Zombies, angels, artificial insemination, CIA, demons and superheroes — these are the kinds of themes we may be seeing Fall 2014 on The CW.
In January, the network started narrowing down their picks, considering potential series “Jane the Virgin”and “iZombie” (Deadline). As of now, The CW has ordered six pilots to be developed as potential new shows for the 2014-2015 television season, and sticking with what works, two spin-off series — “The Flash” and “Supernatural: Bloodlines” — may just follow the footsteps of “The Originals” and become a favorite among fans.
