CW Supernatural Back and to the Future

The CW is looking ahead… to the end in some cases.  Two stalwart shows are leaving the network in the coming months, and now we know when to look for them.  The CW will say goodbye to ‘Arrow’ on Tuesday, January 28, during a two-hour event.  At 8pm, the network will air a one-hour “finale preview” special, followed by the finale itself at 9pm.

‘Supernatural’ will move over to Monday nights, at 8pm EST, starting on March 16.  It will lead into Season 2 of ‘Roswell, New Mexico’ which will air at 9pm.  The series finale of ‘Supernatural’ will air on Monday, May 18.

The CW has announced that ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ will return on Tuesday, January 21, at 8pm.  That’s one week before the ‘Arrow’ finale.  That makes it sound like the first new episode of ‘Legends’ will air, only for the series to be preempted in its second week for the ‘Arrow’ finale, which is… odd.  (If that changes, we’ll let you know.)

‘Riverdale’ spin-off ‘Katy Keene’ will debut on Thursday, February 6, at 8pm.

The current seasons of ‘All American’ and ‘Black Lightning’ will wrap up on Monday, March 9, with their finales.  The CW has not yet scheduled the premiers of ‘In the Dark’ and ‘The 100’.

It’s a little strange that ‘Arrow’ is getting a farewell special, but ‘Supernatural’ isn’t.  ‘Arrow’ is ending after eight seasons, but ‘Supernatural’ is leaving after 15!  True, ‘Arrow’ has helped redefine the network, spawning a whole block of programing– ‘The Flash’, ‘Legends of Tomorrow’, ‘Supergirl’, ‘Batwoman’, and indirectly, ‘Black Lightning’.  But ‘Supernatural’ has been the workhorse of the network for a decade and a half.

What do you think about the final seasons of ‘Arrow’ and ‘Supernatural’ so far?
