Two weeks after revealing its fall schedule and providing clips from all five of its new shows, The CW posted a trailer for Star-Crossed, a midseason romance that may as well be titled Twilight… But With Aliens.
One week later, the CW has released full trailers for the rest of its new offerings — including a sexy period soap about Mary, Queen of Scots, an X-Men-esque epic from Greg Berlanti, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi show about hot young delinquents re-colonizing Earth, and a sure-thing Vampire Diaries spinoff. Check them all out below, starting with Reign (a.k.a. You Like Game of Thrones, Right?):
I predict Sexy Nostradamus costumes will be all the rage next Halloween. Next up is The Tomorrow People, a super-series with a super lead who may look familiar — he’s Robbie Amell, cousin of Arrow star Stephen.
The 100, a midseason drama, continues the sci-fi theme. As the trailer exposits, it takes place 97 years in the future, after a “nuclear apocalypse” has killed everything on Earth. The only remaining humans (we’re told) are those lucky enough to have been in space stations when the event occurred. As the show begins, they’ve sent 100 pretty young criminals back to the planet to see if it’s become inhabitable again.
And finally, there’s The Originals, which transports Vampire Diaries character Klaus from Mystic Falls to New Orleans. Who else is in the mood for beignets dipped in blood?
