The CW Renews 11 Of Its Shows

3/12/2016 9:45am EST
The CW Renews 'Supernatural,' 'Vampire Diaries,' Nine More Shows
The CW is sticking to most of its guns next season, with the network announcing Friday that it had picked up eleven of its primetime scripted series for another year - including all ten that are broadcasting new episodes right now.

That includes a whopping twelfth season for Supernatural (pictured above) and an eighth season renewal for The Vampire Diaries, which was in its first season since the departure of original star Nina Dobrev.

TVD spin-off The Originals will come back for season four, as will sci-fi drama The 100 and period soap Reign.

Surprising a grand total of no one, The CW...

Ciara Renee Excited To Play A Superhero

1/17/2016 1:09pm EST
Ciara Renee 'Really Excited' To Join 'DC's Legends Of Tomorrow'
Ciara Renee and her character on DC's Legends of Tomorrow aren't that far removed from each other, except for the superpowers. As Kendra Saunders, better known as Hawkgirl, Ciara has no idea that she has been repeatedly reincarnated and was an ancient warrior in a past life.

Similarly, the actress herself is almost brand new to television. Before her character was introduced in four episodes of The Flash and one installment of Arrow, the Broadway veteran's only television role came as a guest star on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. She spoke to Starpulse at New York Comic Con about now ...

'Legends Of Tomorrow' Only Days Away

1/17/2016 11:08am EST
EP Phil Klemmer On 'Legends of Tomorrow': 'It's Sort Of Anarchy'
Audiences are just days away from the latest DC Comics television series, DC's Legends of Tomorrow. Expanding on the world of Arrow and The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow assembles a massive super-team of both heroes and villains to save time itself.

At New York Comic Con, Starpulse spoke with Legends executive producer and showrunner Phil Klemmer, who discussed how this series differs from Arrow and The Flash and the massive appeal that superhero television has been enjoying in recent years.

"It's a little bit reverent in punk rock. It's sort of anarchy," he said when we asked him how the sh...

The CW Releases A New Clip For 'DC's Legends Of Tomorrow'

1/11/2016 11:04am EST
New Clip From 'DC's Legends Of Tomorrow' Premiere
We're ten days away from the premiere of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, the latest entry in the DC Comics TV universe, and so The CW has provided us with a sneak peek clip from the first episode!

Keep reading to see what happens when Legends takes a step back in time, heading to the 1970's. Hint: while it might be the era of disco, there's less dancing and more fighting.

From the executive producers of Arrow and The Flash, and taking place in the same universe as those shows, Legends of Tomorrow brings together a massive ensemble of characters - some of them heroes, some of them villains - t...

Stephen Amell And Jared Padalecki Share Some Bro Time

8/3/2015 10:45am EDT
Stephen Amell and Jared Padalecki
If seemed hotter than usual this weekend, it was probably a side-effect from "Supernatural's" Jared Padalecki and "Arrow's" Stephen Amell's Texas bro time. Thankfully, the CW stars are not shy about sharing their wine-soaked shenanigans on social media. Amell began by tweeting, "The bromance will be real this weekend," on Friday. Amell was in Austin, where Padalecki lives, to film his wine and travel web series, "Dudes Being Dudes In Wine Country," according to the show's official Facebook page.

Amell and Padalecki followed up that tweet with some strong encouragement for UFC fighter Ron...

Things You May Have Missed From San Diego Comic-Con

Jared Padalecki
San Diego's Comic-Con is the Superbowl of Geekdom. Not only is it a mecca for sci-fi mainstream and cult sci-fi-centric entertainment, it has also become a high-profile spoiler fest and a celebration for all fandoms involved. Here are the biggest moments from #SDCC15!

Fans give back. A touching gesture of support stunned and moved everyone in the famed H Hall, including "Supernatural" star Jared Padalecki. At Sunday's "Supernatural" panel, thousands of fans held up tea light candles along with an inspirational note to honor Jared Padalecki's work to help people battling mental illnes...

'Arrow': Was It A Season Or Series Finale?

5/14/2015 9:27am EDT
'Arrow' Finale Recap: 10 Very Final Moments From 'My Name Is Oli
Well, that's another season of "Arrow" in the books. What did you think? Was Oliver's climactic fight with Ra's al Ghul climactic enough? Were those last-minute twists enough to have you slavering over what's coming next season?

Do you really think "Arrow" will let its lead actor retire into sunny romantic solitude forever? Because, totally honest here, we don't buy that for a second.

Shall we count down the final ten "Arrow"-est moments of this final "Arrow?"

10. Hey Look, it's the Flash!

Oliver pitched in to help with Barry's big supervillain battle on Tuesday's "The Flash," which me...

5 Scoops: Season Finale Spoilers! -- See Details

5/13/2015 11:00am EDT
For television lovers, April rain brings May finale pain. The season for our favorite shows is ending, and while the cliffhangers will abound, we will have to face a long, hot summer without them. Oh, the agony! Maybe some juicy spoilers will temporarily relieve the pain. Here are 5 season finale scoops on "Arrow," "Scandal," "Outlander" and more...


While “Arrow’s” Oliver may be turning in an Oscar-worthy performance as the upcoming leader of The League of Assassins, there is still a massive battle ahead to save Starling City. confirms that it will claim one life, and t...

'The Flash' Recap: Season Penultimate Felt Like A Finale

5/13/2015 10:05am EDT
'The Flash' Recap: 'Rogue Air' Sets Up An Epic Finale (With A Li
"Rogue Air" really felt like a finale, didn't it? At least that final battle did; it definitely rang similar to the Arrow vs Dark Archer and Arrow vs Deathstroke final fights we've seen in the CW-verse already.

"Rogue Air" wasn't the finale, of course. We've still got one more hour before "The Flash" wraps up its first season, but it's a testament to how much coolness the CW has crammed into "The Flash's" fledgling season that "Rogue Air" has to function as two episodes smushed together into one.

One of those episodes would be the whole "Rogue Air" thing. Wells sets off the particle accel...

Recap: 'Arrow' Has Its Best Episode Of Year – Season Finale Next Week

5/7/2015 9:37am EDT
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Epic Moments From 'This Is Your Sword'
We're almost there- just one more week before 'Arrow' airs its third season finale and things get even crazier than they did last night. And "This is Your Sword" was plenty nuts.

We'd feel perfectly OK calling 'This is My Sword' the best episode of the season so far (although "Broken Arrow" and "The Brave and the Bold" were also extra great). Twists galore, one of the best fight scenes "Arrow's" given us all season (and one that finally makes good use of how many heroes there are on "Arrow").

And, admittedly, an ending that was cheap, stupid and manipulative. You can't win 'em all. And wi...

'Arrow' Season 3 Endgame Revealed

4/30/2015 12:12pm EDT
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Ridiculously Awesome Moments From 'Al Sah-Him'
It's really happening. Oliver (excuse us... Al Sah-Him) is officially evil. Our season three endgame has been revealed. People are still getting stabbed left and right (Thea/Roy, your stabbings are gone but not forgotten).

"Al Sah-Him was a very major episode for "Arrow." Also a very solid piece of television, delivering the major twists with more aplomb than we're used to (usually, "Arrow" just saves up its big twists for the last-second crazy reveal, but Akio's death was surprisingly restrained).

Ready? Let's count down the ten best (well, nine best and one downright terrible) moments f...

Top 'Arrow' Moments That Left Us Gasping

4/23/2015 9:42am EDT
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Insane Moments From 'The Fallen'
Asking didn't work. Impersonating the Arrow didn't work. Assassinating the Mayor of Starling City didn't work.

No, it turns out "stabbing Oliver's loved ones" is the tried-and-true way to convince Oliver Queen to become Ra's al Ghul. Which is exactly what happened in "The Fallen," the episode of "Arrow" that finally accomplished what "Arrow" has been building towards for almost an entire season now.

Oliver Queen is Ra's al Ghul. Which might make things awkward the next time "Arrow" crosses over with "The Flash."

Now let's count down the ten moments in "The Fallen" that left us gasping.

Last Night's 'Arrow' Was Everything A Fan Could Have Wanted

4/16/2015 10:16am EDT
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Bone-Crunching Moments From 'Broken Arrow'
If at any point this season, you've felt "Arrow" wasn't quite on its usual game (maybe a little slow, maybe a little unfocused), "Broken Arrow" was everything an "Arrow" fan could have wanted.

This was a devastating, incredible, ridiculously kick-ass return to form. "Broken Arrow" had metahumans. "Broken Arrow" had two of the best fight sequences "Arrow" has ever done. "Broken Arrow" had like, half the cast getting stabbed out of nowhere.

And "Broken Arrow" said goodbye to an old "Arrow" favorite. Sad stuff. All of which we'll get to in this week's countdown.


'The Flash' All Star Team Up Doesn’t Disappoint

4/15/2015 9:57am EDT
'The Flash' Recap: 'All Star Team Up' Is Another Classic CW Cros
No lie- we've been eagerly anticipating this "The Flash"/"Arrow" team-up ever since it was announced (and ever since the "Flash vs Arrow" blew doors down last December). And just like every episode of "The Flash," ever (this is an extremely consistently written show), it didn't disappoint.

"All Star Team Up" wasn't a full-on crossover- Ray and Felicity were our only two imports last night (although previews tell us that Laurel and Cisco will meet and Barry/Oliver will be a team once more before the season's over).

But the Ray/Felicity-only thing was in "The Flash's" best interest. As Feli...

'Arrow' Had Some Unexpected Shocking Moments

4/2/2015 10:07am EDT
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Shocking Moments From 'Public Enemy'
Well, that was unexpected. Seriously, that (can we say it? This is probably too high up on the page to say- we'll save the spoilers for a little lower) move that "Arrow" just pulled with "Public Enemy" is something most shows do in their final season. Maaaaybe the finale before the last season.

But "Arrow" pulled this move (the coast looks clear, so... telling the entire world Oliver Queen is the Arrow) midway through the third season. It's a gutsy move. And, perhaps with a lot of elbow grease and suspension of disbelief, something that can be undone, if Roy really commits to taking the fa...

'Arrow' Recap: 'Suicidal Tendencies' Ends In A Cliffhanger

3/26/2015 9:22am EDT
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Wedding-Worthy Moments From 'Suicidal Tendenci
You know, for an episode about Diggle ("Suicidal Tendencies" was about Diggle, wasn't it?), there wasn't too much Diggle in last night's episode of "Arrow."

Sure, "Suicidal Tendencies" was loaded down with the coolness -- the Arrow fought the Atom, people died, and Olicity was destroyed forever... or at least for at least a few episodes, anyway.

But Diggle and Lyla's honeymoon in war-torn Kasnia was the weakest chunk of the episode by far (oooh, that senator guy was really evil. Greeat) while the sidestories got all the coolest bits.

At least the cool bits were as awesome as they were la...

10 Badass Moments From Last Nights 'Arrow'

3/19/2015 9:00am EDT
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Badass Moments From 'The Offer'
"Arrow's" back from hiatus! And while "The Offer" may not have blazed in with the same DEAR GOD factor as "The Flash's" "Out of Time" last night, that's not to say "The Offer" was a weak outing. Just not one that includes 800 plot twists.

Team Arrow tensions rise, Ra's al Ghul's endgame creeps closer, and Merlyn just kinda dozed on the couch the whole time. Shall we count 'em down?

10. Ra's al Ghul's Sales Pitch!

Oliver Queen becoming the next Ra's al Ghul sounds... well, a little ridiculous. But we've gotta say, Ra's makes a pretty convincing argument.

As Ra's al Ghul 2.0, Oliver could...

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Killer Moments From 'Nanda Parbat'

2/26/2015 9:11am EST
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Killer Moments From 'Nanda Parbat'
"Nanda Parbat" is the last "Arrow" we're getting for about a month. Naturally, that means cliffhangers, and the last ten minutes (ish) of "Nanda Parbat" were crammed full of 'em.

Naturally, this episode's left us with a lot of questions to linger over in the next month.

Will Oliver really be the next Ra's al Ghul? Will Nyssa side with good or evil after learning the truth about Sara's death? Will the Atom resemble the actual, comic-book Atom in any way, or just be Ray Palmer in an Iron Man suit?

For the record, we're going with: no, yes, no. Now let's count down the best moments from "Na...

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Bromantic Moments From 'The Return'

2/19/2015 9:36am EST
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Bromantic Moments From 'The Return'
Compared to this week's episode of "The Flash" (which brought out every single major storyline the show's been working towards, then exploded them with a psychic gorilla), our corresponding "Arrow" episode comes off a little subdued.

That's not entirely fair, because "The Return" is nowhere near subdued.

The action was top-notch, and there was plenty of it. Other than a few moments with Laurel, everything was either Oliver kickin' butt with Maseo in the past, or kickin' butt with Thea in the present.

In both cases, Oliver got to strengthen his emotional bonds. He and Thea definitely seem...

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Truth-Telling Moments From 'Canaries'

2/12/2015 9:29am EST
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Truth-Telling Moments From 'Canaries'
This week's "Arrow" was all about two things. Old faces returning (say, Sara Lance and the second Vertigo) and characters finally admitting their bottled-up secrets.

That last one's a doozy. Because Thea was the last major "Arrow" character to be totally in the dark about the hero's secret identity. Unless Captain Lance counts, but he's got his own revelations to deal with this week.

With Thea in the know, who can Ollie tell next? Only a handful of "Flash" characters know his secret, so maybe he'll start popping up every few Tuesdays with a "Hey. I'm the Arrow."

But enough about that. Le...

'Arrow': 10 Incredible Moments From 'Uprising'

2/5/2015 10:43am EST
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Incredible Moments From 'Uprising'
Here's how you know "Arrow" wanted to make a big statement with "Uprising" and the return of Oliver Queen:

We don't just get one YOU HAVE FAILED THIS CITY. We get two special variations on Oliver's yelly, ridiculous and generally amazing catchphrase. First, when the Oliver-less Team Arrow confronts Brick for the last time, Laurel and Roy do a trade-off.

Laurel: Danny Brickwell!

Roy: You have failed this city!

Cue the cheers from living rooms around the country. Also, Oliver got to tell the good fightin' people of Starling City that they have not, in fact, failed this city. Such a proud ...

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Shocking Moments From 'Midnight City'

1/29/2015 9:11am EST
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Shocking Moments From 'Midnight City'
Welcome to week two of Arrow-less "Arrow." Last time, our valiant hero was a corpse for most of the hour (was he, though? From what Maseo and Tatsu are saying, he might have just been really, really close to death).

This time, Oliver was perfectly conscious, and kinda able to walk. But "Arrow" had more important things on its mind than Oliver doing some stretches in a cabin- so our titular hero had a scant few minutes onscreen in "Midnight City."

That's cool. More time for the supporting players. Now let the list-making begin.

10. Brick Invades the Police Station!

"Arrow's" definitely t...

'Arrow': 10 Can't-Stop-Sobbing Moments From 'Left Behind'

1/22/2015 11:05am EST
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Can't-Stop-Sobbing Moments From 'Left Behind'
We kinda figured that this first post-midseason-finale episode of "Arrow" would be an intense one.

Oliver Queen did die, after all. That's cause for some intense emotions to bubble up to the surface of this already very emotional superhero show.

But by no means were we expecting that much emotion. "Left Behind" was like a superhero funeral dirge. The equivalent of a small mountain of superhero-strength Kleenex.

Some serious sad times.

Alright, enough moping around- let's get to this week's list.

10. Diggle is the New Arrow?

It sure seemed that way, didn't it. Crooks are doing crook-li...

'Arrow': Blake Neely Tells Us How He Makes Everything Sound Super

1/21/2015 12:05pm EST
'Arrow': Blake Neely Tells Us How He Makes Everything Sound Supe
The CW's Arrow returns tonight with Oliver Queen continuing to save Starling City, but his heroics wouldn't sound nearly as good if not for Blake Neely, the man tasked with composing the score you hear every week on the hit television series.

Following the release of his second Arrow soundtrack album, Blake sat down with us for a second time (here's the first) to discuss the evolution of his score and how he separates the music of Arrow and its sibling The Flash from his many other television projects.

"I try to evolve the sound a little bit each season, just because I think you can get d...

5 Scoops: Spoilers For 'Arrow,' 'Castle,' 'Grey's Anatomy' And More!

1/20/2015 11:30am EST
Unfortunately winter vacations have ended and it's time to get back to the daily grind. Thankfully, the holiday hiatuses are over, and I can return to doling out delicious spoilers to your favorite TV shows! Here are five scoops for "Arrow," "Castle," "Grey's Anatomy" and more...

Be careful what you wish for. If you are a devoted "Arrowhead" like me, you may have been aggravated that the handsome and gigantic Diggle (David Ramsey) doesn't get to fight crime in a kickass costume. Sadly, that wish will be granted in upcoming episodes of "Arrow." With Oliver dead, Diggle will continue h...

The CW Renews 'Jane The Virgin, 'Arrow,' 'Supernatural' And More!

1/12/2015 12:34pm EST
The CW Celebrates First Golden Globe, Renews 'Jane The Virgin, '
Don't pack away your noisemakers just yet, CW fans, it's time to celebrate! The CW, who is celebrating its first ever Golden Globe win with "Jane The Virgin's" Gina Rodriguez taking home Best TV Actress in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy at last night's Golden Globes, just announced an astounding eight early renewals. "Arrow," "Jane The Virgin," "Reign," "Supernatural," "The 100," "The Flash," "The Originals" and "The Vampire Diaries" will all get 2015-16 seasons.

The young network is growing up, according the The CW president Mark Pedowitz. "Each of these series have helped define what ...

The Best TV Finales Of 2014

12/27/2014 3:00pm EST
The Best TV Finales Of 2014
All things must end- a film, a book, a refreshing, low-calorie Diet Dr. Pepper- but TV's different. On TV, a story grows over months (years, even), letting you build up a real, regular connection with those onscreen.

Then, when the ending hits, it slams into you with the impact of all those devoted hours that came beforehand.

It just feels so final, you know? Maybe that's why they call it a "finale."

2014 had its share of massive finales- maybe nothing on the level of "Breaking Bad" last year, but solid enders nonetheless. Shows that capped off their seasons with ridiculous cliffhangers...

'Arrow': 10 Heart-Stopping Moments From 'The Climb'

12/11/2014 9:35am EST
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Heart-Stopping Moments From 'The Climb'
Oh, mid-season finale cliffhangers. How cruel you are.

But few are as cruel as "Arrow"- because we can't even call "The Climb's" ending a "cliffhanger." That implies Oliver still had the hand strength to hang off a cliff edge, and at the end of this hour he was way too stabbed-to-death to handle that.

Really, this is more of a cliff-flopper. Cliff-dier, maybe.

But it was a pretty intense way to end a year of "Arrow," so let's not overthink the semantics. Instead, let's get down to the last "Arrow" countdown of 2014.

10. The League of Assassins Goes Kill-Crazy!

Ra's al Ghul is not a pat...

'Arrow': 10 Flashtastic Moments From 'The Brave And The Bold'

12/4/2014 10:43am EST
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Flashtastic Moments From 'The Brave And The Bo
Oh, if only every week could be "Flash vs. Arrow" crossover week (although given the CW's potential plans to integrate "Supergirl" into the Arrowverse, we're looking at a very real future where there is an "Arrow"-brand series on every night of the week).

But that's a long way away, and also probably not real. For now, we've got "The Brave and the Bold," where Barry, Cisco and Caitlin (no Dr. Wells, sadly- too evil) head to Starling City to assist Team Arrow with a criminal of their own.

And, like "The Flash's" time in the crossover sun, it's a CW superhero fan's beautiful dream. Let's be...

'The Flash' And 'Arrow' Swap Punches, Superhero Wisdom

12/3/2014 8:25am EST
'Flash vs. Arrow' Recap: The Flash And Arrow Swap Punches, Super
In theory, "Arrow" and "The Flash" should be the perfect pairing. One's relentlessly dark and grim, the other's a cheery comic book come to life. Also, the CW's been hyping this thing like no tomorrow. Does "Flash vs. Arrow" live up to the hype?

Good heavens, yes.

As per usual with "The Flash," there's a metahuman loose in Central City. This time, it's Roy G. Bivolo. Oliver Queen might not be a fan of giving menacing villains kooky names, but in this case, it's kind of necessary. Because Roy G. Bivolo. So instead, let's call him Chroma.

Chroma's running amok, using his glowing red eyes t...
