The Secret Circle Boss Dissects Nick's Death and the Coven's Possible Replacement

The Secret Circle

The Secret Circle's circle is broken.

Tragedy struck Chance Harbor when Charles (Gale Harold) was forced to drown Nick (Louis Hunter) in order to kill the demon that had possessed him. More unnerving than his untimely demise is that Nick was a character who not only survived the L.J. Smith novels the series is based on, but also eventually found romance with Cassie.

Fall TV Preview: The Secret Circle

Thomas Dekker, Britt Robertson

Just because a show makes good programming sense doesn't make it a good program. This week's case in point: the CW's dreary and laughably derivative teenage witch-centric The Secret Circle, designed as an overly compatible companion piece to The Vampire Diaries (inspired by a series of books from the same author of the Diaries best-sellers) and produced by the same brain trust led by Kevin Williamson. It's basically the same show, only substituting witches for vamps and lacking (at least initially) the sense of humor and pacing that makes Vampire such a treat most weeks.

You'd think while they were busy cloning, they could ...

Meet The Secret Circle's Secret Coven of Witches

The Secret Circle

Move over vampires: It's time for witches to shine.

Thursday marks the premiere of The Secret Circle, a fish-out-of-water tale about an orphaned girl who discovers she's part of a secret coven of young witches who are coming into their own and discovering their powers.

For those who haven't read the L.J. Smith novels the series is based on — and even if you have, the Kevin Williamson and Andrew Miller-produced CW show will be quite different — we asked the actors portraying the six witches of the coven about what's brewing with their characters. Let's meet the witches: read more

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Got any dirt on Kalinda's love life this season on The Good Wife? — Eliza
ADAM:
Executive producer Robert King tells us that Kalinda will be playing the field a lot this season, but her thoughts will often return to one person in particular. "A lot of Kalinda's [story] is her unresolved feelings [for] Cary," King says. "How close can they be? ... There's something about Cary that is always very important to her, but it's unclear as to whether that's as a brother or a lover."

How will Owen balance being the new Chief and his problems with Cristina on Grey's Anatomy? — Tara  
NATALIE:
Since Derek and Meredith are also on the outs, Owen will turn to Derek in his time of need. "Derek and Owen are dealing with the twisted sisters — Meredith and Cristina — who are very connected and very similar in a way," Kevin McKidd tells us. "So, they try to... read more

Comic-Con: Will The Secret Circle Series Stay True to the Novels?

Britt Robertson

Fans of L.J. Smith's The Secret Circle novels will be pleased to learn that elements of her trilogy will live on in the new CW series. But just like with The Vampire Diaries, the producers have taken liberties in the show's creation.

An example? The Secret Circle (spoiler alert!) kills off someone who survived the entire book series within the first five minutes of the premiere. While that won't be the only difference from the source material, executive producer Kevin Williamson says they "hope to be as true to the story as we can."
