The CW has ordered 3 new series’ and two of them may not come as a big surprise.
The network has ordered Julie Plec’s latest project Cordon, which comes as no surprise since the executive producer already has 2 successful shows in rotation at the network (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals), as well as the much-talked about Arrow/ The Flash spin-off, now named DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Renewals from the network include basically all of their shows. The 100, Arrow, Beauty and the Beast, The Originals, Reign, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, The Flash, iZombie and Jane the Virgin were all picked up for another season, while Hart of Dixie and The Messengers didn’t make the cut.
Check out the descriptions of the new shows below, thanks to The Hollywood Reporter:
The series examines what happens when a deadly epidemic breaks out in Atlanta and a large city quarantine is quickly enforced, leaving those stuck on the inside to fight for their lives. It tells the story of loved ones tragically torn apart, and how the society that grows inside the cordon reveals both the devolution of humanity and the birth of unlikely heroes. Cordon is based on the Belgian series created by Carl Joos.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow
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 drama is executive produced by Arrow creators Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim and will star The Flash‘s Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold); Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heatwave); Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein/one half of Firestorm); Arrow’s Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/the Atom; Caity Lotz, whose Arrow character Sara Lance/Canary died earlier this season; Ciara Renee (Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl); Franz Drameh (Jay Jackson) and Arthur Darvill.
Rachel Bloom (as Rebecca Bloom), a successful New York attorney who abandons her charmed life to start over again in West Covina, Calif. Bloom, the show’s co-creator, is joined as executive producer by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada) and Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer).
