There’s no denying the surge in CW popularity over the last few years, with superhero series like Arrow, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow dominating weekdays, while Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend bring home Golden Globes. Still, the network remains relatively small against the big four, so might CW owners look toward yet another cord-cutter streaming service?
The Vampire Diaries
The CW had itself a banner day, dropping some big news in the form of a Legends of Tomorrow trailer and premiere, simultaneously making waves with the rest of its 2016 schedule. We now know when The 100 will return for Season 3, what it means for The Vampire Diaries, and what fans of iZombie and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend can look forward to.
Arrow and Flash fans have quite a bit to look forward to in the coming weeks and Comic-Con, hopefully enough to tide a bit of bad news. Both CW superheroes have set their returns for Seasons 2 and 4 this October, along with other network series the likes of Supernatural, Jane the Virgin and more.
Marvel may be sitting out Comic-Con 2015 (at least on the movies side) but good grief if DC isn’t pumping everything they have into San Diego this year, big screen and small. Warner Bros. TV has set a whopping 18 shows to have a presence at Comic-Con, including another “Superhero Saturday Night” for the likes of Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl and more.
Well hello there, TV super-fan! Did you know that Breaking Bad breakout Jesse Pinkman was almost killed off in Season 1? How about that Joss Whedon hated the original Buffy theme song, or Curb Your Enthusiasm served as a murder alibi? Can you imagine LOST starring Michael Keaton? Why yes, we do have more where that came from!
Fans of The Vampire Diaries, we have both good news and bad. On the plus side, we’ve just discovered that the sexy supernatural soap is still on the air, and airing its sixth season at that, so hooray! In less hooray news however, series star Nina Dobrev has decided to leave The Vampire Diaries behind after the current run. Who will write the Diaries, or … uh, Vampire the Vampires now? Is that what happens on this show?
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.
We weren’t entirely surprised to find CBS getting in on the TV superhero game with Greg Berlanti’s development of DC’s ‘Supergirl,’ but the titular superheroine’s first casting rumor may yet surprise fans of The CW’s existing DC dramas. ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and spinoff The Originals’ star Rebecca Holt is the first name tossed into the goblet for CBS’s forthcoming superhero series, but how likely is she to be our new ‘Supergirl’?
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!
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!
