The CW

 

Unfortunately, Arrow is the only CW show with a proper trailer/sneak peek. For the other shows, they feature clips from last season and a few from the coming season in the end.

 

Arrow

The trailer opens up with Oliver Queen dealing with time in prison, including fighting with people he helped put away. In the wake of the Arrow’s absence, the team contends with the crackdown on vigilantes and the rise in crime. Black Siren, meanwhile, continues to masquerade as Earth 1’s Laurel risen from the dead and has assumed her role as ADA. The trailer ends showing a mysterious new archer all dressed in black.

Arrow moves Thursday to Monday nights and premieres at 8p E/ 7p C. As the following week has Legends premiering at the same time Arrow will presumably be moving to 9p then.

 

 

Starring: Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Katie Cassidy

Network: The CW
Date: October 15
Time: 8p E/ 7p C

 

Batwoman

In a video called Heroes vs Villains, featuring all the DC shows, CW revealed this year’s crossover will introduce Batwoman. This crossover will lead to a Batwoman series that will air sometime later next year. The show will be headed by writer and executive producer Caroline Dries, who has previously worked on ‘The Vampire Diaries’, ‘Melrose Place’ (The CW version), and ‘Smallville’. Greg Berlanti will also be an executive producer. This will be his seventh show on The CW. (Source: Variety)

The role of Kate Kane/Batwoman has yet to be cast, but the producers are looking to cast a Lesbian actress. (Credit: TVLine) Batwoman is DC comic’s first openly Gay character to get their own series (and not the overall first openly Gay DC hero as Variety states). As I am a huge fan of Batwoman I plan on writing a detailed article on the character in the coming months.

Altered Carbon

Netflix recently announced they have ordered a second season of ‘Altered Carbon’, it’s body swapping Cyberpunk series.

In the world of ‘Altered Carbon’ people live long lives by swapping bodies or ‘sleeves’, thanks to the technology that allows people to store their consciousness in vertebrae shaped chips called a ‘stack’ that is placed near the brain stem.

At the end of the first season, that was based on the book of the same name, the main character Takeshi Kovacs gives up his sleeve, played by Joel Kinnaman, to its original owner Elias Ryker as his name has been cleared.

In season two (which will most likely be based on the second novel ‘Broken Angels’) Takeshi’s new sleeve will be played by Anthony Mackie. He is probably best known for his role as Falcon from the ‘Avengers’ and ‘Captain America’ movies, and starring in the Oscar Winning ‘The Hurt Locker’. (Source: Hollywood Reporter)
