For the first time in the network’s history, The CW will broadcast primetime programming on all seven nights of the week during the 2021-2022 season.
For the first time in its history, The CW is going to a seven nights a week broadcast schedule with new series airing on Saturdays. The network was founded in 2006 as a merging between The WB and UPN and has been host to a number of popular series, including the various Arrowverse shows and popular franchises like The Vampire Diaries and Riverdale. Recently, the network has found success in rebooting popular franchises for a new generation with Charmed, the recent reboots of Walker and Kung Fu, and even the upcoming Powerpuff.
As the network continues to renew and order pilots for new series, their schedule is filling up. Now, according to JoBlo, the network has announced it will be airing programs seven nights a week and adding a primetime block on Saturdays. This is the first time The CW or its original networks, WB and UPN, have broadcast programming across all seven nights of the week. This will take effect during the 2021 to 2022 broadcast season.
The CW has been making efforts to grow and expand in the past few years. In 2018, they started broadcasting series on Sunday nights, which have been home for series like Batwoman, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The network has picked up a number of new series including the upcoming season of Stargirl, a new series based around the DC comic character, Naomi, and recently a new series based on the hit game show, Legends of the Hidden Temple. The network has found series that have cultivated loyal fanbases and are now giving them more series across various nights, which can be enjoyed on the network, The CW app, or later on a streaming platform like HBO Max.
