And so it goes for fall 2013 that The CW has become the third major network to release its premiere schedule of the coming year. Once more, The CW will hold off on its major premieres until October in avoidance of competition from the other networks, holding some of its new and returning sci-fi series on deck for midseason.

A few weeks ago the major networks released both truncated and, later on, full trailers for their new offerings, while The CW largely released extended clips from each new series. That all changed tonight as the teen-centric network released the full set of trailers for its upcoming, sci-fi heavy season, including 'The Vampire Diaries' spinoff 'The Originals,' sci-fi dramas 'The Tomorrow People,' 'The 100' and 'Star-Crossed,' and period soap 'Reign'!
Just hours after airing two of its biggest finales in both 'Arrow' and 'Supernatural,' The CW has joined the Upfront ranks to introduce some major changes into its fall lineup. No longer paired together are 'Arrow' and 'Supernatural,' as the latter moves to Tuesdays to help launch 'Vampire Diaries' spinoff 'The Originals,' while 'Nikita's' confirmed final season will be held to 2014. Find out about the big CW schedule changes inside!
The hits just keep on coming! After NBC announced that it would renew five of its major series for additional 22-episode seasons, now The CW has followed suit with a few pickups of their own. Not only will 'The Vampire Diaries' spin-off 'The Originals' officially go to series, but freshman drama 'Beauty and the Beast' and Rachel Bilson's 'Hart of Dixie' will return for additional seasons as well!
For months now we've been hearing about the 'Vampire Diaries' Klaus-centric spinoff 'The Originals,' to be presented in a backdoor pilot in the April 25 'TVD' episode of the same name. Now, in addition to the teasery photos we've seen, The CW has given us our first official look at 'The Originals' through its trailer, but can Joseph Morgan's Klaus hack it on his own in New Orleans?
The CW seems to have opened a hole in its fall lineup recently, removing 'Cult' off the schedule in a move that likely represents cancellation. And while 'The Vampire Diaries' has already been renewed for a fifth season, will upcoming backdoor pilot / spinoff 'The Originals' find a place on the lineup? The April 25 episode already has its own full poster, so check it out inside and learn what will happen when Klaus moves to New Orleans!
Similar to what's going on with 'Once Upon A Time' these days, hit CW drama 'The Vampire Diaries' will soon test the waters of a spinoff when April 25 episode "The Originals" serves as a backdoor pilot for a potential Klaus-centric spinoff of the same name. The new series would be set in the majesty of New Orleans and feature characters old and new, so how would you like a first look at the new series for 'Vampire Diaries' fans everywhere?
We make no secret of our unabashed love for The CW favorites 'Supernatural' and 'The Vampire Diaries' as well as freshman hit DC drama 'Arrow.' And while none of the three series were in any real danger of cancellation as TV production rolls through pilot season on to springs network renewal announcements, The CW has dropped a blessed bombshell on us by renewing all three for additional seasons in advance! Find out what the network has to say about the decision to renew 'Supernatural,' 'Arrow' and 'The Vampire Diaries' inside!
A few weeks ago we brought the game-changing news for 'The Vampire Diaries' fans that the show's April 25 episode would serve as a backdooor pilot for potential spin-off vehicle 'The Originals,' following fan-favorite character Klaus (Joseph Morgan) as he returns to New Orleans' French Quarter. The CW has yet to make any kind of official decision regarding the spin-off, but for now 'The Originals' has cast yet another familiar face for the episode. Prior guest star Daniel Gillies will reprise his role as Elijah for the episode, becoming a regular on the spin-off, but is 'The Originals' a sure thing?
