After months of wondering and waiting, fans of ‘666 Park Avenue’ will finally get to see how this freshman series will end, as ABC has announced that they will air the remaining unseen episodes of the show beginning June 22 at 9 p.m.

‘666 Park Avenue’ was based on a series of novels by Gabriella Pierce and centered on a young couple (Dave Annable and Rachel Taylor) who have been hired by the owner (Terry O’Quinn) and his wife (Vanessa Williams) to manage the historic apartment building that they own. Soon the young couple find that supernatural occurrences are threatening the lives of those who live there.

The series developed a cult following, however, the 10pm Sunday night time slot was not an optimal position for a genre show like this, and while live viewing numbers were down, DVR rating stats proved that the series was gaining viewers each week. However, it wasn’t enough to save the show.

In November, ABC stated that they would be cancelling the series and that ‘666 Park Avenue’ would end after its 13 episode run. While fans were disappointed (as well as series regular Annable who clearly stated his feelings upon the news on Twitter), producers David Wilcox and Matt Miller did promise that the show would not end in a cliff hanger and that viewers would have their questions about the apartment complex’ tenants as well as the building itself answered by the final episode.

But instead of letting the series run its course, the network decided to once again pull the rug out from under the show’s fans and pulled the series off the air before all 13 episodes had aired. They did state, however, that they would air the remaining 4 episodes in the summer.

With summer now just around the corner, ABC has finally given an air date for the remaining episodes. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the network will be airing any of the previous episodes before the 22nd, but you can watch episodes 5-9 over at the ABC site in its entirely.

While the news is not as promising as a second season renewal, at least fans can have some closure with the show before the Drake closes its doors for good.

“After surviving a year of econometrics, I’ve learned that I’m capable of doing anything.” —Robert Buckley

Earlier this month, UC San Diego hosted its annual Triton Day. Robert Buckley shared his recollections of time spent at UCSD, the struggles of being an actor and advice for future students…as well as the latest Hollywood scoop. Stay tuned for an exclusive profile on Buckley!

Robert Buckley is an American actor, best known for his roles on the television series Lipstick Jungle and One Tree Hill. A native of Claremont, CA. in Los Angeles County, Buckley earned an economics degree from UC San Diego. As an undergraduate, Buckley appeared as a contestant on The Price is Right. He recently played Bacas Mitchell in the indie film The Legend of Hell’s Gate: An American Conspiracy.

Q&A
Q: What was your favorite subject outside of your major at UC San Diego?
A: My favorite subject outside of economics was acting…shocker, right? As enjoyable as a full year of econometrics courses was, the intro to acting class I took at the end of my senior year ended up being my favorite class at UC San Diego.

Q: What course or faculty made the biggest impression on you?
A: Intro to Acting made the biggest impression on me as it introduced me to my future career and love of acting (or as my parents refer to it, “the demise of my college degree”).

Q: What was your favorite place to hang out?
A: Muir Woods Café was kind enough to employ me during my first two years at UC San Diego so it was always a fun spot to hang out at.

Q: What book did you last read (or are currently reading) and who is your favorite author?
A: The last book I read was Rob Lowe’s autobiography, Stories I Only Tell My Friends and two of my favorite authors at the moment are Tina Fey and Malcolm Gladwell.

Q: What is your “X Factor” – the key trait or quality that has helped you succeed in your career and/or life?
A: In my opinion, my comically oversized eyebrows are my X Factor(s). I’d love to say it’s my tireless work ethic or selfless devotion “to my craft” but let’s be honest—it’s all about the brows.

Q: What do you know now, that you wish you knew then?
A: I wish I would have known that my future in economics was going to be short-lived so it wouldn’t hurt to have tried a wider variety of courses from other disciplines.

Q: Do you give back to UC San Diego? If so, how and why (time, talent or treasure)?
A: Outside of some financial contributions, this is my first (but hopefully not last) time giving back to UC San Diego.

 

Robert Buckley is at UCSD today for Triton day and will share his journey from UCSD econ major to TV.

It is an ensemble multi-camera comedy about a group of friends whose lives completely change after they survive a plane crash. Buckley, repped by Interlink Management and WME, plays one of them, Chad, Griffin’s (Humphrey Ker) and Leah’s (Chyler Leight) arrogant, misogynistic friend, now a successful chick-lit author who returns home for the wedding.

Even though only four new episodes remain, Robert promises ‘there’s lots more to be seen at The Drake.’

666 Park Avenue is closing its doors for good in 2013, and according to Robert Buckley, none of the residents are guaranteed to check out alive! “No one is safe,” he told HollywoodLife.com on Dec. 9 at The Cinema Society’s screening of Stand Up Guys at the MoMA in NYC, sponsored by Chrysler and Bally. “At least one person, if not more, are in serious peril.”

The script, which Robert described as “pretty nuts,” also answers any lingering questions fans have about New York City’s “most seductive address.”

“We are going to wrap it up nicely,” he assured us. “It’s going to be pretty good. To wrap it all up in an hour is hard, but [the writers] do a pretty great job of it.”

So what’s next for the former One Tree Hill star now that 666 Park Avenue is coming to an early end?

“Pilot season,” he told us. “I would love to get into comedy! I’ve done drama now. If it was an existing show, maybe New Girl, or Ben & Kate, or [It’s Always] Sunny in Philadelphia.”
