NOTES: The CW Network will launch its seven-night 2023-24 primetime schedule in the Fall of 2023 with a strategic mix of new and returning original scripted series and exciting new alternative programming, it was announced today by Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment, The CW Network.

The CW Network has partnered with Entertainment One (eOne) on the original drama series The Spencer Sisters starring Lea Thompson (Back to the Future, Caroline in the City) and Stacey Farber (Superman & Lois, Schitt's Creek) as a mother and daughter duo who join forces to start a private detective agency.

This midseason, The CW will once again be the home to the renowned Critics Choice Awards airing on Sunday, January 14, 2024. Midseason will also feature the Season 4 premiere of Walker, the network's most-watched linear series in Total Viewers, and the series premiere of the highly-anticipated unscripted spinoff FGirl Island.

The CW Network unveiled details of upcoming original scripted productions and premium unscripted series set to premiere on the network in 2024.

Scripted series currently in production include Joan, an exhilarating six-part co-production between The CW Network and ITVX starring Emmy® award nominee Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, The Staircase) as notorious jewel thief Joan Hannington, and The Librarians: The Next Chapter, a brand-new spinoff of the wildly successful fantasy adventure series The Librarians from writer and executive producer Dean Devlin (Leverage, Independence Day). Additionally, The CW Network will be home to the global hit eco-thriller The Swarm from Game of Thrones executive producer Frank Doelger about an unknown enemy that lives deep below the sea.

Unscripted series currently in production include Patti Stanger: Millionaire Matchmaking (working title), which follows the legendary matchmaker as she helps dating-challenged singles find their ideal mate, The Force (working title) executive produced by Jersey Shore creator SallyAnne Salsano, which takes viewers for an adrenaline-filled adventure alongside members of law enforcement, and The Great American Bakeover (working title), which gives much-needed bakeovers to struggling small-town bakeries.

Premiere dates and times for these series will be announced at a later date. These production titles are in addition to the more than two dozen new series currently in various stages of development at the network.
