Felicity fans might have noticed that toward the end of the series's May 22 finale, friend Elena was among the celebrants at a wedding, the same Elena who died weeks before in a car accident. There is a perfectly logical reason for the Lazarus-like reappearance the explanatory scenes were included in an early script of the finale but edited out of the actual episode due to time constraints.

However, the WB wants to cut the order down to 17, giving Feli only six more episodes when they return. Touchstone TV (the production company) is currently fighting that decision. So, as it stands, the episode order is still up in the air, and producers are currently shooting numero 17 as a "series" (curses!) finale, in case that's what it turns out to be. There is definitely not going to be another season.

1.16.02 - Don't count out TV's favorite curly-haired coed just yet. WB president Jordan Levin is denying a recent report that his four-year-old drama, Felicity, won't see a fifth season, insisting a final decision will be made when the show returns to the lineup in April. A source close to Felicity, meanwhile, tells TV Guide Online that although nothing's official, it's unlikely Keri Russell and co. will be back next fall. The insider adds that a lot depends on how Felicity's winter replacement -- Glory Days (debuting tonight at 9 pm/ET) -- performs over the next few weeks.

12.11.01 - Tangi Miller has been nominated for an NAACP Image award for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series. The awards will be presented on February 23rd in Los Angeles.

12.5.01 - Plan of Attack - What the WB had in mind for the "Felicity" star. Keri Russell's haircut is tame compared to what the WB writers had in store for her character....

12.4.01 - Felicity gets a Thumbs Up from the December 4th issue of Soap Opera Digest. "Senior Citizen" There's no denying that Felicity has learned about many things in college – love, friendship, independence. Now in her senior year, she's getting a crash course in adulthood.

After years of getting by with spur-of-the-moment decisions – following Ben to New York, dropping pre-med for art, waffling between Ben and Noel – Felicity's been hit hard by the realization that she needs to focus and find a path in life. Sure, she's intelligent and works hard, but the real world doesn't offer audits and incompletes. Adding to her woes is that: a) she cut financial ties to her doctor dad, b) she wasn't admitted to an honors art class and c) the once-directionless Ben has found his niche – in medicine.

All of this is forcing Felicity to make grown-up choices. We finally got a glimpse of a more purposeful Felicity as she pleaded for a student loan (rejected), scrounged for scholarships and eventually did something very un-Felicity like for money: entered a beauty contest. Tough problems, but in the end, she did learn something as she rejected Noel's offer of money and begged off calling her father for help. The writers and Keri Russell have done an outstanding job portraying the confusion and restlessness that seniors often experience as they prepare for the next stage in life.

Of course, our girl had even more on her plate when she dealt with that pregnancy scare – the result of another whimsical act (sleeping with both Ben and Noel). But we have no doubt she'll end up all the wiser for her folly.

11.27.00 - Wanda at E!Online says that if you heard a rumor that Keri Russell and Scott Speedman broke up, it's probably because Keri mentioned during a T-Day interview with David Letterman that she isn't dating anyone.

11.27.00 - From Wanda at E!Online: The WB has ordered six more episodes of Felicity, meaning that the show will definitely be back after Jack & Jill ends its run in March.

10.27.00 - Soap Opera Digest reports that Scott Foley married girlfriend Jennifer Garner ("Time of Your Life") on October 19th at their home in Los Angeles. The duo met on the set of "Felicity" when Garner portrayed Noel's ex-girlfriend Hannah. Joshua Jackson ("Dawson's Creek") was scheduled to take a break from filming in Wilmington, NC to attend the nuptials.

10.27.00 - The November 7th issue of Soap Opera Digest gives Felicity both a thumbs up and a thumbs down. Last season, Keri Russell chopped off her hair - and the show almost ended up on the chopping block. Fortunately, it was renewed and has begun the new season with positive changes.

First up? The intro. No longer must we watch the cast look pensive as elevator music plays. Instead, we see scenes from the past two seasons and listen to an upbeat tune.

Even more important, "Felicity" has become an ensemble show; Felicity's problems don't hog all the air time. In the season premiere, Felicity and Ben's relationship was tested when they shacked up in a raoch-ridden "hell hole"; Noel impulsively wed wild-child Natalie; Julie dealt with her birth father's death; Elena grew closer to Tracy. Even the comical characters had story. We enjoyed watching Gothic Meghan and nice-guy Sean's sweet romance and were happy when Javier (the funny Dean & DeLuca maanger) enrolled as a freshman.

But we do have a major gripe. Throughout the episode, everyone revealed their "true selves" to a hand-held camera under the guise of a documentary that Sean is making. This Blair Witch-meets-The Real World device was distracting and annoying. Unfortunately, it is an ongoing gimmick that we could do without. Watching stories unfold naturally is far more compelling than having characters literally tell us what they're thinking.

10.25.00 - Keri Russell and Scott Speedman were spotted at the Radiohead concert in Los Angeles last Friday night.

"'Felicity' is back in the winner's circle for the first time in over a year," says Marc Berman of industry newsletter The Programming Insider.

6.22.00 Scott Speedman's hair is #56 on Cosmo's sexiest list. Guess they didn't know what hit him.

6.22.00 From Wanda: "Now that all is said and smooched, it seems this season's only real same-sex kiss is the one that received no media attention at all: Javier and Samuel's passionate kiss at the altar during the Felicity finale. Even though they're not the hottest twosome on the tube, you gotta admit that was some serious tonsil hockey." [not sure what this was in reference to, but thought I'd throw it in].

6.22.00 TV Guide has a (new or old, anyone?) Felicity trivia quiz at their website. But you knew that.

6.3.00 Apparently, the WB is still blaming Felicity's shorned locks for the ratings drop, and has unofficially banned haircuts from the network -- Dawson & gang included. Oh my. Speaking of shorned locks, looks like Scott Speedman has decided to shave off his own, at least according to a picture in the latest issue of People magazine.

6.3.00 5/31 ratings: Unbelievably, Felicity (a rerun) popped Dawson with a 2.3/4 compared to Da Crickster's 2.2/4, for the first time in, well, a long time.

6.3.00 5/24 ratings info. from a WB press release: "FELICITY popped with a 3.5/9 in women 18-34, which was its best output in the time period and The WB's best in the time period since the final week of national coverage on WGN." Also, "FELICITY checked in with its best ratings in the eight weeks since it moved to Wednesday's in adults 18-34 (2.4/7), females 12-34 (3.9/10), persons 12-34 (2.5/7), female teens (4.9/16), women 18-49 (2.4/6) and adults 18-49 (1.7/4)." In English, we think it means it did pretty good.

Click here for the WB's official press release.

5.15.00 According to Media Week magazine, Felicity has been renewed. The WB will air 12 consecutive episodes to kick off season 3, then the show will go on hiatus (with another drama in its place), and return with 12 more brand new consecutive episodes to finish out the season. The main reason for this being, to avoid "rerun hell" [my words, not theirs].

Click here for the full sadistic scoop.

5.12.00 Wanda's pick: Felicity will be renewed come Tuesday, along with Roswell (which has already been renewed, by the way, according to Ultimate TV), Popular, and Making the Band. This is just speculation based on what she's heard, but since Wanda's pretty reliable I'd take it with a grain of pepper. On the other hand, just to report fairly here -- Ultimate TV does not list Felicity as one of the WB's likely pickups, instead indicating that everything but Oh Hairless One will be picked up (7th Hell, Charmless, the Cricksters, Unpopular, those bat people, etc.).

FELICITY even built 11% on DAWSON'S CREEK'S women 18-49 audience with a 2.0/5 compared to its lead-in's 1.8/5. Additionally, behind the strength of DAWSON'S CREEK, The WB finished Wednesday night atop all networks, in female teens with a 6.0, the only demographic not won by ABC (5.9), which aired "Celebrity Millionaire" Wednesday night."

5.4.00 It still ain't looking good: according to "Moriarty's" column at Ain't it Cool News, Felicity is supposedly on the verge of being cancelled any day now. Here's what he had to say: "Bad, bad, painful development season for them [the WB]. They're having the one for real that Fox was rumored to be having. They're likely to cancel FELICITY any day. Yes, it's true. They have a big sci fi show from Michael Piller of STAR TREK called DAY ONE that's a post-apocalyptic sort of thing. Also, two soft shows called GILMORE GIRLS and LEARNING CURVE both look good. Expect a few high profile flops from Scott Rosenberg, Aaron Spelling, and Josh Schwartz." [not sure how "official" this site is, so take it with a grain of salt, hair, etc. -- whatever works].
