Arrow & Riverdale Trade Time-Slots in The CW’s Fall Line-Up

Arrow & Riverdale Trade Time-Slots in The CW’s Fall Line-Up

As this season of television winds down, networks are debuting their schedules for the fall. Of course, changes are often expected and the same holds true for what The CW has in store. One of the more notable changes is Arrow’s move from Wednesday at 8pm EST to Thursday at 9pm EST. The series has held the spot for as long as it has been on the air. However, Riverdale will now succeed it, as it moves from Thursday at 9 to Wednesday at 8. Check out the network’s fall schedule below:

8-9 PM — Supergirl
9-10 PM — Valor (New Program)

8-9 PM — The Flash
9-10 PM — DC’S Legends of Tomorrow

8-9 PM — Riverdale (New Night)
9-10 PM — Dynasty (New Program)

8-9 PM — Supernatural
9-10 PM — Arrow (New Night)

8-9 PM — Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (New Time)
9-10 PM — Jane the Virgin (New Night)

The CW’s latest series order of Black Lightning and Life Sentence (starring Pretty Little Liars’ Lucy Hale) are missing from the schedule, as both will premiere mid-season. The 100, The Originals and iZombie are all absent, as well. However, each of those began airing during mid-season this year.

Supergirl and Riverdale are set to lead-in the premieres of Valor and Dynasty on Monday and Wednesday night, respectively. Because Legends of Tomorrow runs shorter than the other Arrowverse series, it stands to reason Black Lightning will fill its place next spring. If so, another superhero offering will follow The Flash on Tuesday nights once Legends tops off Season 3.

Other noteworthy changes is Jane the Virgin’s move from its Monday night time-slot, wherein it typically follows Supergirl. The comedy series will now air Friday nights at 9 after Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

The Flash and Arrow finales are quickly approaching. The Speedster’s world may, or may not, come crashing down next Tuesday, May 23. Meanwhile, Arrow will spend its last Wednesday before the move with its hero surviving Purgatory on May 24.
