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.
We learned last month that CW would be airing the Labyrinth miniseries, which is based on Kate Mosse's novel (and has nothing to do with the 80s movie starring Jennifer Connolly and David Bowie).
Filmed on-location in the medieval town of Carcassonne in southwest France and Cape Town, South Africa, the historical miniseries jumps back and forth between modern and medieval France as it follows the lives of two women who are separated by centuries, but united in their search for the Holy Grail. LABYRINTH features a multi-national and award-winning cast, including John Hurt, Sebastian Stan, Jessica Brown-Findlay, Vanessa Kirby and Tom Felton.
Labyrinth aired previously in Canada and overseas, and it will air air in two parts on CW, with the 2-hour first part debuting Thursday, May 22 at 8:00 p.m. and the second part set for Friday, May 23, also at 8:00 p.m. By this point, most of CW's regularly scheduled programming will have wrapped up for the season. Here's the network's Season Finale schedule:
Monday, May 5: THE TOMORROW PEOPLE (9:00-10:00pm)
Freshman drama The Tomorrow People will lead the charge in terms of finales, followed by Star-Crossed, which is apparently set at a pretty short run, considering that series only just premiered this month. The Originals, Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, Reign and Hart of Dixie all wrap up that same week, and Supernatural follow suit the week after. That just leaves The 100, which won't wrap up until June, which isn't a surprise, as the series doesn't premiere until next month...
Finales are still a couple months off, and CW was kind enough to put anxious fans out of their worry for some series by giving early renewals to Arrow, The Originals, Reign, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries. There's no word yet on whether or not Hart of Dixie, The Carrie Diaries or Beauty and the Beast will return for the 2014-2015 season, and CW may be holding of those decisions until they have a look at the pilots in development for potential new series.
