If you weren’t excited about Arrow and Beauty and the Beast already, here’s something that might do the trick.

When the stars of the two shows stopped by EW HQ recently, it became clear that these series will be more than just the newest inductees to the CW’s parade of pretty. Stephen Amell spoke a bit about what comic book fans can expect from Arrow, the network’s gritty take on the Green Arrow story. And CW fave Kristin Kreuk and co-star Jay Ryan chatted about their roles in B&B, specifically the interesting twist on “beast” Vincent’s backstory. (Read more from their convo in Spoiler Room Early Buzz edition.)

The show’s don’t premiere until October, but the time to get pumped is now.
