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

at .

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

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.

Betty

Cheryl: Ummm, did you have a lobotomy for breakfast? You’re wearing my signature color!
Toni: You don’t own the color red. Red existed before you.
Cheryl: Not at Riverdale High. Here, I invented red. I am red.
[Cheryl snaps her fingers and two girls stand behind her]
Cheryl: Sorry, but this school is not big enough for the both of us, faux-pink lady. And I was here first. Go to Centerville High or Westerberg, I don’t care. But you have until first bell Monday to clear every trace of yourself out of these halls. Copy?
[Cheryl flips her hair in Toni’s face and walks away]
