It got to an unavoidably late start, but The CW’s “fall” season is finally in full swing. Stuff that ordinarily would have premiered in September or October instead began running in January, and half the network’s shows haven’t even premiered their new seasons yet. You know what this means…we’re pushing into the summer.
We finally know when our beloved Legends of Tomorrow will finally come back to us: May 2, and it’s being given the prime slot of Sundays at 8! To make room Batwoman will be pushed back an hour, and Charmed will be shoved down into Fridays again (it actually received better ratings on Friday than it has so far on Sunday, go figure).
Riverdale is being replaced April 7 by a revival of the Carradine Kung Fu series, which we still know almost nothing about, except that there will be kung and maybe some fu. In The Dark, the show that has only one viewer (me), returns June 9 and The Republic of Sarah, the wildest premise CW has tried in a while, premieres June 14 (it’s about a group of people who attempt to start their own independent nation in the middle of the US).
There is one premiere that isn’t mentioned here, yet was confirmed last night during the premiere of Superman and Lois: Stargirl will begin airing its second season sometime this summer. As for the final season of Supergirl...uh, your guess is as good as ours.
