“The Nine Lives of Chloe King” fans, Christmas/Hanukah/whatever holiday you celebrate with presents has come early: ABC Family is finally giving you the chance to find out how the series would have ended.
The former ABC Family series was canceled after a brief 10-episode season, but the network and Alloy Entertainment are releasing the script for the two-hour movie, “The Nine Lives of Chloe King: Salvation,” online. The series conclusion will be posted on Alloy Entertainment’s official site on Friday, Sept. 13 at 9:13 a.m. PT.
“Although we ultimately decided not to continue with the series, we wanted to make the ‘Chloe King’ movie script available to her amazing fans to provide them the closure they’ve been clamoring for,” Kate Juergens, Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Development and Chief Creative Officer of ABC Family, said in a statement on Wednesday (Sept. 11).
The first season finale ended on a major cliffhanger when Chloe (Skyler Samuels), a descendant of the ancient Mai race, had just lost one of her nine lives courtesy of the assassin Simone, and boyfriend Brian (Grey Damon) appeared to have died after kissing Chloe (because they were two different species — Mai and human — their contact was fatal). Meanwhile Jasmine and her mom, Valentina, the leader of the local Mai pride, were attacked by the unpredictably violent Zane and left to die.
The script will answer fans’ lingering questions about The Order, Whitley Rezza’s true motivations, Alek’s past and whether Meredith will finally learn about her daughter’s secret identity. Also, Chloe will finally choose between human Brian and her fellow Mai, Alek.
Back when Damon’s first post-“Chloe King” project was premiering (the other short-lived series, CW’s “The Secret Circle”), Zap2it grilled him for how Season 2 would have played out. Did Brian truly die from Chloe’s fatal kiss?
“Well, I guess since the show’s over, I can tell you,” he told us back in January of 2012. “I was definitely going to be a part of Season 2, whether that was in reality or in some kind of spiritual realm.”
Damon had spoken with producers about a potential Season 2 before it was axed, so he was able to share Brian’s fate. “The idea that they were moving toward was that I was going to be in a coma after the kiss. They were going to play it so that because Chloe and Ben were really in true love, it somehow broke the spell, it was the exception to the rule,” Damon said. “I was really looking forward to exploring it, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles.”
No word yet on whether or not the movie script will follow the writers’ previous plans for Brian, but either way, we can’t wait to finally get all our questions answered. Hit the comments below with your theories on how “The Nine Lives of Chloe King” will end before the script is released on Friday (Sept. 13).
