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.
Sex, stripping and hot twentysomethings trying to make it in Hollywood? Yep, welcome to your newest guilty pleasure, The L.A. Complex.

The new CW series, imported from Canada, features an group of friends living in a seedy motel-style apartment complex struggling to make it in Tinseltown. At the focus is Abby, played by Degrassi alum Cassie Steele, a talented actress who has yet to get her big break. 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. "That's what's interesting [about the show], seeing what people have to deal with on the dark side to get where they want to in life."
Eating brains was only part of the pleasure for Jewel Staite when she guest-starred on Friday's episode of The CW's Supernatural (9/8c).
"I saw that Jensen [Ackles] was directing," Staite tells TVGuide.com. "He's an old friend of mine, so I thought, 'Ooooh, fun! That would be great.' Luckily it all worked out. When you get on a show where one of the actors is directing, it can go either way. Sometimes they can stress out if they have too much on their plate, but he was so calm and so cool and so collected. He just really impressed me. We had some days we didn't even go the full 12 hours of shooting. We were let out early because he knew exactly what he wanted and when he got it, he moved on."
Supernatural returns for its seventh season Friday at 9/8c on The CW with two burning questions: What do you do when you become God? And what do you do when you're the new God's former best friends?
After ingesting all of the souls and their powers in Purgatory last season, Castiel (Misha Collins) declared himself the new God and demanded Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles) bow down before him ... or die. Although the brothers have encountered and even defeated their share of demons, angels and other non-humans before, God is a different story.
