The CW Announces Fall 2014 Premiere Dates for The Vampire Diaries, The Flash, Reign, and More
Following in the footsteps of NBC and CBS, The CW has announced premiere dates for its new fall shows. The network's schedule kicks off with the two-night IHeartRadio Festival on Monday, September 29 and Tuesday, September 30.
The network is reallllly pushing The Flash, not only airing encores of the two episodes of Arrow in which Grant Gustin's Barry Allen was introduced, but also giving the new series two post-Arrow time slots to help boost its visibility. Repeats of Arrow's "The Scientist" and "Three Ghosts" will air Wednesday, October 1 at 8pm and 9pm, respectively, with The Flash itself debuting on Tuesday, October 7 at 8pm. Arrow's third season will debut the following night, on Wednesday, October 8 at 8pm, followed by an encore of The Flash's series premiere.
Elsewhere in the lineup, we'll finally be reunited with Alaric (and hopefully find out WTF happened to Damon and Bonnie) when The Vampire Diaries returns for Season 6 on Thursday, October 2 at 8pm, followed by the Season 2 premiere of Reign at 9pm.
On Monday, October 6, we'll return to New Orleans and the Mikaelson family when Season 2 of The Originals premieres on its new night at 8pm. This will be followed by a Supernatural retrospective special prior to the Season 10 premiere on Tuesday, October 7 at 9pm after The Flash premiere.
New dramedy Jane the Virgin will debut Monday, October 13 at 9pm after the second episode of The Originals. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait until Wednesday, October 22 to find out what happened to Finn and Bellamy when Season 2 of The 100 premieres at 9pm.
America's Next Top Model and Whose Line Is It Anyway will be holding down the fort on Fridays. ANTM returns for Cycle 21 on Friday, August 22 at 9pm, while new episodes of Whose Line Is It Anyway? will continue to air on Mondays throughout the summer at 8pm and 8:30pm before shifting to Fridays on October 3.
