Of The CW's new and returning series, only Supernatural is scheduled to air this fall with its delayed final episodes. Instead, The CW is planning its 2020-21 season kickoff in January because of the coronavirus shutdown delay. "Of course, for original scripted series we do not have an exact return of production yet," The CW president Mark Pedowitz told reporters. "We are going with this strategy to give producers and studios ample time to get back up and running in the best and safest way possible. Strategy and protocols are still being developed. What other broadcasters do is up to them. For The CW, this is right for us." The network has five episodes of Supernatural already filmed, with two left to go. The CW's January lineup will include the pairing of Walker, Texas Ranger reboot Walker with Legacies on Thursday nights, Superman & Lois with The Flash on Tuesday nights and the partnering of Charmed with Batwoman on Sundays. Supergirl will be held for later in the season. Meanwhile, Mondays will feature All American and Black Lightning, while Wednesdays will have Riverdale and Nancy Drew.
