The network announced some of their dates in a statement on Thursday, which in turn does give us a fairly good sense as to how the network is shutting down seasons and preparing for the fall. The big surprise for many may be seeing just how many series are actually ending in June rather than May — a move mostly precipitated by some shows getting off to such a late start.
Check out all of the dates below, along with a little bit of commentary for a few of them. All times listed are Eastern, and you can check out our full finale guide to get some additional information.
Thursday, May 11
9:00 – Riverdale
Thursday, May 18
8:00 – Supernatural
Monday, May 22
8:00 – Supergirl
9:00 – Jane the Virgin
As a reminder, the third season of Jane the Virgin is only running for 20 episodes — we love the show, but we wouldn’t mind condensing the story down to just 13 or 15 episodes a year.
Tuesday, May 23
8:00 – The Flash
Wednesday, May 24
8:00 – Arrow
9:00 – The 100
Friday, June 16
9:00 – Reign
This marks the series finale for the Adelaide Kane series — be sure to head over here to see more of what she has to say about saying goodbye to the series now.
Friday, June 23
9:00 – The Originals
It’s possible that this could be the series finale, given that the show hasn’t been officially renewed just yet.
Tuesday, June 27
9:00 – iZombie
You can say the same thing here, but we’re admittedly a little bit more worried about this show’s future than we are The Originals based on some recent numbers.
Odds are, you will know the future of both the aforementioned bubble shows by the time you get around to early May when The CW has their upfront presentation. Otherwise, it could create a lot of confusion and pandemonium.
What do you think about the finale dates, and do you like that The CW scaled so many of them out? Share now in the comments!
