Burbank, CA (Wednesday, December 16, 2009) – The Cyprus Rhodes students are preparing for the “Help Us Rebuild Our Castle Fairytale Ball” for the Gamma Psi’s – some out of guilt – by picking out their best prince and princess attire. But will they all be living happily ever after? Find out with the mid-season premiere of ABC Family’s “Greek” at a new time beginning Monday, January 25 (10:00 – 11:00PM ET/PT). The series will return with ten all-new episodes airing through March 29, 2010.

The season begins with an episode entitled “I Know What You Did Last Semester” as the ZBZ ladies are on edge thinking they may have been responsible for the Gamma Psi house burning down. Casey (Spencer Grammer), Ashleigh (Amber Stevens), and Rebecca (Dilshad Vadsaria) lead their sorority sisters in an effort to hide all evidence pointing to the fact that they snuck into the Gamma Psi house prior to the big fire. Additionally, Casey struggles to hide their big secret from Cappie (Scott Michael Foster) which clearly puts a strain their new relationship.

The Kappa Taus are all in mourning since Wade, Jeremy and Ferret were expelled as a result of their “joint prank” with the Omega Chis. Rusty (Jacob Zachar) attempts to fill Wade’s shoes as pledge educator but quickly realizes that, not surprisingly, the KT pledges are tough to control!

Meanwhile, Calvin (Paul James) makes a difficult decision about his relationship with Grant (Gregory Michael) as Grant continues to struggle with whether or not to come out to their Omega Chi brothers. Evan (Jake McDorman) isn’t sure how to act around Rebecca since they got together, but in the end, the two bond over their lack of faith in fairytales. Dale (Clark Duke) hires interns to handle all of his dirty work and on the surface, his relationship with Rusty seems to be fine, but only because they haven’t found out which of them will win the grant money yet.

This season, “Greek” will feature guest appearance by Martha MacIsaac (Superbad), Sam Page (“Mad Men”), and Lea Thompson (“Caroline in the City”). Sam Page plays “Joel,” a political aide that worked for Rebecca’s father. Casey is hoping he can help her with a job. Martha MacIsaac plays “Dana,” a fellow engineering student who has a crush on Rusty. And Lea Thompson plays Cappie’s mother “April.”


The returning guest cast includes Nora Kirkpatrick as “Kathryn,” Aaron Hill as “Beaver,” Aynsley Bubbico as “Laura,” and Zack Lively as “Heath.”

Additionally, the season will see a musical appearance by Hollywood Record’s recording artists, “Alpha Rev.”  “Alpha Rev” will perform a cover of “Don’t You Forget About Me” by Simple Minds, and the band’s original song “New Morning” off their upcoming album of the same name will also be featured in the episode.  “Alpha Rev’s” album “New Morning” is expected to be out in March. The episode featuring “Alpha Rev’s appearance will air on Monday, March 15 (10:00 – 11:00 p.m. ET/PT)
