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 latest program the network has picked up is Star-Crossed, a brand new CW show that takes its name from Shakespeare’s famous play, Romeo & Juliet. The network has planned a “midseason catch-up marathon” for anyone interested in the drama.
The CW's gearing up for the big finish for their current season, and in addition to announcing the season finale dates for shows like The Vampire Diaries, Arrow, Supernatural and Star-Crossed, they've also set a premiere date for their airing of the miniseries Labyrinth, which is set to air over two nights, starting May 22.
The CW appears to be staying the course in its focus on genre programming, and Star-Crossed follows along with that trend while simultaneously giving teens and young adults a new high school-set drama, which offers a titular nod to both the alien twist and Romeo and Juliet.
When it comes to new dramas, the CW held a couple back at the start of the 2013-2014 season.

Brian K. Vaughan will also be there for Under the Dome, which should please fans of the series as much as it does fans of his comic book writing.
The CW has announced their fall premiere schedule, and - as we've seen in the past - they're starting their fall season in October, a couple of weeks after the bulk of the other network television series return and debut. Among the new series to get started at the CW are The Tomorrow People, Reign and Vampire Diaries spin-off The Originals.
The good news is, Friday Night Lights' Aimee Teegarden found her next series. The bad news is, we have to wait until midseason to see it. The above clip gives us a glimpse of Teegarden, though the focus is on the arrival of a group of aliens who are now being integrated into a public school for the first time since their arrival on the planet a decade ago. Teegarden plays the female lead, while Matt Lanter plays Roman, the Atrian teen who sets his eye on the beautiful human.
