Jana didn't want to reveal too much but she did tell us that her character Alex Dupre is only in the first two episodes. WHAT?!?! She wouldn't tell us why Alex exits the show, but we're going to guess that her character is heading out to pursue her music career, much like Jana is in real life.
But Jana did promise us that fans of the show will love season 9. "It's awesome, it's fun, the writing's great. Mark Schwahn is a genius and it'll be a really great ending for everyone who's watched it since the beginning."
Check out the rest of our interview to find out what it was like for Jana remaking a classic song from 'Footloose' and about her bond with Sophia Bush. Make sure to pick up Jana's version of "Let's Hear It For the Boy" on the 'Footloose' soundtrack, out now.
