The final season of The Originals is coming a little earlier than previously expected.
The CW announced a schedule shuffle on Friday, with The Originals moving from Fridays to Wednesdays for Season 5. That means the premiere will now happen on Wednesday, April 18 — after Riverdale's highly-anticipated musical episode — with Life Sentence moving to Fridays starting April 27.
The Originals Season 5 premieres Wednesday, April 18 at 9/8c on The CW, and will continue in that time slot for the rest of its run.
(Full disclosure: TV Guide is owned by CBS, one of The CW's parent companies.)
