The CW Orders ‘The Flash’ & ‘iZombie’ To Series

DC Comics inspired TV shows dominated the most recent development season with the Batman prequel series “Gotham” at Fox and “Constantine” in the running at NBC. However, The CW has committed to adding two more DC series next season to join “Arrow” on the fall schedule.
“The Flash” and “iZombie” have both been picked up to series by The CW. Based upon the iconic DC superhero, “The Flash” was seeded on “Arrow” earlier this season as Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen was introduced in a two part episode. “iZombie” is loosely based on the DC/Vertigo series by Chris Roberson and Mike Allred, with “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero handling the adaptation.
The CW also picked two dramas from Warner Bros. TV, including “Jane The Virgin” and “The Messengers.” In a surprising move, The CW declined to pick up the “Supernatural: Bloodlines” pilot that was recently teased in a backdoor pilot episode of “Supernatural.” The CW tried the same strategy the year before with “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals,” but fan reaction to “Supernatural: Bloodlines” wasn’t very enthusiastic.
“The 100,” “Hart of Dixie” and “Beauty and The Beast” were all renewed despite struggling in the ratings. But to make room for the new shows, ‘The Tomorrow People,” “Star-Crossed” and “The Carrie Diaries” were all canceled. 
The CW will reveal more specifics about its new shows during its upfront presentation later this month.
