The CW’s Fall Schedule is out, and it boasts three new series, All-American, Legacies, and a Charmed reboot.
Monday: 8:00: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow; 9:00: Arrow
Tuesday: 8:00 The Flash; 9:00: Black Lightning
Wednesday: 8:00 Riverdale; 9:00 All American
Thursday: 8:00 Supernatural; 9:00 Legacies
Friday: 8:00 Dynasty; 9:00 Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Sunday: 8:00 Supergirl; 9:00 Charmed
The cool news here is how much different the Charmed reboot looks than the original:
Original Charmed star Holly Marie Combs isn’t exactly thrilled that this one is being called a “feminist reboot,” because she thought the original was plenty feminist itself, which … fair. On the other hand …
My inner 9 yr old is freaking out. So many white witches in my literary and visual story consumption history. https://t.co/7eVbusPGdv— Joelle Monique @comicconrvlton May 19-20 (@JoelleMonique) May 17, 2018
Here’s a trailer:
Meanwhile, All-American is a football drama from Greg Berlanti (if Netflix steals him, the CW disappears) based on the life of Spencer Paysinger, who was recruited from South L.A. to play for Beverly Hills High. Legacies is a spin-off of The Originals.
The sort-of but-not-really bad news is this: Next year will be the last for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, and iZombie, with the latter two not premiering until midseason. I’m not altogether bummed about this because it feels like a natural stopping point for both iZombie and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, while Gina Rodriguez is blowing up and has other projects to tend to, and that’s nothing but good news.
Midseason will also see a reboot of Roswell and a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries. Supernatural has also been renewed for an ungodly 14th season, although its spin-off, Wayward Sisters, was not picked up.
