The smallest network, The CW, has released their primetime schedule for Fall 2018. For the first time in 10 years, The CW will be programming Sunday nights, giving the network two additional hour timeslots to play with. The network notes that they will have 12 hours of scripted programming this fall — more than ABC, FOX, or NBC.
Returning CW Fall shows are: Arrow, Black Lightning, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (final season), DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Dynasty, The Flash, Riverdale, Supergirl, and Supernatural.
New CW Fall shows are: All American, Charmed (a reboot), and Legacies.
Here are portions of the CW press release:
The CW’s new Sunday night kicks off the week with a one-two punch of empowered and powerful women, with SUPERGIRL soaring over to a new night (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT), followed by the magical all new CHARMED (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT), with new faces as the Charmed Ones, but the same heart and humor as the beloved original.
Mondays are action-packed, as DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW returns (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT), followed by ARROW shooting over to a new night (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT).
The CW’s highest-rated night remains the same next season, with THE FLASH back on Tuesday (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT) followed by the electrifying new hit BLACK LIGHTNING (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT).
Pop culture phenomenon RIVERDALE is back Wednesday 8:00-9:00pm ET/PT. And at 9:00-10:00pm ET/PT, new series ALL AMERICAN, based on the real life of NFL star Spencer Paysinger, 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.
The Winchester boys are back for their 14th season of SUPERNATURAL Thursday 8:00-9:00pm ET/PT, followed by the new series LEGACIES (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT).
