‘Chasing Life’ Season 2 Premiere Date Moved Up to July 6

ABC Family has pushed up the Season 2 premiere date for “Chasing Life.” The drama will now debut on Monday, July 6, rather than the originally-set Monday, Aug. 17.

With the scheduling change, the cabler’s summer schedule packs a drama-heavy Monday night with “The Fosters” at 8 p.m., new transgender docuseries “Becoming Us” at 9 p.m., and “Chasing Life” at 10 p.m. When “Fosters” wraps its summer run, drama “Switched at Birth” comes in with the second half of its fourth season.

Last season, “Chasing Life” and the CW’s “Jane the Virgin” — both shows that are popular among young, female viewers — were paired up against each other. With the new premiere date and time slot, the two shows will not compete in the fall.

Star Italia Ricci announced the new premiere date Friday on her Instagram.

Premiere UPDATE!! The new season now starts Monday July 6 at 10/9c!!! Who. Is. Pumped?!?! 🙌🏻

The new season of “Chasing Life” will see much change, as the final episode of Season 1 ended with April (Ricci) accepting Leo’s (Scott Michael Foster) proposal at the hospital where she is battling cancer, which returned at the end of the season. In light of re-entering treatment, she also quit her job as a newspaper reporter.
