The CW Announces Fall Premiere Dates and We Update Our Fall Schedule

The CW is on our Shiny list because they will be airing four of OUR kind of shows – five if you include spy-fi Nikita – this fall. We’re not overly excited about how long we’ll have to wait for them, however. The first of them, Supernatural, won’t be premiering its 8th season until October 3rd, and the rest come after that. Argh.

But that’s okay, we’re still getting them, and that’s the main thing. Arrow will premiere Wednesday, October 10; The Vampire Diaries returns the next day, October 11, followed by the series premiere of Beauty and the Beast. Nikita returns on October 19.
