Just as Arrow suits up for its final episodes of Season 5, the end is already here. The end for all CW shows, that is, as everyone from Supergirl to Jane The Virgin and those sexy murder-teens at Riverdale set season (or series) finale dates from May through June.
You’re not crazy, but Rob Thomas is definitely a little unwell. The late Matchbox 20 singer’s fate gets name-checked in a first official clip from next week’s iZombie Season 3 premiere, as all Team Z’s secrets are brought to light.
iZombie just wouldn’t be iZombie without the brains, and Season 3 is looking like a diverse menu. See Major start a selfie obsession, while Team Z gets their Scooby-Doo on in the first full trailer for the April 4 premiere.
The CW’s iZombie may be slowest to the finish line in terms of 2017 premieres and looming renewals, but Team Z is nonetheless ready at the starting gate. A new teaser brings Team Z’s return in the first Season 3 footage, along with photos fresher than a delicious brain.
It’d be too much to ask for Supergirl to start crossing universes with every CW show, but we might have the next best thing. iZombie star Rahul Kohli will guest star in an upcoming episode as a notable DC villain (and Lena Luthor’s ex), but new word suggests Calista Flockhart’s Cat Grant might not return for Season 2 after all.
The CW’s iZombie is more or less bringing up the rear of 2017 debuts, but isn’t afraid to make a statement with its first Season 3 poster. See for yourself, as Rose McIver does her best Che Guevara in a stylized first look at the April premiere.
The CW is certainly entering December with a bang, but 2017 is when the landscape really starts to shift. Not only do we know when to expect returning favorites like The 100 and iZombie, but also freshman offerings like Riverdale, and the final graduation of The Vampire Diaries.
Even as The CW becomes a conglomerate of TV superheroes, you didn’t think the young-skewing network would let vampires go, did you? With The Vampire Diaries on its way out, and The Originals approaching a middle, The CW has in mind to reboot vampire classic The Lost Boys with a surprisingly ambitious generational twist.
Welp, if ever you wanted to overload on TV superheros, have we got a Comic-Con for you! Warner Bros. TV has officially loaded up on 21 series headed to San Diego this year, from Flash to Supergirl to Powerless, Justice League Action, and a few non-superhero series like The Big Bang Theory, The 100, and Animaniacs. You may have heard of them.
It’s easy to take the streaming availability of network shows for granted, whether Hulu’s ability to screen most-episodes next day, or Netflix’s new season availability ahead of premieres, but CW viewers in particular are in for good news and bad. CW shows will become available on Netflix much, much faster, but at the cost of their Hulu availability.
