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: 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.
‘The Bold Type’ Announces Final Season Premiere Date
Mandatory meeting in the fashion closet.
The Bold Type previously announced that its fifth season will be its last, and now, we have a premiere date!
Freeform announced the series will return on Wednesday, May 26!
— The Bold Type (@TheBoldTypeTV) April 8, 2021
Per the synopsis, Kat, Jane, and Sutton are “on the brink of defining who they really are and how best to leave their mark on the world.”
Season 4 ended prematurely on July 16, 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As a refresher, the season ended with Sutton and Richard splitting, Kat hooking up with Eva despite the two sharing significantly different political views and then calling things off, and Jane challenging Jacqueline on a controversial story that involved her husband while also possibly crushing on one of her writers.
The upcoming final season will be miniature in size as it will only feature six episodes.
Younger Season 7 Trailer: Does Liza Have a New Man in Her Life?
Younger is ready to turn the final page!
Ahead of the seventh and final season, Paramount+ released a lengthy two-minute trailer that gives fans a glimpse of how it all ends.
The clip opens with a flashback to Charles (Peter Hermann) asking Liza (Sutton Foster) to marry him during the season 6 finale.
But, of course, it’s unclear if Liza accepted the proposal as the next scene finds her ex, Josh (Nico Tortorella), and her friend, Lauren (Molly Kate Bernard), wondering if she said yes.
News of the possible engagement spreads fast as Liza’s bestie, Kelsey (Hilary Duff), informs her that she “just heard the news,” while her other bestie, Maggie (Debi Mazar), laments that she’s “impressed” with Charles.
However, Liza doesn’t seem to think the proposal was all that romantic, which leads me to believe that maybe the couple isn’t headed down the aisle anytime soon.
Especially because the rest of the trailer seems to show trouble in paradise!
And this time, it may not be Josh’s fault… though, one scene does show him asking Liza: “if I would have said something sooner, would it have made a difference?”
Liza’s always struggled to choose between Charles and Josh, however, there may be a new man taking up residence in Liza’s life: surf legend Kai Manning, who is shopping a book at Empirical/Millennial.
And while there’s a scene of Liza and Charles kissing underneath the fireworks, there’s also some tension as he informs her that he “had to bend a lot” to be with her.
Tension also builds as it looks like Quinn is moving in on Liza’s man and Charles may be entertaining the idea!
New relationships seem to be on the horizon as Josh is spotted with a new woman by his side as his baby momma, Claire, returns.
Maggie is also smitten with a woman named Camila.
And elsewhere, Kelsey contemplates her future asking Lauren if she should “go back to Millennial,” before informing Quinn of her decision, which the billionaire calls “running home to daddy.”
‘Younger’ Announces Final Season Premiere Date, Loses Two Series Regulars
It’s the beginning of the end for Liza, Kelsey, and Empirical!
Paramount Plus announced that the seventh and final season of Younger will premiere on Thursday, April 15!
The first four episodes will be available for streaming on that day.
The final eight episodes will be released on a weekly basis every Thursday.
Those who don’t have access to Paramount Plus will be able to see the full season later in the year on TV Land.
It was also announced that Miriam Shor (the impeccable Diana Trout) and Charles Michael Davis (Zane Anders) will no longer be series regulars.
Per TV Line, the duo will be back in a recurring capacity.
“Due to scheduling and Covid related matters, Miriam Shor and Charles Michael Davis were unable to be season seven cast regulars,” series creator Darren Star said in a statement to the news outlet.
“However, they will always be a much loved and integral part of the Younger family and have added so much heart and soul to the series.”
Production for the final season was delayed significantly due to the coronavirus pandemic.
