Fall TV season: Watch a sneak preview of Kevin Williamson's supernatural 'The Secret Circle' [Video]
The CW unveiled its fall schedule Thursday at its upfronts presentation in New York, announcing another supernatural-tinged drama, "The Secret Circle," based on the popular young-adult novels from "Vampire Diaries" writer L.J. Smith.
The mystery thriller, which centers on a coven of powerful witches, comes from "Vampire Diaries" creator Kevin Williamson and will air with that hit CW show on Thursday nights.
After a tragic accident leaves her an orphan, Cassie Blake (played by Britt Robertson) moves to a small harbor town in Washington where she finds out she's descended from witches and has magical powers. She and her new friends are the next-gen Secret Circle and they're headed for a showdown with some evil forces.
In addition to Williamson, executive producers are Andrew Miller, Leslie Morganstein ("The Vampire Diaries," "Gossip Girl") and Gina Girolamo. Stars include Natasha Henstridge, Thomas Dekker and Phoebe Tonkin.
