It’s not like we were short on stuff to watch this summer (hello, UnREAL, nice to see you, Mr. Robot), but when it comes to TV there’s no time like the fall. Along with the annual onslaught of new shows competing for our attention, we’re ready to welcome a bunch of old favorites back to our DVRs. After the jump, some of the fall 2015 returning shows we’re most excited for. Read More »

The lowest-profile DC comics series on The CW seems to be iZombie, but that doesn’t exactly mean the show is struggling. It just doesn’t get the attention of The Flash or Arrow.
That said, iZombie had a healthy audience in its first season thanks in part to a combination of good casting and perfectly-pitched scripts. The series really inspired a solid core fanbase as it also garnered critical acclaim, with praise particularly directed at the show’s comic wit. The series returns for a second season in early October, and the new iZombie S2 trailer is here. Read More »

Leave it to The CW to make a TV show about a zombie that you’d brag to your friends about dating. Based on the DC Comic of the same name, iZombie is a show about a young woman named Liv (get it?), who is holding up pretty well despite being dead. Liv works with dead bodies, and which probably helps out when she gets hungry and needs to eat some brains. And her show, based on the first iZombie trailer, looks fairly entertaining, if also pretty familiar.
iZombie is the DC Comics show (well, actually drawn from a Vertigo Comics title — that imprint being a subset of DC) which has pulled less attention than other shows like Arrow and The Flash. That lesser attention is in part because this show draws on a more obscure book, and also because we hadn’t seen anything to indicate the show’s tone. Now we know: it’s like Veronica Mars, with a bit of a whiff of the undead. Which we might have guessed, given the creators (Rob Thomas wrote and directed the pilot) but it helps to see it in action. Check out the iZombie trailer below. Read More »

It’s that time of year when the TV networks clear the crap off their channel and fill it up with new crap. The hope, of course, is the new crap sticks around and gains an audience. While we don’t follow a lot of TV here on /Film, we do follow big comic book shows and three new DC Comics TV shows just got picked up. Two on The CW and another on NBC.
The first, and most obvious, is The Flash, the Arrow spinoff starring Grant Gustin as the iconic DC Comics speedster. Then there’s iZombie, Veronica Mars‘ creator Rob Thomas’s adaptation of the Vertigo comic. Then, over on NBC, Constantine, starring Matt Ryan as a supernatural detective, got picked up too. All three DC Comics TV shows are expected to air in the Fall. Read More »
