The CW has released its list of returning and premiering shows for the spring/summer 2019 season, including ‘The 100’ season 6 one new addition and a few timeslot swaps.
First up is The 100 season 6, which premieres Tuesday, April 30 at 9 p.m., retaining its slot from season 5. em>Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow will be shifting to Monday nights.
Like the previous two seasons, The 100 season 6 will be 13 episodes long. This would theoretically put its season finale on July 23 (two days after San Diego Comic-Con), but it’s probably a high gamble to assume the sci-fi staple could go an entire season without a single break.
Although it seems like this hiatus has been (and continues to be) unusually long, the season 6 premiere date is actually just one week later than season 5, which premiered on April 24, 2018!
Perhaps the wait feels longer this year because we’ve had so little information about The 100 season 6, which is expected to take place on a brand new and mysterious planet. Production has been shrouded in almost complete secrecy, which means we have a lot of questions and very few answers. (We do know that main actor Bob Morley has been directing his first episode this week — very exciting!)
We also don’t yet have any details on a forthcoming trailer or other promotional material that might crop up in the months ahead. And, seeing as the new season is still about one third of a year (!) away, we might have to stay patient a while longer.
Returning for their final seasons in 2019 are Jane the Virgin on Wednesday, March 27 at 9 p.m., and iZombie on Thursday, May 2 at 8 p.m.
Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow are both moving to Mondays, airing back-to-back at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. respectively. Legends starts its new season on April 1, with Arrow following on April 15.
Finally we’ve got new dramedy In the Dark, set to premiere Thursday, April 4 at 9 p.m. Coming from Corinne Kingsbury, the freshman CW show follows a “flawed and irreverent” blind woman who sets out with her dog Pretzel to solve the murder of her drug-dealing friend.
The CW also has some new and returning series later this month including Carina MacKenzie’s Roswell reimagining on Tuesday, January 15 (its finale airs April 23) and Black Lightning on Monday, January 21.
