Get ready for some catfights!
Thursdays will still kick off with Supernatural, which will now lead into Arrow at its new 9/8c time. To make room for their unveiling, the network has relocated some of its veterans.
Speaking to reporters Thursday morning before the network's presentation to advertisers later in the day, network President Mark Pedowitz, Executive Vice President of Sales Rob Tuck and EVP of Marketing & Digital Programming Rick Haskins explained the plan for next season.
The new military drama "Valor" will take over its timeslot at 9 p.m.
After several seasons on Wednesdays, Arrow relocates and reunites with Supernatural, which "was a no-brainer move" for Pedowitz, who realized that the long-running shows could withstand the increasingly tough Thursday-night competition. "We felt it was a very different audience than "This Is Us'". "This was the best version of what we could do", he continues, citing Valor has "great heart and different feel" to other military dramas like CBS's SEAL Team and History's Six.
"Valor", about an elite unit of U.S. Army helicopter pilots whose top secret mission in Somalia goes awry, will join "Supergirl" on Monday nights.
"It has great heart, it has a great feel to it, but we will have a slightly different take". The shows, which both initially aired on Mondays, are once again paired up after insane moved to Fridays this season.
The soap will update the tale of the fabulously wealthy Colbys and Carringtons for a new generation.
Wednesday goes soapy (like Fox) with Riverdale and the Dynasty reboot with Grant Show as Blake Carrington from Gossip Girl duo Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. Pedowitz said he is "completely open" to inviting cast members from the original, such as Joan Collins, to appear on the new show. For midseason, they have the heartwarming comedy Life Sentence, starring Lucy Hale of Pretty Little Liars; and they will also launch Black Lighting, based on the DC character.
