The CW Passes on ‘Supernatural’ Spinoff ‘Bloodlines’

May upfronts are upon us. It’s that special time of the year in the TV industry when decisions are made as to which shows will be renewed for another season and which pilots will be picked up to series. Unfortunately, since there’s only so much room on a network’s schedule, the rest won’t be able to make it to next fall or spring.

Spinoffs, however, operate under a different set of circumstances, because their fates are often decided much earlier when the characters and stories are first introduced in an episode of the original series, also known as a backdoor pilot. In a vow of confidence, The CW’s Arrow spinoff The Flash, which received a series order today, was lucky enough to film a standalone pilot, but Supernatural spinoff Bloodlines had to make do with a backdoor pilot that aired in April.

The 100 Sneak Peeks: Fear Isn’t Their Only Weapon

A number of episodes ago, The CW’s post-apocalyptic series The 100 had a deadly acidic fog come rolling through the woods and endangering those on the ground, while just last week a relentless hurricane pushed through their camp. The environmental dangers on the planet are very real, not to mention the threat of the Grounders themselves, and in tonight’s all-new episode a far more dangerous problem is on the horizon.

In “Day Trip,” Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Bellamy (Bob Morley) go off in search of supplies for the coming winter, something that could be brutal to their numbers if they’re not prepared, but what they find instead will bring the war against the Grounders closer to home. Some of the 100 also get a hold of hallucinogenic nuts, making for some fun albeit scary escapades.

The 100 Sneak Peeks: Morality Will Be Tested

Sounds like there’s going to be plenty of guilt to go around on this week’s The 100, but first let’s take a look at last week’s episode and talk about what went down on the ground and up above on the Ark.

“His Sister’s Keeper” finally gave us that backstory we’d been wanting since the first episode on the complicated relationship between Bellamy (Bob Morley) and his sister, Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos). In the form of flashbacks to their time on the Ark, combined with Bellamy and Jasper (Devon Bostick) saving Octavia from a Grounder in the present, we learned the two are definitely still holding some deep grudges against each other about the past. (Bellamy: “My life ended the day that you were born.”) And while many in the search party for Octavia sadly didn’t make it past the Grounders’ booby traps, Finn (Thomas McDonell) also managed to get stabbed in the chest with a knife, naturally, just after girlfriend Raven (guest star Lindsey Morgan) found out from Clarke (Eliza Taylor) that he cheated on her.

‘Days of Future Past’ Writer Talks ‘X-Men’ TV Show, R-Rated ‘Deadpool’ Movie

In this year alone, no less than four films based on Marvel comic book properties will reach the big screen, including Disney’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy, Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. But on television – of the live action variety – the superhero genre is mostly vacant.

Of course, that will soon change with a slew of new series scheduled to hit the airwaves next season, including The Flash, Gotham, Daredevil, Luke Cage, and more. But despite this sudden surge to the small screen, there’s one studio holding the cards to a lot of very important superheroes that hasn’t announced any plans for television. That is, until now.

‘Sherlock’ One-Off Special Episode May Air Before Season 4

Between Doctor Who, Downton Abbey and Sherlock, there’s no denying that the popularity of British TV series around the world has been on the rise the last five years. So much so, in fact, that the actors on those series have become increasingly in demand, leaving many of them with the decision to either stay on their current series or make the leap across the pond for greater success in Hollywood.

Luckily, Sherlock stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have made the choice to continue filming their hit BBC series abroad while also pursuing their careers in the United States. Freeman currently stars in FX’s new series Fargo, and both he and Cumberbatch will next appear in the recently renamed The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
