The CW has today announced its upcoming programming slate for the 2014/15 season. Arrow spin off, The Flash, received a full order alongside iZombie from Rob Thomas. Shockingly, Beauty and the Beast, starring Smallville's Kristen Kreuk got picked up for a third season despite the remainder of season 2 being shifted to the networks summer schedule.
The spin off to veteran drama Supernatural was almost a shoe in with early news of the show receiving a positive buzz but the back door pilot was met with a poor critical and fan reaction.
In more positive news, Supernatural itself received an early pick up and the CW network have stated that another Supernatural spin off in the future given the shows dedicated fan base.
Are you upset by this news or any other of The CWs recent announcements which saw Star-Crossed and The Tomorrow People being canceled, sound off below!
"Bloodlines" Official Description: SAM AND DEAN INVESTIGATE MONSTER FAMILIES IN CHICAGO - Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) investigate a case in Chicago, where they discover that various mafia-esque monster families are, unknown to humans, running the underbelly of Chicago. One is a family of shapeshifters run by Margo Lassiter (guest stars Danielle Savre), whose leadership is thrown into question when her brother David (guest star Nathaniel Buzolic) returns home. The other reigning family in town is made up of werewolves, lead by Julian Duval (guest star Sean Faris). While in Chicago, Sam and Dean meet Ennis (guest star Lucien Laviscount), a man with a personal vendetta against the monsters. The Winchesters warn Ennis about heading into the hunter lifestyle, but Ennis refuses to listen and starts down a dangerous path. Robert Singer directed the episode written by Andrew Dabb (#920).
