'Arrow' producer reveals details of season 3's Big Bad and 'Flash' crossover episode

What’s that? You say you need to know what’s going to happen on this season of Arrow after last season’s absolutely bonkers finale that saw the greatest freighter-based showdown this side of Lost?

EW caught up with Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg—who now has his hands full with The CW’s other new flashy (get it?) superhero show The Flash (now you get it). But since Kreisberg is pulling double duty with the DC Comics heroes, that means he’s got double the scoop to offer.

Perhaps most pressing is the question of which villainous threat Oliver Queen will face this coming season, which picks up six or seven months after the season-two finale. Crime is down and the police aren’t hunting Ollie—but peace never lasts that long in Starling City. Despite last season’s startlingly sinister Slade, this year’s villain will have to up the ante even more. READ FULL STORY

Here's why The CW canceled those 4 shows this year

The CW is answering for its crimes cancellations: three fan-favorite shows and one spin-off that are still fueling the voices of sad fans.

Though CW president Mark Pedowitz has previously addressed the scrapping of both The Tomorrow People and the Supernatural spin-off Bloodlines, the network chief fielded cancellation questions aplenty during the CW’s executive panel on the Television Critics Association semi-annual press tour.

Here’s what Pedowitz had to say about four axed shows: READ FULL STORY

Brandon Routh joins 'Arrow' as The Atom

Brandon Routh is trading in his blue and red tights for another pair of blue and red tights. EW has confirmed that the Superman Returns actor has booked a recurring role in Arrow‘s third season as Ray Palmer, a.k.a. The Atom.

According to TVLine, Ray Palmer, an “unparalleled scientist and inventor,” is Queen Consolidated’s new owner and has mysterious plans for Queen Consolidated’s Applied Sciences Division. He is rumored to be a love interest for Felicity.

In the comics, Ray Palmer/The Atom has the power to alter the size of his body and can shrink down to subatomic levels. This is not the character’s first live-action appearance: John Kassir portrayed the character in the failed 1997 CBS pilot/TV movie Justice League of America. The Atom has also been featured in both the Young Justice and Justice League Unlimited animated series.

The Atom is the second DC Comics superhero to join Arrow in its third season. As was previously reported, Devon Aoki was cast as the classic DC Comics hero Katana.

Arrow premieres on the CW on Wednesday, October 8 at 8 p.m. ET.

Devon Aoki joins 'Arrow' as Katana

Meet Oliver Queen’s new mentor. Sin City‘s Devon Aoki is joining the third season of Arrow in the recurring role of Tatsu Yamashiro, known to comic-book readers as the sword-wielding Japanese hero Katana.

'Jane the Virgin' extended trailer: She's having a baby -- VIDEO

“Accidentally artificially inseminated” sounds more like the hook of a Saturday Night Live sketch than the premise of an upcoming CW series. For doubters, the network has released an extended trailer for the upcoming dramedy Jane the Virgin, which tries to sell the show a little more strongly than simply saying, “trust us.”

Based on the popular Venezuelan telenovela Juana la Virgen, the U.S. version of Jane stars Gina Rodriguez (Filly Brown) as a hard-working, devout Latina who is kind of hoping her boyfriend proposes — though she’s a little worried he’ll get down on one knee so she’ll finally agree to do the deed. When a mix-up at the OB-GYN leads to that artificial insemination plot line, Jane must choose whether to keep the baby — and whether to let the handsome father into her life.

Check out the extended trailer below: READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural': Mark Sheppard returning as series regular for season 10

Long may he reign!

The King of Hell will be sitting comfortably on his throne when Supernatural returns for its tenth season: Mark Sheppard, the man behind fan-favorite Crowley, has officially been added as a series regular for the year. We don’t know how many episodes he will appear in at this point, but considering Dean’s hellish situation, we’d bet that Crowley’s involvement will be key.

Plus, who else is going to call Sam “Moose”?

Grant Gustin on why The Flash is a 'more willing' superhero than Arrow

From the moment fans watched Barry Allen get struck by a bolt of lightning on Arrow, they’ve been anxiously awaiting the first details on The Flash. But it wasn’t until Thursday that we got our first full look at the new CW series. And yes, it did feature a cameo from Stephen Amell’s Arrow.

But aside from Amell’s appearance in the pilot, what do we know about the series? We caught up with some of the show’s stars at the CW upfronts, where they previewed their characters, revealed a love triangle, and promised at least one shocking twist. Here’s what we found out: READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' finale: Jensen Ackles teases the brother moment that leaves Dean with a tear-stained shoulder

Supernatural‘s Winchester brothers have been through it all. Well, they’ve at least been through a lot. In the show’s previous eight season finales, we’ve watched Dean get sent to hell, Sam get sent to hell, Dean get sent to purgatory, Sam die, and believe it or not, this list keeps going. But this season, the finale is going to focus less on where the brothers are sent and more on what’s happening internally, specifically with dear old Dean.

In the penultimate episode, we got a glimpse at what the Mark of Cain was doing to Dean when he attacked Gadreel with the First Blade and was all but foaming at the mouth for more. So can things get worse for Dean? Jensen Ackles hopes not. “It’s been a tough season for me,” Ackles told us at the CW Upfronts. “I don’t usually have to play Dean this dark for this long. Usually it’s an episode, and then he comes back and is happy-go-lucky and a Dean we all love to hate or love to love, whatever side of the fence you’re on.” Obviously we’re on the love-to-love side of things.

“I’m hoping that season 10 might lighten him up a bit,” Ackles added. “[Season] 9 took a bit of a toll, but at the same time, that’s something I don’t expect. Because the show is every evolving and it constantly changes, the characters have to do the same, so even though it was a rough tough season, I still think it was a good season. We’ll see.”

However, we first have to make it through the season 9 finale, which, when asked to rank the finale on a scale of one to Hell, Ackles said: “It’s not so much the place that he’s in as opposed to the issue that’s surrounding him, and that I think is the shocking part.”

Speaking of shocking, Ackles guaranteed that the finale is one of those don’t-miss-the-final-60-seconds deals. Also, expect one of those Winchester brother-bonding moments that will “probably” make you cry, “considering [Jared's] tears were all over my shoulder,” Ackles said.

If anybody needs me, I’ll be buying a box of tissues.

The Supernatural finale airs Tuesday, May 20 at 9 p.m. on The CW.

The CW's new fall shows (all two of them!): A snap judgment (and a punt)

The CW apparently likes what The CW does, because TV’s YA fantasy aisle isn’t making radical changes to its fall lineup. Just two new shows and a scheduling shift, with The Originals moving to Mondays. But count me among those bummed that The Tomorrow People became a thing of the past too soon: I admired the perspective and the storytelling of the network’s take on super-powered outsiders, especially in its early going. That said, I like the looks of the superhero saga that aspires to fill the void… READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' cast discusses finale, reveals which character the writers originally wanted to be Merlyn's child

After last night’s heart-stopping, shocking, action-packed Arrow finale, we caught up with some of the show’s stars on the red carpet at the CW Upfront to talk about what just happened, what comes next, and all things Canary.

Stephen Amell on Olicity: “Think back to what Oliver said in the sixth episode, which is, ‘Because of what we do, I can’t be with someone I could really care about,’ and I think that that remains true. So I don’t necessarily think that it was a total bait-and-switch.”

Amell on how Oliver will react to losing Thea: “Based on the fact that Oliver has lost both his mother and his father, Thea’s going to be incredibly important to him, so if she’s not what he expects, that’s going to be really difficult for him to deal with.” READ FULL STORY
