The CW will be ringing in 2021 with a bang and a vengeance. The network on Thursday announced January/February premiere dates for nearly a dozen delayed returning favorites, including The Flash, Riverdale, Charmed and Batwoman, as well as anticipated freshman entries Superman & Lois and the Jared Padalecki-headlined Walker.
As previously reported, COVID-related production delays forced The CW to push its traditional fall launch to 2021.
In making its schedule announcement, The CW also confirmed that it has acquired the Canadian supernatural drama Trickster, to air Tuesdays-at-9 pm beginning Jan. 12.
Returning dramas being held for Spring/Summer 2021 include DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Dynasty, In the Dark, Roswell, New Mexico, Stargirl and Supergirl. Rookie series Kung Fu and The Republic of Sarah are also being targeted for that time frame .
