The series, which follows Sam and Dean’s parents, will kick off Tuesdays and lead into the acquired series “The Professionals” starring “Smallville” alum Tom Welling.
On Mondays, “All American” remains in the 8 p.m. slot and will be followed by the spinoff “All American: Homecoming.” On Wednesdays, DC series “Stargirl” is being moved to a fall primetime slot, kicking off the night at 8 p.m. followed by the third season of “Kung Fu.”
Thursdays belong to Jared Padalecki, with “Walker” staying in the 8 p.m. slot and leading into the prequel series “Walker: Independence.” Fridays and Saturdays are all alternative programming. “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” and “Whose Line Is It Anyway” run Fridays while “Magic with the Stars” and “World’s Funniest Animals” are on Saturdays. Finally, on Sunday, the acquired series “Family Law” and “Coroner” will air.
The CW also announced that “Riverdale” Season 7 will bow at midseason, with that season also being the show’s last. The new DC show “Gotham Knights” is being held for midseason, as are returning shows “The Flash,” “Nancy Drew,” and “Superman & Lois.”
This fall schedule is a bit of a far cry from last season, which featured much more original programming as opposed to acquired series. It comes after The CW canceled several of its original scripted series going into this year’s upfront presentation, including long-running shows like “Legends of Tomorrow” and “Dynasty.” Freshman DC series “Naomi” was also among the cancellations.
The reason for the pared down schedule comes as The CW’s parent companies — WarnerMedia and CBS — are undergoing corporate shakeups amid the Warner-Discovery merger and the emergence of Paramount Global. The CW is also rumored to be up for sale, with Nexstar interested in acquiring a majority stake in the network.
