It’s a fine day to air on The CW, as the network’s TCA press tour panel brings some seriously good news. Not only will ‘Arrow’ return for season 4 along with ‘The Flash’ season 2, but so too will ‘Supernatural’ live to hunt another day, ‘Jane the Virgin’ keep up the search for love, ‘The Vampire Diaries’ continue…writing…diaries about vampires, and…you know what? They renewed a lot of shows. That’s what happened.

Of all The CW’s future offerings, we’ve been most ravenous for a taste of comic-adaptation ‘iZombie,’ as developed by Rob Thomas of ‘Veronica Mars’ fame. Now, the delicious brains at the network have finally scheduled ‘iZombie’'s spring debut, along with a brand-new trailer for the series.
‘The Flash’ was more than happy to share secrets of his 2015 return recently, but ‘Arrow’ teasers following midseason 3 finale “The Climb” have been much more secretive on Oliver Queen’s future. No longer, as the latest trailer for the Emerald Archer’s 2015 return brings the rise of a Canary, the birth of an A.T.O.M., and even a Brick for good measure! Plus…could a certain pit lie in Oliver Queen’s future?
Earlier today ‘The Flash’ threw out a second Weather Wizard in the form of ‘Spartacus’ star Liam McIntyre, but why let the bringer of rain have all the fun? The latest 2015 trailer for ‘The Flash’’s return introduces ‘Smash’ star Andy Mientus as DC’s villainous Pied Piper, along with new looks at ‘Prison Break’-ing baddies Captain Cold and Heat Wave.
The Bringer of Rain lives! Where casting ‘Spartacus’ alum in notable DC roles has typically proven ‘Arrow’'s game, ‘The Flash’ seems to have stolen a bit of thunder in landing the man himself. Liam McIntyre has officially been tapped to bring the rain anew as ‘The Flash’'s second incarnation of DC’s Weather Wizard in an upcoming episode.
We’ve had a few weeks to sit on ‘Arrow’'s midseason finale cliffhanger “The Climb,” and while we won’t know the full outcome of Oliver’s duel with Ra’s al Ghul until the latter half of January 2015, Starling City won’t be slacking in the meantime. Get a look at ‘Arrow’'s 2015 return, with the first full synopsis for the DC drama’s 2015 return, “Left Behind!”
We weren’t surprised to see ‘The Flash’ taking care of ‘Arrow’ cousin and ‘Tomorrow People’ castoff Robbie Amell after the latter’s cancellation, but it seems yet another evolved human will make their way to Central City as well. Peyton List will appear in an upcoming 2015 episode of ‘The Flash,’ playing none other than Captain Cold’s sister, DC’s “Golden Glider.”
‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its ninth installment of the year with midseason finale “The Climb,” as Oliver faces off with Ra's al Ghul over the identity of Sara's killer, while Laurel is forced to confront her family with the truth, and Felicity discovers the scope of Ray Palmer's plans for Starling City.
In honor of the Fall finale of ‘The Flash,’ I thought I’d steal a page from fellow ScreenCrush writer Mike Ryan and ask twenty questions about tonight’s episode, “The Man In The Yellow Suit.” Did the reveal of The Reverse-Flash make any sense?
‘Star Wars’ icon Mark Hamill will soon reprise one of his most legendary roles, and we’re not talking about Luke Skywalker. The ‘Force Awakens’ star will return to different roots for The CW’s ‘The Flash’ in an upcoming episode, reprising his role from the 1990's CBS series as DC villain The Trickster, but with a tricky twist!
