This week at the Television Critics Association Press tour, the CW has done something quite unprecedented: the network has already decided to renew eight TV shows for the 2015-2016 TV season. Go ahead and breathe in a sigh of relief.
The Originals began airing its second season almost a month ago, and already we’ve had plenty of new characters and storylines to delve into. However, one character we haven’t seen much of is coming back in an episode that will air fairly soon.
San Diego Comic-Con officially kicks off a week from today, so the timing is perfect for Warner Bros. to unveil the designs for the collectible bags, which will be handed out to all registered attendees when they arrive to pick up their SDCC badges.
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.
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.
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.
There are only two episodes left in The Originals’ first season. No doubt the writers have something crazy planned to pump fans up for next year. So, expect this coming episode to set the stage for some drama.
Here's something you might not have realized was happening last night. William Shatner live-Tweeted his way through an episode of CW's The Originals. Why? Presumably for our amusement, in which case it was a pretty successful endeavor on his part.
The Originals finally returned to the CW’s schedule on Tuesday night, putting together an episode that was pretty high in political conversation, as to be expected. It can take a while for viewers to get their sea legs after a show has been absent for several weeks, and The Originals is not the easiest show to jump back into
The CW is big on taking fairly large hiatuses (I can’t even remember the last time I saw a new episode of Hart of Dixie). With that in mind, it’s not surprising that The Originals’ brand new preview “The Big Uneasy” mentions that the supernatural drama will be disappearing from the schedule until April 15.
Thus far on The Originals, the show has been extremely fond of curveballs. A sophisticated web of treachery is constantly being woven by one character or another, but in the preview for next week’s episode, “Moon over Bourbon Street,” it looks like it’s time to sit back and party, though I wouldn’t exactly recommend anyone relax.
If you caught the above preview, you probably noticed that The CW gave us a little more information than usual related to next week’s episode, which ended on a cliffhanger in a graveyard. The above preview looks at what seems to be the very beginning of next week’s episode.
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 has passed along some good news for some of their current series, including freshman dramas The Originals and Reign. Both were among the series given early renewals ahead of this Spring's up fronts. Arrow, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries also made the cut.
Welcome to the world of The Originals, a series set in New Orleans that offers enough storylines going on at once to make any viewer’s head spin. It’s a good sort of spin, though, and this week fans were treated to a ton of curveballs as the war for The Big Easy heated up. Now, we have a look at the next big episode, and we know for a fact that “It’s a Long Way Back From Hell.”
