Comic-Con 2014, here we come! Where earlier on Warner Bros' DC dramas gave us a heads up that they'd bundle together for a major Comic-Con panel on Saturday, including 'Arrow' season 3, 'Gotham,' 'The Flash' and 'Constantine,' the full slate of WB's involvement is far grander. Find out when you can catch panels for 'The Big Bang Theory,' 'Supernatural,' 'Childrens Hospital' and more!
The Vampire Diaries
Of all The CW's upcoming fall 2014 premieres, we're most excited to return to the world of 'Arrow,' check out how 'The Flash' fits into it all, and catch up with the wily Winchester brothers of 'Supernatural.' Wait no longer to find out when each series races out of the gate, now that The CW released their full schedule of fall 2014 premieres!
Earlier today, 'Arrow' spinoff 'The Flash' raced out its first full trailer, but even as the last of the broadcast networks to reveal its full schedule, The CW was far from finished. The network issued its full fall 2014 schedule, pairing Barry Allen with the Winchester brothers and leaving a few other comic characters for midseason, while we've also got our first video looks at 'iZombie,' 'Jane the Virgin' and more.
'Supernatural''s own post-Olympic return this past week with "Captives" definitely moved the CW drama's ninth season pace forward a few notches, but it can't outrun the casting of spinoff 'Supernatural: Tribes'. 'Heroes' alum Danielle Savre and 'Vampire Diaries' vet Stephen Martines are the latest to join the 'Tribes' crew, but what new monsters can we expect to see?
A few weeks ago, The CW surprised us all with early guaranteed renewals for our personal favorites 'Arrow' and 'Supernatural,' as well as 'The Vampire Diaries' and freshman offerings 'The Originals' and 'Reign.' Not all of the network's series have been guaranteed additional seasons, but we at least have exact dates for their impending finales!
We're still on the fence as to whether The CW's aging 'Supernatural' really warrants a spinoff this late in the game, but, either way, 'Supernatural: Tribes' has begun assembling. 'Skins' alum Lucien Laviscount will take a leading role in the Chicago-set spinoff alongside 'The Vampire Diaries' alum Nathaniel Buzolic.
It only looks like Christmas outside on the east coast, but The CW has delivered early presents for fans of its most popular series, including 'Arrow,' 'Supernatural,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' its spinoff 'The Originals' and period soap 'Reign.' All five series have been renewed for additional seasons to carry into 2015!
We still don't know if 'Arrow''s 'The Flash' spinoff will be zooming onto The CW as its own series this fall, but its pilot supporting cast is at least picking up speed. 'The Vampire Diaries' star Rick Cosnett has joined the cast in a regular role speculated to be that of a major 'Flash' villain, along with Danielle Panabaker as someone with ties to the scarlet speedster's mysterious origins, and a villain in her own right!
Though the past week brought shocking and divisive news that 'Girls' star Adam Driver was potentially up for the role of Dick Grayson/Nightwing in 'Batman Vs. Superman,' we'd heard long before that Nightwing could potentially swoop into The CW's 'Arrow.' A 'Vampire Diaries' star has recently been suggesting himself in contention for the role, but is there any real truth to the rumor?
Granted, standards for The CW are far different than that of other broadcast networks like CBS or even NBC, it seems The CW has a full house in its fall 2013 lineup. Full-season orders have been given to 'The Vampire Diaries' offshoot 'The Originals,' as well as Amell-cousin fronted 'The Tomorrow People,' and the Mary Queen of Scots drama 'Reign.'
