The CW Announces Midseason Schedule and Premiere Dates
PRESS RELEASE TEXT THE CW NETWORK ANNOUNCES JANUARY PREMIERES AND SCHEDULING MOVES
The Series Premiere of DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and the Return of the Critically-Acclaimed THE 100 Debut on Thursday, January 21
THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and THE ORIGINALS
Move to Fridays Beginning on January 29
November 23, 2015 (Burbank, CA) - The CW announced its new January 2016 schedule today, including the series debut of new drama DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and the season three premiere of THE 100, plus THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and THE ORIGINALS take over Friday night.
On Thursday January 21, The CW kicks off a new night of action and adventure with the highly-anticipated series premiere of DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT)followed by the return of the critically-acclaimed post-apocalyptic drama THE 100 (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT). In DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, when heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only the planet is at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?
DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW stars Victor Garber (“The Flash,” “Alias”), Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” “Superman Returns”), Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”), Caity Lotz (“Arrow”), Ciara Renee (“Pippin”), and Franz Drameh (“Edge of Tomorrow”), with Dominic Purcell (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”) and Wentworth Miller (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”). Based on the characters from DC Comics, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”), Marc Guggenheim (“Arrow,” “Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”), Phil Klemmer (“The Tomorrow People,” “Chuck”), Chris Fedak (“Forever,” “Chuck”), and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash”).
For two seasons, the refugees of THE 100 sent to Earth have been at war. First with themselves, then with the Grounders, and finally with Mount Weather. Many have lost their lives along the way. All have lost their innocence. They have learned the hard way that in the fight for survival, there are no heroes and no villains. There is only the living and the dead. But now the war is over. The battle against Mount Weather has been won. The prisoners have returned home to a world seemingly at peace, but can they find peace within themselves after what they had to do to escape? And is there more to life than just surviving? Unfortunately, their newfound sense of normalcy will be short-lived, and their lives will be changed forever, as threats both old and new test their loyalties, push them past their limits, and make them question what it truly means to be human. First, they fought to survive. Then, they fought for their friends. Now, they will fight for the human race. Based on the book series by Kass Morgan, THE 100 is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, with executive producers Jason Rothenberg and Leslie Morgenstein (“The Vampire Diaries”).
Starting January 29, The Salvatore brothers and the First Family of vampires head to Friday nights to kick off the weekend with two hours of high-stakes drama, with THE VAMPIRE DIARIES (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT) followed by THE ORIGINALS (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT). This season, both THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and THE ORIGINALS are among the most heavily time-shifted series on television; both shows more than triple their audiences when viewing beyond the night of air is tallied, across DVR, digital, and VOD platforms.
REIGN will have its winter finale on Friday, January 22 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT) and return later in the season, night and time to be announced.
Following are The CW’s January 2016 premieres and scheduling moves:
THURSDAY, JANUARY 21
8:00-9:00pm DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW (Series Premiere)
iZombie – April 12 Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – April 18 The Vampire Diaries – May 13 Jane the Virgin – May 16 DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – May 19 The 100 – May 19 The Originals – May 20 The Flash – May 24 Arrow – May 25 Supernatural – May 25
As previously announced, Reign will resume its third season on Monday, April 25 at 8/7c, the outbreak drama Containment is released Tuesday, April 19 at 9 pm and Beauty and the Beast kicks off its final run Thursday, June 2 at 9 pm.
CW Renews 11 Series, Including 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,' 'Vampire Diaries,' Full DC Lineup
Also set to return are 'iZombie,' 'Jane the Virgin,' 'The Originals,' 'Reign,' 'Supernatural' and 'The 100' as midseason debut 'Containment' awaits its verdict.
The CW is sticking with what works: It's entire scripted lineup.
The younger-skewing network has handed out early renewals for 11 of its series. They are: Arrow (season five), Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (season two), Legends of Tomorrow (season two), The Flash (season three), iZombie (season three), Jane the Virgin (season three), The Originals (season four), Reign (season four), Supernatural (season 12), The Vampire Diaries (season eight) and The 100 (season four).
That is all 10 of the series currently on the air and Reign, which returns next month. The network is not revealing episode counts — or when each of the series would be slated as its president Mark Pedowitz remains committed to a year-round schedule that includes making a bolder push with originals in the typically lower-rated summer period.
"The CW has become home to some of the most critically acclaimed shows on broadcast television, with a wide array of fantastic scripted series across the week, ranging from musical comedy, to superhero action, to gritty sci-fi dramas,” Pedowitz said in making the announcement Friday. "As we continue to further our strategy of more year-round original programming, picking up these 11 series for the 2016-2017 season puts us in a great position of having proven, high-quality shows to launch in the fall as well as midseason and summer of 2017."
Still to be determined is the fate of Julie Plec's midseason drama Containment, which premieres in April.
The renewals come as The CW has found stability in programming with DC Comics fare including midseason debut Legends — likely an anthology with different castmembers floating in and out from both The Flash and Arrow. The latter pair have helped bring stability to the 8 p.m. hour and open both Tuesdays and Wednesdays. With the three pickups, exec producer Greg Berlanti will have at least four shows on the 2016-17 schedule including NBC's already renewed Blindspot. (His NBC sophomore Mysteries of Laura and CBS freshman Supergirl are awaiting news of their fates, though the latter is expected to return.) The Flash, meanwhile, ranks as the most-watched series in the network's history. The network is up 56 percent in total viewers and 30 percent among the coveted adults 18-49 demographic. The DC fare has also helped The CW broaden out its viewership with women accounting for 52 percent and men 48 percent. That's a big change vs. 2011 when the network skewed 70 percent female. Flash (2.3 million), Legends (1.7 million) and Arrow (1.6 million) rank as the network's top three series among adults under 50 when factoring in seven days of delayed viewing.
The Vampire Diaries — whose renewal was said to hinge on star Ian Somerhalder returning — and spinoff The Originals were moved to a Friday block where the pairing has helped improve the network's year-over-year draw.
For their part, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin may lack ratings but make up for it with critical appeal. The Monday dramedies have netted stars Rachel Bloom and Gina Rodriguez back-to-back Golden Globes. While Crazy may be broadcast television's lowest-rated show, Pedowitz — in a rare move for a broadcaster — has preached patience with the series and remains committed to allowing both shows time to find a larger audience.
The 100, meanwhile, has become a critical favorite. Paired with Legends on Thursdays, it has helped the network grow 56 percent in total viewers and 30 percent among adults under 50 in the first quarter year-over-year.
While the CW's lineup may leave little room for new series, insiders say the network will follow a similar pickup strategy from the 2015-16 season when it added three new series (including two for midseason). This season, the network picked up six pilots — including Berlanti's Archie Comics take Riverdale, a sci-fi entry from Vampire Diaries' Kevin Williamson and another hourlong dramedy (No Tomorrow) from Jane the Virgin producers. That's up two year-over-year.
The pickups come as The CW has already said farewell to summer staple America's Next Top Model and has the final season of Beauty and the Beast due in June. That opens up the summer to be a home for more scripted (and potentially unscripted) fare, further justifying the network's decision to renew effectively its entire scripted lineup.
The CW joins ABC, Fox and NBC in handing out early renewals for its series. ABC recently renewed 15 series under new network president Channing Dungey, while NBC is returning all of its Dick Wolf series as well as The Blacklist and Blindspot; Fox, meanwhile, has already announced the final season for Bones and granted early pickups to Empire, Bob's Burgers, The Simpsons and Scream Queens. CBS, which has yet to renew the bulk of its lineup, recently picked up NCIS and has comedyBig Bang Theory set for its 10th season. Keep up with all the broadcast renewals and new series orders with THR's handy guide.

CW Boss Defends Benching Originals, Touts Next Fall's 'Biggest Ever' Superhero Crossover Event
The Originals failed to secure a spot on The CW’s fall schedule, but there’s no need administer last rites to the Vampire Diaries spinoff.
In a conference call on Thursday morning, network president Mark Pedowitz spoke of his decision to hold the show until midseason, telling reporters, “We have a very strong schedule. We still believe quite a bit in The Originals. We only have 10 hours, so we made a choice to [hold it] to further boost our schedule at midseason.”
Pedowitz also shot down speculation that Vampire Diaries upcoming eighth season would be its last. “No decision has been made one way or the other,” he maintained, before adding, “My dream is it isn’t [the final season].
Meanwhile, with Supergirl joining The CW’s already DC-packed stable that includes Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, Pedowitz promised the network’s annual superhero crossover event will be “the biggest one ever.” The exec also remarked that the ex-CBS drama always “should have been” on The CW.
Regarding buzz that Calista Flockhart’s role may be reduced in Season 2 in light of Supergirl‘s move from Los Angeles to Vancouver, Pedowitz said that there are “ongoing discussions” with the actress, adding, “We are thrilled she wants to continue with the show and we’re happy to have her in whatever capacity.”

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I was a huge fan of the movie with Jim Caviezel and I don't know how they're going to make this last for more than one season. They should've picked up Transylvania!!!

I don't know wednesday , looks like a possibility! I'm surprised about The Originals though, 'cause from what others said it was a good season. Low ratings?
It looks like it might be cute so I'll at least give it a shot! I'm surprised and sad about The Originals too! It has been awesome this season especially since Kol has been back! I'm assuming it has to do with the ratings which I don't think it deserved at all!
Ruby I can't believe we have to wait till January either especially after that finale!!!
