We were just saying yesterday that The CW seems to be where a lot of the most insane genre action is happening — and now here are promo photos of the network's four new SF/fantasy shows.

How did The CW become THE go-to network for fantastical television?

Not long ago, The CW seemed like the home of Gossip Girl and 90210, with one night of fantasy fare like Supernatural or Vampire Diaries. But this week, the network is airing finales of five genre shows. Season finales, not series. And next season, The CW adds four more SF/fantasy shows. And most of these shows are… » 5/15/13 1:00pm 5/15/13 1:00pm

We could be watching The CW's answer to The Hunger Games this fall

On paper, The CW's show The Selection sounds like a slam dunk: a TV version of Hunger Games, set 300 years in the future, where the reward for winning is to marry a handsome prince. But when The CW actually filmed a pilot last year, the results were apparently not satisfactory — perhaps not surprising, given some… » 1/23/13 12:20pm 1/23/13 12:20pm

Do we really need two Vampire Diaries shows?

One of the best parts of The Vampire Diaries right now is the semi-evil Klaus, one of the Original vampires who's also half-werewolf. (Don't ask.) So at first blush, it's exciting news to hear that The CW is thinking about giving Klaus and his Original siblings their own spinoff show, possibly focused on their… » 1/11/13 3:20pm 1/11/13 3:20pm

At first glance, The CW's Wonder Woman show seems to be getting back to…

The CW has put out a casting call for the lucky actor who will play Diana, aka Wonder Woman, in its brand new origins show. And the other day, a description of the character came out: she's "a fierce warrior with the innocent heart of a romantic." But what does that mean, exactly? » 12/04/12 2:10pm 12/04/12 2:10pm

How will Arrow escape the curse of superhero TV shows?

Television is littered with failed superhero TV shows. If you don't count Person of Interest, then only the only successful superhero shows of the past decade are Smallville and (for a while) Heroes. So how will Arrow, the new DC Comics adaptation launching on the CW this fall, avoid the curse of the superhero show?… » 7/20/12 3:51pm 7/20/12 3:51pm

Intense First Clip From The CW's New Superhero Show Arrow!

The CW is finally launching a new superhero show to replace the long-running Smallville — and it focuses on Green Arrow, DC Comics' counterpart to the Avengers' Hawkeye. Check out the first ever clip, which mostly consists of a shirtless Oliver Queen working out, making arrows, and scowling at the camera. We're in. » 5/17/12 10:38am 5/17/12 10:38am

Supernatural Creator Eric Kripke's New Project: A Superhero Ghost?

We've been waiting ages to find out what Supernatural's Eric Kripke was going to do next — assuming he wasn't really going to make an Octocobra movie, as the show suggested last spring. Now it appears Kripke's next project is a superhero show for the CW: an adaptation of DC Comics' Deadman. » 8/26/11 8:30am 8/26/11 8:30am

Supernatural And Smallville Renewed — But Is There Any Place Left For…

Cinemaspy is reporting that the CW has renewed both Supernatural and Smallville for one more season each. In the case of Smallville, presumably this means more baby steps towards Clark becoming Superman — maybe next year, he'll put on red boots but keep the all-black ensemble otherwise? But after Eric Kripke was so… » 1/25/10 9:30am 1/25/10 9:30am
