Entertainment Weekly & Cinemablend have the scoop on the first look at “Petals on the Wind” as well as announcing a May 26th, 8pm Premiere date! Lifetime seem to be in hurry to get this latest instalment out to us which is all very exciting. First look/press pictures of characters often changes/differs from the actual look in the film but - judging by the pictures from EW - this time around the story looks set in a period between the 60’s & 70’s. Willkemp.org looks forward to seeing Will bring “Cathy’s damaged dancer boyfriend” to life!
