2017-18 United States Television – The CW

ABCCBSFOX – NBC

 

Sorry for the delay, life gets in the way. Hey, that rhymes. Anyway, the penultimate channel is The CW.

Cancelled:

The CW have cancelled Frequency, No TomorrowReignThe Vampire Diaries.

I don’t know much about any of these shows, expect for The Vampire Diaries that some people seem to go on and on about.Something to do with vampires, I think. 😉 . The CW has kept hold of the spin off series The Originals.

Returning:

The 100                   Arrow
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend       The Flash
iZombie                   Jane the Virgin
Legends of Tomorrow       The Originals
Riverdale                 Supergirl
Supernatural

New:

Black Lightning – A retired superhero becomes a vigilante for justice.

CAST: Cress Williams (Hart of Dixie), Nafessa Williams, China Anne McClain, Christine Adams

This takes  a different look at superhero adaptions, showing that it is like to get back into the game instead of an origin story. Could be interesting. But I think we will just end up being the same at all the others that we have at the moment.


Dynasty – A modernized reboot of the 1980’s prime time soap opera, ‘Dynasty‘.

CAST: Grant Show, Nathalie Kelley (The Vampire Diaries, Revenge), Elizabeth Gillies (Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll), Sam Adegoke (Murder in the First), Robert Christopher Riley (Hit the Floor), Alan Dale (The O.C.), Rafael de la Feuente

Pass, not even going to bother with this.


Life Sentence – When Stella finds out her terminal cancer is cured, she’s going to have to learn to live with all the choices she’s made when she decided to “live like she was dying.”

CAST: Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars), Dylan Walsh, Gillian Vigman, Elliot Knight, Carlos PenaVega, Jayson Blair, Brooke Lyons.

This show feels even worse than the previous one mentioned, but that’s what you get when to turn onto The CW


Valor – The boundaries between military discipline and human desire are tested on a U.S. Army base that houses an elite unit of helicopter pilots trained to perform clandestine international and domestic missions. The drama unfolds in the present as well as in flashbacks to a failed mission involving one of the first female pilots in the unit, ultimately uncovering layers of personal and government/military secrets and leading to a season-long plan to rescue a group of MIA soldiers.

CAST: Matt Barr (Sleepy Hollow), Charlie Barnett (Chicago Fire), W. Tre Davis, Christina Ochoa, Nighel Thatch, Corbin Reid, Melissa Roxburgh

The CW’s attempt to be hardcore and edgy, but it also comes out in the same year as many other war based shows. It’ll find it hard to mix with the big leagues.
