Set Your DVRs As The CW Announces The Fall Premier Dates For All Of Its Shows


Though the majority of TV shows just went on hiatus– ‘Supergirl’‘s Season Three finale aired on Monday night– The CW has marked its calendar and you probably should too, if you want to catch the fall premiers of returning favorites and the premiers of new shows.  The CW is adding three new additions this year, football drama ‘All American’, ‘Vampire Diaries’/’The Originals’ spinoff ‘Legacies’ and witchy reboot ‘Charmed’.

Because The CW’s audience tends to skew younger, it makes sense that the network plans to kick things off with a two night special event, the ‘iHeartMusic Festival’ which will air on Sunday, October 7, and Monday, October 8, from 8pm-10pm EST.

When will your favorites be back?  Here is The CW’s full fall premiere schedule.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 9
8:00-9:00pm THE FLASH (Season Premiere)
9:00-10:00pm BLACK LIGHTNING (Season Premiere)

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10
8:00-9:00pm RIVERDALE (Season Premiere)
9:00-10:00pm ALL AMERICAN (Series Premiere)

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11
8:00-9:00pm SUPERNATURAL (Season Premiere)
9:00-10:00pm ALL AMERICAN (Encore of Premiere)

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12
8:00-9:00pm DYNASTY (Season Premiere)
9:00-10:00pm CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND (Season Premiere)

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 14
8:00-9:00pm SUPERGIRL (Season Premiere)
9:00-10:00pm CHARMED (Series Premiere)

MONDAY, OCTOBER 15
8:00-9:00pm  ARROW (Season Premiere)

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18
8:00-9:00pm SUPERNATURAL (Original Episode)
9:00-10:00pm CHARMED (Encore of Premiere)

MONDAY, OCTOBER 22
8:00-9:00pm ARROW (Original Episode)
9:00-10:00pm DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW (Season Premiere)

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25
8:00-9:00pm SUPERNATURAL (Original Episode)
9:00-10:00pm LEGACIES (Series Premiere)

As you can see, the new episodes are being staggered so that they don’t all hit during the same week.  That allows The CW to give a little extra care to its new shows, by airing encore presentations of their first episodes in time slots that will later be taken over by other shows.

One of the biggest shifts is that ‘Supergirl’ is moving over to Sunday nights.

The CW also ordered another reboot, ‘Roswell, New Mexico’ but that won’t premier until midseason.

Let the countdown begin!

Jason Motes

Jason’s earliest memory is of watching ‘Batman,’ followed shortly by a memory of playing Batman & Robin with a friend, which entailed running outside in just their underwear and towels as capes. When adults told them they couldn’t run around outside in their underwear, both boys promptly whipped theirs off and ran around in just capes. Jason’s father gamely agreed to read him comic books as bedtime stories instead of ‘Snow White.’ (Super Friends being his favorite.) Jason saw all of the original Star Wars movies (and Indiana Jones and Superman and Star Trek…) in the theaters. Yes, he is old. And grew up in the most GEEKTASTIC decade ever, the 80s, devouring a steady diet of GI Joe, Transformers, Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power and (best of all) Jem! (It totally counts as sci fi! They had a sentient computer that projected holograms!) Jason has studied literature, journalism, film history and has a degree in creative writing (and a minor in psychology) from the University of South Alabama. He has worked as a technical writer and proofreader. These days, most of his creative energy goes into his blog and writing for this site! He lives with the cutest puppies ever.
