The CW’s The Messengers Introduces The Angels Of The Apocalypse

fb share tweet share

With the likes of The 100, Arrow, and The Flash, The CW has put together a surprising strong line up of genre shows. And if you’re into vampires, they’ve got you covered on that front, too. Over the next few months, they’re looking to add even more with new shows like iZombie set to debut. One of their more interesting looking additions is the apocalyptic drama The Messengers, and the network has released this quick new trailer to tease the premiere.

This video gives you the basic set up of the series: there’s some kind of mystery comet or asteroid or something that crashed to Earth, apparently killing a handful of people. Only they don’t stay dead and are resurrected in order to fight the devil, yes, like the devil, devil, as that one kid says. That’s a tall order for anyone, let alone the recently deceased, and this footage introduces you to the so-called Angels of the Apocalypse.

The Flash Goes Bowling In These Images From The Next Episode Out Of Time

fb share tweet share

FlashThe CW’s adaptation of DC Comics classic The Flash has been consistently fun throughout the course of its freshman season. It is, however, in the middle of an extended break, but it will be back just in time for St. Patrick’s Day on March 17. The next episode is titled “Out of Time,” and a slew of new stills from the return have hit the airwaves.

If you’re caught up, you know things are going to get rough for the team from S.T.A.R. Labs. The reality of Dr. Harrison Wells’ (Tom Cavanaugh) intentions, as well as his still-unclear role in the death of Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) mother, is getting harder and harder to hide, and it keeps coming closer and closer to the surface. When this truth comes to light, the betrayal is going to be hard for Barry, Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), and Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) to deal with, as they all look at him through rose-colored glasses.

The Flash Is Out Of Time In This Extended Preview

fb share tweet share

On March 17, while much of the world will be out getting wasted on green beer and pretending to be a little bit Irish for St. Patrick’s Day, some of us will be sitting in front of our TVs, patiently waiting for the next episode of The CW’s The Flash. Especially after the way last night’s episode ended. Since it’s a while to wait, and we’re going to be gnawing on our fingernails until then, the network has released this extended look at what’s next.

If you’re not caught up, you might want to sit this one out as there might be some spoilers if you aren’t current.

This iZombie Trailer Puts Liv Through An Intervention

fb share tweet share

It’s been a weird roller coaster ride of wavering expectations as we move closer to the premiere of The CW’s iZombie, as my feelings about the show have gone from warm to cold and back to warm now that we’ve seen actual footage. The newest trailer, which you can watch below, is focused more on the main character Liv (Rose McIver) dealing with people trying to understand her secret, but I doubt anyone beyond Dr. Ravi (Rahul Kohli) would really understand. Check it out!

The Messengers Trailer Fights To Heal The World And Save Humanity

fb share tweet share

This has been a big couple of days for The CW. They network renewed a handful of their shows, including The 100 and The Flash; they announced their midseason lineup, which includes the debut of iZombie; and now they released this extended trailer for The Messengers, which offers our first look at the upcoming series.

There’s a weird, but potentially cool mix of influences here. You get hints of alien invasion, there are some apocalyptic overtones, supernatural elements, maybe the devil, good versus evil, and more. It has an almost The Stand kind of vibe to it, with a bunch of strangers having to come together to battle a mysterious sinister figure and prevent Armageddon.

The CW Is Planning Another Apocalypse With This New Project

fb share tweet share

el barcoWhile I’m not a big fan of any of their programming, The CW earns some applause for opening up their young adult-skewed programming to allow for a variety of genres and stories over the past couple of years. Following in the footsteps of their low-rated sci-fi drama The 100, which began its second season last week, the network is developing another post-apocalyptic drama called The Magellan, in which the world turns into one big dangerous swimming pool. Just think of it as The Last Sailboat.

The Magellan takes place in a world where “a mysterious global cataclysm strands a group of students, teachers and crew on a Semester at Sea sailboat.” The entirety of Earth seems to be covered in water, so it’s the life of sailors for this crew, as they search for other life somewhere else on the planet. Their mission won’t be easy, of course, as everyone in the group must learn to work together to survive, while all the usual CW bullet points (love, family, and friendship) also rear their emotional heads.
