The sixth season for any series featuring young actors is always crucial. Typically, the network signs the relative newcomers for six seasons at the beginning to lock them down. Naturally, some usually jump ship when their contract is over to pursue other endeavours or leave because not enough money was offered to stay.
In Nina Dobrev’s case, it seems it’s the former. The 26-year-old actress wrote a heartfelt message on Instagram to go along with a picture of herself with The Vampire Diaries showrunner Julie Plec. Here’s a snippet below.
“I’ve just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. I want to be the first to tell you that it wasn’t just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. I always knew I wanted Elena’s story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime.”
Plec confirmed Dobrev’s exit with her own statement.
“Saying goodbye to Nina is both bittersweet and beautiful,” she said. “After six-plus years together, the entire cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries has reached a level of closeness that I don’t think any of us ever expected. Nina is excited to spread her wings, get some rest, travel the world and also take it by storm, and we support her a thousand-fold. We will miss Nina and the four hundred characters she played, but we look forward to the insane and exciting challenge of continuing to tell stories of our Salvatore Brothers and our much-loved and gifted ensemble.”
The Vampire Diaries showrunner also revealed that another series regular is stepping down. Find out who below.
If you watched the bachelorette scene in Bride Wars, you know Anne Hathaway is no stranger to swinging. This time around she trades in rope for a wrecking ball to channel her inner Miley Cyrus.
The 32-year-old Oscar winner goes head-to-head with Emily Blunt for an upcoming episode of Lip Sync Battle. This match makes me long for a Devil Wears Prada reunion. Cyrus and Blunt were fantastic in that film and will no doubt be so in Spike’s new series as well. Watch the promo below and be sure to watch the full rumble on Thursday, April 9.
Bad news for all you Twin Peaks fans. The planned revival of the cult favorite isn’t looking too good right now. Show creator David Lynch announced he’s left the project. He took to Facebook as to the reason for this departure.
“Dear Facebook Friends, Showtime did not pull the plug on Twin Peaks. After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done. This weekend I started to call actors to let them know I would not be directing. Twin Peaks may still be very much alive at Showtime. I love the world of Twin Peaks and wish things could have worked out differently.” – David Lynch via Facebook
Do you think Showtime will proceed with the project? If so, do you think any of the original stars will sign on like Kyle MacLachlan? Weigh in below after reading the network’s official statement addressing Lynch’s exit.
You would never see any of “Barker’s Beauties” committing this huge faux pas. With that being said, imperfection is absolutely endearing. At the very least, it certainly garners plenty of press.
During a recent episode of The Price Is Right, Manuela Arbelaez (far left) accidentally revealed the price of the vehicle before a contestant could give another guess. Clearly, the model had a brain fart. When she realized what she had done, she did what most of us would’ve done. She hid behind the a prop out of embarrassment. Poor girl.
As a result, Drew Carey awarded the contestant the brand new Hyundai Sonata SE which if you’re interested retails for $21,960. Check out the hilarious fail below.
Excuse my French, but holy effin’ sh*t!!! Of all the things being revived from the 90s, this one has me completely stoked. If this is some sort of belated April’s Fool Day joke, then in the infamous words of Dave Coulier, ‘cut it out’ ;)
Netflix reportedly ordered 13 episodes of a Full House spinoff revolving around D.J. Tanner and Kimmy Gibbler. How insanely awesome is that??? Kimmy Gibbler!!! Are you kidding me! Candace Cameron Bure and Andrea Barber are set to reprise their iconic roles for Fuller House.
It’s no secret that my silver fox crush is Andy Cohen. I can just picture us in bed talking about the Housewives til dawn ;)
Instead of pranking his fans, the 46-year-old personality decided to celebrate April Fool’s Day in a different way. He revealed his Top 5 favorite shirtless moments on his talk show, Watch What Happens Live.
Hunky supermodel Tyson Beckford and the bartenders of Vanderpump Rules made the cut along with Below Deck’s Kelly Johnson. Speaking of the latter, have you seen his leaked naked selfie? His ‘below deck’ is equally as impressive as his ‘upper deck.’
Check out the compilation below. The top pick might surprise you. It definitely did me.
April Fool’s Day is always tricky. One never knows what’s real or simply a prank. At first glance, I thought this was a joke, but it seems legitimate. Unless of course, FOX and Kellan Lutz went to extreme lengths to punk everyone.
The network announced a new one-hour unscripted challenge series for the ultimate weekend warrior. Four men and four women each episode will test their their bodies and brains in three ultimate challenges that ask nothing more than for them to hit the BULLSEYE- literally. At the end, the last person standing walks away (if they still can get on their feet) $50,000 richer.
“I am a huge fan of extreme sports, and for me, nothing beats an adrenaline rush, which is why I am so excited to host this series,” Lutz said in a statement. “I love the concept of physicality and strategy combined with the most awesome challenges that will blow your mind. I am looking forward to watching these competitors push themselves out of their comfort zones and I’ll be on the sidelines cheering them on.”
Comedian Godfrey co-hosts alongside Lutz. Bullseye debuts on Wednesday, May 27. Check out the promo below where individuals transform themselves literally into human cannonballs. It’s Wipeout meets Fear Factor meets American Ninja Warrior.
Good news for all fans of The Americans. FX just renewed the drama co-starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys for a fourth season. Expect another sensational 13 episodes of spy intrigue in 2016. The show still has four episodes to air this season with the finale airing on April 22.
“Remarkably, this season of The Americans has achieved even greater acclaim than that of its first two seasons,” FX original programming president Nick Grad told The Hollywood Reporter. “The series has cemented it status with critics as television’s best current drama and arguably the best show on TV, and we couldn’t agree more.”
Maybe this year, the critically-acclaimed show can finally get some Emmy love. With exception for a couple of nominations for guest stars, it’s been virtually shut out. No bueno.
