The CW Summer Schedule: Burden of Proof, The Outpost & More!

at .

It's hard to believe it, but 2018-19 TV season is winding down!

As such, it's time to look ahead to the summer months, and The CW has firmed up its slate, which includes six new series, and five returning ones.

Kristin Kreuk Burden of Proof

Burden of Truth Season 2 is first out of the gate. The Canadian legal thriller starring Kristen Kreuk will get underway Sunday, June 2.

The Sunday slot is surprising, but the network will likely be testing the waters to assess how original content performs during summer.

On a more surprising note, Supernatural will be the show's lead-out. However, the hit drama series will already have completed airing for the season, so it will be encore episodes.

Jack Regrets It - Supernatural Season 14 Episode 18

Does this mean Supernatural could be headed to Sundays during the 2019-20 TV season?

Possibly.

Elsewhere, Masters of Illusion will return for a new season on Friday, June 7, with two original installments.

It will be followed by two episodes of The Big Stage.

Penn & Teller: Fool Us and Whose Line Is It Anyway, meanwhile, will return to the air on Monday, June 17.

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.

Mrs. Burble: Ms. Smith, Betty’s education, her relationship, her behavior, I think those thinks make you afraid. Afraid that Betty is growing; that may even be why you gave away her college money. Because if you can control her, you can hold onto her childhood just a little bit longer. Does that sound about right?
Alice: It’s just I’ve already lost two children. First Charles, then Polly, and now Betty. Growing up, leaving for college, moving out, moving on … it just feels like I’m losing you too.
Betty: Mom, that’s what happens. Kids grow up and they leave; I can’t be your only hope.
Alice: But I love you.
Betty: I love you too, but that’s not an apology. That does not justify the horrible, unhealthy things that you have done. How you keep suffocating me. And why me? Why are you doing these things to me?
Alice: Because I love you.
Betty: But you love Polly too! She’s in an asylum. She needs you; she needs your help. So, why can’t you do this to her?
Alice: Because I love you more! I love you most!
[Alice is shocked and runs away from the therapy session]
