The CW Sets Premiere Dates for iZombie, The Messengers; Moves Supernatural

Supernatural is on the move!

If one thing can be said about the successful series on The CW, it will live far beyond any placement on the schedule. According to the midseason plans announced today, Supernatural will be found on Wednesdays after Arrow beginning March 18.

That makes room for new series iZombie to take residence behind the highly successful freshman series The Flash beginning Tuesday, March 17. That's a nice nod of confidence in the series by Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars).


In iZombie, Rose McIver stars as Liv, an over-achieving medical student who puts off her rather sterile existence for one night that turns into a zombie feeding frenzy, changing her future forever. She tosses her hopes for a medical degree aside, takes a job in the medical examiner's office to allow her access to the brains she must consume and things get interesting when she realizes she takes on a bit of the memories of all she eats.

Finally, The Messengers, a new post-apocalyptic drama, will air on Fridays at 9/8c beginning on April 10. After a strange object plummets to earth causing a blinding explosion causing shockwaves connecting five strangers who awaken after the pulse with extraordinary gifts. There is a figure known as "The Man" who brings death wherever he goes and only the five newly christened angels of the apocalypse may be hope for humanities survival. Cheerful!

The CW Quotes

Kevin: Okay, Veronica, I’m obsessed with everything that just happened.
Veronica: Thank you! It helps to be off-book and in full costume.
Betty: Don’t be so modest, you are the literally embodiment of Chris. Never has a role been perfectly typecast.
Archie: Betty!
Veronica: What was that, Betty?
Betty: I mean think about it: Spoiled rich girl, check. Major daddy issues, check. Bad to the bone, trying to control everyone around her, including her boyfriend and best friend. Check, check, check.

I’m sorry, Donna, but I’m the ultimate wild card. I am the daughter of The Black Hood. The nightmare from next door. I’m training with the FBI and I’m coming for you, you psycho b****! Not Joan, not Jonathan, not even Brett. Just you.
