Following CBS' Fall TV premiere schedule, the CW has released their own plans for new and returning programming this fall. It looks like they'll be getting things going during early October, starting with The Vampire Diaries, Reign and TVD-spinoff The Originals.
After becoming a dominant force in the world of blockbuster movies, comic books are now ready to take over television. Perhaps the most exciting in-development project of the bunch, however, is the Flash series that is currently in the works over at the CW.
The CW is giving us two new looks at the upcoming Arrow spinoff The Flash. While one video has Barry Allen zipping through the fast lane, the other has him stuck in the friend zone. The above video shows Barry exploring his newly acquired super-speed, which involves a bit of testing, guided by Tom Cavanagh's Dr. Harrison Wells.
John Barrowman's Arrow character dropped in a couple of times throughout the CW series' second season, but it looks like we'll be seeing a lot more of Malcolm Merlyn in Season 3, as Barrowman has been promoted to series regular. Arrow SPOILER warning if you're not caught up on Season 2 through this week's finale, "Unthinkable"!
To top off a wonderful season full of fantastic fights, memorable characters and, of course, DCU references, Arrow did the “Unthinkable.” The Season 2 finale not only featured two ‘final’ showdowns between our hero and big bad but also the return of almost everyone who has ever fought over the fate of Starling City.
Of the five major TV networks, the CW is the last to do its upfront presentation. The 2014-2015 was announced this morning, and as we hoped, The Flash is on the line-up, along with new drama Jane the Virgin and returning favorites The Vampire Diaries, Arrow and The 100. Zombie drama iZombie and sci-fi series The Messengers will air in 2015.
Next Wednesday night, the "Unthinkable" will happen... and maybe not just because the Arrow Season 2 finale is titled "Unthinkable." In fact, the title may very well be a major warning that something terrible is going to happen by season's end. Will Slade kill the person Oliver loves most?
In with the new unfortunately means out with the old. Or well, old-ish anyway. CW's Star-Crossed only just got its start this year, and The Tomorrow People debuted last fall, but both dramas have been cancelled by The CW, along with veteran series The Carrie Diaries.
The last three episodes of Arrow have basically served as one giant cliffhanger for the “Unthinkable" second season finale. "Seeing Red" saw a major character meet their demise (while another was born) before “City of Blood” released Deathstroke’s super-soldiers to wreak havoc in Starling City and create this week’s titular “Streets Of Fire." Can our heroes put out the flames? Not yet. Remember, cliffhanger.
Every time I hear the title for this week's episode of Arrow, "Streets of Fire," I end up with the Rocky IV training montage song "Hearts on Fire" in my head. So with that, we'll kick off the photo preview for the penultimate episode of Arrow with an optional soundtrack for those of you who need a bit of motivation music to get you through Tuesday...
As if you couldn't tell by last night's episode of Arrow, which left things off in a pretty chaotic place in Starling City, we're down to the last couple of episodes of Season 2. The teaser for "Streets of Fire" reminds us that there are just two episodes left, in fact, with next week's installment serving as the penultimate episode of the second season. Spoilers if you aren't caught up through last night's "City of Blood."
Even though last week’s Arrow was only the fourth last episode of the season, "Seeing Red" had a few moments fit for a finale. It not only said goodbye to a significant character but also included an allusion to a possibly huge addition. And all this a month before the “Unthinkable." The shocking farewell also paved the way for Starling to become a “City of Blood” and there are plenty of DCU references in this week’s cliffhanger...
This week’s Arrow had a few game changing events. While one recurring character met their untimely end in “Seeing Red,” the episode balanced out the loss by introducing another major presence during the flashbacks. To those unfamiliar with the DC Comics source material, the subplot may have seemed like typical CW-style melodrama but it’s all based on a long-standing “Green Arrow” storyline.
Whoa. Fans should probably have been expecting someone significant to bite the dust before the end of Season 2 but perhaps not this early. Arrow still has three episodes before the "Unthinkable" finale and key characters are already starting to drop. Imagine what the series has in store for the rest of the season? But before Starling becomes a “City of Blood,” this week ”The Man Under the Hood” was distracted trying to stop his sidekick from "Seeing Red"...
Spoilers if you haven't seen last night's Arrow ("Seeing Red")! The trailer for "City of Blood" begins with a funeral, and after last night's episode, we don't have to guess who's in the casket. But there's a lot more going on in this 30-second spot that isn't so clear.
