CBS president Les Moonves fielded a number of questions today from the ongoing TCA press tour panels, including some controversial remarks about The CW operating at something of a loss. Regardless of the financials however, there's good news for CW fans as 'Supernatural,' 'The Vampire Diaries' and 'The Originals' have all been given earlier premieres, while the 'Whose Line Is It Anyway' revival has been confirmed for a second season.
The Vampire Diaries
Kicking off the penultimate panel of Saturday’s TV schedule, the cast and crew of The CW’s ‘The Vampire Diaries’ assembled in Ballroom 20 at Comic-Con today to preview the coming fifth season! From glimpses of life on the other side, to the collegiate road ahead and plenty of tantalizing hookups, hear what the stars and creative minds behind The CW’s major supernatural hit have to say going into the fifth season, with a spin-off in tandem!
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything from 'The Vampire Diaries' upcoming fifth season, but now it seems in advance of next week's Comic-Con 2013 panel, the details have begun to trickle out. The Mystic Falls series had added two mysterious new players to the fifth season in the form of Russian model-actress Olga Fonda and 'Greek' star Kendrick Sampson, but who will the new stars play?
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.
Comic-Con 2013 is nearly upon us, as July 17-21 will once again see legions of pop culture fanatics descend on San Diego to celebrate their favorite properties and we’ll be on hand once again to bring you all of the TV and Movie coverage straight from San Diego! From 'The Walking Dead' season 4 to 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' and 'Game of Thrones,' we've got your complete Comic-Con TV panel schedule to check out from this year's event.
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!
