It’s the not-so-secret question on all of our minds: How closely will The Secret Circle follow the book series that it’s based on?

Executive producer Andrew Miller tells E! that Cassie (Britt Robertson) won’t be the good girl that we’ve come to know and love in the books. She falls in love with Adam (Thomas Dekker), which “brings her into these dark feelings in herself,” says Miller. “We start this journey with Cassie between good and evil inside herself that relates to her mom and dad.”

Who doesn’t love a good girl who has some bad blood running through her veins?

Miller also reveals that some familiar faces from the books might make an appearance in the TV show. “I think it's a really fun way to introduce characters, especially for people who love the book series,” he says. “We might incorporate a character like Black John. He might be renamed.”

How about Black Magic John? It keeps the integrity of the name, but makes it sound, you know... about a thousand times less offensive.
