She loves comic books, blue nail polish and Jonathan Taylor Thomas circa 1995. She frequents Twitter to dish about CW shows, and when she's not blogging, she reads too many YA and NA books. She's an Amazon Bestselling Author of the Addicted series, a New Adult Romance. Follow her on Twitter @Becca_Ritchie.
“The Tomorrow People” ended its first season on Monday night with a shocking finale. If season 2 is picked up by The CW, lines may just be drawn between John and his friends. Entertainment Weekly interviewed Executive Producer Phil Klemmer, who talked about his pitch for season 2 and the new changes.
Klemmer said to EW, “Season 2 is going to pick up a good deal into the future, and in a lot of ways, episode 201 will be like a second pilot where we catch up with our characters very much like adults.”
If you’re wondering whether Stephen will mature out of high school with the flash-forward, the answer is yes. “And season 2, [Stephen] will know who he is, and the question will really be how he chooses to use his powers. And so it’s really interesting. I think our characters are so strong that they can really withstand a seismic shift in the world that they’re inhabiting.”
Good news for “The Tomorrow People” fans, Klemmer also noted that he has a lot of optimism about the renewal odds for the show. If a second season is announced, what would you like to see happen? Less love triangles? More John Young? More topside adventures? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
UPDATE (May 8th): “The Tomorrow People” has sadly been cancelled. We can imagine our favorite tele-person topside, living happily to lessen the sting. Read more about The CW’s cancellations and renewals here.
