Previously, the CW shared only a profile view of Grant Gustin’s head in his Flash costume. The network was in a far more generous mood this morning and unveiled the full-length view.

Designed by award-winning designer Colleen Atwood, the costume is exactly what you’d expect. It has the Flash’s signature lightning bolt on his chest with protruding ear wings on the helmet. The most noticeable change is the color. It’s a darker deeper hue red than we’ve seen before. I’d say it’s almost maroon. At least in the promo pic it is. Check it out below.

Grant Gustin made his debut as Barry Allen on Arrow earlier this season. Through a freak accident, the scientest is given the power of super speed that transforms him into the Fastest Man Alive.

With production on The Flash pilot beginning this week, The CW has released the first official photo of Gustin as his superhero alter ego. Created by Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood, Gustin looks fantastic as the DC Comics character. Atwood also designs costumes for Arrow.

Joining Gustin in the cast are Jesse L. Martin, Carlos Valdes, Candice Patton and John Wesley Shipp, who played Allen in the 1990s live-action CBS program. Check out the photo below.

The loving came early from The CW for their best-performing shows. The network gave renewals for five series for the 2014-2015 television season.

Not surprisingly, Arrow is among the bunch. The superhero series is the most-watched program (3.9 million) on The CW. Despite being in its ninth season, Supernatural posted double-digit increases year-to-year. The Vampire Diaries also was on the receiving end of good news from the network.

The CW Snags Original Flash For Arrow Spinoff

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Before he played Dawson Leery’s dad on The WB teen drama, John Wesley Shipp donned red tights as The Flash for CBS. Over twenty years later, the 59-year-old returns to his superhero roots.

However, it’s unclear exactly what role he’ll play on the Arrow spinoff on the CW. All that was teased is that he’ll be a ‘mysterious character‘ that would expand to recurring status should the network pick up the pilot. Shipp is one of the final pieces in the casting process. Find out below who else is on board for The Flash.

The CW Taps Law & Order Veteran For Flash Spinoff

In: Donovan, TV Shows

When The CW first announced Grant Gustin as the Flash, I wasn’t super thrilled. Perhaps his appearance on Glee was the reason behind my feelings. After seeing him in action during a couple episodes of Arrow this season, I was sold.

Originally, the network planned to film a backdoor pilot, but changed its mind and is producing a standalone pilot instead. Arrow co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg as well as director David Nutter are behind the potential spinoff. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Gustin finally has some company. Find out who below.

The CW Reveals The Fates For Its Freshman Series

In: Donovan, TV Shows

CW executives were in a giving mood today. The network gave full season pickups for all three of their freshman series. Personally, I sampled all of them but gave each up after only a couple of episodes. None really captured me. I was hoping for so much more from The Tomorrow People. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the network’s midseason offerings, The 100 or Star-Crossed, are much better.

While The Originals pickup isn’t surprising given it’s doing the best out of the lot, Reign’s order is somewhat shocking. I thought for sure it was going to get beheaded. It’s so awful creatively and the lowest-performing out of the bunch.

The CW Begins Promoting Nikita’s Final Season

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Not sure how many Nikita fans there are here, but hopefully some of you find this post of interest.

I’ve been a fan of the CW series since the beginning. Even though it was always ratings-challenged, I’m glad the network stuck with it for several seasons. Even more appreciative that instead of making the writers quickly craft a series finale last year, they gave them a shortened fourth season (six episodes) to wrap things up properly. They’re also bringing in Judd Nelson for the spy series’ swan song. The final countdown begins November 22 with the finale airing December 27. At least they’ll be something new to watch during the repeat-heavy holiday season.

When the show returns, things don’t look great for our favorite heroine. Not only is Nikita trying to clear her name after being framed for the President’s assassination, but life on the homefront sucks as well. Looks like Mikita is on the rocks. In the first look at the final season, Michael declares he’s done fighting for them. Ouch. Check out the promo below.

It’s the moment Sex and the City fans have been jonesing for ever since The Carrie Diaries premiered midseason last year. At long last, the moment is here. The CW prequel finally introduces one of Carrie’s lifelong pals.

Who better for young Carrie to meet first than the one and only Samantha Jones. The younger version is portrayed by Lindsey Gort. It’s impossible to match the brilliance of Kim Cattrall, but based on first impression, Gort does a decent job of capturing the iconic character. She definitely has big Manolo pumps to fill. Cattrall was such a pro with her comedic skills that Samantha never became a ridiculous caricature.

The young Sam Jones makes her debut on the second season premiere titled, “Win Some, Lose Some,” on October 25th. After a series of surprising events, Carrie meets one of the greatest loves of her life while spending the summer in Manhattan living with Walt (Brendan Dooling). Check out the Samantha preview below.
