Okay, I love Josh, and couldn't care less about about Catherine Hardewicke, but DANG..BRETT EASTON ELLIS! It has a fighting chance at being some-what decent!

Will give it a chance, only because I usually adore Josh S. and Stephanie S. But did they really need to cancel The Secret Circle only to turn around and order another series with a supernatural twist? Would have liked to see where the Secret Circle would have gone given the chance.
