The CW's Fall Schedule: The Originals Moves to Thursdays, Arrow-Flash Spin-Off to Midseason

See what else is on the move

The CW has made some changes to its weekly lineup for the fall, most notably pairing The Originalswith its predecessor, The Vampire Diaries, on Thursdays.

Reign is also on the move, heading to Fridays. The decision was made in part to "get it away" from ABC's Scandal on Thursday nights, CW President Mark Pedowitz told reporters on a conference call Thursday.

Tuesdays (The Flash and iZombie) and Wednesdays (Arrow and Supernatural) will remain intact. With Supernatural heading into its 11th season, Pedowitz indicated that the network "has no intention" of it being the show's last. Conversations about a spin-off, in the wake of the failed Bloodlines, are ongoing, according to Pedowitz.

Pedowitz also has "great confidence" that The Vampire Dairies will last several more years. After Nina Dobrev's departure on Thursday's Season 6 finale, the show will be "much more focused on the brothers" in Season 7, he said.

In addition, the Arrow-Flash spin-off, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, will be held to midseason -- likely premiering in January or February, Pedowitz said -- along with The 100, Whose Line Is It Anyway? and the new drama Containment. Beauty and the Beastwill also likely return as a summer show, although could come back earlier depending on its performance this season, Pedowitz said.

Monday nights will feature back-to-back comedies, with new series Crazy Ex-Girlfriendpaired with Jane the Virgin.
