About Life Unexpected

Life Unexpected was a heartwarming and poignant television show that aired in 2010 on The CW network. The show followed the story of Lux, a teenage girl who had been in and out of foster care her entire life, as she seeks to become emancipated and find her birth parents. Along the way, she meets her birth parents, Baze and Cate, who had given her up for adoption as a baby.

The show was praised for its realistic portrayal of the foster care system and the struggles that many children face in finding a permanent home. It also tackled issues such as teenage pregnancy, addiction, and the complexities of family relationships.

The cast of Life Unexpected was exceptional, with standout performances from Britt Robertson as Lux, Shiri Appleby as Cate, and Kristoffer Polaha as Baze. The chemistry between the three actors was palpable, and their performances brought a depth and authenticity to the show.

Despite its critical acclaim, Life Unexpected was unfortunately cancelled after only two seasons. However, the show has since gained a cult following and is remembered as a beloved and underrated gem of television.

Overall, Life Unexpected was a touching and well-crafted show that tackled important issues with heart and nuance. It remains a must-watch for fans of family dramas and coming-of-age stories.
