The CW recently made some tough decisions where the network’s programming is concerned, cutting a number of shows, renewing others and adding some new original content to the lineup.
CW Shakes Up Lineup
Joining hits The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Supernatural and Reign in the fall will be fellow returning series Beauty and the Beast, Hart of Dixie and The 100, reported Entertainment Weekly. Newcomers to the network will be The Flash, Jane the Virgin, iZombie and The Messengers.
Three of the new shows all have supernatural elements about them. The Flash is based off the DC Comics' superhero; iZombie is about a med student that morphs into an undead; and The Messengers follows a group of strangers who die and then reawaken with the task of saving the world from an apocalypse.
Jane the Virgin, meanwhile, is an adaption of a Venezuelan telenovela that follows a young Latina that mistakenly becomes artificially inseminated.
Making room for the new shows, the CW canceled The Carrie Diaries, Star-Crossed and The Tomorrow People, as well as the planned Supernatural spin-off Bloodlines.
