The CW: Fall TV Preview 2013

This week, we've looked at new shows that will debut on NBC, FOX, ABC, and CBS next season. Now it's time to examine what "the little network that could," the CW, has in store.  Here's what's coming up:

New shows on the CW in Fall 2013

The Originals - The popular show The Vampire Diaries earns a spin-off, which was teased in an episode on April 25. Fans will be able to follow the saga of Klaus and his family in the French Quarter of New Orleans.

Reign - Only the CW could deliver an historic costume drama aimed at teens about Mary, Queen of Scots!


The Tomorrow People - Based on the 1970s British sci-fi series (which had a previous short-lived remake in the 1990s), once again we see a group of elite, evolved, super-powered humans fighting evil forces.

New Shows on the CW in Midseason 2013/2014

The 100 - Inspired by the upcoming book series by Kass Morgan, set a hundred years after a nuclear holocaust, a hundred juvenile delinquent young people from the space stations that house the last survivors of humanity are sent down to Earth to see if it's habitable again. Henry Ian Cusick and Isaiah Washington play adults overseeing the project aboard the stations.


Star-Crossed - Formerly titled Oxygen, Romeo and Juliet receives a science fiction twist as a human girl and an alien guy fall in love.

Show That Might Still Appear on the CW's Schedule

Famous in 12 - In this reality show with Harvey Levin of TMZ, a family moves to Los Angeles and has twelve weeks to become famous.

The 2013 upfront advertising market is now over for the major nroadcast networks, and it's time to speculate on which of these new shows announced this week will become household names and which will fail. Hopefully, there are a few solid hits in the bunch.
