The CW 2013 Fall TV Revised Premiere Schedule Shifts The Originals, Reign And Supernatural

The CW has made a few shifts in its Fall 2013 premiere schedule, one of which affects The Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals. It looks like the network has opted to shift the spinoff's premiere date to temporarily pair it with The Vampire Diaries, which will likely give The Originals the benefit of a TVD lead-in and some added support before it moves over to Tuesday nights for its regularly scheduled night. This adjustment has moved both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals to a much earlier premiere date. Both series will debut on October 3, a week ahead of TVD's previous October 10 debut and nearly two weeks ahead of The Originals previously set October 15 debut.

Meanwhile, this shift has resulted in new series Reign getting bumped back from its original premiere date of Thursday October 10 to Thursday, October 17. Finally, Supernatural fans will be pleased to note that all of this date shuffling means that the series will return a week ahead of its previously scheduled October 15 premiere date. Here's how the new schedule breaks down.

Thursday, October 38:00-9:00 p.m. The Vampire Diaries (New Season Premiere Date)9:00-10:00 p.m. THE ORIGINALS (New Series Premiere Date)Monday, October 78:00-9:00 p.m. Hart of Dixie9:00-10:00 p.m Beauty and the BeastTuesday, October 88:00-9:00 p.m. THE ORIGINALS (Time Period Premiere)9:00-10:00 p.m. Supernatural (New Season Premiere Date)Wednesday, October 98:00-9:00 p.m. Arrow9:00-10:00 p.m. THE TOMORROW PEOPLE (Series Premiere)Thursday, October 108:00-9:00 p.m. The Vampire Diaries (Original Episode)9:00-10:00 p.m. THE ORIGINALS (Episode 2 Encore)Thursday, October 178:00-9:00 p.m. The Vampire Diaries (Original Episode)9:00-10:00 p.m. REIGN (New Series Premiere Date)FRIDAY, OCTOBER 258:00-9:00 p.m. The Carrie Diaries9:00-10:00 p.m. AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL: GUYS AND GIRLSAll Times ET
