    LOVE THE SHOW………………………So many storylines to be made. I’m just confused by the season premier…..and season ending with only a handful of show. When a show ends in August you assume that’s the end of the season, not to continue in Jan. Does this mean it will become a fall show??????

    I like the show very much. I really hope it has a season three. I hope that Dani’s hair color goes back to season one.
