It’s that time of year again, folks! The broadcast networks are dropping their midseason schedules. We have the premieres and the returns. Of course, those of us who have no life need to know when are faves are coming back after the hiatus.
Today, the CW dropped its midseason schedule. We see a couple of interesting things going on. Jane the Virgin will return for its final season on Wednesdays at 9/8c, following All-American’s 16-episode first season. New series In the Dark will take over the Thursday 9/8c slot once Legacies finishes up its run. Roswell, New Mexico will handle things at Tuesday 9/8c.
iZombie will return later in the spring for its final season along with The 100 for season six.
It looks like Legends of Tomorrow will be force to wait it out a bit longer. Black Lightning will take over its timeslot on Monday at 9/8c. Legends and Supergirl did a similar thing last year, so it’s not a huge shock to see.
According to Arrrowverse superproducer, Marc Guggenheim the move made sense.
As he told Comicbook.com, “I think, you know, the other thing that the CW feels, I think, correctly is all the shows now, they’ve sort of, a proven that the audience follows the shows. Arrow’s ratings are insanely stable despite both a night change and a time change. Legends has bounced around. This I think will be our third move across the schedule and our ratings remain very consistent.”
He continued, “All the shows have very loyal audiences and you know how to find the shows, so I think the sense is over at the CW is that they can make these moves and it doesn’t carry with it the risks that other shows on other networks typically have to bite their nails, you know, white-knuckle themselves through as they make these scheduling changes.”
Despite the dip to the show’s live-viewings, it does well on DVR and on the CW Seed. This change probably has to do with a lot more winners in the CW’s 2018-2019 freshman class than in previous years.
Either way, the new schedule looks pretty good to us. We don’t have confirmed dates for the premieres of In the Dark, Jane the Virgin, Legends of Tomorrow, iZombie, and The 100. So keep tuned.
