The Secret Life of the American Teenager is a family drama series on ABC which centers on teen pregnancy. Amy Juergens (Shailene Woodley) is a smart and talented girl who plays the French horn in the school marching band. The Secret Life of the American Teenager is produced by Brenda Hampton (7th Heaven) and directed by Ron Underwood (Eli Stone). It’s finally here — the series finale of The Secret Life of the American Teenager airs TONIGHT! Meanwhile, Adrian (Francia Raisa) is ecstatic when an unexpected visitor knocks on her door.
Stars Shailene Woodley, Megan Park, Greg Finley, Renee Olstead, and Amy Rider opened up about their characters evolution during the five seasons of the show. There are just five days until the series premiere of The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Stars Shailene Woodley, Daren Kagasoff, Ken Baumann, Francia Raisa, Megan Park, Greg Finley, Allen Evangelista and Camille Winbush all sat down to dish on their favorite moments and scenes throughout the series.
Greg Finley, Megan Park, Daren Kagasoff, Shailene Woodley, Ken Baumann and Francia Raisa all re-created their first cast pic together for the final season of the ABC Family show. The final season of The Secret Life of the American Teenager is back on March 18th on ABC Family.
In the episode “To Each Her Own,” Amy (Shailene Woodley) and Ricky (Daren Kagasoff) continue planning their wedding, so Amy buys her dress – at a thrift store.
Meanwhile, Ricky is upset about the dress and Adrian (Francia Raisa) thinks the dress reflects her feelings about getting married.
The cast of The Secret Life of the American Teenager gathers together for one last group pic on the last day of production on Monday afternoon (November 5) in Burbank, Calif. Shailene Woodley, Megan Park, Renee Olstead, Francia Raisa, Allen Evangelista, Daren Kagasoff and Ken Baumann all tweeted their thoughts to their fans. Daren Kagasoff lets out a big laugh with Shailene Woodley in this new still from the special holiday episode of The Secret Life of the American Teenager. The Secret Life of the American Teenager is ending after five seasons, THR has confirmed with the network. The series, whose pilot episode broke the record for the highest rated debut on ABC Family, starred Shailene Woodley, Megan Park, Francia Raisa, Ken Baumann, Daren Kagasoff, Greg Finley and more. The show will debut its fifth season in March 2013, and by the time it wraps, will have aired 120 episodes.
The Secret Life of the American Teenager focused on the unplanned pregnancy of Amy Juergens (Woodley) and how it affected her, her family and her friends. On Adrian's past: "You learn more of Adrian's backstory about why she's so into the sex and why it's not so dramatic for her like most people," said Francia. On "Regrets," everyone cut the BS and started coming clean about where they were in their lives. I really agreed with what Kathleen said about the purity ring putting more interest in sex for Grace.
For an hour spent talking about Jack, the least this show could've done in "Half Over" was show him at some point. The promos said "Who will say goodbye?" Spoiler alert that nobody cares about: It was Dylan. Dylan decided that friends are the most important thing, and that she and her obnoxious little posse would follow Wendy to an all-girls school. Meanwhile, Ben is determined to get Amy back, so much so that he's sharpened his detective skills and found out that Amy and Ricky aren't really married. There were a few other romantic developments, too, such as Anne and her new girlfriend and Ethan and Kathy. ABC Family has pulled the plug on The Secret Life Of The American Teenager, effective in mid-2013. The Secret Life of The American Teenager premiered in 2008 and established ABC Family as a player in the cable network game. It’s been a Paley-filled week for my Notebook, as the 30th Annual PaleyFest continues with casts and creators of your favorite shows speaking on seasons past and episodes to come. In this week’s edition, I empty out some fun from last night’s Parenthood panel, while including intel on the series finale of The Secret Life of the American Teenager and a big question on a possible romantic pairing on The Carrie Diaries. PARENTHOOD While we all wait for a green light for Season 5, Lauren Graham shared her dismay when she realized her ex on Parenthood, Jason Ritter, had been cast opposite her former Gilmore Girls daughter, Alexis Bledel in a new Fox comedy pilot. She then sincerely added that Ritter and Bledel together on TV makes so much sense but that maybe Sarah should get a chance at some of Rory’s exes from GG and, yes, Jared Padalecki’s name came up. THE SECRET LIFE OF THE AMERICAN TEENAGER Think Amy (Shailene Woodley) and Ricky (Daren Kagasoff) will finally get their happy-ever-after ending when the series wraps up after Season 5? Kagasoff was coy during a recent press call and would only say that in the finale, “many questions will get answered, that’s all pretty much I can say. Kagasoff also shared that he’ll have fond memories of that last day of filming: “We shot a lot of intense scenes, and to wrap up the show the way we did -  I’ll never forget it. THE CARRIE DIARIES Besides all the romantic ups and downs with young Carrie Bradshaw, one of my personal favorite relationships is the friendship between Sebastian (Austin Butler) and Mouse (Ellen Wong). With ABC announcing that this drama will call it quits after Season 5, the network has now released the first official trailer for Monday's spring premiere - and it's rather clear Amy will be faced with some monumental life decisions before this classic series goes off the air. I don't know whether to have a good feeling or a bad feeling about the final episodes of Secret Life of The American Teenager.
The was so much doubt cast over their future in the spring premiere that I'm worried the writers have a different ending in mind than the one I have been betting on for five years. Did she really buy it because she spotted a fantastic deal on a one of a kind designer gown and saw her dream of being Ricky's wife and beginning their life together coming true on a level she couldn't otherwise imagine in their circumstances? That wouldn't make you feel pretty, and without the benefit of Amy's imagination, all we saw was an ugly dress.
It seemed the harder she tried to get support from her friends and family about the dress and tried to get them to see the beauty of her future in it, the more rejection she got from them, and the more she questioned her future.
Omar spotted the gown for what it was on the outside, and was one of the only friends to commend her on sticking by Ricky and John and living together as a family. When Ricky finally apologized about his reaction to the dress, he said if she could make a man out of him, then she could make a lovely dress out of those rags.
It was annoying to me that Ben could look at Amy with a straight face and accept her sentiment when he's wishing her life falls apart so he can catch her. Anne is still dating Willadean, Nora's AA sponsor, and George had a hay day hitting on her. It was totally unexpected that Anne's old boss and boyfriend, David, popped back into the picture as a possibility to be Robby's father. On last week's spring premiere of The Secret Life of the American Teenager, it seemed pretty evident to most viewers that Amy wasn't all that happy in her life or her relationship. In "It's a Miracle" we got to see into the mind of the other half of our main couple: Ricky.
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like Ricky is too eager to walk down the aisle with Amy either. It took Ricky and Amy a long time to get to where they are now and while things seemed better for the couple on this week's episode, it's always a roller coaster.
But she has friends and school and some sense of normalcy after being a pregnant 15-year old and that is an important need.

When I first met her I thought she needed me because she didn't have him, but she didn't need either of us.
Jack, on the other hand, should definitely seek some therapy after the ordeal he went through.
Is it me or does The Secret Life of the American Teenager always spend an entire episode like it's one big game of telephone?
In "Untying the Knot" - slowly but surely - Ricky's and Amy's parents finally all found out the secret too. It seems like Amy and Ricky's only friend who does want them to go through with the wedding is Grace. Seriously, writers, we know the show is ending - but you could've come up with a better excuse! On The Secret Life of the American Teenager, it was finally that time of year when high school students go to visit potential colleges.
Jack has been battling post traumatic stress disorder since he was attacked by that pimp in The Secret Life of the American Teenager season 5 finale. How about that temper tantrum Adrian threw when Omar said he was taking the red-eye to New York for 24 hours to have lunch with his 73-year-old boss? With Amy still visiting school in New York, Ricky was left to handle things on his own when there was an incident at John's day care.
In "Fraid So,"The Secret Life of the American Teenager writers told us a bunch of important facts, including the not always known reality that toddlers bite.
Amy took the assumption upon herself to think that John was acting out because she went to New York. Something I'm finding really frustrating is how the writers are choosing to spend this remaining season. The fans deserve to see where these characters are going to go and how the show is going to wrap up! In "Money for Nothin'" Ben and Amy found out that they committed to Hudson University when they first applied, a fact they didn't realize. If you were really in love with Ricky and cared what he thought, you wouldn't even consider coming to school here in New York.
Ricky knows this is a possibility so he's doing everything he can do on his end to make it work. Another week on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, another week of unresolved issues. In "Interference" Amy misplaced her rings, causing a lot of tension in her already shaky relationship with fiancee Ricky. The trouble with Amy and Ricky is that they both do a lot of talking, just never to each other. Normally I rag on Madison and Lauren because their characters have always kind of sucked, but I was actually glad for once that they spoke to Ricky. The series takes a closer look on the lives of six teenagers, as they face the dramas and issues that define who they really are and what they are capable of.
Amy gets her life turned upside-down when she discovers that she is pregnant with Ricky Richardson’s (Daren Kagasoff) kid. Molly Ringwald is best known for her Golden Globe-nominated performance in Paul Mazursky’s The Tempest. Kathy (Cierra Ramirez) is conflicted about going back home after having the baby, and Ethan begs his parents to let him fly to Texas with her to ask Kathy’s parents if she can stay.
Jack wasn't embarrassed to be honest about his life and decisions, even though a camera was there.
He started off like a little weasel, but he seems to care about Kathy and wasn't tempted by her slutty, backstabbing friends. Do you think they'll go together to New York and usher in the new chapter of The Secret Life of the American Teenager? The more you are focused on virginity and talking about it, the more you are gonna obsess over it. Once again, The Secret Life of the American Teenager used an event to promote itself and then short changed the audience. I still think it's weird how quickly Ben went from obsessing about Dylan to obsessing about Amy. I just hate when a series uses one thing for a promotion and then the episode is mostly about something else. Ben and Amy got into the same college and Ricky is obsessing about what it means and if Amy wants to leave him. Leo and Camille moved ahead with their adoption and took in the prostitute that Jack saved. Lastly, we were treated to the most blatant PSA ever to air on The Secret Life of the American Teenager. It's responsible for the impressive slate of programming across that network today, which includes such breakouts as Pretty Little Liars and Bunheads. On a positive note, she finally bought one, which would indicate she's ready to move forward with the wedding. Or, as Adrian surmised, did purchasing that ugly dress somehow portray her true feelings about where she stands with Ricky - she made a decision to do the right thing and now she's stuck with it. As long as she is still getting jealous, there is still something left to lose, so I was happy for that development.
With the way he looked at her as he left the restaurant, he's going to have doubts about Amy. Even now that he's dating Kathleen, he still can't help himself from making passes at the gay women trying to turn them straight. There isn't one untangled web on the show, and it seems Secret Life of the American Teenager Season 5 will finish off much as it started - a giant, entangled mess.
While I don't think that Ricky and Adrian are endgame (I love her and Omar) I do understand how easy it can be to compare people to your first love.
He didn't realized he loved Kathy until after she gave birth and he knew loved her just for her, not out of some weird sympathy pain. It's great he thinks he has a higher calling for his future, but he should probably deal with healing in the present. In "Shiny and New," Grace left Jack to visit a few schools and Ben and Amy headed to New York.
Jack lied to Ricky and Adrian and told them that Grace has wanted him at the house since the attack, but really he's the one who is terrified to leave. This isn't news or anything, but Ben went through hell and back over the past few seasons with losing his baby and then he just threw caution to the wind. It would be one thing to spend time on newer characters if the show was continuing and people we're being replaced, but we're going out with the same characters we met in season one. So all kidding aside, here's a real question: Is Amy truly considering going to school at Hudson University and uprooting Ricky and John's lives.
Amy may ask questions that make it seem like she's considering other people in her decision, but she's not. However, Ben being Ben he had to follow that up with a real burn and tell Amy that her dreams were dead when he met her. I feel like we finally got to see more of what Amy's really thinking in her college decision.

Take Ricky, for example: he spent the entire episode talking about his relationship with Amy but it was to George, Lauren and Madison. I felt really bad for him when he admitted "I don't even know if she likes me." That should never be a sentence you utter about someone you are in a relationship with!
If you own the rights to any of the images and do not wish them to appear on the site please contact us, and they will be promptly removed! It's probably not in the cards for him to go after a married woman either, but Amy is Amy and she will always be important to Ben. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Ricky and Amy would fight less if they would communicate more.
When they really do get married, Ben says he will be waiting at the back of the church to pull a move from The Graduate and run away with her. Their start was rocky but they learned to communicate in ways adults can only aspire to do, and that's how you build a lasting relationship.
If nobody could imagine what she could make out of a dirty dress, then how could they believe she and Ricky could make a beautiful life together with what little they had?
Instead of just tossing the trophy as he almost did, Ricky took it back and returned it to Clementine, when he learned she had an entire collection of Ricky memorabilia from their childhood. It was obvious because at that same moment, Amy finally told Ben she hopes he finds someone to love because even though his obsession with her has kept her afloat through the rough times, he needs to find a love of his own. Kathy seemed happy to see him (and she got to fly first class), but that's going to be one hard sell to her parents in Texas. It took him a long time to know he was in love with her and those feelings are definitely there but he doesn't feel like it's truly reciprocated. Your first love is usually a benchmark that you hold all other relationships to whether good or bad.
They understand each other's hopes and dreams and want to build a life and future together.
Did she let Clementine in on her suspicions to help her out because she knows Clementine loves Ricky? I love that Omar anticipated her reaction and knows to laugh it off when she gets like that. Mom but as Ricky himself said, it's been a long time since he's done a full day and night with a little kid. Their two-minute interaction on the phone was so clipped and awkward, it was painful to watch; especially if you've been a longtime Ricky and Amy fan. While some of the parents have always been integral to the show, I want to see more screen time for Ricky, Amy, Ben, Adrian and Grace. I will at least say I'm happy to see George doing well and interacting with all of the teens.
After last week's Secret Life I would say probably not, that she was just entertaining a fantasy.
In the words of Cher Horowitz, "That was way harsh Tai." People develop new dreams as they grow up. Little did he know that Ben had creepily slipped Amy's rings in his pocket while she was sleeping! While I feel bad for Ricky as we watch him do whatever he can to make things work, maybe he should also think about if he really wants to get married. The only problem is, Amy couldn’t find the right timing to reveal to her would-be boyfriend Ben Boykewich (Kenny Baumann) her present situation. But there's always that question in the back of my mind, like, he is the father, so could he be my boyfriend one day? I thought Leo didn't want to raise another kid for 18 years; perhaps they are adopting an older child?
Next week Grace will have a lot more to worry about with that closing scene between Jack and the pimp. Even though I think everyone on this show is rushing down the aisle, I thought that moment was really sweet. It's even more interesting that due to Tom's phone call we found out that Betty knows the pimp who hurt Jack. Amy and Ricky are going to keep us guessing until the very end, when all I really want is about seven episodes of absolute love and happiness without any third party interference.
Ben knows first hand what happens when you fall in love with someone who had a baby with another boy.
Ricky went on to say that he hadn't cheated, and he wasn't even thinking of Adrian, but he definitely did think about it.
I know that Anne was throwing Amy and Ricky a wedding, but she was doing it in George's backyard and planning it with Nora and Margaret. He also kind of gave away the truth when he so eagerly offered to stay with Ricky or Adrian if they needed any help around the house. He was so angry that morning that he demanded his ring back from Amy and a few hours later he was fine. This gave Ricky a lot of time to think about what life might be like if Amy decides to go to New York. It didn't help anybody that Ben immaturely texted people that he was on Amy and Omar's fight. Also, when did Ricky start walking around with a sign on his head that says "please give me your opinion on my relationship." Does nobody have boundaries anymore?
Apparently it was enough for Amy to overhear, rush in all loving, and ask to set a wedding date. There's a lot drama just in the sense that my boyfriend, Ben, gets very jealous of Ricky because he's at my house every night taking care of the baby. Between his apology to Camille and determination to get Henry and Alice back together, Ben is in a good place. They want to have a long engagement and have kids after they are both graduated and settled into their careers.
Your daughter paid her dues she doesn't need to walk around with her head hung low and feeling guilty. I know Lucy Camden or whatever her name is on this show wants him to get counseling - but I think he might be thinking clearly for the first time in a long time.
Also, as someone who has been watching this show since it began and reviewing it for almost as long, I saw a lot of growth in Daren Kagasoff's acting. She started to build a life for herself at her grandmother's in California and if that was solely based around a guy I'd say she shouldn't have returned. But Grace shouldn't forget her own crazy days when she thought that her premarital sex caused her dad's plane to crash. I believe she does, but I think she'll always care for Ricky and was trying to prove a point. Her parents even gave her a promise ring as a reminder of her purity pledge with her boyfriend.
