Supernatural is moving to a new night again! The CW announced its mid-season schedule, shortly before announcing that all its fall shows have been renewed for the 2015-2016 season. It has been mixed news for fans of the veteran CW show.
The Winchester brothers will return to Wednesday nights from March 18, 2015. Until then, it will remain on Tuesday nights airing directly after DC Comic adaptation The Flash. Instead, it will follow Arrow again, which some fans view as a good thing.
For those who are fans of The 100, there is no need to worry. The show will end its second season by March 18, with the finale airing the week before. Supernatural is simply replacing the gap left ready for the summer lineup.
This is not the first time Supernatural has changed nights. In fact, it is a show that has switched nights more times than most others currently on the CW network. It has aired on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays throughout its 10 season run. However, those changes have not bothered the main fans, who have tuned in each week to find out what the Winchester brothers will get up to next.
Friday nights seems to have been the worst for the show, but Friday nights is notoriously bad for TV shows. That is the night most channels will air reality shows or reruns due to the low viewer base. The CW only allowed the veteran show to air on Fridays for a season, before switching back to the mid-week spots.
Supernatural is moving to a new night again, and many fans would like to know more. It is all for the preparation of the summer lineup, which starts from March 18 once The 100 comes to an end.
iZombie is coming to the CW channel the same week as the night change. This is the highly anticipated summer show from Veronica Mars executive producer Rob Thomas. The show follows Olivia “Liv” Moore (Rose McIver) as she follows her path of becoming a doctor, until one night when she is turned into a zombie. She has to learn how to control her urge for human brains, while working in a coroner’s office in Seattle.
As she consumes the brains of the unknown bodies that come into the morgue, Liv realizes that she is retaining some of the memories. She starts to view the murders of victims from their points of view, and needs to help solve those murders. The show appears to be a mixture of Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries with Tru Calling by adding the undead element with the murder victim part.
While iZombie has been given a favorable night, another new show coming to the channel has not been so lucky. The Messengers has been given Friday nights for its series premiere, and is a new apocalyptic drama to replace The 100 after it concludes for its current season. The show involves five strangers who wake up after a pulse. They all have magical gifts, and find out about a person called The Man. It is up to the five strangers to prevent the Rapture from occurring.
However, the new shows have meant disruption for fans of some current shows. Supernatural fans have been disrupted again as the show moves to a new night one more time.
