The CW doesn't offer a flood of new original series each season. In fact, the network only ordered a handful of new scripted series to join their returning shows for the 2014-2015 season, and only two of them debuted this fall.
The CW has decided to jump the gun with a couple of its most highly anticipated dramas. This week, the network announced it has ordered additional scripts for the upcoming shows The Flash and Jane the Virgin. While a lot of first season shows are picked up for a short episode count, eventually receiving the back nine order, these script pick-ups seem to show The CW feels confident about the programs before they have even aired.
Fall is so close, you can practically smell the pumpkin spice latte! Kids are going back to school and network TV is amping up for the return of fan favorite series and the arrival of new comedies and dramas. For CW, that includes the highly anticipated Arrow spinoff The Flash and the dramatic looking new dramedy Jane the Virgin...
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.
CW has finally released the extended trailer for their upcoming fall series Jane the Virgin. As expected, it's dramatic and a little bit ridiculous, but in a charming and funny way. Jane's been raised to protect her virginity, lest it wither like a flower... or be crushed like one, anyway. And then she finds herself artificially inseminated with the sperm of a wealthy hotel owner. Things get even more complicated from there.
Who's ready for a dramatic story about a 23-year-old virgin who accidentally gets artificially inseminated with the sperm of a dreamy billionaire? Because that's what CW has coming this fall. Jane the Virgin is said to be a loose adaptation of a Venezuelan telenovela. Gina Rodriguez stars as the titular virgin, whose life is turned upside down by an erroneous insemination. These things happen.
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.
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.
Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg's Arrow spinoff The Flash seemed like a sure thing for the CW, but nothing's certain until that series order comes in, and today, it came in! The Flash is a go. Barry Allen will be back on the CW for the 2014-2015 season, this time around as a lead character in his own series -- as opposed to a guest character in CW's Arrow, which is how the character was first introduced to us.
