The CW Announces Premiere Dates for The 100 and Riverdale
It's hard to believe, but the end of the year is fast approaching, and that means we can start looking forward to midseason premieres. The CW has just released their midseason schedule, and it includes the fourth season premiere of The 100 and the series premiere of Archie Comics adaptation Riverdale

The network announced that the Riverdale series premiere will air on January 26, continuing to air on Thursdays, while The 100 season four will premiere on February 1, airing on Wednesdays. While Riverdale was as entertaining, lighthearted, and cheeky as we've come to expect from Greg Berlanti (read our spoiler-free review of the pilot here), we're most excited about The 100, which has become one of the most forward-thinking and philosophically sophisticated dramas on TV, for any age group. While it's had setbacks in the social justice arena, it's still the kind of socially conscious show we need right now.

The CW also announced that they will not be ordering new episodes of freshman dramas Frequency and No Tomorrow, both of which have been flagging in the ratings. There is a chance that they will still be renewed if they do well on Netflix, but they are definitely on the bubble. In the meantime, Legends of Tomorrow will replace No Tomorrow in the post-Flash 9pm Tuesday time slot after the No Tomorrow season finale, while Supernatural will move into the 8pm Thursday slot to lead into Riverdale

Here's the new schedule (via Collider):
