The CW Sets Fall Premiere Dates for Charmed, Riverdale & More!

at . Comments

The CW is the second network out of the gate to confirm when its fall schedule will kick off, and as usual, they are sticking to an October rollout. 

The most surprising thing about the schedule is that Charmed is debuting Sunday, October 14. 

The better scenario would have involved premiering it one week earlier which would mark exactly 20 years since the original series kicked off.

There has been a backlash as far as the new series is concerned, but it's still odd that the network is not capitalizing on the anniversary to launch the new iteration. 

The network's Tuesday line-up returns first, debuting October 9 with The Flash and Black Lightning. Tuesdays will likely emerge as one of The CW's stronger nights.

The CW's other highly anticipated series, All American, will launch alongside the return of Riverdale on Wednesday, October 10.

The Vampire Diaries/The Originals spinoff, Legacies, is getting a late premiere. It will debut Thursday, October 25. That is two weeks after the premiere of its Thursday companion, Supernatural. 

It looks like the reason for some delayed premieres comes down to encores of some of the other new additions.

The CW Quotes

Veronica: What the hell is a "Sticky Maple"?
Kevin: It's kinda what it sounds like. It's a Riverdale thing.
Veronica: No, Kevin, it's a slut-shaming thing. And I'm neither a slut nor am I going to be shamed by someone named, excuse me, Chuck Clayton! Does he really think he can get away with this? Does he not know who I am?! I will cut the brakes on his supped-up phallic symbol.

Betty: Why are you getting so upset? It's just a party, Jug.
Jughead: It's not just a party. It's the fact that you don't know, or even care, that this is the last thing I would want. You did this for you to prove something.
Betty: To prove what?
Jughead: You're a great girlfriend? I don't know. Doesn't it ever occur to you how different we are, like on a cellular DNA level? You're a straight-A student, a cheerleader. For God sakes, you're the perfect girl-next-door.
Betty: I hate that word.
Jughead: I'm the damaged, loner outsider from the wrong side of tracks. Betty, come on, who are we kidding?! We're on borrowed time.
