It's official title? DC's Legends of Tomorrow. Chills!

Also coming your way? Another show from The Vampire Diaries' Julie Plec, meaning she will have three series on the network, becoming the CW's version of Shonda Rhimes. Yas kween! And her new series happens to star a TVD fan-favorite.

Here's the CW's official description for each of its new shows:

DC's Legends of Tomorrow: When heroes alone are not enough...the world needs legends. Starring Brandon Routh, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Caity Lotz, Victor Garber, Arthur Darvill and more, the series will center on time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter who must assemble a disparate group of heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat that puts the planet and all of time itself in jeopardy. Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter will all serve as executive producers.

The Vampire Diaries, Chris Wood


Cordon: Julie Plec pulled from The Vampire Diaries' stacked roster of actors for her take on the original Belgian series about a mysterious and deadly epidemic that breaks out in Atlanta, resulting in a vast urban quarantine. The Vampire Diaries' Chris Wood stars (Does this mean Kai is leaving us?! Nooo!), along with Kristen Gutoskie, Claudia Black, George Young, Hanna Mangan Lawrence and Trevor St. John.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Originally a pilot for Showtime, the drama from Rachel Bloom centers on Rebecca Bloom as a successful, driven and possibly crazy young woman who gives up everything (an amazing Manhattan apartment and a partnership at a prestigious law firm), in the hopes of finding love and happiness and advanture in West Covina, Calif. Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer and The Amazing Spider-Man) and The Devil Wears Prada's Aline Brosh McKenna serve as EPs.
