CW has released trailers for its new shows, including the anticipated Arrow spin-off The Flash.

The Arrow spin-off stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, a scientist who's gifted with the power of super-speed in the aftermath of a freak accident that transforms him into the Fastest Man Alive.

It's official: Marc Guggenheim deserves a vacation. In the past few years, he's not only been executive producing and writing The CW's Arrow, he's also been penning screenplays (Green Lantern, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and Perry Mason for Robert Downey Jr.), and agreeing to take over the X-Men comic at Marvel. Oh, and he just published his first novel, a political legal thriller called Overwatch. Who needs sleep, right?
The CW has picked up four new series for next season, including Rob Thomas'iZombie and the Arrow spin-off The Flash, TVGuide.com has learned. The network also ordered Jane the Virgin and The Messengers.
