Update 6/16: The CW has moved up two premiere dates to earlier in the summer!

Original Post 5/14:
The coronavirus pandemic has affected the television landscape more than we’d like to admit.
Since mid-March, most TV show productions have been shuttered due to the outbreak, and with things so uncertain, it’s unclear when shows will begin filming again.
Naturally, this affects the upcoming season.
Many networks have been improvising with FOX revealing a 2020-2021 lineup that revolves heavily around NFL (pending the season returns on time) and animated shows.
Now, The CW has made a bold move and unveiled their fall 2020-2021 schedule, which reveals that most of its scripted dramas will be pushed back until the spring 2021 TV season.
The network is filling the schedule with completed series’ and streaming shows like Swamp Thing and Tell Me a Story, acquired from DC Universe and CBS All Access, respectively, to fill in the gaps. International shows Dead Pixels and Coroner will also fill out the schedule.
The only new series airing will be the final episodes, which were finalized prior to COVID-19, of Supernatural.
Peep the [updated in late June] schedule below:
- 8/7c pm: Two Sentence Horror Stories
- 9/8c pm: Pandora
- 8/7c: Whose Line Is It Anyway? (two episodes)
- 9/8c: Penn & Teller: Fool Us
- 8/7c: Swamp Thing
- 9/8c: Tell Me a Story
- 8/7c pm: Devils (Patrick Dempsey drama)
- 9 pm: Coroner
- 8/7c: Supernatural (final season)
- 9/8c: The Outpost
- 8/7c pm: Masters of Illusion
- 9/8c pm: World’s Funniest Animals
All scripted dramas including Riverdale, Nancy Drew, Batwoman, Legacies, and more will be held until January 2021. This include new series orders for Superman and Louis and Jared Padelecki’s Walker, Texas Ranger spinoff.
Check out that schedule below:
- 8/7c: Batwoman
- 9/8c: Charmed
- 8/7c: All American
- 9/8c: Black Lightning
- 8/7c: The Flash
- 9/8c: Superman & Lois

- 9/8c: Nancy Drew
- 8/7c: Walker
- 9/8c: Legacies
- 8/7c: Penn and Teller: Fool Us
- 9/8c: Whose Line Is It Anyway?
The Arrowverse spinoff Green Arrow and the Canaries and an untitled The 100 prequel are awaiting a decision.
The CW also ordered the Kung Fu reboot and The Republic of Sarah.
WATCH: ‘YOU’ Season 3 Trailer Proves Joe and Love Are More Dangerous Than Ever
Can Joe and Love be the “nice, normal neighbors” in a “soulless suburb”?
You can probably answer that question without watching the new trailer for YOU season 3, but in case you can’t, the answer is absolutely not.
The murderous couple, now parents to a baby boy, are back to their old ways.
As Joe develops a new female obsession, Love gets jealous, and couple’s therapy… well, that doesn’t seem to work all that well for them.
As the killing commences — and their impulses take over — it seems as though the cops are hot on their trail.
Check out the trailer below! It’s all worth it solely for that final scene of Love and Joe burying a body of one of their victims as their adorable bundle of joy sits safely in his carseat and coos on.
The new season of YOU drops on Netflix on Friday, October 15.
This Is the One Celebrity Jennifer Aniston & Reese Witherspoon Want to Interview on ‘The Morning Show’
Filming The Morning Show is a lot harder than it looks.
Read the full post HERE!
As Witherspoon exclusively explained during E! News’ Daily Popon Sept. 15, she does not envy “having to tell the good news and the bad news at the same time,” onscreen. “It’s just a lot,” Witherspoon summed up.
Aniston added, “The hours that you have to live, the morning, the information you constantly have to take into your brain on a daily basis…We get to shut off the news and say, ‘I need a break for the next couple of days.'”
The two co-stars portray rival anchors on a fictional news show in the second season of the critically-acclaimed series, returning Friday, Sept. 17. And, fans can expect season two of The Morning Show to be just as riveting as the award-winning first season.
“We were worried about that because season one was such sort of a perfect little art installation in and of itself,” Aniston revealed. “That was not an easy task to sort of drum up, where do we go from here?”
Witherspoon teased, “We worked really hard and I think we did it. There’s good stuff.”
So, what would be their dream morning news segment to film? According to Aniston, a “meta” interview with Julia Roberts would be fun to shoot.
Meanwhile, Witherspoon is ready to hit the bar behind the news desk. “I think we do a scene where we do it when we’ve had four glasses of wine and then interview celebrities,” she quipped.
Aniston adorably agreed: “I’m so in. Sort of like a Hoda [Kotb] and Kathy Lee [Gifford]? Yeah, I’m into it.”
Watch the adorable interview above to hear why co-star Billy Crudup thinks producers Witherspoon and Aniston are “formidable” inspirations!
The Morning Show season two premieres Friday, Sept. 17 on AppleTV+.
Has ‘The Bachelor’ Season 26 Found Its Leading Man Already?
ABC may have found its leading man for the upcoming season of The Bachelor.
Clayton Echard has been announced as the lead for season 26, according to Variety.
However, if you’re not familiar with the name, you aren’t the only one.
The outlet reports that Bachelor Nation hasn’t met him yet because he’s part of Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, which premieres on October 19.
Clearly, that means Echard did not find love with Young, but the franchise saw something in him that compelled them to cast him in the role before audiences were even able to weigh in.
The outlet notes producers fell in love with the 28-year-old from Missouri and tapped him for the upcoming season.
No official confirmation has been made by ABC, and it likely won’t be until later this year after Young’s season is underway.
However, Variety is reporting the news based on confirmation from multiple sources.
While there’s no premiere date for the upcoming season, The Bachelor typically premieres in January.
