month, giving viewers who didn’t check out the new shows last season a chance to get hooked just as all three start up again for Season 2.
Ensemble dramas are usually difficult to summarize succinctly, but Revenge is fairly simple at its core. Amanda Clarke (Emily VanCamp) is a troubled woman whose father, David (James Tupper), was killed in prison after being falsely accused and convicted for involvement in a terrorist attack. Amanda uses the false name Emily Thorne to blaze her way through the Hamptons, upending the lives of the Grayson family, who are responsible for David’s fate.
Conrad Grayson already has a strong leading lady to face on a fairly regular basis, with frequent confrontations with his wife Victoria. While Madeleine Stowe certainly holds her own, and Emily VanCamp is another female force to be reckoned with, ABC's Revenge could always use one more strong female character. And it appears to be getting one in the latest guest star to be announced for the drama series' second season.
At present, JR Bourne plays the role of Chris Argent, Allison's wolf-hunting father on MTV's drama Teen Wolf. The series just finished airing its second season, and it looks like Bourne has found a way to fill his schedule while the MTV show is on hiatus. He's set to appear in ABC's Revenge, which returns this fall for its sophomore run.
The Client List’s Michael Nardelli is joining the cast of Revenge during its second season. With his preppy hair cut and strong jaw, Nardelli should do pretty well playing a character hailing from the upper class elite; however, his role in the upcoming season is a little less clean cut. As the loner Trey, Nardelli will be busy getting everyone’s favorite little brother, Declan, into a world of trouble.
As September approaches, we inch closer to the end of summer and the start of the fall season. And with the fall season comes the return of ABC's Revenge for its second season. What will Emily Thorne be getting up to in Season 2? This new piece of key art doesn't spoil anything, other than that she still looks determined for vengeance.
If ever there were a character on ABC Family's Greek who seemed somewhat suited for the kind of drama that goes on in Revenge, it's Rebecca Logan. Dilshad Vadsaria's character proved to be steep social opposition for Spencer Grammer's Casey Cartwright, and there was a sneaky streak in her that served the show's never-ending stream of drama nicely. Between that and her upperclass background, I think she'd stand a chance of holding up in the wealthy, drama-filled world of Revenge. Needless to say, if I had to pick a Greek cast member to play a recurring role on Revenge, it would be Vadsaria, so this is definitely good news.
While many of us will forever associate her with being the ultimate "American Girl" Stacy Hamilton in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, these days Jennifer Jason Leigh is bringing her own layer of drama to Showtime's Weeds as Nancy's sister Jill. But with Weeds on the way out, Leigh is likely to have room in her schedule for other roles, and it looks like she found one on another great drama series.
We were left hanging on a number of pretty major character issues when ABC's Revenge wrapped up its first season. Among them was a big surprise regarding Emily Thorne's sort-of friend and identity exchanger Amanda Clarke. It's at this point that you'll want to stop reading here if you haven't gotten around to finishing up the first season of Revenge. Season 1 spoilers ahead!
Well, that certainly leaves us with plenty to think about this summer while we wait for Revenge to return for Season 2. It was a bumpy ride for tonight's season finale of Revenge, as virtually nothing was wrapped up, other than the matter of the cliffhanger involving Nolan. And speaking of which, Nolan wins for having some of the best lines of the night, including his order for Emily not to do anything "revenge-y" until he get to her.
