The CW 2013 Fall TV Premiere Dates Set

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. They join returning series Teh Carrie Diaries, Hart of Dixie, Arrow, Beauty and the Beast and Supernatural, not to mention Top Model.

This spring, we learned that the CW had five new series on deck, three of which would debut this fall. The Mary Queen of Scots drama, Reign, will air on Thursday nights after The Vampire Diaries, starting October 10. Sci-fi/supernatural remake The Tomorrow People, which will air after Arrow on Wednesday nights starting October 9. And The Originals, which is set up for a Tuesday premiere on October 15. Here's the full schedule:

Saved for midseason are Star-Crossed, a teen drama starring Aimee Teegarden about aliens living on earth with humans and attending high school. And The 100, the lone Hunger-Games-like drama to make it to series at The CW this season. It centers on a group of teens dropped on an abandoned earth to see if the planet is habitable after decades of humanity living in space arcs.

Here's a look at Star-Crossed:

And here's the preview for The 100

All in all, going high-concept seems to have benefited The CW in recent years, with The Vampire Diaries and Arrow securing loyal viewers, and it appears the CW has continued in that direction with their new shows.
