Five Dramas Coming from The CW

The CW announced five new dramas for its 2012-2013 schedule Thursday and unlike all the other broadcast networks that preceded them in the week of upfront presentations, no comedies. But The CW has never been big on comedies.

The additional shows require a little shuffling with that they’re returning, with “90210” moving to Mondays and “America’s Next Top Model” shifting to Fridays.

Next season will also be the final season for “Gossip Girl,” with the anticipated “Sex and the City” prequel “Carrie,” pictured right, taking its slot midseason.

New shows this fall includes “Emily Owens, M.D.” with Meryl Streep’s daughter Mamie gummer in the title role, playing alongside the other female doctor on the returning “Hart of Dixie” Tuesdays.

“Arrow” is an adaptation of the DC Comics hero Green Arrow, starring Stephen Amell. The Greg Berlanti co-production plays alongside the returning “Supernatural,” shifting to Wednesdays for its eighth season.

“Beauty and the Beast” is a police adaptation of the fairy tale starring Kristin Kreuk, that will follow the return of “The Vampire Diaries” on Thursdays.

In the midseason, AnnaSophia Robb plays the young Carrie Bradshaw in “The Carrie Diaries.”

And “Cult” looks at the interplay of a TV show with obsessive fans, that begins to affect what happens in the world. It stars Matt Davis and comes in part from Josh Schwartz.

Also returning to the schedule is “Nikita,” alongside “Top Model” on Fridays.

Not coming back are “Ringer” and “The Secret Circle” and “One Tree Hill,” which recently wrapped up its final season. Another show on its currens season’s schedule, “H8R,” was pulled after only a few episodes.
