The wait is almost over!

The CW will announce its Fall 2014-2015 schedule on Thursday, May 15. But if you don’t want to wait that long, here’s a look at whats being heatedly discussed. Courtesy of TVGuide.com

DRAMA

The Flash
Based on characters published by DC Comics. Scientist Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) is given the power of super-speed after a freak accident that transforms him into the Fastest Man Alive. The Arrow spin-off comes from Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and DC Chief Geoff Johns. Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Candace Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Rick Cosnett, Carlos Valdes, Michelle Harrison, Patrick Sabongui and John Wesley Shipp will also star.

Our Thoughts– It’ll be a hit because of all the superhero fans out there. Me personally, I won’t be interested. But our superhero obsessed writer Joachim probably will be!

Identity
When a young woman (Ahna O’Reilly) in need of a transplant learns she is related to a powerful family whose son Davis (Matt Barr) is her only hope for a donor organ, the CIA approaches her to investigate the family’s involvement in domestic terrorism and to infiltrate their rarified world. Her loyalty, morality and ethics are tested as she’s forced to slowly build a case against the family who saved her life. Sleepy Hollow creators Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will executive-produce with writer Corinne Brinkerhoff (The Good Wife). Patricia Wettig, Mehcad Brooks, Stephen Hagan and Manish Dayal will also star.

Our Thoughts- This could be a good drama mystery. How do you turn on the family who once helped you? How is it to suddenly realize your whole life was a lie?

iZombie
A med student-turned-zombie (Rose McIver) takes a job in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity, but what happens when she starts inheriting the corpse’s memories? With the help of her medical-examiner boss (Rahul Kohli) and a police detective (Malcolm Goodwin), she solves homicide cases to quiet the disturbing voices in her head. Veronica MarsRob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero will write and executive-produce the project, based on the DC Comics series. Robert BuckleyDavid Anders, Nora Dunn and Alexandra Krosney will also star.

Our Thoughts- Woooo, there goes my lunch. Super gross. Super Walking Dead.

Jane the Virgin
After a series of surprising events, a hard-working, religious young Latina woman (Gina Rodriguez) is accidentally artificially inseminated. 90210‘s Jennie Snyder Urman will write and executive-produce the adaptation of a Venezuelan telenovela. Jaime Camil, Justin Baldoni, Ryan Devlin, Yael Grobglas, Brett Dier, Andrea Navedo and Ivonne Coll will also star.

Our Thoughts: This has potential because it’s different. And if done right it can be a great drama-comedy about life, love, and the unexpected.

The Messengers
When a mysterious object crashes to Earth, a group of seemingly unconnected strangers die from the energy pulse, but then awaken to learn that they have assigned the task of preventing the impending Apocalypse. The Expendables producer Basil Iwanyk will executive-produce with Teen Wolf writer Eoghan O’Donnell. Diogo Morgado, Shantel VanSantenSofia Black-D’Elia, Jon Fletcher, Craig FrankLane Garrison and Joel Courtney will star.

Our thoughts: Way too much supernatural, apocalyptic stuff going on the CW. This reminds me of The 100 mixed with Sleepy Hollow.

Supernatural: Bloodlines
This Supernatural spin-off explores the clashing hunter and monster cultures of Chicago. Supernatural‘s Andrew Dabb will write and executive-produce with Eric Kripke, Jeremy Carver and McG. Stephen Martines, Danielle Savre, Sean Faris, Nathaniel Buzolic, Bryce Johnson, Melissa Roxburgh and Lucien Laviscount will star.

Our Thoughts: Self explanatory…. more supernatural. More monsters. Is this the sci-fi network?

 

What we’re most excited about: I’d have to say, Jane the Virgin. I mean, doesn’t that just sound like a keeper?

'Cruel Summer' Renewed for a Second Season at Freeform Ahead of Finale

Cruel Summer may be airing its season finale tonight, but fans can already look forward to more spine-tingling thrills. 

Freeform has picked up the psychological drama for a second season, according to TVLine

“Renewing Cruel Summer for a Season 2 was an easy decision,” Freeform President Tara Duncan said.

“It’s the biggest series debut in Freeform’s history and the audience response has been overwhelmingly positive. [Executive producers] Jessica [Biel], Michelle [Purple] and [showrunner] Tia [Napolitano] did a phenomenal job telling an addictive story that’s tapped into the cultural zeitgeist. I’m excited to see where they take the series next,” she added.

Napolitano also noted: “Collaborating with Iron Ocean, our dedicated crew, charismatic cast, and our partners at Freeform and eOne has been the best first showrunning experience I could ask for. I am beyond grateful and excited by the amazing fan response to our show! Continuing to bottle Cruel Summer magic for a Season 2 is an absolute dream come true.”

The freshman drama stars Olivia Holt (Kate Wallis) and Chiara Aurelia (Jeanette Turner) whose worlds collide when Kate goes missing and later accuses Jeanette of knowing who kept her captive and not telling the police. Jeanette is adamant that she never saw Kate in captivity. The story is told over three timeliness in 1993, 1994, and 1995. 

The mystery is set to be resolved in tonight’s finale.

Per Deadline, Biel revealed that the mystery could return with a new story and the same characters or feature a new cast of characters. 

You can recap all of the Cruel Summer reviews below!

2021-2022 TV Schedule: Find Out Which Shows Have Been Canceled or Renewed

We’re entering the season of refreshing the page to see if your favorite shows have been renewed for the upcoming 2021-2022 TV season.

Since COVID-19 affected production on many shows and delayed their premieres, the criteria for what gets the green light and what ends up on the chopping block has become more stringent this go-around.

As usual, The CW gave an early renewal for most of their shows including Nancy Drew, Riverdale, Walker, Batwoman, and more. 

In a shocking twist, Grey’s Anatomy has been renewed for season 18 along with sibling series Station 19. 

Unfortunately, not every show shared the same fate as Prodigal Son on FOX was given the ax after two seasons.
