Talk about your hit television series!  The entire cast of ABC’s hit nighttime soapy drama, Revenge took part in the Paley Center For Media’s, PaleyFest 2012 where fans and the media can connect with their favorite stars and television shows through moderated panel discussions and learn some inside scoops and some of the inner-workings of a hit series.

Needless to say the Revenge PaleyFest event was highly attended.   After seeing the stunning cast including Emily VanCamp, Madeline Stowe, Nick Weschler, Josh Bowman, Henry Czerny, Gabriel Mann, Connor Paolo, Christa B. Allen, Ashley Madekwe made their way through the press tent, the actors along with creator, Mike Kelly took to the stage, showed those in attendance at the Saban Theatre a preview of the next episode and gave us some hints to what to look for when all-new episodes of Revenge air in April!

“Obviously, we’re going to end with a cliff-hanger. Heading into the season finale, there will be new drama, new alliances, and a lot more questions, so we have a great launching pad for Season 2,” Mike Kelley indicated to the audience,   Although he knows a renewal is not a guarantee for the show, Kelly reveals that everyone is hopeful.   Now, as far as Daniel Grayson’s murder trial it will not be long and drawn out as some soaps do! “We wrap up the prosecution’s case in the first couple of minutes of Episode 18 and then we launch into the defense of Daniel Grayson.  I believe the trial is done in Episode 19, so we take care of this in short order, Kelly indicated.  In addition, in the next episode Daniel will be beaten to a pulp by prison inmates, only to have it revealed that it was his mother, Victoria, who set the whole thing in motion! Yup, Madeline Stowe  says Victoria does it to protect her son! Thanks Mom!

Daniel will also get wind of the fact that dear Mom and Emily are pretty deceitful women! Josh Bowman detailed,  “He’s going to come to a crossroads about making a decision between good and evil.  He is, after all, a Grayson.”   In which Mike Kelley responded, “He’s no angel.  He shot a guy.  He didn’t have to.  He could have done something different with that moment but he didn’t.”  As well, more about David Clark will be revealed and a Revenge episode circa 2002 is on tap! And, we will learn just how far Emily will go with her plans for revenge.

Now below check out our photo gallery from yesterday’s arrivals with the Cast of Revenge! And come back later this week for On-Air On-Soaps interviews with the stars of the series.

Revenge looks a good show, but I won’t watch anything on ABC/D except for GH.

They dont have a problem keeping all the trash on,they have alot of trashy shows this season and getting rid of brothers and sisters make no sense to me ,they should have put it on earlier.if abc/disney didnt cut corners with the show the last 2 seasons that show would still be on,to bad another network couldnt have taken it.but once your on abc/disney theres no reason to hope for another network to take it cause they wont give up the rights,you are right they are out the door in record time,so why bother investing your time .

I actually agreed with you last night. I think my lab top shut down and I didn’t come back to re-posting it. I was explaining to you that the fans of the abc soaps are displaying AND saying in their behavior to the network, ” We have been loyal to you, and U haven’t been loyal to us by canceling our soaps “. The fans don’t know anyone personally to take it out on….. (or their suits might be torn off & fans would be arrested LOL) so they take it out on the network, by right they should. One… Read more »

Here is the premise of the show: After the ‘Broadway Disher’ (Lesli Margherita) leaks news of a top secret, in-the-works, new mega musical, the Broadway community goes off-the-charts batty. Top-of-their-game Broadway Producers Cheryl Philips (Lillias White) and Steve Jones (James Monroe Iglehart), arch enemies, pounce. Who will get the rights? Will way-out-of-their-comfort-zone creators Kaye (Ashley Park) and Bobby (Michael Urie) manage to deliver a draft of the show before their marriage implodes? Will Director/Choreographer Zoey Taylor (Ariana DeBose) send the show’s budget into a free fall with her wildly ambitious vision?  Will Broadway Diva Emma-Olivia (Sarah Stiles) get a Schmackery’s cookie (with Sprinkles) named in her honor? Will newbie Agent Maxwell Fernsby (George Salazar) step into his new big shoes? And will Science Consultant Andrew Barth Feldman (Andrew Barth Feldman) protect the integrity and authenticity of the in-the-works mega musical, before he needs to leave this top secret show to star in a new Broadway musical?

As The Curtain Rises proudly supports The Actor’s Fund, the Broadway Podcast Network Frontline Initiative, and is a sponsored project of IFP (www.ifp.org).

Check out previous episodes of the podcast here.
