The CW Announces Season Finale Dates


The CW Announces Its 2014 Season Finale Dates


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.

I find it quite funny to read so many angry and nasty comments about many of the shows. I believe you American's are quite keen on your rights? well please make good use of those rights and turn to another channel for programming you might enjoy a little more - and perhaps won't raise your blood pressure quite so much. Surely the fact that everyone is a little different than everyone else is what makes the world an interesting place. It goes without saying that what is loved by one, is hated by another. Get over it and switch channels. Oh...and PLEASE learn the different meaning and use of the words OF and OFF.

Season 10 of Supernatural will not be the last, the cast and crew will go beyond it if they keep getting picked up by the network... Just thought you needed that fact straight.

Take that rumor crap and flush it! Supernatural will run as long as the fans are there to watch it and the bids are there to make it! It's the best thing on TV period! They silk be around a long time to come. So get used to it! Sam and Dean for ever!

Lemmus , Idiot! I enjoy Scifi. Sadly crap like this ruins any potential decency. By the way CW is full of shows which do NOT feature teens, Arrow, Supernatural just of the top of my head. Even teen oriented Smallville was better written. Now be a good Hipster and get off Moms tablet. You know she hates walking down to the basement to retrieve it. You may think it's your man cave, but to her it's the laundry room.

If you don't like shows about "angsty teens", you probably shouldn't be watching CW. I'm not saying that these sorts of shows can't be really annoying, especially to any audience over 19, I'm just pointing out that different channels attract different audiences. Just as HBO is happy being the channel known for sex, swearing, and violence, and doesn't try making kiddie programming just to expand their market share, the CW is known for making shows aimed at an adolescent and primarily female demographic.

The CW is not a genre channel (like SyFy), they're a demographic driven channel. They'll happily play shows from a wide variety of genres, including science fiction, fantasy, mystery, super-hero, horror, or real-world drama so long as those shows include content for their target audience. In other words, all that melodramitic romance and teen drama is the POINT of these shows. If you're not part of that audience, watch something on a different channel.

Anonymous , Star crossed is over the top. Everyone HATES the Aliens, where the hell are the Liberals? The Scifi aficionados? Gays and Blacks are accepted in the new world order but aliens hated like Jews in Nazi Germany. Aliens are just as moronic as the area they crashed, an area in Louisiana where NO ONE has any type of ACCENT! The ship is still there, not carted away to Area 51. Aliens still there not carted away to Area 51. I hoped their crap or sperm had the healing powers. maybe just a good teabagging to save the asian chick. Dumb show, poorly written. BUT it had the potential to be decent. For an outright steal of Alien Nation that is.

I think Star crossed is not all that but I still kinda enjoyed it for some weird ass sick reason.

Star Crossed sucked big time. Kiddie version of Alien nation with crappy facial discoloring. Why the hell does everything require multiracial populations? Asgard, Star Trek Vulcans and now Alien nation aliens. Hopefully the trend to everything adolescent and multiracial will end allowing for truly interesting work. Banshee ain't for kids, neither is True detective. Why assume the rest of the viewing world is interested in angsty teens?
