“Twisted” star Avan Jogia has been cast in the new Spike TV event series “Tut” and while fans of “Twisted” may be happy for the leading man, it could be bad news for the ABC Family show. The fate of the show will be up in the air until the end of the summer, according to ABC Family, when the network plans to make its announcement about the show’s future.
The announcement that one of its leads will be starring in another network’s series could be a warning sign that “Twisted” is winding down and preparing to be cancelled. “Tut” may only be an event series, but with Jogia set to film for Spike, it is more unlikely a second season of “Twisted” is coming anytime soon. While there is no way to know for sure, the news is likely to make “Twisted” fans sweat the late summer renewal decision.
Meanwhile, the casting announcement is big news for Spike. “Tut,” a drama series about the Ancient Egyptian king, marks Spike’s first foray into scripted television in 8 years. The show will be filmed on location in Morocco and will star Academy Award winner Sir Ben Kingsley opposite Jogia as Ay, Tut’s advisor, according to TV Guide.
Jogia will also star in the upcoming film “Ten Thousand Saints” with Ethan Hawke, Emily Mortimer, Hailee Steinfeld and Emile Hirsch.
“Twisted” fans have been left hanging since the Season 1 finale wondering if Kyle shot Charlie after discovering that Charlie was Tess’s son. Fans can catch up on or relive the drama from Season 1 on Netflix, but will have to continue to wait to find out if they will be rewarded with a second season.
