♦ Riverdale is relocating from Wednesday to Tuesday, where it will follow the network’s biggest hit, The Flash. Wait — there’s more: Both shows will kick off their new seasons with what The CW is calling “five-episode events.”
♦ The Flash‘s five-episode event will feature other, TBD Arrowverse characters. “We’re talking about other superheroes from the CWverse that will come together in each [of the] individual episodes,” says CW CEO Mark Pedowitz. “That will not quite be a crossover but it will have a crossover-type feel at the introduction of all these characters.”
♦ Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow are also on the move, with both shows fleeing Sunday for Wednesday. (The CW is turning Sunday nights over to game shows.) Nancy Drew, meanwhile, will shift from Wednesdays to (gulp) Fridays.
♦ The CW is holding nine series for midseason, including the new All American spinoff and returning dramas Superman & Lois, Charmed and Kung Fu.
♦ Only one new scripted offering — a reboot of The 4400 (sans the “the”) — made it onto the fall schedule.
