Our Favorite Bad-girl Francia Raisa Has Grown Up!
Series Finale Airs: Monday, June 3rd at 8PM ET/PT on ABC Family
Finale Follows an All-Day Secret Life Fan Favorite Marathon from 11:00 AM – 8:00 PM
Burbank, CA – ABC Family says goodbye to its longest running original scripted series when The Secret Life of the American Teenager concludes on Monday, June 3, 2013 (8:00 – 9:00 PM ET/PT). The groundbreaking drama premiered in 2008 and quickly helped establish the network’s core millennial audience.
Preceding the finale, the network will air an all-day Secret Life Fan Favorites marathon from 11am-8pm. Fans voted on their favorite moments from all five seasons and winning episodes include Amy telling her mom she’s pregnant, John’s birth, the 100th episode, Ben’s proposal to Adrian and the pilot.
In the five years since Secret Life has been on the air, we have witnessed Francia Raisa, in her breakout role as “Adrian Lee,” blossom into an talented actress and rising star. Francia will next be seen in the ABC Family TV movie, Christmas Bounty and she will also be seen in Company Town, a Taylor Hackford directed TV movie for CBS. Additionally, Francia has been cast as the lead in the highly anticipated 2014 indie film, Beyond Paradise alongside Ryan Guzman.
No doubt, TV fans are going to miss “Adrian’s” conniving, manipulating and scheming ways. A Jezebel with a sensitive side… a bad girl with a code of ethics… her own. Every high school as one… but when Adrian did bad, she did really well!
We applaud ABC Family and show creator Brenda Hampton (7th Heaven) for casting Francia in 2008 and Cierra Ramirez in 2012 along with a diverse group of actors in their award-winning series. Secret Life broke all records for an original series on the network, including taking the number one spot in its time slot for cable TV when it premiered in 2008. It has been one of the most popular teen TV shows.
Francia Raisa is one of Latin Heat’s top Young Hollywood Actors in American TV and Film to watch out for.
In the final episode, “Thank You And Goodbye,” high school graduation is finally here, prompting everyone to reminisce about how much their lives have changed over the past few years. Amy’s relationships with Ricky and Ben weigh heavily on her mind, while Grace contemplates Jack’s place in her life. Meanwhile, Adrian is ecstatic when an unexpected visitor knocks on her door.
The Secret Life of the American Teenager stars Shailene Woodley, Ken Baumann, Greg Finley, Daren Kagasoff, Megan
Park, Francia Raisa, Michael Grant, Cierra Ramirez with Steve Schirripa. Special guest stars in “Thank You And Goodbye” are Mark Derwin, Josie Bissett and Molly Ringwald.
