at . Comments

It's another great day for DC Comics fans, as the Arrow/Flash spinoff series was just given the green light.

Greg Berlanti's Legends of Tomorrow joins Julie Plec's Cordon and former Showtime half-hour comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend as three new hour-long series added to The CW lineup for 2015-16.

We have a rundown of each new series below.

ATOM - Arrow Season 3 Episode 17

DC's Legends of Tomorrow comes to us from Greg Berlanti. The official tagline is: When heroes alone are not enough ... the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?

The spinoff will feature an all-star cast from Arrow and The Flash, including Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/ATOM), Caity Lotz, Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heatwave), Victor Garber (Martin Stein), Ciara Renee (Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl and Arthur Darvill (Rip Hunter). 

Cordon comes by way of Julie Plec and centers on the city of Atlanta after a deadly epidemic breaks out and the city is quarantined, forcing those inside to fight for their lives while officials desperately search for a cure. Cordon stars Chris Wood (The Vampire Diaries), Claudia Black (Farscape); George Young, David Gyasi, Christina Moses, Hanna Mangan Lawrence (Spartacus: War of the Damned) and Trevor St. John (One Life to Live).

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend began on Showtime as a half-hour comedy, but will be re-developed for The CW as an hour long series with musical elements, starring Rachel Bloom (Robot Chicken) as Rebecca Bloom, a successful, driven, possibly crazy young woman who gives up everything, including an apartment in Manhattan and her partnership in a law firm, in a desperate attempt to find love and romance in the hotbed of excitement of West Covina, CA. The selling point? It's only two hours from the beach, four in traffic!

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.

Penelope: Cheryl Marjorie Blossom! What have you done?!
Cheryl: Isn’t it obvious, Mother? I saved Christmas. Look how happy Nana Rose is.
Penelope: You spoiled wretched little brat. How do you expect to pay for all of this?!
Cheryl: Oh, I was thinking...maybe you could go to Mr. Lodge for a job? Of course, he’d probably ask what skills you have and you’d be forced to admit that only skill you have is being a terrible mother. So I guess you’re gonna have to get creative in the New Year.
[Cheryl leaves]
Nana: You should have drowned them at birth, like a basket of kittens.
