While fans of The Vampire Diaries are not looking forward to the show ending, now they have a reason to want to watch the series finale. That’s because Nina Dobrev Tweeted a copy of her name on the script and said, “I know it’s Thursday, but this is not a TBT.” That’s right, she will be back on The CW drama one last time. As who? Well, that we have to wait and see om March 10th!
How excited are you to see her back even if it is to say goodbye?
Tonight at 9p on The CW, Archie Comics is getting a modern retell in Riverdale and there are some things you should know about the teenage murder mystery before it airs. Here’s what the producers and cast told about the show at The CW’s TCA Winter Press Day!
1 – According to Producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa they originally wanted him to travel through time. When that idea didn’t seem to work, they thought about having him travel through portals. They laughed off that idea until they suggested to make Archie Louis CK and the episode should be like Entourage. As we know, all of those ideas did not happen. Thankfully, they met with Producer extraordinaire Greg Berlanti who suggested it be a coming of age story with a “dead body.”
2 – Beverly Hills, 90210’s Luke Perry describes it as, “A little bit of a Peach Pit vibe, but kind of a freaky Peach Pit, you know, scary, textured, intricate Peach Pit.”
3 – Josie and the Pussycats Dolls are on the show too and next week the rework The Archies’ classic song Sugar, Sugar.
4 – Next season, if the show gets picked up, we will see another character from Arhcie Comics, Sabrina the Teen Witch. She will be nothing like the character Melissa Joan Hart played, instead she will be more like Rosemary’s Baby. Whatever that means.
5 – Cole Sprouse, who plays Jughead, had come off of a three week binge of The Twilight Zone when he auditioned for the role, so he channeled his inner Rod Sterling when he read for the part. As you can guess the Producers liked it!
Just like you will like the show that debuts tonight.
NBC breathed life into Constantine, only to squash it. Then The CW gave him life for a night and they realized that people still wanted to see him live and help other people live. Therefore, they resurrecting him from the dead. In fact, you can say they are re-animating him. Actually, they are animating him.
Yesterday at The CW’s TCA Winter Press Day Mark Pedowitz, President of the network announced that, “Constantine is back as a new animated series for the CW Seed platform. It is from DC Comics, team (Greg) Berlanti and David S. Goyer and, of course, will feature star Matt Ryan as John Constantine.” Then he added, “Like our other animated CW Seed animated series, Vixen and”The Ray, we’ll have about five or six episodes that are about ten minutes each, premiering in the ’17 ’18 season.” That’s right, Ryan will reprise the role of the lovable anti-hero.
As of now that is all they know, but we know it is a magical thing to have him back in whatever way we can.
The CW started off their TCA press day announcing that they picked up 7 other their shows for next season. They are Supergirl, Jane the Virgin, The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Supernatural and Crazy Ex Girlfriend. Yes, the last one the list is not doing well in the ratings, but it is one of the most original shows on television today. Creatively they have lost their way this season, but it is still enjoyable. Just like Supernatural that is going into their lucky 13th season. Yes, 13! I hope the producers play with that. How fun will that be?
Waiting to get picked up are Frequency, No Tomorrow, The 100, iZombie, Riverdale and The Originals with the latter 4 yet to air any new episodes this season. Definitely not coming back are The Vampire Diaries and Reign will be ending their, well, reigns their season.
How do you feel about the pick ups and which ones do you want to get renewed? I am rooting for iZombie because this is the best show you are not watching!
The CW announced today that this will be Reign’s last season on their network. Is the news a surprise? If you saw the ratings, then the biggest surprise is that it is actually coming back for a 4th one in February. I know I stopped watching once they killed off Francis.
It went from a love story to a political one that no one cared about. So I say Au Revoir!
