Sat, May 19th 2018 12:55 pm
The CW Network presented its 2018-19 primetime schedule to advertisers, affiliates, and press at the New York City Center in New York City, with the Platinum-selling American rock band 30 Seconds to Mars opening the show with a performance of their new hit songs "Rescue Me" and "Walk on Water." Expanding to a six-night, Sunday-Friday schedule this fall, The CW will have 12 hours of original scripted series across the week in primetime this fall, more than ABC, NBC or FOX.
"It is such an exciting time at The CW. We are thriving, innovating, and now we're expanding, adding Sunday nights to our primetime lineup this fall. Starting in October, we will have 12 hours of original scripted series on our schedule - more than any other broadcast network besides CBS," said Mark Pedowitz, president, The CW.
"And we have five bold, brash new shows for 2018-19: in the fall, a new version of the beloved fan favorite series 'Charmed'; the inspiring drama 'All American'; and 'Legacies,' set in the world of 'The Vampire Diaries' and 'The Originals'; and for midseason, the unique new drama 'In The Dark'; and the epic romance 'Roswell, New Mexico.' The CW is bigger, and better than ever before, with more quality content and more ways for advertisers to connect with our valuable young audience, on every platform."
The CW's new Sunday night kicks off the week with a one-two punch of empowered and powerful women, with "Supergirl" soaring over to a new night (8-9 p.m. ET/PT), followed by the magical all new "Charmed" (9 p.m.), with new faces as the Charmed Ones, but the same heart and humor as the beloved original.
Mondays are action-packed, as "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" returns (8 p.m.), followed by "Arrow" shooting over to a new night (9 p.m.).
The CW's highest-rated night remains the same next season, with "The Flash" back on Tuesday (8 p.m.) followed by the electrifying new hit "Black Lightning" (9 p.m.).
Pop culture phenomenon "Riverdale" is back Wednesday (8 p.m.). And at 9 p.m., new series "All American," based on the real life of NFL star Spencer Paysinger, tells the story of a high school football star from South Los Angeles, who is thrown into a new world of challenges and opportunities when he's recruited by a coach (Taye Diggs) to play in Beverly Hills.
The Winchester boys are back for their 14th season of "Supernatural" Thursday (8 p.m.), followed by the new series "Legacies" (9 p.m.). Set in the world of "The Vampire Diaries" and "The Originals," it's the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted.
Friday nights Alexis (Nicollette Sheridan) is back to stir up more trouble for the Carrington and Colby clans in "Dynasty" (8 p.m.), followed by the final season of the award-winning musical comedy "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" (9 p.m.).
The CW will launch its 2018-19 season in October, with premiere dates to be announced later. The season will once again kick off with the exclusive two-night telecast of the iHeartRadio Music Festival; airdates will be announced at a later date.
