Get your calendars ready! The CW just announced their upcoming TV season, but some major changes are coming.
While fans are probably already counting down the days until October, when most CW shows will make their big return to the small screen, the network announced to press that fan favorite series's like Riverdale, Legacies, and All American won't be returning until January 2021. Production on most of their shows for their past seasons shut down early due to the coronavirus pandemic before they finished their seasons, leaving many of them with cliffhangers.
Supernatural, which was in the middle of its last season, will be one of the few shows coming back in the fall with brand new episodes. The show will end its historic 15 season run with the last seven episodes airing on Thursday nights. Production on the series stopped after 18 of the 20 episodes commissioned were filmed.
Instead of its usual lineup for the fall, The CW will air several shows that have been limited to streaming services. Swamp Thing, which starred Teen Wolf's Crystal Reed, will be airing for the first time. The series was cancelled after just one season on DC Universe due to budget issues. The Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley and The Originals' Danielle Campbell will be returning to The CW when their recently cancelled show, Tell Me a Story, airs. The show originally streamed on CBS All Access, but was cancelled after two seasons.
New TV shows like Walker, Superman & Lois, Kung Fu, and The Republic of Sarah are also being put on hold until January. Green Arrow and the Canaries and the untitled The 100 prequel series have not been picked up yet, while Katy Keene's second season are still up in the air.
