Until then though, take a look at some clips for CW’s new series that were released yesterday.

Fall may be a long time to wait, but know that FanBolt will be bringing you lots of coverage from the network this year at San Diego Comic Con! So stay tuned as we get a closer look into all the new series and returning fan favorites!

And let us know what series you’re most looking forward to on CW’s fall lineup! Is it the return of The Vampire Diaries and seeing how Elena’s new life will unfold? Or are you dying to see Beauty and the Beast and Kristin Kreuk’s return to the CW? Sound off with your opinions below!

  1. Arrow looks so good. love the action scenes. and Stephen Amell is looking hot in this clip (he has come a long way from playing Brady on TVD)

  2. I am so upset about the fact that Ringer was cancelled. I only hope Season One releases on DVD. I don’t think I’ve been this upset about a series getting cancelled in quite a while [actually, since Charmed concluded after it’s many seasons]. My only hope is that it is picked up as a soap opera [which is how I was seeing the series go anyways]. And also to add to throw salt on the burn The Secret Circle ends just as it takes an interesting turn [though I never really got hooked on that show]. The Vampire Diaries is really the only show on the network I religiously watch, and if that is to ever be cancelled, I will swear off the network for good. Whatever happened to the good old days of the WB, like Popular, Sabrina The Teenage Witch, Sister, Sister, Smart Guy, 7th Heaven, Gilmore Girls, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and Charmed? I may check out Beauty And The Beast, but I’m sort of afraid to watch due to the fact that it may be cancelled.

  3. Very glad that Hart of Dixie, Gossip Girl, Nikita, The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural will be back in the fall.
    Out of the new shows I’m really looking forward to Arrow, Beauty and the Beast and The Carrie Diaries. Not sure about Cult and Emily Owens, M.B. just yet. I’ll more then likely become more sure the closer we get to the fall season.
