4 New TV Shows Coming Soon to the CW
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.
