In desperate need for some new show content in your life? You're certainly not alone. CW18 has you covered with all-new episodes of the current lineup, specials, AND premieres that will keep spring hopping with entertainment!
Unfortunately, the outbreak of COVID-19 put television and film productions in the same boat as the rest of us, bringing shoots and post production work to a screeching halt. As previously noted in our breakdown of the return to new episodes, the question marks surrounding everything we hold near and dear have made quite a mess of the final stretch of the normal broadcast season. While the majority shows have been touched and seasons have been shortened in the aftermath, there still are fresh adventures to experience with your favorite characters over the weeks and months to come. Let's breakdown important dates to keep an eye on CW18 prime happenings! **NOTE: Some mild spoilers follow if you're not caught up to date.
It all starts with season finale of NANCY DREW on Wednesday, April 15th at 8pm. Coming off the shocking discovery of a new murder case, the Drew Crew will work their final supernatural case of season one this week after this year's musical tribute episode of RIVERDALE. Don't miss Kevin's production of Broadway hit, Hedgewick and the Angry Inch, which will take Riverdale High by storm at 7pm.
Follow Murphy and her trusty canine helper, Pretzel, step by step into the shadows starting with the season two premiere of IN THE DARK Thursday, April 16th at 8pm. Perry Mattfeld returns as a messy twenty-something who struggles on a daily basis to balance her random hook ups, her hangovers, and her drug front. She’s also blind. Murphy lives with her supportive best friend, Jess, and along with their anal-retentive boss (and sometimes friend), Felix, they run Guiding Hope, a school for guide dogs. But solving the murder of her best friend, Tyson, lands Murphy deep in the world of Chicago’s underground heroin trade when she is forced to turn Guiding Hope into a front for drug kingpin Nia Bailey. Murphy tries to wrestle herself and everyone she cares about from Nia’s grasp, but ultimately plunges them into far deeper trouble than they bargained for.
The CW Summer series from over the pond, BULLETPROOF, moves into NANCY DREW's Wednesday slot at 8pm with an encore of first series episodes to get you caught up on the adventures of Bishop and Pike in East London ahead of the stateside premiere of series 2 this summer.

The World's Finest are shutting down their coronvirus-shortened seasons as BATWOMAN and SUPERGIRL wrap for the season on May 17th starting at 7pm, paving the way for new seasons of three buzzy, female-lead series later in the week.

This new drama reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series. It focuses on the character that started creator Geoff Johns’ career as a comic book writer when he created her in 1999, lovingly inspired by his late sister who was killed in a 1996 plane crash.
