The CW Places Supergirl, Charmed on Newly Expanded Sunday Schedule

Expanding to a six-night schedule this fall, The CW has slated final seasons of Jane the Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and iZombie.

Mondays this fall see the return of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow at 8 p.m., followed by Arrow on a new night at 9 p.m.

The Tuesday schedule remains intact, with The Flash leading into Black Lightning.

Riverdale returns on Wednesdays at 8 p.m., leading into the freshman series All American, based on the real life of NFL star Spencer Paysinger. The all-new show tells the story of a high school football star from South Los Angeles, who is thrown into a new world of challenges and opportunities when he’s recruited by a coach (Taye Diggs) to play in Beverly Hills.

Supernatural is back Thursdays at 8 p.m., to be followed by newcomer Legacies at 9 p.m. Set in the world of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, Legacies is the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted.

Fridays see the return of Dynasty at 8 p.m., followed by the final season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend at 9 p.m.

The CW’s new Sunday lineup kicks off with Supergirl on a new night at 8 p.m. It will lead into the new Charmed, with fresh faces as the Charmed Ones, but the same heart and humor as the original.

The midseason roster includes In the Dark—about a hard-living, hard-drinking, disaffected twentysomething with a penchant for cigarettes and casual sex who is also blind—and Roswell, New Mexico—about a girl who returns to her tourist-trap hometown to care for her ailing father and reconnects with her teenage crush, who is an alien keeping his unearthly abilities hidden. The 100 returns midseason, as do iZombie and Jane the Virgin—both of which will see their final season.

Mark Pedowitz, the president of The CW, said: “It is such an exciting time at The CW. We are thriving, innovating, and now we’re expanding, adding Sunday nights to our primetime lineup this fall. Starting in October, we will have 12 hours of original scripted series on our schedule—more than any other broadcast network besides CBS.

“And we have five bold, brash new shows for 2018-19: in the fall, a new version of the beloved fan-favorite series Charmed; the inspiring drama All American; and Legacies, set in the world of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals; and for midseason, the unique new drama In the Dark; and the epic romance Roswell, New Mexico. The CW is bigger, and better than ever before, with more quality content and more ways for advertisers to connect with our valuable young audience, on every platform.”
