Burbank, CA (Monday, July 27, 2009) � ABC Family presents another semester of theme parties, sisterhood rivalry and � oh yeah � making the grades with an all new season of "Greek," premiering Monday, August 31 (9:00 � 10:00PM ET/PT). The series will return with ten all-new episodes airing through November.
"Greek" picks up where it left off, with the events from last season's "End of the World" party dramatically revealing themselves in the first episode entitled "The Day After." After learning of Max's departure, Cappie (Scott Michael Foster) wonders if he made the right decision by telling Casey he wasn't interested in giving their relationship another chance, while Casey (Spencer Grammer) struggles with the aftermath of Cappie's unexpected rejection; Rebecca's (Dilshad Vadsaria) late night kiss with a mystery man can't stay a secret for too long; and Rusty (Jacob Zachar) risks failing in o-chem and losing his honor status, while roommate Dale (Clark Duke) faces a huge moral dilemma.
And if campus drama weren't enough, add family dynamics to the mix as ZBZ celebrates father-daughter weekend, with guest stars Kadeem Hardison (Ashleigh's father, Brian), Thomas Calabro (Rebecca's father, Senator Ken Logan), Tom Amandes (Jordan's father, Jack) and Jerry Lambert (Casey's father, Russell.)
Thanks to their less than stellar pledge class, the ZBZ house also begins sliding in the ranks among the other sorority houses. Casey, Rebecca and Ashleigh do everything they can to maintain their status as one of the top houses at Cyprus Rhodes. ZBZ pledge Abby (Olesya Rulin) drives Casey crazy when she expresses her disappointment in the lack of party invites and questions the sorority's relationship with the popular fraternities.
Also, a new hottie waitress, Lana (Olivia Munn), hits the Cyprus-Rhodes scene and captures the eye of a big man on campus.
Created by Patrick Sean Smith, "Greek" is executive produced by Piller/Segan in association with ABC Family. The cast includes Jacob Zachar as Rusty, Spencer Grammer as Casey, Scott Michael Foster as Cappie, Jake McDorman as Evan, Clark Duke as Dale, Dilshad Vadsaria as Rebecca, Paul James as Calvin, and Amber Stevens as Ashleigh.
