Sam Winchester is getting a love interest, and she’ll be played by Liane Balaban (ALPHAS, COVERT AFFAIRS). The role won’t be a permanent one, though (but then again, since when has a Winchester love interest been a permanent gig on this show?), with Balaban set to play Amelia, described as “a tragedy-damaged soul” that “soon reveals herself to be a brave, sweet, smart, sarcastic woman.” [TVline]

Warner Bros. has released some promotional artwork for some of their upcoming 2012 TV shows for Comic Con, including ARROW, REVOLUTION and 666 PARK AVENUE. There will be over 40,000 of these available to Comic Con 2012 fans spread out over 38 participating hotels. Considering that Comic Con averages around what, 100,000 a year, that means your chances of getting one of these is pretty good.
CW’s THE SECRET CIRCLE is gone. Canceled. Oh well. For those who will undoubtedly miss it, here’s a 6-minute blooper reel from the show’s first (and only) season. Enjoy. Hey, better this than nothing, right?

The CW has released preview clips from their upcoming Fall shows, including the superhero SMALLVILLE spin-off ARROW and the new version of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, coincidentally starring former SMALLVILLE lead Kristen Kreuk. Well, maybe not so “coincidentally”. The CW likes to work with the same actors over and over again.
More renews and cancellations from the current Upfront shindigs, where TV networks gather to introduce their new shows to the press and announce the renewal or cancellation of existing shows.

Like the headline says, this isn’t really a surprise to me. Both SUPERNATURAL and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES are high-performing shows for the network, and SUPERNATURAL in particular, now in its 7th season, has a large fanbase that would probably scream bloody murder if the show was canceled. THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, currently in its third season, is also pretty popular with “the kids”, as they say.
