The CW Cancels 'Carrie Diaries,' 'Tomorrow People,' & 'Star-Crossed,' Picks Up 'The Flash' & 'iZombie

Good news – we have a slew of brand new shows coming to us this fall! Bad news is The CW just canceled three of our favorites!

The network has chosen not to renew The Tomorrow People, The Carrie Diaries, or Star-Crossed.

As for which shows will be introduced, the Arrow spin-off The Flash, Rob ThomasiZombie, apocalyptic drama The Messengers, and dramedy Jane the Virgin have all been given the green light. The highly-anticipated Supernatural spin-off Bloodlines was passed on.

Meanwhile, fan favorites Beauty and the Beast and Hart of Dixie have each been picked up for another season.

TELL JJJ: What do you think about The CW renewals and cancellations this year?

THE FLASH: Based upon characters published by DC Comics. Through a freak accident, scientist Barry Allen is given the power of super speed that transforms him into the Fastest Man Alive. Cast: Grant Gustin (Barry Allen); Jesse L. Martin (Det. West); Tom Cavanaugh (Harrison Wells).

Based on the characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, and published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint. Cast: Rose McIver (Liv).

This mean Austin goes back to living off Vanessa Hudgens and only being relevant in paparazzi pictures where he’s sucking face with her?

CW just lost a viewer for canceling Star Crossed. I am sure it will not matter to them but if I could get enough viewers to boycott CW for not giving such a great show a chance, I would. Tired of the execs only thinking about the bottom dollar and not the fans.

First of all, with the way The Carrie Diaries ended, Austin probably wouldn’t have been involved in a third season anyway. Second, he filmed a movie back in January/February and is doing a play at the end of the month. He’s hardly unemployed.

Why the CW Always renew the wrong shows??

I’m very pleased to hear that the CW did NOT go forward with that horrible spin-off of Supernatural. Beauty and the Beast should have been cancelled as the storyline is a complete insult to the original 80′s series with Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton.

Yaaaa! for Beauty and the Beast…best decision ….so grateful.
Nielson can’t accurately predict how good and popular a show is…most younger generation viewers watch online. Glad CW knows that “times are changing”…

The CW is a joke for canceling Star Crossed! It clearly has
More fans then they think if we’re taking the time to post stuff about it!! Please, renew Star Crossed!!! Your ratings won’t be the only thing dropping if you don’t!! They’ve screwed themselves and made the worst mistake of their careers!! Give Star Crossed another chance by just moving it to a different day!!! Please, we know you’ll never regret it!! I know I’m not the only Stargazer here so just do us all a HUGE favor and renew Star Crossed for another Season!!!! PLEASE!
