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.
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.
When it comes to new dramas, the CW held a couple back at the start of the 2013-2014 season. Sci-fi dramas The 100 and Star-Crossed were both reserved for midseason, and you’ll see them among the shows scheduled to air this winter. While alien-Romeo & Juliet drama Star-Crossed will arrive in February, The 100-
Can I watch The Originals if I don't watch The Vampire Diaries? This is the question I asked myself as I sat down to watch the pilot episode of The Originals. So if you're looking for a review of the vampire spinoff series from a die-hard TVD fan, I apologize but you'll have to search elsewhere. My knowledge of The Vampire Diaries is limited to vague memories of the first few episodes of the series.
September is upon us, and with it comes the return of our favorite TV shows, as well as the premieres of many of the new series on deck to debut on network and cable TV. From the early starters, including Boardwalk Empire, Sons of Anarchy and The Legend of Korra, to the October arrivals, including Grimm, American Horror Story: Coven and The Walking Dead and everything in between, we have plenty to look forward to this fall!
A lot happened during the Season 4 finale of The Vampire Diaries. The whole thing should be leading up to a pretty explosive introductory episode in Season 5, and the CW has finally put together a promo hinting at some new plotlines.
The CW has made a few shifts in its Fall 2013 premiere schedule, one of which affects The Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals. It looks like the network has opted to shift the spinoff's premiere date to temporarily pair it with The Vampire Diaries, which will likely give The Originals the benefit of a TVD lead-in and some added support before it moves over to Tuesday nights for its regularly scheduled night.
Capes are back! Or they will be at Comic-Con this year. Someone tell Edna ("No capes!"). Warner Bros. unveiled the official 2013 Comic-Con bags and they come with detachable capes. That, added to the announcement that the bags are fashioned like a backpack this year causes me some mild concern that many of us may feel compelled to run while wearing it, as such a compulsion can arise when wearing a cape.
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.
Among the more anticipated series headed to TV in the upcoming season is likely The Originals, the Vampire Diaries spinoff, which focuses on the Original Vampire family, including Klaus Mikaelson, the original vampire-werewolf hybrid. The trailer teases the struggle for power, loyalty and family among the supernatural underground in the city of New Orleans.
Last among the major networks to unveil their 2013-2014 schedule is The CW. The network has moved a few things around in the new season, in an effort to make room for new series, which include The Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals, action-adventure drama The Tomorrow People and the new historical drama about Mary, Queen of Scots, Reign.
Well, that didn't take long! A day after The CW aired the back-door pilot for the Vampire Diaries potential spinoff series The Originals comes the official word from the network that they've ordered the pilot to series, which means more vampire drama on the CW, as the network had previously renewed the original series for fifth season.
