After renewing most of its lineup earlier this year, the CW has limited space on its 2016-2017 primetime schedule. But it’s making room for four new shows, including the much-discussed second season of Supergirl. Get your first look at all of the CW’s new shows below.

1. Frequency


Based on the New Line Cinema film of the same name, the new CW drama stars Peyton List as Detective Raimy Sullivan, a female police detective who discovers she is able to speak via ham radio with her estranged father, also a detective, who died in 1996. They forge a new relationship while working together on an unresolved murder, but unintended consequences of the “butterfly effect” wreak havoc in the present day. Riley Smith, Devin Kelley, and Anthony Ruivivar co-star in the series, which will air Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. Eastern this fall.

2. No Tomorrow

Tori Anderson stars as Evie Callahan, a risk-averse quality-control assessor who falls in love with Xavier Holliday (Joshua Sasse), a charming, free-spirited man who lives his life to the fullest because he believes that mankind only has eight months and 12 days to survive until a runaway asteroid hits the planet. The two embark on a quest to fulfill their individual bucket lists in the remaining time, leading to comedic and poignant results. Jonathan Langdon and Sarayu Blue also co-star in the series, which is set to air on Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. Eastern this fall.

3. Supergirl


OK, so this isn’t exactly a new show, but it is new to this particular network. After making a highly publicized move to The CW from CBS, Supergirl is expected to bring back most of its series regulars, including Melissa Benoist in the titular role, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, and Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers. Calista Flockhart, who plays Kara’s boss and head of a media empire, Cat Grant, is reportedly still in negotiations and may not continue as a regular, but only in a recurring role. Though fans will be disappointed to see less of her, the move in network does allow for some major crossover potential, as teased in the above clip. Supergirl will maintain its 8 p.m. Monday night time slot this fall.

4. Riverdale
