The CW

The CW was up first at the TCA Winter 2015 Press Tour yesterday for the broadcast portion and we have the full scoop! Cable went last week and we will have a recap of some of the main highlights this week. Back to The CW, they announced its midseason schedule, including the series premieres of new dramas iZombie and The Messengers, the new unscripted competition series Cedric's Barber Battle and a new cycle of Whose Line Is It Anyway?. As for actual dates, iZombie makes its series debut on Tuesday, March 17 at 9:00pm ET, following an all-new episode of The Flash. Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time) stars as Olivia "Liv" Moore. As a result of the move, Supernatural returns to Wednesdays, beginning March 18 at 9:00pm ET, the week after The 100 concludes its second season on Wednesday, March 11. On Friday, April 10, The CW presents the series premiere of its apocalyptic new drama The Messengers at 9:00pm ET. That same night, The CW will debut its new reality competition series Cedric's Barber Battle at 8:00pm ET, hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, followed by a brand new season of the hit improv comedy series Whose Line Is It Anyway? at 8:30pm ET. The CW has not announced when the return of Beauty & the Beast will be yet.

And finally, The CW Network has picked up eight of its current series for the 2015-2016 season. Those series are: Arrow (Season 4), Jane the Virgin (Season 2), Reign (Season 3), Supernatural (Season 11), The 100 (Season 3), The Flash (Season 2), The Originals (Season 3), and The Vampire Diaries (Season 7). Specific premiere dates for each series will be announced at a later time. Stay with us later this year during upfront season. CBS will be up today at the TCA Winter 2015 press tour. Stay tuned for updates. After a TCA Day break on Tuesday, ABC will go on Wednesday, NBC cable on Thursday, NBC itself on Friday, Fox on Saturday and FX will go on Sunday.
