The CW has handed out early renewals to five of its biggest hits.
Returning for the 2014-15 broadcast season are veterans Arrow, The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural as well as rookies The Originals and Reign, the network announced Thursday. Arrow will be back for its third season, Vampire Diaries its sixth and Supernatural will hit season No. 10.
[Warning: Major spoilers ahead from Wednesday's episode.]
Arrow dropped big revelations during Wednesday's episode, "Heir to the Demon." With several weeks off for the Winter Olympics, the residents of Starling City will have some major issues to deal with when The CW comic-book drama returns in late February.
Is Roy Harper finally on the road to becoming Oliver Queen's sidekick on Arrow?
Though it may appear that way, Roy is also forced to learn how to control his superhuman strength — thanks to a dose of the powerful Mirakuru serum — without harming those around him. In the last episode, which saw Roy nearly beat a man to death, that is a tall order. That's where Oliver, under his Arrow cover, comes in.
Actor Colton Haynes talks to The Hollywood Reporter ahead of Wednesday's episode about Roy's "long journey" to possibly joining the Arrow's inner circle, Thea's impending implosion and why people should not trust Roy for the rest of the season.
Slade Wilson's vengeful plan to wreak havoc on Oliver Queen has hit a rough patch on Arrow.
Slade (Manu Bennett) brings his underling, Sebastian Blood (Kevin Alejandro), into his office after Laurel (Katie Cassidy) nearly unravels the plot when she discovers through Sebastian's institutionalized mother that he killed his own father. In a clip from Wednesday's episode "Blind Spot," which The Hollywood Reporter exclusively debuts, Slade interrogates Sebastian on why he's suddenly lost the skill of covering his tracks.
Arrow returns with several looming questions following the events of the winter finale.
With Oliver Queen's former mentor Slade Wilson back in action and ready to turn Oliver's world upside down, the CW's comic-book drama kicks off the remaining episodes of the season with a flurry of action. Not only will Oliver likely face off against his island friend, but in Wednesday's return, he will have his hands full with the latest DC Comics villain Shrapnel (guest star Sean Maher), Roy's uncontrollable super strength and an unraveling Laurel.
The CW has released another clip from Wednesday's anticipated episode, "The Scientist," during which Barry Allen/Flash (Glee's Grant Gustin) is introduced into the Arrow universe. Barry comes into Starling City after an "unexplained robbery" hits Queen Consolidated.
Glee alum Grant Gustin will enter the fold for a two-episode run on The CW comic-book drama beginning Dec. 4 as Barry Allen, the genius scientist who eventually turns into the speedy superhero simply known as Flash. In his first episode, "The Scientist," Barry makes his way to Starling City after an "unexplained robbery" hits Oliver Queen's family company, Queen Consolidated.
