There are few surprises on the CW's upfront schedule, besides virgins. It's a good time for the network's comic-book-heavy prime-time lineup: Arrow will be joined by spinoff The Flash in the fall; and the 100, Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast will all be back, though Beauty doesn't get a slot until midseason. And of course, Jane the Virgin, which the network announced for Monday nights at 9, potentially as counterprogramming to CBS's new drama Scorpion and and Fox's creepy success Sleepy Hollow, but there's still NBC's perennial The Voice and Dancing With the Stars on ABC to contend with.
Offbeat help-me-I'm-undead show iZombie (based, like Flash and Arrow, on the DC Comics property, though iZombie hails from DC's "grown-up" line, Vertigo) will also premiere during the second half of the season.
