After revising its schedule several times this year due to the pandemic, The CW has nailed down its roster for winter 2021. During the past few months, production resumed on several of the network’s hit shows, and by August, some series received fall premiere dates.

Supernatural is currently airing its final episodes, but many of The CW’s other favorites are due back next year, including The Flash, Riverdale, and Batwoman. Additionally, there are some new shows hitting the weekly lineup and changes in time slots.
