Missed this one in my e-mail last week. Full announcement after the jump ...
Here's the word:
ABC Family will launch the fourth season of “Wildfire” on Monday, January 21 (9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET/PT), it was announced today by Paul Lee, president, ABC Family. The hit drama, produced by Lionsgate in association with Piller/Segan, will air its first eight episodes and then take a mid-season break to make room for ABC Family’s new reality series “America’s Prom Queen,” which will premiere on Monday, March 17 (9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET/PT).
Season four of “Wildfire,” starring an ensemble cast including Genevieve Cortese, Ryan Sypek, Micah Alberti and Nicole Tubiola, will pick up six months after Kris (Cortese) and Wildfire’s desperate participation in an illegal match-race. It becomes very clear that Kris is no longer welcome at Raintree and as everyone tries to get on with their lives, Matt (Alberti) seems to be the only one looking back. Kris, Junior (Sypek) and even Dani (Tubiola) are all moving forward… but they are headed in new and very different directions. With all these radical changes, which ones will prove to be temporary and which are here to stay?
“Wildfire” will then return on Monday, April 28 with the remaining five episodes after the exciting season finale of “America’s Prom Queen” on Monday, April 21.
“Wildfire's roaring back with a great story arc that builds to a cliffhanger in March, and then after a mid-season break, it will return in April for a climax that will not disappoint our many fans." said Mr. Lee.
