CW Pilot Orders include The Lost Boys! Plus Riverdale & Jane Spinnoffs! And Nancy Drew [Deadline]

As usual, the CW made the bulk of its pilot pickups in one fell swoop, and the network is betting heavily on IP this year. It greenlighted four pilots tonight — all based on well known titles — two spinoffs of existing CW series, Riverdale and Jane the Virgin, a Nancy Drew drama and The Lost Boys reboot. The join the recently greenlighted Batwoman pilot starring Ruby Rose.  


So much awesomeness could be coming to CW. While I’m not sure what The Lost Boys is without the Coreys and Kiefer Sutherland leading the fang-gang, but as someone who literally watched The Lost Boys everyday after middle school until the tape broke, I’m here for it. Especially since Rob Thomas is involved.

Add that to the excitement for a musical driven Katy Keene spinoff from Riverdale AND a new Nancy Drew series, I think I just had kittens!
