The CW 2020-21 Schedule Includes ALL DC TV Shows – Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow, Black Lightning – Plus Launching Superman and Lois and Finding A New Home For Swamp Thing!
Supergirl Season 6 has become midseason series likely due to star Melissa Benoist’ pregnancy. It is joined on the midseason document with returning series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 6, Dynasty Season 4, Roswell: New Mexico Season 3 and In the Dark Season 3. Two new series are also on the midseason slate; Kung Fu Season 1 and The Republic of Sarah Season 1.
Per CW head Mark Pedowitz, Green and Arrow and the Canaries Season 1 and Riverdale spin-off Katy Keene Season 2 remain alive at the network, but have not yet been picked up. Same goes for a The 100 prequel series. Pedowitz also noted hw was a big Lost Boys fan and hoped to have it as a series on his network at some point.
Stargirl Season 2 is also expected to air on the CW, but it is a DC Universe first steaming TV show.
There will also be the traditional DC TV cross-over in 2020-21, but it will be smaller in scale than in the previous two years.
Finally, while new programming will begin in January 2021, the numbers of episodes per season on CW will remain the same; 13 episode or 22 / 24 episode commitments.
