After nine seasons, how does a television show make you audibly gasp at its final reveal? Shouldn’t all the magic be gone? By now we should know every trick and be able to telegraph every plot twist. Coming out of the final commercial break, I’m sure all of us were expecting a “Deus ex Machina” solution to Dean’s death. We’d seen it countless times over the course of nine seasons. Sam and Dean die, come back, and everything works itself out after a few episodes.
ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and The CW have released their 2014-2015 schedules, leaving us to sort through the lineups to see what's airing when. With new shows added, cancelled shows removed and some series shifted around the schedule, keeping it all straight can be tricky, which is why we've put together this handy guide...
Boy, if you thought you were having a bad day, I can guarantee it's nothing compared to what happens to a group of New Mexico citizens on the CW's upcoming sci-fi thriller The Messengers.
Another DC comic adaptation coming to the CW in the 2014-2015 season is iZombie, a series that will bring Veronica Mars' Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright back to the network for a crime-solving drama with a zombie twist.
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"!
The Arrow spinoff The Flash has revealed an exciting new extended trailer today. Clocking in at more than five minutes, the video begins with tragedy before bringing us to the present day Barry Allen.
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.
With the CW's upfront presentation coming up, we were hoping we might get a glimpse of their Arrow spinoff The Flash during tonight's Season 2 finale, and sure enough, CW released the above teaser, which gives us a look at Barry Allen as The Flash on the move. "Showoff," Oliver Queen says, as Flash zooms between the arrow and the target, catching Oliver's arrow and celebrating the move with a cheer.
The CW is going to get promo-crazy next week for the network upfronts, and they’ve already started rolling out teaser images for four of their new series, including The Flash, iZombie, The Messengers and Jane the Virgin.
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.
Two days after the Blu-ray/DVD release of his Kickstarted feature version of Veronica Mars, the CW has announced they’ve put in a series order for Thomas’ next project, the comic book adaptation iZombie.
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.
It’s hard to fill 22 episode about a slew of vampires, werewolves and witches. And since the “ruling” of New Orleans is central to the plot in The Originals, it’s only fitting that the constant plot twists are related to matters of control. There’s little time to wrap everything up now; next week is The Originals’ big Season 1 finale, and the preview for the episode seems to promise an explosive one.
