The CW fall schedule is here! Find out when to set your DVR for Supergirl, Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, Jane the Virgin and more.
The CW announced its fall lineup at the Upfronts this morning, and, perhaps most importantly, we’ve got a timeslot for Supergirl… it’s the same as it used to be!
The former CBS series recently found a new home on The CW, joining its sister-DC comics series. Interestingly, The CW has clearly determined that it doesn’t need a lead-in from any of them; instead, the network has paired Supergirl with fellow female-skewered drama Jane the Virgin on Monday nights.
This also leaves the DC dramas on separate nights. The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow will air at 8 p.m. on consecutive nights, and established shows The Flash and Arrow both lead in a brand new series: No Tomorrow (not to be confused with Legends) and Frequency, respectively.
Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend have all been shuffled, with one surprising omission.
Check out the full fall schedule below, via USA Today:
9:00: Jane the Virgin
8:00: The Flash
9:00: No Tomorrow
8:00: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow
8:00: The Vampire Diaries
9:00: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Significantly, the need to introduce new shows has led The CW to bench The Originals — throwing it out of sync with its parent show The Vampire Diaries for the first time ever.
But don’t be too worried, The Originals fans. Via KSiteTV, Mark Pedowitz assures audiences, “We still really believe” in the series:

The 100, iZombie and Reign are all on hold, presumably for spring 2017. Our final new series Archie comics series Riverdale is expected in January/February 2017.
What can we expect from ‘No Tomorrow’ and ‘Frequency’?
The two new CW dramas joining us this fall are No Tomorrow and Frequency.
The former is romantic drama about a girl named Evie, who meets an ‘Apocalyst’ — a man who believes the world is gonna end, so he sets out to complete the ultimate bucket list:
Evie Callahan (Tori Anderson), a risk-averse quality-control assessor, appreciates order. Whenever she’s making a list, “make a list” is both the first thing on it and the first thing crossed off. Such a regimented life has its drawbacks. Her on-again/off-again romance with the sweet, but soft-spoken Timothy (Jesse Rath) has sputtered out. Her career has stalled. Her boss, Deirdre (Amy Pietz), a petty tyrant with breath that could kill a plant, laughs off her ambitions. Then Evie meets charming, free-spirited Xavier Holliday (Joshua Sasse), and the attraction is immediate and electric. He brings a jolt of joyful, rollicking romance into her life. Xavier encourages Evie to carpe that diem, because it’s more fun that way and because, well, the apocalypse is, you know, nigh. He believes humankind has a mere eight months and twelve days until a runaway asteroid smacks us all into stardust. That’s why he made an Apocalyst – a tally of every last thing he wants to do before the world goes kaput. So with the help of her friends – Hank (Jonathan Langdon), a diehard conspiracy theorist, and Kareema (Sarayu Blue), a droll nihilist – Evie must decide whether Xavier is certifiable and whether that even matters, if being with him means living her life more fully. Based on the International Emmy-nominated Brazilian format from Grupo Globo, NO TOMORROW is a romantic comedy with the ultimate ticking clock. NO TOMORROW is from CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television in association with Electus, with executive producers Corinne Brinkerhoff (“American Gothic,” “Jane The Virgin,” “The Good Wife”), Maggie Friedman (“Witches of East End”) and Ben Silverman (“Jane The Virgin,” “The Office”).”
Meanwhile, Frequency is one of several time travel series coming to American TV in 2016:
“Detective Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) has always wanted to prove that she is nothing like her father. In 1996, when Raimy was eight years old, NYPD Officer Frank Sullivan (Riley Smith) left Raimy and her mother, Julie (Devin Kelley), behind when he went deep undercover, got corrupted, and got himself killed. Or so the story has always gone. Few people knew about the secret undercover sting operation Frank was really charged with, led by Stan Moreno (Anthony Ruivivar), who has now risen to Deputy Chief of Police. Frank’s former partner, Lieutenant Satch Reyna (Mekhi Phifer), is now Raimy’s mentor and friend, and he has urged her to let go of the hurt and anger she still feels about Frank’s disappearance and death, but the old pain still lingers. Raimy can barely bring herself to discuss Frank, even with her devoted boyfriend, Daniel (Daniel Bonjour), or her childhood friend, Gordo (Lenny Jacobson). Now, twenty years later, Raimy is stunned when a voice suddenly crackles through her father’s old, long-broken ham radio – it’s Frank, somehow transmitting over the airwaves and through the decades from 1996. They’re both shocked and confused, but Raimy shakes Frank to the core when she warns him that the secret sting he is undertaking will lead to his death. Armed with that knowledge, Frank survives the attempt on his life. But changing history has dramatically affected Raimy’s life in the present – and there have been tragic consequences. Separated by twenty years, father and daughter have reunited on a frequency only they can hear, but can they rewrite the story of their lives without risking everyone they love? FREQUENCY is from Warner Bros. Television in association with Lin Pictures, with executive producers Jeremy Carver (“Supernatural”), Toby Emmerich (“The Notebook” feature film), John Rickard (“Horrible Bosses”), Dan Lin (“The LEGO™ Movie,” “Sherlock Holmes”) and Jennifer Gwartz (“Veronica Mars”).”
