CW Orders Arrow/Flash Spin-off, New Drama from Vampire Diaries Boss

The spin-off finally got a name: "Legends of Tomorrow"

Jessica Roy

Fresh off its cancellations of Hart of Dixie and The Messengers, the CW has announced three new series for this fall.

The new shows include the much-talked-about Flash/Arrow spin-off, a drama about life inside a quarantine zone, and a comedy about a woman getting a fresh start.

Fall TV Preview: The new shows coming in 2015-2016

DC's Legends of Tomorrow is the official title of the latest superhero spin-off. On it, a team of heroes will reluctantly partner up with (gasp!) villains to fight an even greater (and also, immortal) threat. The cast will includes Arthur Darvill, Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell and Victor Garber.

Cordon is a drama about a deadly virus that puts a major city into quarantine lockdown. The people left inside the quarantine zone fight for their lives and struggle to build a new society, while people on the outside search for a cure. (It sounds like a diseased version of Under the Dome, no?) Among the people stuck inside the cordoned-off area: An elementary teacher and her entire class, a pregnant 17-year-old, and, natch, the CDC researcher who calls for the quarantine in the first place. Stars include David Gyasi, Christina Moses, and Chris Wood.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriendis about a woman who has it all -- except love, of course! Since life is meaningless for women who lack romantic entanglements, Rebecca Bunch (Rachel Bloom, who will also executive-produce) gives up her fancy law firm partnership and Manhattan apartment to move to West Covina, Calif. (Side note: Since the show is called Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, presumably a bad breakup initiates all the action. Whose crazy ex-girlfriend is she? We don't know! Yet! Ladies be crazy!)
