Good news for Twisted fans. Kylie Bunbury is joining Avan Jogia’s new show Tut. She was one of the fellow stars on the ABC Family show that was cancelled after just one season. The news was announced after his new Spike TV show was confirmed. Now we know that he won’t be away from Kylie for long as she is joining the show with her role as Suhad.

When "Twisted" took its midseason break, the ABC Family mystery left several plots dangling in the air. Not only was the central question of who murdered Regina still no closer to any resolution, but fans were still wondering just why Danny (Avan Jogia) killed his aunt all those years ago and how his (not) dead dad Vikram was involved in the Regina mess. And then Danny ran, leaving his destination a question mark as well.
When the show returned for its midseason premiere on Tuesday (Feb. 11), it came prepared with answers. First off, Danny didn't even run. He was hiding in the vents of his house, where he overheard Kyle (Sam Robards) tell Karen (Denise Richards) that all signs pointed to Vikram being alive.
Calling all Twisted fans (Twisters? Twisterds? Socios? Help!): the ABC Family mystery drama is back and we've got an exclusive first look at the juicy second half of the season! When we last left our favorite possible sociopath, Danny (Avan Jogia) had escaped from the police through his bedroom window, and now we know one of the places he went—Jo's house (Maddie Hasson)! In our exclusive clip, Jo tells Rico (Ashton Moio) and Lacey (Kylie Bunbury) that Danny showed up in her room, and by the way Lacey says "Your room?" we're thinking she's not exactly happy with his choice of hideout. But as it turns out neither was Jo, and she reacted in quite possibly the best way a teenager can »
