Upon entering the 2017-2018 season, one would probably notice that The CW went through the least amount of schedule overhaul. Only two shows were cancelled going into the summer months, so only two shows are entering the fray. But that doesn't mean other changes haven't happened. Take a look at the whole schedule. below.

9:00-10:00 p.m. - Jane the Virgin

Since The CW only airs two scripted programs a night, there wouldn't seemingly be that much to flip around, but that above schedule is quite a difference from what we're used to. Perhaps the biggest shocker here is that one of the marquee dramas, Arrow, was uprooted from its Wednesday night home and placed on Thursday nights in a later timeslot, where it will follow Supernatural. Jane the Virgin also got moved around, as it will now air after Crazy Ex-Girlfriend on Friday nights, with its post-Supergirl timeslot going to another series. With Riverdale now leading the charge on Wednesday nights, Tuesdays are the only ones staying the same. Strange, since The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow are the ones constantly changing up timelines.

When it comes to new shows, audiences will probably flock more to the modern day reboot of classic primetime soap Dynasty, with Gossip Girl's creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage at the helm of this new take on the Carringtons and the Colbys. And on Monday nights, we'll get our first look at Matt Barr's new show Valor, which centers on a team of U.S. Army helicopter pilots in the aftermath of a mission that goes disastrous. Not at all the kind of subject matter The CW is usually putting out there, so it'll be interesting to see how it plays with audiences. Recent DC Comics pick-up Black Lightning and Lucy Hale's new drama Life Sentence will both make their premieres in the midseason.

While waiting to catch up with all the new and returning CW shows later this year, don't forget that several of them still haven't ended their current seasons. As well, don't forget to keep up with our summer premiere schedule, so you know when all the best shows are coming in the hottest months.
