Hot on the heels of the news that The CW ordered additional episodes of bothiZombie and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, the network has announced its midseason schedule, which includes premiere dates for returning drama The 100 and the new Arrow and The Flash spin-off DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
The good news is that most of the network's schedule will remain unchanged come January. Monday through Wednesday nights will be identical to what they were in the fall. However, for the first time since it debuted in 2009, The Vampire Diaries won't be airing at 8pm on Thursday. Beginning January 29, the veteran drama starring Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley will move to Fridays at 8pm, followed by the show's spin-off The Originals (which also aired on Thursdays), at 9pm. Sliding into the Salvatores' old timeslot on Thursday, January 21 will be the series premiere of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, followed by the Season 3 premiere of The 100 at 9pm. To accommodate this new schedule, Reign will air its winter finale on Friday, January 22 and then return at a later date, yet to be announced. The CW's only remaining new series, Containment, from TVD and The Originals' Julie Plec, has yet to be scheduled.
And if you're champing at the bit to know what happens when Clarke, Bellamy, and the rest of The 100 return, it's safe to say that whatever peace they found after surviving the battle against Mount Weather will be short-lived. Threats both old and new threaten to pull them apart and push them further than they've ever gone before, and according to the network logline for Season 3, it's gonna be bigger than ever: "First, they fought to survive. Then, they fought for their friends. Now, they will fight for the human race."
Oh, is that all?
Are you okay with The Vampire Diaries moving to Fridays?
