I love the show! I am so glad there is going to be a third season!

PLEASE!!! keep this on! Yeah, its a little predictable but so what. Who doesn’t love a a tragic hero and heroine. Above all VERY entertaining! Million times better over all the stupid reality crap on TV. I only just started watching it and apparently there’s been several seasons. Someone needs to get on top of the PR

This has to come back, I’m finally watching it – where was it buried??!!!! I had no idea it was on, AMC put all their eggs in on Mad Men and Walking idiots. This show has some depth, sometimes predictable, but always entertaining. Bring it back and push the PR.

I love this show It really is one of the better ones on tv these days! Good acting & storyline. I REALLY hope it is not cancelled, but all the good shows are usually cancelled & all those crappy reality shows take there place. Id rather eat glass then watch reality tv!!!

Love the show but so disappointed with the season finale. I can not imagine the upside to killing off Lily!!! I am afraid season3 will just be raging Cullen.

Tammy Yates October 27, 2012 at 8:46 pm

Been dragging my feet finishing the finale of Season 2.
Hell yeah I want a Season 3!!


Penekamp October 26, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Please bring this show back. It’s one of the best on TV. I hated losing Lilly Bell. Dominique Mcelligot is one of the most beautiful and talented young actresses in the business.


Shar October 26, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Absolutely want to see a season 3.
