According to Entertainment Weekly, Robertson's casting in the drama series is in second position, behind 'Life Unexpected,' though it's not specified what part she'll play. The CW has not officially made a final decision on the fate of 'Life Unexpected,' but with a "complete series" DVD set being released soon, all signs point to its cancellation.
'Secret Circle' is based on L.J. Smith's novels about a young woman who moves to a new town and finds out she's a witch. Not only is she a witch, but she's part of a secret coven and is the key to the battle between good and evil.

Looky there. With just those seven little words The Sarah Connor Chronicles has become the show I'm most looking forward to next season. With music, there's nothing I like more than putting a little Garbage on the turntable. Because of that, over the years I've become just a little bit obsessed with Shirley Manson. And now comes word that the lovely and talented Miss Manson has been signed to the show.
Just that is enough to make me watch, but it gets even better. This isn't a musical guest like someone stopping by to play at P3 or the Montecito. Oh no, Shirley will join the cast in a regular role as Catherine Weaver, CEO of a high-tech company. One could certainly argue that it's stunt casting, or that they could find a more qualified actor to take on such a big role. But any crazy argument like that will fall on deaf ears here pal. It's Shirley Manson. That's all I need to know.
