The CW Network today announced dates for the series premiere of the heartfelt new comedy LIFE SENTENCE, as well as the much anticiapted returns of IZOMBIE, THE 100, and alas, much like its predecessor Vampire Diaries, THE ORIGINALS is coming to an end with its fifth and final season kicking off with its season premiere on Friday  April 20th (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT).


The new series LIFE SENTENCE, starring Lucy Hale, makes its debut Wednesday, March 7 (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT), following an all new episode of RIVERDALE (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT). DYNASTY will move to Friday nights, 8:00-9:00pm ET/PT, beginning March 9th, with the addition of Nicolette Sheridan, in hopes to gain some footing in the ratings.

TVs favorite rom-com-zom-dram IZOMBIE will return for its fourth season Monday, February 26 (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT) following DCS LEGENDS OF TOMORROW (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT) which will be sharing the same timeslot of SUPERGIRL, which has fans outraged stating “THE CW GROUNDS ‘SUPERGIRL’ IN FAVOR OF LEGENDS OF TOMORROW” .

The season finale of JANE THE VIRGIN is set for Friday, April 13 (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT).

The gritty sci-fi drama THE 100 is back for its fifth season Tuesday, April 24 (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT), following THE FLASH (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT). The season premiere of BLACK LIGHTNING will be on January 16th (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT), and the season finale will air Tuesday, April 17 (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT).

***Sadly, The CW is opting not to pick up additional episodes of military soap VALOR beyond the original 13 episodes. Although not officially canceled, The CW is awaiting its arrival to Netflix in early 2018 to see how it plays out before making any decisions.
