Ready to see grown up Cathy and Christopher?
Here are the first two character images from Lifetime’s Petals on the Wind, the sequel to ratings sensation Flowers in the Attic. Plus, we can also exclusively reveal the film’s premiere date: Scrap your Memorial Day plans, because you’re going to watching Petals on the Wind Monday, May 26 at 9 p.m.
The film stars Rose McIver (Once Upon a Time) as Cathy Dollanganger and Wyatt Nash (Pretty Little Liars) as her brother/secret attic lover Christopher Dollanganger. These two young-ish Flowers parts were recast because the sequel picks up a decade after the conclusion of the first film. Heather Graham also returns as their mother Corrine, while Cathy’s new boyfriend is played by Will Kemp (90210).
One photo shows a family portrait with a trio of blue-eyed Dollangangers decked out in swinging retro threads. Cathy in particular looks rather intense, doesn’t she? Then there’s a photo of Cathy and her abusive dancer paramour Julian, a relationship that leads her to confront the forbidden romance she had with her brother in the first film. Ellen Burstyn and Dylan Bruce will also reprise their roles in the film as grandmother Olivia and Corrine’s husband Bart, respectively.
Petals is based on the V.C. Andrews novel. The first film garnered 6.1 million viewers for Lifetime in its premiere. Check out the second image below:
