The CW has announced premiere dates for its new season next January, including Javicia Leslie’s debut as “Batwoman” and the premiere of new series “Superman & Lois” and “Walker.”

Unlike the other broadcasters, The CW pre-emotively delayed the start of its 2020-21 season until January in order to give to give its shows more time to film amid COVID-19 challenges. The CW’s official start to its season will be the weekend of Jan. 8-10. The network has also acquired the Canadian drama “Trickster” which will air on Tuesdays beginning Jan. 12.

“Batwoman” will be the first of the network’s regular scripted series to return on Jan. 17, followed by “All American,” “Riverdale” and “Nancy Drew” and “Legacies” that week as well. Jared Padalecki’s “Walker, Texas Ranger” reboot premieres Thursday, Jan. 21 ahead of “Legacies.”
