    'Chasing Life' Renewed For Second Season!

    Woohoo! Chasing Life is coming back for a second season to ABC Family!

    The show centers on April (Italia Ricci) through her journey battling leukemia, during a time in her life when the challenges of finding love and success would be enough to keep any girl occupied. But April is determined to fight and refuses to give up her dreams and goals. Along the way, she’ll find new reserves of strength and passion within and discover that facing death may really be the only way to truly live.

    “Through the laughter and the tears, our audience has connected with the characters and relationships in ‘Chasing Life’ and we are thrilled to continue telling April’s courageous story,” Karey Burke, Executive Vice President, Programming and Development, shared in a statement. “Chasing Life has found a home here.”

    The show also stars Haley Ramm, Aisha Dee, Richard Brancatisano, Scott Michael Foster, and Mary Page Keller.

    Miss The 'Chasing Life' Summer Finale? This Is The Scene You Have To Watch

    Miss The 'Chasing Life' Summer Finale? This Is The Scene You Have To Watch

    Just in case you missed this week’s Chasing Life summer finale — to which we first have to ask why? — JJJ finally found the scene you need to watch.

    And no, we didn’t pick this scene alone because it’s an April and Leo scene. We picked it because both Italia Ricci and Scott Michael Foster made us stop writing notes on the episode for our recap and listen. This scene, is just so powerful and true.

    “I know being in here doesn’t feel like living, but you gotta do it. You’re going to beat this thing. I knew that the day you told me you were sick and then moments later asked me to help you get into my dad’s event,” Leo tells April in the hospital’s chapel. “You never stopped thinking about your future. You refused to accept that you wouldn’t have one, because you know you’re supposed to live. You still know that, there’s just this poison inside of you that’s trying to make you forget, but don’t let it.”

    In case you missed our recap, read it HERE and also catch a preview for the show’s Christmas episode this December below!

    'Chasing Life' Recap: Find Out What Happened on Tonight's Summer Finale!

    'Chasing Life' Recap: Find Out What Happened on Tonight's Summer Finale!

    JJJ seriously needs stock in a tissue brand and any kind of medicine that will keep our hearts from breaking.

    Tonight’s summer finale of Chasing Life was so heartbreaking in every form — and we’re also going to need April to stop her horrifying dreams.

    As April got settled into the cancer ward at Mass Gen, she’s given a huge send off from her family, a prep course from not just her own doctor, but George as well, and meets the nurses and some other patients. Later that night, after her first go-around with chemotherapy, Sara stays the night with her and to get her to sleep, reads her a favorite childhood book.

    Sara also meets Martine, April’s favorite nurse. We kind of love her more than Leilani, too, April. April wakes to find Dominic watching her sleep again. Dom’s back! Let us rejoice about that before everything else happens.

    Chasing Life's Italia Ricci on Tonight's Summer Finale: April Gets Closure with Leo, Holds Heated Convo with Dominic

    Italia Ricci has been tugging at our heartstrings all season long in our favorite new show Chasing Life, and tonight that comes to an end with the summer finale.

    In case you haven’t caught up (in which case, GET ON THAT!), the 27-year-old actress stars as April, an aspiring journalist at a Boston newspaper who is diagnosed with cancer.

    We caught up with Italia to get the scoop on what we can expect tonight, including what she thinks about the brewing love triangle with Leo (Scott Michael Foster) and Dominic (Richard Brancatisano). Check it:

    The Chasing Life finale airs TONIGHT @ 9PM on ABC Family.

    JustJaredJr: We have to start with Leo and April! They didn’t end on the best terms last week. What can we expect with their relationship going into the finale?

    Italia Ricci: For the finale, it becomes life and death. They do…I don’t know how to say this without giving too much away. There’s a little bit of closure. They do see each other again and speak, and a decision is made, and then something happens with Leo.

    JJJ: Where does Dominic fit into all this, now that he knows April’s secret?

    IR: Dominic, as you saw in the preview, he comes back. They figure some things out that put him and April in a very heated conversation.
