So. Much. Pretty.
If there's anything we can count on from the CW, it's that they never fail to provide us with pretty people to ogle on TV. The network's five new shows next season are no exception, with stars like Vampire Diaries' Stephen Amell and Smallville's Justin Hartley and Kristin Kreuk fronting the series. If that isn't enough, the new shows look pretty darn awesome. (Sometimes God gives with both hands.)
We've got your first look at Arrow, Beauty and the Beast and Emily Owens, M.D....
From Greg Berlanti and starring Stephen Amell and Melrose Place's Katie Cassidy, Arrow is a dark retelling of DC's Green Arrow and focuses on affluent bad boy Oliver Queen (Amell), who develops some extraordinary abilities on a remote island (no, this is not Lost) and returns to the mainland to fight crime.
Beauty and the Beast marks the return of Kristin Kreuk to the network, as she's set to fill Linda Hamilton's shoes and take the lead female role in the network's reboot of CBS' series from the '80s. She plays Det. Catherine Chandler, who was saved by the titular Beast (Jay Ryan) when she was younger.
Emily Owens, M.D.
Emily Owens, M.D. (formerly First Cut) is a medical drama in the same vein as Grey's Anatomy and focuses on a young surgeon, Emily Barnes (Mamie Gummer), who learns that working in a hospital isn't all that different from attending high school. Also starring in the series are Smallville's Justin Hartley and Michael Rady.
(Trailers for midseason newbies, Cult, starring Matt Davis, and The Carrie Diaries, the network's Sex and the City prequel, have yet to be released.)
