The CW Network has given early pickups to three of its hit series for next season, including freshman hit ARROW, its top-rated drama THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and fan favorite SUPERNATURAL, it was announced today by Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW. All three shows will return in Fall 2013.
After the failure of the first Wonder Woman television pilot, one might think the network would go back into hiding. That’s not the case for The CW who is reported to be pushing forward with a new show called Amazon, about a warrior named Iris.
ARROW keeps on hitting the bull’s-eye for The CW. Last night was ARROW’s most watched (3.75M) episode since the series premiere on October 10, and matched its season best among adults 18-49 (1.3/4) and adults 18-34 (1.1/3) according to national Live Plus Same Day Nielsen ratings for Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012. ARROW also matched its second best performance in women 18-34 (1.1/3).
A slew of new characters, both villainous and heroic are showing up in Starling City over the next few months. An exclusive clip can be seen over at EW.com as well as character news in few different places.
Depending on where you are living, and in what time zone, The CW’s premiere of Arrow just wrapped, and it is time for you to flood the comment section with your thoughts.
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.

The station that brought you Smallville is back for more superheroy goodness with a Green Arrow series conveniently named Arrow. CW has released a few clips here and there of the upcoming series, but today we have a new, full trailer for your viewing pleasure.
I’m intrigued enough about Arrow that I will definitely be setting the DVR on October 10 to catch the first episode.
Joss Whedon’s acclaimed “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog,” starring Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day,” will make its television debut on Tuesday, October 9 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) on The CW.
The CW is teasing Arrow pretty hard at the San Diego Comic-Con, and we’re seeing more clips and pics arrive for the show. From what I hear, early reactions to the show are positive, but I’m going to reserve judgement until I have a chance to see it for myself on October 10, 2012.
