The good news is, there is an end in sight. Netflix marathons will soon be just something to get you through the weekend. Just in time for the usual, mid-summer hiatus depression to set in, The CW has released their fall line-up. The 2014-2015 season is packed with old favorites and a few exciting newcomers.
The Originals – Season 2 of this ‘Vampire Diaries’ spin-off kicks off on October 6th at 8/7c, and we are all eagerly awaiting what is guaranteed to be a thrilling premiere. The end of last season gave us the dramatic birth of Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Haley’s (Phoebe Tonkin) beautiful baby girl and the anticipated return of Klaus’s greatest enemy, his ‘father’ Micheal (Sebastian Roche), so we can only dream about what gifts the writers will bestow upon us this fall. I, for one, am counting the days.
Jane the Virgin – The series premiere of this new take on ‘immaculate conception’ airs on October 13th at 9/8c. This fresh new series follows a ‘medical mix-up’ that leaves Jane (Gina Rodriguez), a 23 year old virgin that was raised to protect her virtue at all costs. Now Jane is struggling with how to explain a virgin pregnancy to her fiance and how this development fits into her life plan.
The Flash – The network’s most anticipated new show. For those of us that watch ‘Arrow’ we have already gotten a taste and we cannot wait until the series premiere of the this new show. Starting October 7th at 8/7c, The Flash a.k.a Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) finally has a way to look into the strange occurrences that he has been obsessed with since he was 11 years old. But as he delves into this world he must also decide who can, and who cannot be trusted with his secret.
Supernatural – With many diehard fans still reeling from the season nine finale, Supernaturals tenth season is sure to start off with a bang, or, a howl. Beginning October 7th at 9/8c, Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) has become everything he hates and his brother Sam (Jared Padalecki) and right hand Angel, Castiel (Misha Collins) must deal with this new side of him. Meanwhile Dean’s sassy demon bestie, Crowley (Mark Sheppard) is sure to be hard pressed to hide his excitement over having Dean on his side.
Arrow – So many good things await the fans of the show this fall. The very least of which is John Barrowman being upgraded to series regular. Arrow returns for it’s third season October 8th at 8/7c. In the meantime we all can just pass the time with Stephen Amell’s regular Q & A’s on Facebook.
The 100 – This mid-season replacement became a sleeper hit, with a super sexy young cast that spend their days trying to live on an untamed planet (earth). The second season is rounding out the season premiere season by airing on October 22nd at 9/8c. There are many surprises guaranteed for the new season, including how many episodes will air. Talk about playing it close to the vest.
The Vampire Diaries – The end of season five has left a lot of fans still sitting with their jaws on the floor. With two beloved main characters pretty much dead, and in a seemingly permanent way, the fate of this vampire drama is up in the air. Kat Graham, a.k.a Bonnie Bennett has confirmed that she has been signed on for this new season, but even she isn’t entirely sure what role her character will have. No word yet on whether Ian Somerhalder a.k.a Damon Salvatore will be making a miraculous recovery, but he was kind enough to share on his twitter account that the sixth season will be airing October 2nd at 8/7c. Pretty sweet birthday present for yours truly, if I do say so myself.
Reign – Now I will be the first to admit that this is one CW hit that I have let pass me by. But this period drama about a young Mary, Queen of Scots seems to be here to stay. So during the hiatus I think it’s the perfect time for a marathon, must be ready for the season two premiere following The Vampire Diaries at 9/8c on October second.
Much like Reign and The 100 from the 2013-2014 season, the network has a few gems (hopefully) lined up for this fall season as well.
iZombie – From the brilliant works of ‘Veronica Mars’ creator Rob Thomas comes a new show about Liv and young college student turned zombie played by Rose Mclver. Liv uses her new hunger for brains to help solve crimes and put her affliction to use. The show is sure to be different and entertaining, lets just hope it doesn’t go the way of the last female crime solver show that Thomas bestowed on us. I’m running out of money to throw at his Kickstarter campaigns.
The Messengers – A interesting concept and a seemingly fresh idea. A group of strangers are brought together and connected by a sudden blast that gives them something they all long for. But can just as easily tear it all away. Starring a few CW favorites, Shantel VanSanten and Sofia Black-D’Elia, I am certainly intrigued and will be tuning in.
