The odd duo of Batwoman and Legends of Tomorrow will continue on Wednedays this Fall.
The CW announced its Fall broadcast schedule on Tuesday, revealing “event-ized” runs for The Flash and Riverdale, and a overhauled calendar thanks to the network adding Saturday night to its slate. But the big news for us, though, is Batwoman and Legends switching from Sunday night to Wednesdays. The two programs are an odd duo. Legends comedy is a big contrast to the more serious-minded Batwoman, but the pairing seems to be working for the network as they take over the mid-week. On Sundays, meanwhile, the revived Legends of the Hidden Temple and a US version of Killer Camp will take the place of the Arrowverse shows.
Mondays will see All American joined by a reboot of The 4400, while Tuesdays in the Fall will see both the The Flash and Riverdale telling special five-part stories. On The Flash, this means a tour of the Arrowverse which will have a “a crossover-type feel,” according to network chairman and CEO Mark Pedowitz. Riverdale, meanwhile, will be what Pedowitz called “more special than usual.” Thursdays will feature Walker and Legacies and Friday unites Penn & Teller: Fool Us with Nancy Drew. And that new Saturday block will be two straight hours of Whose Line Is It Anyway?
The recently picked-up Naomi will join the schedule in the mid-season, as will All American: Homecoming, Kung Fu and Superman & Lois. The latter’s move to mid-season is interesting, but considering its COVID-19 related production delays and Supergirl airing through October, it makes a certain sense. Also, it clears the way for Legends to return in the Fall; something it hasn’t done in a few seasons and something we’ll be happy to see.
The CW’s new schedule begins in October.
