rob knepper alona tal cult 'Cult' to premiere Feb. 19 on The CWThe CW has finally announced the premiere date for “Cult”: Feb. 19, 2013.

The creepy, show-within-a-show suspense thriller will replace Emily Owens, M.D. , in the Tuesday 9 p.m. time slot. The CW recently announced that the freshman medical dramedy starring Mamie Gummer would end after its 13th episode.

“Cult” stars Matt Davis (“The Vampire Diaries”) as Jeff Sefton, a reporter investigating the mysterious disappearance of his brother, one of many obsessive fans of the interactive TV series “Cult.” It’s very dark and very meta, with many tongue-in-cheek references to the, um, devoted fans of other CW series. “Cult’s” fans, however, take their devotion to deadly extremes.

Sefton partners up with the show’s research assistant, Skye Yarrow (Jessica Lucas), to delve into the dark underworld of “Cult.” Also starring are Robert Knepper (“Prison Break”) as fictional cult leader Billy Grimm/actor Roger Reeves and Alona Tal (“Supernatural”) as fictional LAPD detective and former cult member Kelly Collins/actress Marti.

“Cult” debuts Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 9 p.m. on The CW. Will you be watching?
