Even though Supergirl is moving networks, from CBS to The CW, it’s keeping it’s Monday 8pm timeslot. Definitely a wise move. Even if the superhero series loses half the audience due to the move, I’m sure The CW will be content.

Speaking of superheroes, the network revealed it’s planning an epic four-way crossover episode with Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl. CW chief Mark Pedowitz teased the event will be “our biggest one ever.”

With regards to new programming, the CW ordered three new series. The romantic dramedy, No Tomorrow, will follow The Flash on Tuesdays while the reworking of the 2000 film, Frequency, gets the post-Arrow slot on Wednesdays. Sadly, Greg Berlanti’s subversive take on Archie Comics, Riverdale, won’t premiere until midseason.

Check out the trailers for the new shows below, along with The CW’s new schedule. Once again, Supernatural, which is entering its 12th season, is on the move. It returns back to Thursdays, which it occupied last in Season 5.

Earlier this week, The CW renewed 11 of their hour-long dramas. With only 10 hours to fill on their schedule, it’ll be interesting to see how they cram everything in. Fingers crossed, execs make it a priority to find a spot for Riverdale. Greg Berlanti’s (Supergirl, The Flash) adaptation of Archie Comics is shaping up quite nicely.

Already on board on the potential series are KJ Apa and Camila Mendes as Archie and Veronica respectively. Rounding out the cast are Surviving Jack‘s Lili Reinhart as Betty; Cole Sprouse (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody) as Jughead; Luke Perry (Beverly Hills, 90210) as Archie’s dad, Fred Andrews; Marisol Nichols (Teen Wolf) as Veronica’s mom, Hermione Lodge; and Madchen Amik (The Witches of East End) as Betty’s mom Alice Cooper. Find out below who’s been tapped to play Riverdale’s resident gay, Kevin Keller.

The CW Renews… Everything

Whatever they’re drinking over at The CW, please share. The network executives were in fantastic moods. They renewed every program currently airing.

With 11 one-hour shows and only ten hours to fill on their schedule, clearly there’s going to be some tag team action going on. Plus, there’s all the new shows, which hopefully includes Riverdale, to cram in.

“The CW has become home to some of the most critically-acclaimed shows on broadcast television, with a wide array of fantastic scripted series across the week, ranging from musical comedy, to superhero action, to gritty sci-fi dramas,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz. “As we continue to further our strategy of more year-round original programming, picking up these 11 series for the 2016–2017 season puts us in a great position of having proven, high-quality shows to launch in the fall as well as midseason and summer of 2017.”

Most likely, not every renewed show is getting a full season order. Episode counts will be announced at a later date. Find out below which CW show made history.

Mädchen Amick Heads To Riverdale

First Luke Perry and now this. The CW execs better pick up this series after the pilot is filmed. Riverdale has guilty pleasure written all over it and I can’t wait. And don’t even get me started on the hot stud they cast to play the new Archie.

Mädchen Amick of Twin Peaks fame is the latest to join Greg Berlanti’s subversive take on the iconic comic book series. The 45-year-old actress is set to play Alice Cooper. No, not the rocker Alice Cooper but rather Betty Cooper’s mom. In addition to being a parent, her character is also a career woman. She’s described as a steely perfectionist who places exceedingly high expectations on her daughter, Betty.

Luke Perry is heading back to high school. Only this time, he’s playing one of the parents. WOW!!! When did I get old :(

The CW reveals the 49-year-old former Beverly Hills, 90210 actor will play Archie’s dad, Fred Andrews in their potential new series, Riverdale. His character owns a construction business and has a laid-back parenting style.

Riverdale is an upcoming one-hour drama based on the beloved Archie Comics, set in present day. It’s a subversive take on Archie and his crew, exploring the surrealism of small-town life — the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade. Greg Berlanti, the man behind Supergirl and Blindspot will produce the series for The CW.

Perry joins previously announced cast members Cole Sprouse (Jughead Jones) and Lili Reinhart (Betty Cooper). Find out below who Berlanti tapped to play the iconic teen from Archie Comics.

Riverdale is an upcoming one-hour drama based on the beloved Archie Comics, set in present day. It’s a subversive take on Archie and his crew, exploring the surrealism of small-town life — the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade. Greg Berlanti, the man behind Supergirl and Blindspot will produce the series for The CW.

No word if Berlanti will incorporate the recent revelation about Jughead’s asexuality. Knowing Berlanti, he probably will.

Speaking of Berlanti, he’s becoming the Shonda Rhimes of The CW. He has Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow all currently airing. With only so few timeslots on the network, the 43-year-old producer is certainly a dominant force.

The first actors have been cast for the pilot. Lili Reinhart (Surviving Jack) will play loveable Betty Cooper while Cole Sprouse (The Suite Life Of Zack & Cody) will tackle the role of Jughead Jones. This marks the latter’s return to acting after taking a break to attend university. Check out what Sprouse looks like these days.

Crossover episodes aren’t anything new. However, ones that involve shows on two different networks are rare. The fact both Supergirl and The Flash are both produced by Greg Berlanti definitely assisted in this coming to fruition. Also, since CBS and The CW have the same parent company also helped.

“We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we starting making Supergirl — The Flash and Supergirl are teaming up!,” stated series exec producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg. “Thanks to the fans and journalists who have kept asking for this to happen. It is our pleasure and hope to create an episode worthy of everyone’s enthusiasm and support.”
