The CW is packing all of its fall premiere dates into the week of Oct. 9, a departure from recent years when its series launches were staggered across several weeks.

The return of “Supergirl” kicks off the 2017-18 season on Monday, Oct. 9, followed by the premiere of military drama “Valor.” Both “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow” will return on Tuesday, Oct. 10. The reboot of “Dynasty” will debut on Wednesday, Oct. 11 immediately after the Season 2 premiere of “Riverdale.”

The series finale of “Vampire Diaries” this season made room on Friday for “Jane the Virgin” to move the 9 p.m. hour while “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” shifts to the 8 p.m. slot, with both shows premiering on Oct. 13.

The network is holding two of its new series orders for midseason: the DC Comics entry “Black Lightning” and Lucy Hale starrer “Life Sentence.”
