The CW has released first-look teasers for all four of its new shows coming in the 2017-18 season.
“Dynasty,” the reboot of the 1980s primetime soap starring Joan Collins, will be paired with “Riverdale” on Wednesday nights.
Military drama “Valor,” starring The CW mainstay Matt Barr, will air on Mondays, after “Supergirl.”
DC comic book adaptation “Black Lightning” is being held for midseason, as is dramedy “Life Sentence” starring Lucy Hale.
“Next season we have four new scripted series, continuing our mission of adding more original programming to schedule all year long,” CW president Mark Pedowitz said in a statement before the network’s upfront presentation. “In the fall, we have the action-packed new military drama ‘Valor,’ and a new version of the iconic soap ‘Dynasty,’ giving us two new female-focused series that add more balance to our primetime lineup.
“For midseason, we have the heartwarming comedy ‘Life Sentence,’ starring Lucy Hale, a terrific actress; and we have the exciting new series ‘Black Lightning,’ based on the DC character. Next season, we will have our strongest schedule ever, with a broad range of series to appeal to both women and men, across a wide range of demographics. And we will continue to provide our advertisers new opportunities to reach our audience, the youngest of any broadcaster, on every platform.”
