This week have been full of television announcements as the various networks have been unveiling their fall lineups and schedule at the different upfronts for each network.

With the rest of the big networks already out of the way, The CW was up next and revealed some changes in their fall schedule.

Most of The CW's 2016 lineup got renewed outside of the previosuly announced as ending The Vampire Diaries and Reign, as well as the two freshman shows No Tomorrow and Frequency.

We knew that this meant most of the lineup would be familiar shows and 80% of them are in fact, with the following schedule breakdown.


8 pm Supergirl

9 pm Valor


8 pm The Flash

9 pm DC's Legends of Tomorrow


8 pm Riverdale

9 pm Dynasty


8 pm Supernatural

9 pm Arrow


8 pm Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

9 pm Jane the Virgin

Supergirl remains in its same spot on Monday at 8:00 pm, with newcomer Valor taking the 9:00 pm.

Tuesdays remain the same as they did in early 2017 when Legends of Tomorrow was still airing, with The Flash at 8:00 pm and Legends of Tomorrow at 9:00 pm.

Wednesday is getting revamped entirely as Riverdale, which was just a midseason replacement this season, will be airing in the fall in the 8:00 pm slot, which will be followed by the new reboot of Dynasty at 9:00 pm.

Thursday is getting a bit of a shift, as Supernatural moves from its 9:00 pm timeslot this year to start off the night at 8:00, while Arrow moves from Wednesday to Thursday while taking the 9:00 pm timeslot.

Friday is looking to recreate the Monday lineup from 2015 with Crazy Ex-Girlfriend airing at 8:00, followed by Jane the Virgin at 9:00 pm.

Missing from the lineup are three midseason shows from this year in iZombie, The 100, and The Originals, which will fill that same role next season as well.

The latest addition to The CW's DC lineup, even though it's stated to not be connected to the other shows, is Black Lightning and it will be coming in midseason as well, along with the other new show Death Sentence.
