CW 2017 Fall Schedule Announced Today

Share

After several seasons on Wednesdays, Arrow relocates and reunites with Supernatural, which "was a no-brainer move" for Pedowitz, who realized that the long-running shows could withstand the increasingly tough Thursday-night competition.

Not returning next season: The Vampire Diaries, Reign, Frequency and No Tomorrow.

Supergirl keeps her 8/9C spot on the schedule - no change there, but she has a new neighbor.

Also for fall is the military drama "Valor", following the only two known survivors of "an elite unit of U.S. Army helicopter pilots called the Shadow Raiders" whose secret mission to Somalia "goes terribly awry".

Tuesdays and Thursdays in the fall will be dominated by such series.

The CW presented its fall schedule, with a couple new series, including its Dynasty remake, alongside veteran shows.

Supergirl returns with "Nevertheless, She Persisted" on May 22nd at 8pm, The Flash returns with "Finish Line" on May 23rd at 8pm, Arrow returns with "Lian Yu" on May 24th at 8pm, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow returns in the Fall. In the last three years for the crossovers, that started with just The Flash and Arrow, they have usually aired in the first week of December before their respective season finales.

THURSDAY: Supernatural and ArrowArrow has to become something else: A Thursday night series.

Arrow moves to Thursdays at 9/10C.

The CW's 2017-17 prime-time schedule sees Riverdale moving to a new night on Wednesdays, paired with the new Dynasty reboot.

At midseason, the CW has the one-hour comedy "Life Sentence", with Lucy Hale as a cancer survivor, and a DC Comics adaptation, "Black Lightning", starring Cress Williams.

"We are very fond of the show", said Pedowitz, noting that "Jane the Virgin" performs especially well in delayed and digital viewing, arguably making its place on the schedule less critical.

The CW will launch its 2017-18 season in October, with premiere dates to be announced later.
