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

Crooner and Tell Me a Story will both premiere earlier than planned. Instead of debuting the fall, the Canadian series and the CBS All Access show will launch Wednesday, August 5 and Tuesday, July 28, respectively. Both will air at 9/8c. 

UK comedy will debut on Tuesday, August 18 at 8/7c. Additionally, The CW acquired four reality shows to fill out the summer lineup including Killer Camp, Being Reuben, Taskmaster, and Fridge Wars. 

 

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:

Sunday

  • 8/7c pm: Two Sentence Horror Stories
  • 9/8c pm: Pandora

Monday:

  • 8/7c: Whose Line Is It Anyway? (two episodes)

All scripted dramas including RiverdaleNancy DrewBatwomanLegacies, 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.

Javicia Leslie makes her debut as 'Batwoman' - Check out the Batsuit!

2020 is getting the Batwoman it deserves. 

The CW released two first looks at the redesigned Batwoman suit!

Following the exit of Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane, God Friended Me star Javicia Leslie will be suiting up as Ryan Wilder. 

According to TVLine, by the third episode of season 2, Wilder will put on the new Batsuit to send a message to Gotham that a new hero arrived. 

Who Is Ryan Wilder? ‘Batwoman’ Season 2 May Cast New Character in Superhero Role Following Ruby Rose’s Exit

The transition is exciting because Leslie will become the first-ever Black Batwoman! 

Leslie stated: “I love the fact that Ryan is becoming her own Batwoman — it’s her style, her swag, and her moment! It was an honor to be able to collaborate with Caroline and Maya. I felt it was important that viewers could tell by the silhouette that Batwoman was a Black girl. With the form-fitting suit and beautiful Afro, we definitely nailed it!”

Selena The Series Trailer Ahead of the November Premiere

Lights, camera, action, and a little bit of bidi bidi bom bom!

The wait for Netflix’s Selena Quintanilla-Pérez bio-series titled Selena: The Series is finally over. 

The streamer released the full-length trailer for the series. Since it will be split into two parts (six episodes each), part 1 will drop on Friday, December 4. 

Here’s the synopsis for the show: “Before she became the Queen of Tejano music, Selena Quintanilla (played by Christian Serratos) was a young girl from Texas with big dreams and an even bigger voice. The series explores her journey from singing small gigs to becoming the most successful female Latin artist of all time — and the years of hard work and sacrifice the Quintanilla family navigated together.”

Selena’s life was tragically cut short at 23, however, the series focuses on her rise to fame and how it affected her life and her family dynamic. 

CraveYouTV chatted with Madison Taylor Baez, who plays young Selena, earlier this year. Check out the interview right HERE

Ricardo Chavira (Desperate Housewives), Gabriel Chavarria (The Purge), Noemi Gonzalez (The Young and the Restless), and Seidy Lopez (Training Day) will be starring as the rest of the Quintanilla family.
