CW Fall Schedule Announced; SUPERNATURAL Moves to Tuesdays, ARROW Leads New Sci-Fi Series THE TOMORROW PEOPLE

by     Posted 337 days ago

Now that anchor series Gossip Girl and 90210 are off the schedule, the CW is reshuffling almost everything to give a push to new series (like putting Reign – a drama about Mary, Queen of Scots as a young woman in France — after veteran hit The Vampire Diaries).  Beauty and Beast, which had occupied that coveted post-Vampire Diaries spot before, has been moved to Mondays, and will air after new episodes of Hart of Dixie.  The changes also pair shows tonally, like new sci-fi series The Tormorrow People, which will premiere after the well-received Arrow (still on Wednesdays), and Vampire Diaries spin-off The Originals, which will air on Tuesdays with the shifted Supernatural.

Though the CW’s numbers can’t compete with the Big Four, the network knows its audience well, and employs social media better than most to promote its series.  Still, it could use a watershed must-see hit to really put it on firm ground.  For details on the new schedule, hit the jump.

Fresh off NBC’s drama renewals earlier today, the CW has announced a few pickups for its network.  The CW has officially greenlit the spinoff of The Vampire Diaries, titled The Originals, to series.  Last night’s episode of TVD acted as a backdoor pilot for The Originals, and the new show will premiere this fall seemingly under the tutelage of The Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec.

Additionally, the network has renewed the drama series Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast for a third and second season, respectively.  While not a ratings juggernaut, the CW has carved out a niche market with its original programming geared towards a younger audience.  The network has already renewed The Vampire Diaries, Arrow, and Supernatural for the fall.  Read the full press release after the jump.

Fans of The CW network have reason to celebrate.  The CW announced today that they’ve given early pickups to their three most popular series: Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, and Supernatural.  The comic book adaptation Arrow was a bit of a gamble this year, but it appears to have paid off as the freshman series will be returning with new episodes next fall for a second season.  The smash hit The Vampire Diaries is the network’s highest rated series in the coveted 18-34 demo and will be returning next year for a fifth season, while the long-running Supernatural kicks off its ninth season (ninth!) next fall.

The latter series has enjoyed an uptick in ratings since being paired with Arrow on Wednesday nights, and it looks like the two will continue to be programming buddies next year.  The CW has thus far only cancelled one new series, Emily Owens, M.D., but will be kicking off a new show called Cult on February 19th.  Hit the jump for the full press release.

Good news for a couple of popular series.  First up, hot off the network’s biggest ratings in years, The CW has picked up the superhero adaptation Arrow for a full season.  Much like Smallville, the show puts a television spin on the Green Arrow comic book character and has been met with a relatively enthusiastic audience response.  The series had an impressively strong hold from its premiere numbers of 4.02 million viewers and a 1.3 rating in the coveted 18-49 demo to the second episode, so the order was a no-brainer.  The CW’s pick-up is for a full 22-episode season.

Though Smallville has come to an end, The CW is taking another shot at a superhero series this fall with Arrow.  For those unfamiliar, the show is an adaptation of the Green Arrow comics character with Stephen Amell starring as Oliver Queen, an eccentric billionaire who was recently discovered alive on a deserted island after having been presumed dead for five years.  We’ll likely see a number of familiar characters pop up in the series from time to time (China White appears in episode 2), but today we have our first look at Michael Rowe as the DC Comics assassin Deadshot.

The character has a long history in the comics, so it’ll be interesting to see how the CW puts their own spin on his story.  Hit the jump to check out the images, and look for Deadshot to appear in the third episode of the season. .  Arrow premieres on the CW Wednesday, October 10th at 8 ET/PT.

Though a TV iteration of Wonder Woman failed to make it to series just last year, it looks like the character might be returning to the airwaves sooner rather than later.  David E. Kelley filmed a Wonder Woman pilot for NBC early last year, but the network decided to pass on the project after getting a look at the full episode.  Now it appears that the character could be resurrected on a more superhero-friendly network: The CW.

A Green Arrow TV series called Arrow debuts on The CW this fall and the network was home to the Superman origin series Smallville, and now it looks like they’re eyeing a similarly origin-centered approach to the Wonder Woman character.  Hit the jump for more.
