The CW has four new shows premiering this season that offer something for everyone. From comedy to horror to action to drama, the CW is trying a lot of different things this upcoming season, with the anticipated shows The Flash and Jane the Virgin set for fall premieres.
The Flash, Tuesday, October 7
The Flash is based on the DC comic of the same name and is a spin-off of the CW’s already popular show Arrow. Police scientist Barry Allen, who eventually becomes the Flash, first appeared in the two-part second season finale of Arrow as an investigator looking into some unsolved robberies that may have a connection to his own past. The show stars Grant Gustin as the superhero, who, through a freak accident, gains the power of super speed. Arrow was picked up for a third season earlier this year, and the CW is hoping to continue capitalizing on that show’s success with The Flash.
