The CW Orders The Flash to Series, Passes on Supernatural Spinoff

at . Comments

In the wake of three cancelations and three renewals, The CW has ordered four new shows to series for 2014-2015.

The announcement is highlighted by THE FLASH,  a quasi spinoff of Arrow that will feature Grant Gustin in the famous comic book role, centering on scientist Barry Allen and his power of super speed.

It has passed, however, on Supernatural: Bloodlines, a potential spinoff whose backdoor pilot was not well received.

It's The Flash!

Other dramas ordered to series include:

iZombie: A zombie who is also a medical student takes a job at a coroner’s office because she must eat brains in order to remain human. She ends up helping police solve crimes. Stars David Anders, Robert Buckley and Rose McIver. Produced by Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars).

Jane the Virgin: A religious young Latina woman ends up artificially inseminated… by accident. Stars Gina Rodriguez, Yael Grobglas and Brett Dier.

The Messengers: When a mysterious object crashes down to earth, a group of seemingly unconnected strangers die from the energy pulse, but then awaken to learn that they have been deemed responsible for preventing the impending Apocalypse. Stars Shantel VanSante, Sofia Black-D’Elia and Joel Courtney.

We'll have A LOT more on these new shows - air dates/time, photos, trailers - next Thursday when The CW makes its Upfront presentation in New York City.

The CW Quotes

Veronica: What the hell is a "Sticky Maple"?
Kevin: It's kinda what it sounds like. It's a Riverdale thing.
Veronica: No, Kevin, it's a slut-shaming thing. And I'm neither a slut nor am I going to be shamed by someone named, excuse me, Chuck Clayton! Does he really think he can get away with this? Does he not know who I am?! I will cut the brakes on his supped-up phallic symbol.

Betty: How many times, Jug? How many times are we gonna push each other away?
[She tears up]
Jughead: Until it sticks. That was my dad’s one chance of going straight and I wrecked it! I’m not going to destroy you too.
Betty: Just tell me what happened, Jug. Jug!
[She whispers]
Betty: Don’t leave, please.
Jughead: Go home.
[He walks away]
