The CW Announces its 2016-2017 schedule at the CW Upfronts!

“The CW has become known as the home of the best, most creative series on broadcast television, in a range of genres that appeal to the most balanced audience of any broadcast network, and the series we have for next season will absolutely continue to fit that bill,” the president of the CW, Mark Pedowitz, stated at the CW upfronts on Thursday May 19th.

Various cast members of CW shows appeared and chatted – and of course – revealed the channel’s upcoming lineup for the 2016-2017 fall TV season. With Supergirl joining them this year, the channel has a superhero show airing almost every night (The Vampire Diaries airing on Fridays is its only exception)!

The new schedule is as fellows:

Monday: -8/7pmc: Supergirl (New Network)
-9/8pmc: Jane the Virgin

Tuesday: -8/7pmc: The Flash
-9/8pmc: No Tomorrow (New Series)

Wednesday: -8/7pmc: Arrow
-9/8pmc: Frequency (New Series)

Thursday: -8/7pmc: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow 
-9/8pmc: Supernatural (New Night)

Friday: -8/7pmc: The Vampire Diaries
-9/8pmc: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (New Night)

Don’t see your favorite CW show on this schedule? It’s probably on the mid-season roster. Unfortunately we will have to wait until early 2017 for The 100, iZombie, The Originals, Reign, and new series, Riverdale.

Here at With An Accent, we are excited to continue to cover: Arrow, The Flash, iZombie and Reign.

The CW also unveiled their usual ‘Dare to Defy’ teaser, promoting their new lineup, which can be viewed below.

What are your thoughts on the new schedule/line up? I find it amusing that the CW has so many TV series this season that they had to push some to air during mid-season time slots. But with that said, I find it odd that The Vampire Diaries and its spin-off, The Originals, aren’t at least airing in the same week as each other. Could this mean the end for the vampire spin-off?

Do you think the CW should have incorporated a 7/6pmc or 10/9pm time slot? I don’t see why it would have hurt to do so.
