The CW’s 2018-2019 Fall Schedule Shakes Up DCTV Air Times
Earlier in the year, The CW revealed plans to extend its original programming to Sundays. The fall season will kick off this initiative and Supergirl is in the hot-seat. Beginning in October, Supergirl will air Sunday nights at 8pm EST, which moves the show from its normal Monday slot. In the Girl of Steel’s place is Legends of Tomorrow, set to air at 8pm EST on Mondays, a space it borrowed from Supergirl this past spring.
Arrow is on the move once more. Instead of following Supernatural on Thursday, the long-running series will start its seventh season on Monday nights at 9pm, airing after Legends. The Flash keeps its Tuesday 8pm slot and will be followed, once again, by Black Lightning at 9pm. Thus, the DC-branded series are all airing on back-to-back nights, a boon for the yearly crossover event.
Other weekly mainstays include Riverdale maintaining its Wednesday time of 8pm, Dynasty holding onto the 8pm spot on Friday, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s 9pm Friday slot. While the latter show enters its fourth and final season, The CW is also introducing a host of new series. The Charmed reboot will air on Sunday after Supergirl, Riverdale will launch All American, and Legacies takes Arrow’s Thursday slot after Supernatural.
The full schedule is featured below (via Deadline) — new series are italicized:
Legends of Tomorrow: 8–9pm
The Flash: 8–9pm
Black Lightning: 9-10pm
All American: 9–10pm
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: 9–10pm
Midseason series received new information about their forthcoming seasons as well. Jane the Virgin and iZombie are set to conclude next year with their respective fourth and fifth seasons. This makes for three impending CW farewells, as Crazy Ex-Girlfriend also enters its final run.
