The CW announced today that The Vampire Diaries will end its run this season. After 8 seasons we will say goodbye to our favorite Vampires and Witches from Mystic Falls.
The news is not a surprise because Kat Graham announced that she was leaving and Ian Somerhalder hinted he would be doing the same. Without them and Nina Dobrev, there really was no reason for the show to go on.
I think that it is time for the show to end and now they have 16 episodes starting on October 21st to perfect its farewell. Are you sad the show is almost over?
While all of the other broadcast networks will be bringing back their shows in September, The CW’s shows won’t be back until October. It stinks that we have to wait an extra few weeks, but they do say good things come to those who wait.
No Tomorrow is the first new show of theirs to debut and I have a feeling it was originally going to air before Jane the Virgin. But then when they acquired Supergirl at the last minute, they moved it Tuesdays. I say this because it is a weird fit with The Flash. As we learned when Barry Allen ran on to then CBS show, those two shows work really well together.
Frequency debuts the next night and you are going to love this show. At least I do.
The thing I am saddest about, is that we have to wait until October 21st to hear a new song from Rachel Bloom. I need my next Heavy Boobs and I Gave You A UTI now. I am going through withdraw.

John Barrowman was on ITV’s Loose Women today and they wanted to see if he could walk in high heels. The star of Arrow, who was sitting down, wanted to show the viewers at home that he was really wearing red stilettos; so he put his feet on the table. Only problem for him is that the chair wasn’t able to support his weight when he leaned back on it, so they both went tumbling down to the floor.
I don’t know what was more priceless about his fall, him comedically falling to floor or everyone on the show laughing at him instead of helping him.
Luckily, he was able to recuperate quickly, and with a big smile on his face!
Oh and now we know men can stand in high heels, they just can’t sit in them.
The CW announced its fall schedule today and I am sad that iZombie and Riverdale are being held to the midseason. I also don’t like that Supernatural is on Thursdays and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is on Fridays, but my DVR and I will learn to deal.
For you Vampire Diaries, as of now The CW is not planning for this season to be its last.

CBS picked up Life in Pieces yesterday (for some stupid reason because it’s heinous), and today they cancelled CSI: Cyber and Supergirl. But before you get too upset, Supergirl is flying over to The CW for its second season.
The expensive show is going to have its budget cut. According to Deadline, they will be move production from LA to Vancouver. I am sure this is only one of the many budget cutting changes ahead for the show. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was some casting changes to help lower the budget.
I don’t know where The CW is going to put it because they picked up all of their shows except for Containment, which they just cancelled. On that note, today they also picked up three pilots to series Riverdale, Frequency and No Tomorrow. For a network that only has 10 hours of programming, I don’t know how they are going to fit in 15 hours of scripted television. That should be fun a job for the bosses to figure out.
UPDATE: NBC picked up Chicago Justice, while ABC cancelled Nashville and Agent Carter. The news wasn’t all bad at ABC, they picked up The Real O’Neals, The Catch and American Crime.
Maybe it is because I am obsessed with plagues? Or maybe it’s because I worked in the area that is quarantined in Containment. Whatever it is, I am obsessed with this horrifying CW drama that debuts at 9p tonight.
A patient comes into the hospital with a cold, and hours later his doctor is sick and coughing up blood. She isn’t the only one, so is her boyfriend and anyone who came in contact with them. This unknown virus, which has never been seen before, is 100% fatal. Also if you come in contact with someone who has it, you will show symptoms within hours and die a few hours after that.
The CDC is located a few miles away from ground zero, and they don’t know what they are dealing with. What they do know is that they have to contain it and contain it now. So they section off that part of Atlanta, and no one is allowed in and no one is allowed out.
The police and medical personal abandon their jobs. Businesses start hiking up their prices. People are wary of strangers and will leave the sick out to die. In fact, they will also leave the healthy outside to die in order to protect themselves. As the tension grow, anger is almost as deadly as the virus.
Now the people of a small but populated section of Atlanta have to survive, not only the deadliest virus in centuries, they also have to survive each other. Both of which are proving to be nearly impossible.
Imagine being the teacher (Kristen Gutoskie) of 11 year olds, including your son, and you get trapped with them in the hospital where the first patients developed symptoms and died. How do you protect them? How do you keep them calm? How do you remain sane and try to be strong around them when you know what it is really going on?
Imagine being a cop (Chris Wood) and you have seen what this virus can do firsthand. What if you were one of the only cops left on the force in all of this madness? Would you still do a job that no one is doing?
What if you were very pregnant teenager (Hanna Mangan Lawrence) and your mom runs one of the only groceries in the cordoned off area? She wants you to give up the baby and you baby daddy is trapped outside of the quarantined area. What if all of your friends were dead from the epidemic? What if people wanted to take over the store and kill all of you?
These are just three of the many people trapped in Containment.
As the episodes go on, you watch as the healthy people turn on each other instead of helping one another. The resources will run out and getting them inside will be more challenging than originally thought. Will anyone get out of there alive? We will just have to keep tuning into this even series to find out.
Today, I re-watched the first two episodes and it really scared the crap out of me. The concept of sectioning off a major city and leaving the people there to fend for themselves while a deadly virus is sweeping through it is just too much to imagine. Especially for me, thinking what it would be like to be trapped with my former co-workers most of whom I hated and who also hated me. That is scarier to me than the virus.
Actually just checked, my old job was just outside of the contained area. Now I can sort of sleep tonight.
Ian Somerhalder attended Walker Stalker Con this weekend and he made a big announcement. The Vampire Diaries star said, “We have decided to do one last season to really do the story justice.” Kat Graham recently announced that next season would be her last, so without Damon and Bonnie, the news really shouldn’t be a surprise. Upsetting to the fans, but not surprising.
No word from The CW if it is indeed the final season.
How do you feel about it?
Rachel Bloom was on The Late Show yesterday and Stephen Colbert told her he doesn’t understand how musicals works. Even though he had a Christmas musical special on Comedy Central a few years ago. But I digress.
Then all of sudden, without warning, he broke into song and they did the rest of her interview in a musical format. Bringing a smile to all those who watched.
Almost as much as any boy who watched her sing Heavy Boobs on My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend on Monday’s episode.
It is very rare that a TV show has a theme song these days, and it is even rarer that you will ever hear the cast of that show sing it. Yesterday when the cast of iZombie was live Tweeting The CW show, they did just that. Listen to Rose McIver, Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli and Robert Buckley come alive to their opening tune. Just when I thought I couldn’t love the Zombie procedural cast anymore, they do this.
Now since I am talking about iZombie, I just to give McIver the accolade she deserves. Every week she plays Liv Moore and the person whose brain she ate. In other words, she truly is a great actress the way that she not only does she switch it up every week, she also switches it up in the episode. She should get more credit for that than she does.
The CW announced which shows of theirs will be back next year and the answer is all of them. That’s right, Crazy Ex Girlfriend, Jane The Virgin, The Flash, iZombie, Arrow, Supernatural, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The 100, Vampire Diaries, The Originals and Reign will all be back next year.
Finally a network who makes their fans happy! Although I was hoping that Reign was cancelled because it has so been sucking this season!
Seriously, I don’t know if this has ever happened before and I wouldn’t mind if it happened again. My DVR on the other hand feels differently because it likes when I give up shows. Like I just removed 2 new shows from Season Pass because when they came back from hiatus I didn’t care anymore about them.
