The 2016 Upfronts: What We’ll Be Watching This Season on The CW!By Delaina Dixon | May 20, 2016 | Entertainment
This season, The CW is speaking to the ladies! The network, which is now 10 years old, opened with some fun banter between its two Golden Globe darlings, Rachel Bloom and Gina Rodriguez, in their respective characters Rebecca and Jane, from two of the DivaGals’ fave shows, Crazy Ex Girlfriend and Jane The Virgin. The CW has added CBS’ Supergirl to its lineup, and yes, they promise the biggest superhero crossover to happen on broadcast TV.
The CW is also bringing Riverdale, a live action version of Archie to the screen. We hope to see the network add some of the iconic comic book strip’s African-American characters to the cast ΓÇô that would be Chuck Clayton and Nancy Woods (we did our Riverdale homework!), to join Valerie Brown (Irie Hayleau) from Josie and the Pussycats.
The CW has launched CWGood, a digital platform featuring The CW stars and charitable efforts. The network will broadcast My Last Days … a documentary produced by Jane The Virgin‘s Justin Baldoni, about people with terminal illnesses living out their last dreams.
Here are the shows we can’t wait to see on The CW this upcoming season.
No Tomorrow (Tuesdays)
What’s It About? A gal who’s too timid to live life to the fullest meet a man who believes the world is ending in eight months ΓÇô and encourages her to jump feet first into her bucket list.
Our Divalicious Take. This new dramedy is based on a Brazilian series, which should give it an interesting global feel. We liked #WBWD Joshua Sasse on Galavant, and he’s looking as handsome as ever as the doomsday theorist, and glad to see Jonathan Langdon (Special Correspondents) as part of the cast.
What’s It About? SoooΓÇª a young police detective gets on a old ham radio and talks to her dead father, who was killed during an undercover sting. She warns him of his death, which he avoids, but now a serial killer is back on the loose and life, as she knew it, has disappearedΓÇª
Our Divalicious Take. We’re a little confused ourselves, but if we can make the pieces fall into place, this could be an exciting time warp thriller. Mekhi Phifer stars.
