A queen, an immortal vampire-werewolf hybrid baby and teenagers with superpowers.
Yep, sounds like the new fall season on the CW! After unveiling its brand-spankin'-new schedule on Thursday, the network released previews of the new series viewers can expect to see, including the highly anticipated Vampire Diaries spin-off The Originals starring fan favorites Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies and Claire Holt, as well as Greg Berlanti and Julie Plec's new drama The Tomorrow People.
Plus, we're got your first look at Reign, The 100 and Star-Crossed...
The Originals: Are you new? Oh, OK, fine: Morgan, Gillies and Holt leave Mystic Falls to headline this spin-off from Plec about the Originals taking back control of New Orleans, a supernatural hot spot they helped create. Charles Michael Davis plays Klaus' former protege turned new king of the French Quarter Marcel, and Phoebe Tonkin stars as Hayley, the werewolf having a baby with Klaus. With vampires, werewolves, hybrids and witches all in the mix, let the battle for New Orleans begin! The series airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m.
(Yes, we're aware the clip doesn't feature any new footage, but not everyone watches The Vampire Diaries, so not everyone saw the back-door pilot. That's just the sad world we live in, OK!)
The Tomorrow People: From Arrow's Greg Berlanti and The Vampire Diaries' Julie Plec, this drama centers on a group of young people who represent the next stage of human evolution; that is, they have special abilities à la X-Men and Heroes. Arrow star Stephen Amell's cousin Robbie Amell and Supernatural standout Mark Pellegrino star in the project, which is based on the original U.K. series. The series will air Wednesdays at 9 p.m.
Reign: Prepare to learn the story of Mary Queen of Scots (played by Adelaide Kane, who can be seen on Teen Wolf's upcoming season) rise to power in this drama centering on the 15-year-old's arrival in France and engagement to Prince Francis. Coming along for the ride are her three BFFs as ladies-in-waiting who will help her navigate the French court, which is full of foes, dark forces and sexual intrigue. The series airs Thursdays at 9 p.m.
Star-Crossed: 90210's Matt Lanter stars as an alien boy who is the member of a group called The Orion 9 that is integrated into a regular high school 10 years after their people landed on Earth and were placed in internment camps. Of course, he falls in love with a human girl, played by Friday Night Lights' Aimee Teegarden. Think District 9 meets Roswell. Grey Damon and Vampire Diaries fan-favorite Malese Jow also star. The series will debut at midseason.
The 100: After nuclear war destroys civilization, Earth's lone survivors are living in a spaceship in this postapocalyptic drama. The title refers to the 100 juvenile delinquents that are sent back down to Earth to see if the planet can be lived on again. Newcomer Eliza Taylor, Grey's Anatomy's Isaiah Washington, Lost's Henry Ian Cusick and Arrow's Kelly Hu all star. The series will debut at midseason.
