’10 Things I Hate About You’: What would have been in season two

Posted: June 8, 2010 in 10 things i hate about you, articles, ew.com

For fans of ABC Family’s canceled series 10 Things I Hate About You, the Monday blahs are worse than usual. Where once fans had snappy dialogue, romance, and Ethan Peck to look forward to on Monday evenings, now there is just the empty void left by cancellation.

“I was telling someone it feels kind of like a breakup,” 10 Things creator Carter Covington tells EW.com. “Like you got dumped by this person and you’re like, ‘Wait a second. But we had such a great thing going on. Why would you dump me?’” Before you start writing angry letters to ABC Family, know that Covington doesn’t blame the network. “I know they loved the show,” he says, adding, “I think they were in a difficult, difficult position to try to figure out how to market and bring back one half-hour comedy by itself.”

For those frustrated by the series finale’s many cliffhangers, Covington sends his apologies: “It’s really hard for me because there’s nothing I would wish more than to have been able to have a series finale that really provided some closure for everybody.” Even though that was impossible — production wrapped before the cancellation axe came down — Covington is satisfied with how things ended. “In the life of the series, to me, Kat and Patrick were always going to run off into the sunset together,” he says. “In a way, I’m happy that the series ended where it did because at least they were together.”

But what about all the cliffhangers?! Unfortunately, we’ll never see them play out. Nor will Ethan Peck be piercing through the TV screen every Monday. “I think that might be what my contribution to history is — bringing Ethan Peck into the consciousness of America,” Convington laughs. But we’ve got the next best thing. Covington shared with EW.com what was in store for Kat, Bianca, Patrick, Joey, Cameron, and the rest of Padua High’s student body. Let’s break it down cliffhanger by cliffhanger.
