By David Knox on October 19, 2011 / Filed Under Pay TV 9

US series The Secret Circle begins on FOX8 on October 31st -Halloween.

The CW series stars Britt Robertson as one of six teenage witches in the fictional town of Chance Harbor, Washington. And by the looks of that photo, Hayden Panettiere may want a royalty payment.

The series is produced by Kevin Williamson, is based on the book series of the same name by L. J. Smith and the cast also includes Gale Harold (Queer as Folk, Desperate Housewives) and Thomas Dekker (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles).

It premiered in the US in September and last week won a full-season order of 22 episodes.

Cassie Blake was living a happy, normal life until her mother died in a mysterious house fire. She then moves to her mother’s home town of Chance Harbor, Washington, to live with her grandmother but strange things start happening. When her new friends explain that she, like them, are all descendants of powerful witches she struggles to come to terms with her new life, until she discovers a hidden message from her mother that could change her life forever…

Mondays from October 31 at 7.30pm on FOX8.

    The show is actually good and will apeal to fans of Vampire Diaries, but I watched the pilot before I realized it would be on Fox8 soon.

    This show is rubbish, couldn’t get into it at all.

    I loved Buffy, Heroes, and still enjoy The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural but this show is ridiculous. Thomas Dekker’s bad acting and the paper thin plot made me turn the pilot off after 20 minutes

    A recent plot twist at the end of episode 5 also got a very negative reaction from fans. A second season is probably a lock but I’ll be surprised if this show makes it to a third.

    Well I don’t have foxtel so 9′s on selling has just screwed me over royally, but it is even worse for vampire diaries to do that to fans who saw the first 2 seasons on FTA and now miss out.

    Fox8 has become the official lifesaver for Aussie viewers to see current & new CW shows, such as ‘The Vampire Diaries’, ‘Gossip Girl’, ‘Supernatural’ & now ‘The Secret Circle’.

    TVD, GG have been seen on Ch 9′s GO! channel, but were given & treated with really bad programming timeslots & mismanagement, thus it’s being given excellent treatment on Fox8.

    The next show that will probably come to Fox8, might be ‘Hart of Dixie’.

    They forgot to mention that it also stars Australia’s Phoebe Tonkin, who was in “H20 Just Add Water” tv show & the “Tomorrow When the War Began” movie.

    She plays the bad girl in the new Circle.

    The show looks terrific. Glad it didn’t go to free-to-air as I can’t wait to see it in stunning HD on FOX8.

    Really like this. The guy from Out of the Blue has grown up and is smokin’!
