Here comes the drama on The CW! The network has officially picked up five new scripted series for the upcoming fall season, including the Sex & The City prequel, The Carrie Diaries.

It’s a varied list of shows, with everything from a medical drama, First Cut, to the superhero-themed series Arrow. We’ll also get a modern day Beauty and the Beast and mystery show, Cult.

According to Deadline, The CW is beefing up their lineup in order to give viewers more new programming and fewer reruns. Wait... so less of those brutal mid-season hiatuses? It’s definitely a plan we can get behind, especially if it means that we get to keep a few more of the series that are currently on!
