The CW has set its 2017 Winter Schedule, welcoming back returning series The 100, Reign, and The Originals early in the new year, holding iZombie until spring, moving current series to new time slots, premiering newcomer Riverdale, and setting an end date for The Vampire Diaries.

Of the network’s fall series, Frequency and No Tomorrow are not getting full season pick-ups. No Tomorrow will end its first season run on January 17 and Frequency will end January 25. Neither show has been officially cancelled. The good news is that with The CW’s new deal with Netflix, the complete seasons of both series will be available a week after the finales air. Should the shows gain an audience through the streaming service, there could still be life in them for a second season.

Also ending early in 2017 is the second season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend on February 3. With No Tomorrow ending, the network will shift Legends of Tomorrow to the post-The Flash spot on Tuesdays at 9:00 PM. This change will move Supernatural up to the 8:00 PM time slot on Thursdays with new drama Riverdale following at 9:00 PM beginning January 26.

The 100 returns on Wednesday, February 1 filling the 9:00 PM slot previously occupied by Frequency. Reign will return to Fridays beginning February 10 taking over the 9:00 PM time slot from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

The network has also set a series finale date for The Vampire Diaries — Friday, March 10. The following week, March 17, The Originals returns in the 8:00 PM slot. iZombie will return Tuesday, April 4 with back-to-back episodes before settling into its regular 9:00 PM time slot on April 11.
