After a finale that included blood, fire, pregnancy and heartbreak, The L.A. Complex is back.
When we last saw the residents of The Lux, Tariq (Benjamin Charles Watson) had been nearly beaten to death by his in-the-closet rap superstar boyfriend Kaldrick King (Andra Fuller), Abby (Cassie Steele) and Nick (Joe Dinicol) were officially a couple, Raquel (Jewel Staite) learned she was pregnant, Alicia (Chelan Simmons) booked the gig of a lifetime and Connor (Jonathan Patrick Moore) had purposely set his mansion on fire. When the series returns on Tuesday (9/8c, The CW), expect familiar faces to leave, newcomers to move in and immediate resolution to the freshman season's cliff-hangers.

And if you've seen the opening scene of the premiere (the full episode is online), there's nothing glamorous about Abby's or her friends' paths to success. "Quite often people get into very desperate and bad places," Steele tells TVGuide.com.

It looks like the CW is readying a move back to Los Angeles.
The network is nearing a deal to buy the upcoming Canadian soap The L.A. Complex, Deadline reports. The series follows the lives of several twentysomethings who live in the same Los Angeles apartment complex and try to make it in Hollywood.
