It’s been six months since Casey and Cappie split up on the bittersweet season finale of Greek back in March. While the final season of the ABC Family hit won’t premiere until January, we were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the upcoming episodes as we spent a day behind the scenes on the set this Summer. We sat down with the cast to get the scoop on where the next school year will find the Cyprus-Rhodes crew – and which familiar face will be returning to the show and causing some serious drama!
Mery Streep's 23-year-old daughter Grace Gummer just landed a new gig at Nickelodeon — and it got me thinking about all the big names out there with famous actors for parents. From A-listers like Angelina Jolie and Ben Stiller to small screen stars like Spencer Grammer, take a look at 10 of my favorite actors with famous parents.
We've pondered and discussed the question of who Casey should be with — Cappie or Max (or no one!) — and in tonight's finale of Greek, Casey will finally make her decision. Many of us have an assumption of who it'll be (and the clip after the jump only confirms this) so now I'm tuning in to find out how the "chosen one" will react!
Here's what else we can expect from tonight's finale: "Kappa Tau hosts an 'End of the World' party, and Casey struggles with conflicting feelings she has for Max and Cappie. Meanwhile, Ashleigh is accused of sabotaging a homecoming float, and Dale and Calvin take a purity pledge."
It'll be a bittersweet night as the season comes to a close, but thankfully we don't have long to wait until the next "chapter" begins on Monday, Aug. 31. To check out a clip from tonight's episode, in which Ashleigh has some tough-love words for Casey, read more
From the previews for this week's episode of Greek, it looked like Max was going to propose to Casey! If you haven't yet watched the episode, I won't say what happens, but I will say that there is a wedding on Greek — for former Zeta Beta Zeta sister Kiki, who was Frannie's big sis (so, Casey's grand-big sis, and now Jordan's great-grand-big sis). Kiki (played by Colette Wolfe, whom I've seen everywhere lately, from Observe and Report and 17 Again to a recent episode of Reaper) wants to have the wedding at CRU and she enlists the help of her old ZBZ sisters.
Included in this whirlwind wedding weekend is a bachelorette party for Kiki at Dobler's, but going through Kiki's "scavenger hunt" list ends up revealing more about Casey, Frannie and especially Rebecca than it does about Kiki. If you've seen the episode (or don't mind some spoiler-y stuff), you can check out Kiki's bachelorette party scene from Greek if you read more
Big things are brewing on ABC Family's Greek, which returns with new episodes tonight. (I know, because we needed another show on Mondays.) We return to Cypress-Rhodes at the start of Casey Cartwright's senior year, after her defeat in the ZBZ election and her big Summer internship. Recently, Spencer Grammer hopped on the phone to chat about Casey's career crisis, this season's guest appearances, and boy drama. Read on for highlights:
The last season ended on a pretty big cliffhanger, and when we come back, it's the next school year. How quickly will we find out what happened right at the end of that cliffhanger?
You'll find out at the beginning of the episode — as soon as Casey gets back to Cypress-Rhodes — what's going on. And then of course there's always a twist — it's Greek. So be ready for a surprise.
And how much do we see of what happened over the Summer?
There's a little piece of it. Right at the beginning, you see the tail end of that. You start to realize what Casey's summer was really like, and it sort of changes her perspective on what this semester's going to hold for her.
Yeah, we saw a little of Casey's career drama and questions about her future in the last batch of episodes. Now that she's a senior, will that be a big part of her story?
I think that it makes Casey's year just a little bit more serious She realizes since she isn't president of the sorority like she originally thought that she was, that she is gonna buckle down and get a little bit more serious about her career and school. But whenever you have plans like that, something always comes along to change them.
Casey's been the ZBZ top dog for so long. Is it tough for her to step back and support Ashleigh now that she's president?
I think it's a little strange at first, of course, but ultimately, friendship always wins in the end. . . . I think it's a big growth thing for Casey as a character to see her change and realize that she can be supportive in a friendship even though she might not have gotten everything that she wanted.

A handful of Hollywood's rising stars got all dressed up to portray American icons over seven decades for the April issue of Glamour. Emma Roberts looks cute as a button doing her best Audrey Hepburn, while America Ferrera goes more political as Dolores Huerta. Lindsay Lohan is an unmistakable Madonna during her "Like a Virgin" MTV VMA performance. Imitating the Queen of Pop comes easily to LL, who said, "When I was little, every day after school I would come home and put in her The Immaculate Collection disc and karaoke to it around the whole house." All the ladies look gorgeous, right down to Alicia Keys as one of our newest icons, Michelle Obama — check out the full set here.
Can March 30 come a little sooner, please? That's when Greek returns to ABC Family for the second half of its second season, and I wouldn't be lying if I said it was literally marked on my calendar. There's just something about this sweet little show that always gives me a pick-me-up, so it seems appropriate that it'll be coming back just as Spring is dawning.
The mid-season finale in the Fall left the show in a crazy place, with a ton of power in the hands of Rebecca Logan. I'm curious to see what will happen with that, especially considering this big spoiler about the fate of one ZBZ sister (seriously, don't click if you don't want to know). Meanwhile, the show is plus-one in the cute factor after adding Jesse McCartney to the cast to play a freshman jock who will be hotly pursued by both Kappa Tau and Omega Chi.
Anyone else ready for all the fun to start up again? You can check out a promo and a clip from a McCartney video with even more scenes if you read more
Oh yes, it's time. Fall is quickly approaching, schools are in session, and my beloved Greek is on the air again!
The show returns to ABC Family for its second season tonight, on a new night and time: 9 p.m., following The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Secret Life has spent the Summer pulling in the highest ratings in ABC Family's history, and I hope its popularity translates to some big numbers for Greek, which (sorry, Molly Ringwald) I think is better-written and better-acted by far.
I've seen the season premiere, and while I wouldn't dream of spoiling anything, I will say that it's a completely delightful episode that answers a few of the questions from the Spring Break-themed finale and delivers a few new cliffhangers of its own. The setting is the annual Greek Week Olympics, which brings out the competitiveness in our Cyprus-Rhodes kids: Casey sees another chance to prove she deserves to be ZBZ president for real, and Rusty and Calvin struggle to stay neutral while their houses are yet again competing against each other. But the plot summary is only the slightest hint of what makes the episode good; you'll have to catch all the one-liners and shocking moments for yourself tonight.
If you're home today and looking to catch up on Greek, you're in luck: ABC Family will be airing nine episodes from the first season back-to-back starting at 11 a.m. EDT and PDT. Meanwhile, to watch a promo, just read more
