Now Liz has to keep this secret from everyone she knows, including her old high school boyfriend, Dr. Kyle Valenti (Trevino), and her best friend, Maria De Luca (Hemmens). Meanwhile, the politics of hatred, fear, and division threaten to expose them all and risk everyone’s lives.

“As we begin to plan for the 2019-2020 season, we’re thrilled to have this roster of 14 exceptionally creative and distinctive series, including all five first year shows, as the foundation on which to continue to build the multiplatform future of The CW,” said Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW. “One of our key long-term goals has been to continually add more original programming all year round, especially in midseason and summer, and with these returning shows and the new series we’ll order as we get closer to the May upfront, next season on The CW is shaping up to be our most robust year round schedule yet.”
