Back in May, during the CW Upfronts, the show line-up was revealed – but today the CW network just revealed its premiere dates for the Fall 2013 schedule. Sadly you won’t see your favorite shows like The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Arrow, and Beauty and the Beast until October.
This year, for the second time in a row the network chose to market away from the Big 4 networks (NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX). Instead of the traditional September premiere line-up, the CW will begin its Fall schedule on October 7.
Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast both move to Monday nights, premiering on Monday, October 7.
Arrow will keep its Wednesday night time slot, premiering its 2nd season on October 9th. The new series The Tomorrow People will premiere right after at 9pm.
The Vampire Diaries will kick off its 5th season on Thursday, October 10th at 8pm followed by the series premiere of the 14th century drama about Mary Queen of Scots, Reign.
On Tuesday, October 15th, The Vampire Diaries spin-off, The Originals, will premiere in the opening time slot. Supernatural moved days once again and will air its season 9 premiere right after The Originals.
The Carrie Diaries moves to Friday nights, premiering on October 25th, and will share the night with the 20th cycle of America’s Next Top Model.
Here’s what it looks like all together:
MONDAY, OCTOBER 7
8:00-9:00 PM – HART OF DIXIE
9:00-10:00 PM – BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9
