CW explains renewing 'Beauty' while axing 'Tomorrow People'

Couple things. First: The CW isn’t finished trying to spin off Supernatural.

After this year’s unsuccessful attempt to develop an extension of the long-running hit, The CW is going back to the drawing board. The CW president Mark Pedowitz told reporters Thursday he’s looking to try again. The show’s producers and studio, Warner Bros., will seek a new concept to develop for next year’s pilot season. “We believe there is a really good brand in Supernatural,” he said. “We felt the Supernatural [spin-off pilot Bloodlines] didn’t quite get there … We know we want to develop once more for next season a Supernatural spinoff.”

Bloodlines debuted as part of the regular Supernatural season. While fans tuned in to watch, many felt the show was creatively lacking, with EW’s poll showing only a third of Supernatural fans wanting to see the spin-off continue. READ FULL STORY

The CW reveals fall schedule: 'Flash' teams with 'Supernatural'

The-Flash-teaser.jpg

The CW’s new fall schedule is here. You’ll notice it looks a lot like the current one. Most shows are staying where they are, with some exceptions to accommodate new titles and a couple returning favorites getting pushed to midseason.

The first big addition is The Flash, starring Grant Gustin as the fastest man alive, which will air Tuesdays at 8 p.m. The Arrow spin-off will lead into the 10th season of Supernatural. The Flash is taking the spot of The Originals, which is shifting to Monday nights (an evening where its repeats have already gotten some exposure). On Mondays, Originals will lead into new comedy series Jane the Virgin, starring Gina Rodriguez as woman “saving herself” for marriage who is accidentally artificially inseminated.

And that’s nearly it. Arrow and The 100 stay on Wednesdays; The Vampire Diaries and Reign hold on Thursdays; Whose Line Is It Anyway? and America’s Next Top Model continue on Fridays. The CW’s fall will launch in October, with exact dates to be announced at a later time. Which means returning shows Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast won’t be back until 2015. It also means two of The CW’s new drams — iZombie and The Messengers — also won’t debut until midseason. Full new show descriptions below. Trailers to come later today.

UPDATE: The CW says it wants another ‘Supernatural’ spin-off, defends axing ‘Tomorrow People’

'The Originals' finale postmortem: Julie Plec talks revenge, baby names, and a full Mikaelson family reunion

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season finale of The Originals, stop reading now!

Last night, The Originals first season came to an end in a way no one could’ve expected: Hayley was a hybrid, just about all the town’s vamps were dead, Mikael was back, Rebekah was on the run with the baby, and what appeared to be Esther and Finn showed up in other people’s bodies. But don’t worry, if you haven’t finished digesting what all of that could mean for season 2, we chatted with Executive Producer Julie Plec about what exactly those twists will affect, how they decided to name the baby Hope, and everything about Elijah’s breakdown.

Stephen Amell previews the 'Arrow' finale: Oliver does 'the unthinkable;' plus, the ending nobody could predict

When we last left Starling City, it was being terrorized by Slade’s Mirakuru soldiers. Oliver and his team had injected Roy with the cure, Thea had fired a gun, and Amanda Waller had scheduled a drone strike to level the entire city. And that was just in Arrow‘s penultimate episode.

“We stretched [the finale] out this year. It was a long three episodes because essentially, our last three episodes — save for the last act of the season — take place over the course of one night,” Stephen Amell tells EW. “So the wardrobe department had it relatively easy because no one changed. But yeah we did absolutely save the best for last. This is our best episode of the season for sure.”

What exactly does Arrow‘s season 2 finale have in store for viewers? Check out our chat with Amell below:

'The Originals' finale: Daniel Gillies on the show's 'Darth Vader', and 'the beginning of the end for Elijah'

From the moment The Originals was pitched as a Vampire Diaries spin-off, it was talked about as the story of Klaus Mikaelson’s redemption, among other things, and what that would mean for this literally ancient family of vampires. And now, one season later, we’re only hours away from Klaus’ baby being born and what could be the start of a whole new Klaus. Then again, we could be hours away from Klaus going down his darkest road yet.

But one thing seems certain: Thanks to a romantic entanglement with Hayley, Klaus’ older brother Elijah will be just as affected by any outcome. And Daniel Gillies, the man behind Elijah, has spoken before about how this series is as much about Klaus’ redemption as it is about the undoing of Elijah. “What’s exciting about a character like Elijah is I think that I feel like he has an enormous threshold for this punishment,” Gillies said. “It’s partly to do with how I believe his psychological architecture is constructed. I think that he’s someone who carries an enormous amount of guilt and regret about his brother’s condition. He feels that he’s failed his brother, so subsequently, he’s this creature who follows his malevolent brother to all the corners of the earth in pursuit of this ideal that’s really as mercurial as sand between your fingers.” READ FULL STORY

'Reign': Toby Regbo on the love triangle, Lola's baby, and how King Henry reminds him of George Bush

Being a prince has its benefits, what with all the money, the whole living-in-a-castle thing, and the fact that everyone pretty much does whatever they’re told. But it also comes with a lot of responsibility, particularly when there’s a war brewing and your father, the king, has quite literally lost his mind. Welcome to Francis’ world.

In tonight’s Reign, Francis is returning from battle a victor, but what he’s greeted with isn’t exactly a welcome home party. “When he returns, King Henry’s still mental,” Toby Regbo said. “There’s a couple of public things that he does. Beforehand, what King Henry had done had been hidden behind closed doors, it had been shielded from the public eye, and now he does a couple of things that are so crazy that it starts to make Francis wonder what the best course of action is.” READ FULL STORY

'Arrow': Katie Cassidy on fighting back, Laurel and Oliver as 'soul mates;' plus, a game of 'Arrow or Canary'

Starling City is under attack in tonight’s episode of Arrow – and running is no longer an option.

With Slade’s Mirakuru army invading the entire city, everyone is forced to suit up — even Laurel, who can be seen holding a bow and arrow in tonight’s episode. “She does have it in her hands, but whether she knows how to use it or not, we’ll find out,” Katie Cassidy says with a laugh.

All jokes aside, it’s time for Team Arrow (and all the help they can get) to fight back. READ FULL STORY

'Tomorrow People' EP pitches major time jump for season 2; plus, an exclusive clip from tonight's finale

The Tomorrow People‘s first season has been a year full of our favorite T’s: telepathy, telekinesis, teleportation, and twists. From people we never thought would have powers — Marla! — to those who lost them — John! — it’s safe to say that the end of the season looks nothing like the world we were introduced to months ago. And now, after last week’s big shocker, The Tomorrow People finale is shaping up to be an event all its own. What will Jedekiah do now that he has powers? Will Roger survive The Machine? And which characters will die?

We caught up with Executive Producer Phil Klemmer to talk about the finale and hear his pitch for season 2. (Yes, he has pitched it to the network!) Check it out below:

'The Originals': Joseph Morgan on Klaus' greatest threat; plus, a fatherhood edition of 'What Would Klaus Do?'

With every episode of The Originals, Klaus’ list of enemies seems to grow longer. And at this point, he’s got a number of people to worry about (as much as an all-powerful hybrid needs to worry.) There are the witches, who want to kill his unborn child, his father, who’s trying to come back from the dead to kill him, Marcel, who’s readying for battle, and whatever’s going on with that key the humans have … to name a few. But heading into the penultimate episode, Joseph Morgan is most worried about two specific members of the Originals universe.

On the one hand, there’s Mikael, who Morgan identified as “the most terrifying threat,” for Klaus. But in terms of Klaus’ potential for redemption, Morgan is more focused on Klaus’ unborn child. “The emotional investment that Klaus has finally made in his child and the potential for the child to save him, to redeem Klaus is huge, so the witches, Genevieve, particularly, being a threat to his child is pretty worrying as well,” Morgan said.

So basically, Klaus needs to keep his eye on the unborn and the potentially undead. “For Klaus’ person, for his physical form, if Mikael gets his way and is able to get a body and come back somehow, I think Mikael is the biggest threat, but for Klaus’ redemption, for his sanity, for everything that’s good in him, I think that Genevieve at the moment along with Monique is the biggest threat because they take his child and he’ll be going down a pretty dark path, I would imagine.”

And speaking of Klaus’ children, he and Marcel had a great moment last week, in which both affirmed their father-son relationship, and yet, also prepared for a bloody battle. So does Morgan think Klaus will let his feelings get in the way on the battlefield? “[That] is going to be answered on Tuesday,” he said with a chuckle. “He has before let his feelings get in the way at the last minute, [but] he’s also charged at his sister with the white oak stake and only because he was stopped by Elijah did it not happen. I think he tried to stab her a couple of times and was ready to kill her, was ready to end her and then was stopped. I think he’s capable of doing very rash things, which he will deeply regret later, but the potential is there. We’ve seen how much of a monster he can be. He does care for Marcel deeply, Marcel is his adopted son, he raised him and he sired him. There’s a huge love there between those characters, but in the moment, could Klaus do something terrible? Absolutely.”

While we’re talking family, what ever happened to that one member of Klaus’ wolf bloodline that we met? Well, Morgan doesn’t know, but Klaus’ wolf family is a story he’s dying to delve into next season. “That’s a huge untapped resource we have, and I would hope moving into season 2, that we’ll see more of his background, his wolf side. We saw one of his bloodline, and we found this ring that his mother made for his true biological father, so I think the idea of exploring that, certainly for me, is very interesting, because the Klaus we met was very much a vampire. We’ve seen more of the beast in him certainly over the last season, but definitely, we could explore more of that. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we discovered a pack that was descended from his bloodline, so there’s another family of which Klaus is a member, and then you have these two families, and he’s a member of both? I should be pitching this to Julie [Plec]. Season 2, I think we just figured it out!”

So now that we figured that out, we asked Morgan to play a game called What Would Klaus Do: The Fatherhood Edition. It’s pretty much exactly what you think it is. Read his answers below: READ FULL STORY

'The Vampire Diaries': Michael Malarkey on Enzo sticking around, the return of a few familiar faces, more death

The Vampire Diaries and death are sort of like two peas in a pod. But last week, viewers witnessed a death unlike any they’d seen before when Damon’s longtime pal, Enzo, decided to essentially frame Stefan for his suicide, if only to ruin the Salvatore brothers’ relationship. But with the other side crumbling, Enzo isn’t exactly gone from Mystic Falls.

For now, Enzo will be sticking around as a very pissed off ghostly presence, ready to enact his revenge on Stefan, Damon, and pretty much everyone. “I kind of view Enzo as a little bit of an anarchist,” Michael Malarkey said. “He doesn’t give a s— about all the stuff that a lot of the other characters care about, so he’s really quick to dismiss things or say, ‘That’s a bunch of crap’ or ‘All this girlfriend bulls— is pointless, let’s focus on real stuff here.’ So, I think there’s an element of him which is mad at the world and doesn’t care, but there’s also [a] very specific reason for him to be upset with, in particular Damon and Stefan.” READ FULL STORY

'Reign' exclusive: See Leith's bloody return!

Greer’s one true love is coming back to Reign, but not in the way you might expect. Last we saw the kitchen boy, he was being sent off to the army after he was caught kissing Greer, who at the time was engaged to Lord Julien. And now, with the constant threat of takeovers in just about every country imaginable, Francis is ready to take action.
