The CW Announces 2017 Fall Schedule

THE CW ANNOUNCES 2017-18 FALL SCHEDULE
MONDAY
8:00-9:00 PM SUPERGIRL
(@TheCWSupergirl #Supergirl)
SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC character Kara Zor-El, (Melissa Benoist)
Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to
finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old
Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El.
Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster
sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous
cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later, Kara was living in National City and still
concealing her powers, when a plane crash threatened Alex’s life and Kara took to the sky to save her.
Now, Kara balances her work as a reporter for CatCo Worldwide Media with her work for the
Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), a super-secret government organization whose mission
is to keep National City – and the Earth – safe from sinister threats. At the DEO, Kara works for J’onn
J’onzz (David Harewood), the Martian Manhunter, and alongside her sister, Alex, and best friend, Winn
Schott (Jeremy Jordan). Also in Kara’s life are media mogul Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), James Olsen
(Mehcad Brooks), a photo journalist who moonlights as Guardian, a masked vigilante, Lena Luthor (Katie
McGrath), and Mon-El of Daxam (Chris Wood), whose planet was ravaged by Krypton’s destruction. As
Kara struggles to navigate her relationships and her burgeoning life as a reporter, her heart soars as she
takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime. Based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster,
SUPERGIRL is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive
producers Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Arrow”), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Arrow”), Sarah
Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash”), Robert Rovner (“Private Practice,” “Dallas”) and Jessica Queller
(“Gilmore Girls,” “Gossip Girl,” “Felicity”).

9:00-10:00 PM VALOR
(@CW_Valor #Valor)
An elite unit of U.S. Army helicopter pilots called the Shadow Raiders are sent on a top secret mission to
Somalia, a mission that goes terribly awry. Only two members of the team return safely: Warrant Officer
Nora Madani (Christina Ochoa), one of the unit’s first female helicopter pilots, and her commanding
officer, Captain Leland Gallo (Matt Barr), while the whereabouts of their comrade Jimmy Kam (W. Tre
Davis) are unknown. Now back in the U.S., Madani and Gallo are the only ones who know the truth about
what really went wrong in Somalia. Nora’s boyfriend, First Lieutenant Ian Porter (Charlie Barnett),
suspects she’s not telling him the full story, and Jess Kam (Corbin Reid), Jimmy’s wife and Nora’s friend,
is frustrated and furious at being kept in the dark. Meanwhile Thea, (Melissa Roxburgh) the enigmatic
CIA officer charged with investigating the failed mission, has her own suspicions about what occurred.
With Nora still recovering from a gunshot wound suffered during the mission, the commander of the
Shadow Raiders, Col. Robert Haskins (Nigel Thatch), grounds her from flying. But when it’s discovered
that Jimmy is alive and being held captive by a group of ruthless terrorists, Nora is determined to join
Gallo back in the cockpit to rescue their friend. As preparation and training intensify, Nora and Gallo
grow closer, and soon find themselves torn between duty, honor and desire as they wonder who they can
trust, and whether the secrets they’re hiding will help save Jimmy… or put them all in terrible danger.
VALOR stars Matt Barr (“Sleepy Hollow”), Christina Ochoa (“Animal Kingdom”), Charlie Barnett
(“Chicago Fire”), W. Trè Davis (“Shades of Blue”), Corbin Reid (“How to Get Away With Murder”),
Nigel Thatch (“Selma”) and Melissa Roxburgh (“Star Trek Beyond”). From CBS Television Studios and
Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Bill Haber (“Rizzoli & Isles”), Anna Fricke (“Being
Human”), Kyle Jarrow (“Lost Generation”) and Michael Robin (“Nip/Tuck”).
TUESDAY
8:00-9:00 PM THE FLASH
(@CW_TheFlash #TheFlash)
Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police
Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating
a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the
fastest man alive — The Flash. But when Barry used his extraordinary abilities to travel back in time and
save his mother’s life, he inadvertently created an alternate timeline known as Flashpoint; a phenomenon
that gave birth to the villainous speed god known as Savitar, and changed the lives of Caitlin Snow
(Danielle Panabaker) and Wally West (Keiyan Lonsdale) forever. With the help of his adoptive father,
Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), his lifelong best friend and love interest Iris West (Candice Patton), and his
friends at S.T.A.R. Labs — Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), C.S.I Julian Albert (Tom Felton), and an Earth-
19 novelist named H.R. Wells (Tom Cavanaugh) — Barry continues to protect the people of Central City
from the meta-humans that threaten it. Based on the characters from DC, THE FLASH is from Bonanza
Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive
producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “Supergirl”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash”), Sarah
Schechter (“Arrow,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”) and Todd Helbing (“Black Sails”).
9:00-10:00 PM DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW
(@TheCW_Legends #LegendsofTomorrow)
After the defeat of Eobard Thawne and his equally nefarious Legion of Doom, the Legends face a new
threat created by their actions at the end of last season. In revisiting a moment in time that they had
already participated in, they have essentially fractured the timeline and created anachronisms – a
scattering of people, animals, and objects all across time! Our team must find a way to return all the
anachronisms to their original timelines before the time stream falls apart. But before our Legends can
jump back into action, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and his newly established Time Bureau call their
methods into question. With the Time Bureau effectively the new sheriffs in town, the Legends disband –
until Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell) discovers one of them in the middle of his well-deserved vacation in
Aruba. Seeing this as an opportunity to continue their time travelling heroics, Sara (Caity Lotz) wastes no
time in getting the Legends back together. We reunite with billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon
Routh), the unconventional historian-turned-superhero Nick Heywood (Nick Zano), and Professor Martin
Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human
Firestorm. Once reunited, the Legends will challenge the Time Bureau’s authority over the timeline and
insist that however messy their methods may be, some problems are beyond the Bureau’s capabilities.
Some problems can only be fixed by Legends. Based on the characters from DC, DC’S LEGENDS OF
TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner
Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”), Marc
Guggenheim (“Arrow,” “Trollhunters,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,”
“The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”), Phil Klemmer (“The Tomorrow People,” “Chuck”) and
Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash”)
WEDNESDAY
8:00-9:00 PM RIVERDALE
(@CW_Riverdale #Riverdale)
The first season of RIVERDALE found our characters reeling from the tragic death of high school
golden boy Jason Blossom. For many who had seen their home as perfect, safe, and innocent, the
investigation into Jason’s murder peeled back the layers of their hometown to reveal a place bubbling
over with secrets, mysteries, and scandals. Archie Andrews (KJ Apa), for instance, grew from a sweet,
all-American kid into a young man acutely aware of the darker side of life—he broke his best friend’s
heart, had a forbidden relationship with his music teacher, and grappled with whether he wanted to follow
in his dad’s salt-of-the-earth footsteps. On the positive side, Archie repaired his friendship with Jughead
Jones (Cole Sprouse), found some success as a musician—thanks in part to Josie McCoy (Ashleigh
Murray) and her band, the Pussycats—and found a new romantic interest in femme fatale Veronica Lodge
(Camila Mendes). New to town, Veronica spent the season trying to atone for her “bad girl” past, all the
while wrestling with her beloved father’s criminal legacy—and contending with a mother, Hermione
(Marisol Nichols), who might not be as innocent as she claimed. Veronica became fast-friends with
Archie’s girl-next-door neighbor, Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart), who did some growing up of her own this
season. After Archie’s rejection, Betty threw herself into running the school paper, “The Blue and Gold,”
where she discovered a better romantic match in sardonic outsider Jughead. Together, they tracked down
Betty’s sister Polly (guest star Tiera Skovbye), who had been sent away by their overbearing mother
Alice (Mädchen Amick). Under the guise of writing for the school paper, Betty and Jughead investigated
Jason Blossom’s death—which led to them discover that Jughead’s father—FP Jones (guest star Skeet
Ulrich)—was involved with covering up Jason’s murder. Meanwhile, Jason’s twin sister Cheryl
(Madelaine Petsch) ruled the school as Riverdale High’s venomous, merciless Red Queen—until she
learned the true identity of Jason’s killer. As the town breathed a collective sigh of relief that Jason’s
killer had been found out, another terrible crime occurred, in a space that had been considered one of the
town’s safest, most innocent places. If Jason Blossom’s murder revealed the slimy underbelly beneath
Riverdale’s surface, as we enter Season Two, the shooting of Fred Andrews threatens to plunge the entire
town into utter darkness. Based on the characters from Archie Comics, RIVERDALE is from Warner
Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, in association with Berlanti Productions, with executive
producers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (“Supergirl,” “Glee”), Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,”
“Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s
Legends of Tomorrow”) and Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics).

9:00-10:00 PM DYNASTY
(@CW_Dynasty #Dynasty)
Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies) is charismatic, cunning, and poised to become the new COO of her
father’s global energy empire – or so she thinks. When her father, Blake Carrington, (Grant Show)
summons Fallon and her brother, Steven, (James Mackay) home to the family compound in Atlanta,
Fallon is horrified to learn that the reunion isn’t to announce her promotion – but rather to make the
acquaintance of their stepmother-to-be, Cristal (Nathalie Kelley). Cristal is stunning – and almost as
young as Fallon, as Fallon is quick to point out – but she isn’t just some flimsy gold-digger to be scared
off. Cristal is driven, principled, a savvy publicity maven at Carrington Atlantic, and she truly loves
Blake. However, the wealth and privilege of the Carringtons’ world proves challenging to her, as she
clashes with the staff, including Blake’s butler Anders (Alan Dale), as well as Fallon, who all make it
very clear Cristal doesn’t belong. Family dynasties flow through blood, and Fallon would sooner draw
blood than call Cristal “Mom.” Fallon asks Culhane (Robert Christopher Riley), the family’s chauffeur –
and Fallon’s secret lover – to help expose Cristal for the fraud Fallon thinks she is. But when that
backfires, and Blake chooses Cristal over his own daughter, Fallon sidles up to Blake’s biggest rival, Jeff
Colby (Sam Adegoke), mixing business and pleasure to seek her revenge… leaving a jealous Culhane to
watch from the sidelines. While the Carringtons’ rocky relationships prove the theory that family sticks
together no matter what, Cristal is reminded of exactly that when her nephew, Sammy Jo (Rafael de la
Fuente), arrives with a suitcase full of secrets from Cristal’s past. Now Cristal’s carefully concealed
history could bring her future crashing down – and who knows who else she might take down with her.
DYNASTY stars Grant Show (“Melrose Place”), Elizabeth Gillies (“Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll”), Nathalie
Kelley (“UnReal,” “The Vampire Diaries”), James Mackay (“The Leftovers”), Alan Dale (“The O.C.”),
Sam Adegoke (“Murder in the First”), Robert Christopher Riley (“Hit the Floor”), and Rafael de la Fuente
(“Empire”). From CBS Television Studios in association with Fake Empire, with executive producers
Josh Schwartz (“Gossip Girl), Stephanie Savage (“Gossip Girl”), Sallie Patrick (“Revenge”), Esther and
Richard Shapiro (the creators of the original “Dynasty”) and Brad Silberling (“Jane The Virgin”).
THURSDAY
8:00-9:00 PM SUPERNATURAL
(@CW_SPN #Supernatural)
The exciting journey of the Winchester brothers continues as SUPERNATURAL enters its thirteenth
season. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have encountered every kind of supernatural
threat, facing down monsters, demons, and gods. Saving people, hunting things, and keeping the world
safe. In the show’s twelfth season, the Winchesters were reunited with their long-dead mother, and joined
forces with the British arm of the Men of Letters. But things turned from bad to worse, with the return of
Lucifer and the surprising revelation that the Devil is expecting a child. Now, Sam and Dean find
themselves facing a creature of almost unimaginable power… one that could save the world… or destroy
it. SUPERNATURAL is from Warner Bros. Television in association with Wonderland Sound and
Vision, with executive producers Robert Singer (“Midnight Caller”), Andrew Dabb and Phil Sgriccia.
9:00-10:00 PM ARROW
(@CW_Arrow #Arrow)
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed
dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned
home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green
Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computerscience
expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa
Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum),
and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana
Harkavy). Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it
threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his
relationship with each member of his “family”. Based on the characters from DC, ARROW is from
Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with
executive producers Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Supergirl”), Marc Guggenheim (“DC’s Legends of
Tomorrow,” “Eli Stone”), Wendy Mericle (“Desperate Housewives,” “Eli Stone”), Andrew Kreisberg
(“The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”) and Sarah Schechter (“The Flash,” “DC’s Legends of
Tomorrow”).

FRIDAY
8:00-9:00 PM CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND
(@CW_CrazyXGF #CrazyExGirlfriend)
When last we left our intrepid and at least slightly nutty heroine, Rebecca Bunch (Rachel Bloom), she
was at her wedding, abandoned at the altar by her obsession, Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III). In that
moment, Rebecca found herself in a cliffhanger. Literally, because she, like, almost flung herself off a
cliff. Instead, she found an unexpected well of strength inside herself and finally stood up to her
abandoning father, flanked by her fierce girl squad. Phew. It was QUITE the wedding. So, what’s a girl to
do now? Why, get revenge of course. Because Josh Chan, love of her life? He’s crossed over to the dark
side — ergo, he must die, unless of course he sees the error of his ways and realizes he and Rebecca are
meant to be. But will he? It might be a bit tough to figure out, since he ran off the day of the wedding to
be a priest. (Did we mention it was QUITE the wedding?) There’s also the matter of Rebecca’s friends
and how far they will follow her attraction now that it’s turned possibly just a touch fatal. Paula (Donna
Lynne Champlin), now in training to be a legal eagle, has to decide how far to walk the gangplank for her
cookie, Rebecca. Meanwhile, Valencia (Gabrielle Ruiz) and Heather (Vella Lovell) will be facing giant
obstacles and challenges in their personal lives. Hey, it’s not like anyone in West Covina ever gets to just
be happy. In season three, we will also spend more time with a new man in Rebecca’s orbit, mega WASP
Nathaniel Plimpton III (Scott Michael Foster), who will collide with her like a very handsome meteor.
He may seem all alpha on the outside, but has his own daddy issues to work out. See above, no one in the
Cov gets to just be happy right away. In OTHER WeCo news, supercouple White Josh (David Hull) and
Darryl (Pete Gardner) will be challenged by Darryl’s baby fever. Will Darryl give up his yen for a baby
Darryl or Darrylette? And how will Rebecca be entangled in their plans? And what about Rebecca’s
mental health? Will she finally turn her attention to the fuel for her romantic fire? This and more,
accompanied by a bejillion songs and dances, coming up next on season three of CRAZY EXGIRLFRIEND.
From CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television, CRAZY EXGIRLFRIEND
is executive produced by Rachel Bloom, along with Aline Brosh McKenna (“The Devil
Wears Prada”), Marc Webb (“500 Days of Summer,” “The Amazing Spider-Man” films), Erin Ehrlich
(“Awkward”), Michael Hitchcock (“Glee”) and Sarah Caplan (“Ray Donovan”).
9:00-10:00 PM JANE THE VIRGIN
(@CWJaneTheVirgin #JaneTheVirgin)
It’s been quite a year (or three) for Jane Villanueva (Gina Rodriguez). Although she got married, her
husband Michael (Bret Dier) was shot on their wedding night! But luckily, he lived to tell the tale. And
then, at long last… Jane had sex. That’s right, friends, she’s Jane The Virgin no more! And let me tell
you, married life was everything she had hoped for… until the worst thing ever happened and Michael
died from complications from his injury. I know. It was a heartbreaker. We pick our story up three years
later and Jane’s life is certainly not what she planned. First of all, she’s a widow, like her Abuela (Ivonne
Coll). But she’s also channeled that grief into a book about her love story with Michael… And guess
what? It was being published! So that was good news! Oh, and also on the bright side – Jane’s parents –
Xo (Andrea Navedo) and Ro (Jaime Camil) – finally found their way back to each other and got engaged.
And speaking of finding their way back to each other, Jane and Rafael (Justin Baldoni) are now the
closest of friends. And it’s a good thing, because remember their cute, snuggly son Mateo? Well, he’s
now quite the handful – to put it mildly. And to make matters worse – Rafael’s other kids were frickin’
angels. Yup, that’s right, the twins he had with Petra were smart and well-behaved and pretty damn near
perfect. Oh, and Petra (Yael Grobglas) was kicking butt professionally too. See, she’d transformed the
sleek Marbella into a kids’ hotel. And business was booming until everyone’s (not) favorite employee
Scott was found dead during the inaugural pirate treasure hunt! I know, OMG, right? And soon, Petra
and her twin sister Anezka were both suspects! But you know who it actually was… ? Actually, I’m not
