The CW fall 2018 premiere dates: Legends of Tomorrow, Supernatural, Arrow, and more

The CW logoWant to know the premiere dates for Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, Supergirl, Supernatural, and many of your other favorite shows? Rest assured, we’ve got much of that information for you within this article!

Below, you can see all of the official start dates for The CW, and it’s a rather-interesting way in which the network is structuring it this time. They’re actually scaling out many of their premiere dates throughout the month of October, presumably to add some time in which to air repeats of other new shows and cross-promote along the way. Remember here also that this is the first time in which the network is officially programming on Sunday nights.

All times listed below are Eastern, unless otherwise indicated.

Tuesday, October 9

8:00 – The Flash

9:00 – Black Lightning

Wednesday, October 10

8:00 – Riverdale

9:00 – All American (new series)

Thursday, October 11

8:00 – Supernatural

Friday, October 12

8:00 – Dynasty

9:00 – Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Sunday, October 14

8:00 – Supergirl

9:00 – Charmed (new series)

Monday, October 15

8:00 – Arrow

Monday, October 22

9:00 – Legends of Tomorrow

Thursday, October 25

9:00 – Legacies (new series)

When looking at this schedule, the strangest thing about it is clearly to us starting Legends of Tomorrow and Legacies later in the month for no clear reason, other than that they really want to try to give additional airings to some of the other new shows. Every one of the CW’s new series for the fall is in our mind a gamble — All American isn’t generating a ton of buzz right now while the Charmed reboot is controversial. Meanwhile, Legacies has potential but the ratings for The Originals in its final season dictate that the new show is either going to need to have a lot of new fans or every single person who watched The Originals is going to have to come over in order for it to have a chance.

For those wondering why these series are starting in October rather than September in the first place, the short answer is just that this is something that The CW always does — they don’t like competing directly against the other network premieres.
