Don’t worry, The CW isn’t going to run out of content anytime soon.
There’s no shortage of programming coming to the network in the fall of 2020 even if it won’t technically be all-new programming.
The network has acquired rights to plenty of shows that have already aired one or two seasons. It may be an unusual move, but it makes sense considering the network isn’t sure when production on new shows and seasons will pick up. The coronavirus pandemic shuttered production on nearly every series back in March.
With its new strategy, The CW is adding to their Arrowverse roster after acquiring Swamp Thing, DC Universe’s one-season comic book adaptation. The series wrapped its 10-episode run in August. It focuses on Dr. Abby Arcane as she investigated a swamp-born virus.
Shortly after CBS All Access canceled Tell Me a Story, a dark fairytale anthology starring The Vampire Diaries‘ Paul Wesley and produced by TVD’s Kevin Williamson, The CW snatched it right up. So, if you haven’t gotten around to binge-watching yet, don’t worry, both seasons will be available!
Oversees content wasn’t overlooked as CBC’s drama Coroner, about a coroner who investigates suspicious deaths in Toronto, was picked up.
The UK’s six-episode first season of Dead Pixels will also become part of The CW’s roster. It focuses on characters obsessed with an online fantasy game.
The network is also investing in two new shows — Kung Fu and The Republic of Sarah, per TV Line — in addition to the already greenlit Supergirl spinoff, Superman & Lois, and Jared Padalecki’s reboot of Walker, Texas Ranger.
All four shows will debut on the network’s fall 2020-2021 schedule.
Kung Fu, a reboot, stars Legacies actress Olivia Liang about a Chinese American woman who drops out of college and joins a monastery.
The synopsis reads: But when she returns to find her hometown overrun with crime and corruption, she uses her martial arts skills and Shaolin values to protect her community and bring criminals to justice… all while searching for the assassin who killed her Shaolin mentor and is now targeting her.”
Stella Baker will star as high school teacher Sarah Cooper in The Republic of Sarah, who tries to get independence for her small town from a mining company.
The synopsis reads: “Now Sarah must lead a young group of misfits as they attempt to start their own country from scratch.”
The network did not reveal premiere dates for any of the shows.
Arrowverse spinoff Green Arrow and the Canaries is still awaiting a decision.
‘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.
