The CW has just announced its 2014 season finale dates, so be sure to set your DVRs and/or plan to be home accordingly.
First to end its run will be freshman drama 'The Tomorrow People.' The CW's revamp of the original British series of the same name moves to Mondays beginning March 17 (taking over 'Beauty and the Beast's soon-to-be-vacated timeslot), and will end its 22 episode inaugural season there on Monday, May 5. A second season has yet to be ordered, but it could still happen.
The following Monday, May 12, will see the season (and likely series, if we're being realistic) finale of the recently debuted 'Star-Crossed.' The series premiere two weeks ago drew only a 0.4, making it the lowest rated scripted series debut in network history. This past Monday did even worse, dropping to a 0.3. Eleven produced episodes remain to be aired.
The next night, Tuesday, May 13, marks the first season swan song of 'The Originals.' A spin-off of 'The Vampire Diaries' (a.k.a. the highest rated show on The CW), 'Originals' has done better than its network likely ever imagined, drawing ratings only a few tenths lower than its progenitor. As you might imagine, a full second season has already been granted.
On Wednesday, May 14, 'Arrow' will bring its sophomore run to a close. Regularly competing with 'Supernatural' and the aforementioned 'The Vampire Diaries' for the title of most watched CW show, 'Arrow' was easily the biggest freshman hit for the network since 'TVD's own premiere back in 2009, and has only increased its profile in season two. Not only has a third season already been ordered, the Barry Allen character will also get his own 'Flash' spin-off this fall.
Thursday, May 15 will play host to both the fifth season finale of 'The Vampire Diaries' and the first season finale of 'Reign.' 'Diaries' has (of course) already been picked up for Season 6, while 'Reign' managed to pull out a second season renewal by the skin of its teeth.
Embattled veteran program 'Hart of Dixie' ends its third season on Friday, May 16. The show moves to Fridays starting on March 21. A fourth season has yet to be ordered, but syndication concerns will likely drive The CW to give 'Hart' at least one more shot.
'Supernatural,' the longest tenured program on The CW and the only WB show still on the air, brings its ninth season to a close on Tuesday, May 20. Despite being so long-in-the-tooth, 'SPN' remains one of the highest rated dramas on The CW, and will return for a tenth (rumored to be final) season. It's spin-off, 'Supernatural: Tribes' debuts in the fall.
Wednesday, June 11 brings with it the end to midseason drama 'The 100.' If you're not familiar with 'The 100,' it's probably because the show doesn't premiere until March 19.
Lastly, the four-hour miniseries adaptation of the Kate Mosse novel 'Labyrinth,' starring John Hurt, Sebastian Stan, Jessica Brown-Findlay, Vanessa Kirby and Tom Felton, will debut on Thursday, May 22 at 8/7c and wrap on Friday, May 23 at 8/7c.
