The CW has been the home of a large chunk of DC Comics‘ television universe, and that arrangement has been a great fit for the network. The combined power of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends Of Tomorrow has been a real win for them, pulling in fans that had dismissed the network as just for teens. Executive producer Greg Berlanti will also be adding a fifth DC property to the network (although it will not be a part of the official Arrowverse and will most likely not be a part of the crossovers), with Black Lightning, starring Cress Williams an electricity controlling vigilante working to keep the streets of New Orleans safe, being added to the midseason schedule. While Supergirl, The Flash, and Legends will be staying in their regular spots, Arrow will be moving to Thursdays to air after Supernatural, which is entering its thirteenth season of demon hunting.

In terms of new programming, the reboot of the classic soap Dynasty will be joining Riverdale on Wednesday nights. The CW found a surprise hit with its darker take on the Archie comics, so a new take on an older property will add to the drama that has long defined the network. The original Dynasty, along with Everwood, will also be added to the CW Seed app for the binge watchers. Finally, Valor, a new drama about an elite team of U.S. Army helicopter pilots, will aid after Supergirl on Mondays, creating an action packed block to start out the week.
