The CW Sets Premiere Dates for iZombie, The Messengers; Moves Supernatural

at . Comments

Supernatural is on the move!

If one thing can be said about the successful series on The CW, it will live far beyond any placement on the schedule. According to the midseason plans announced today, Supernatural will be found on Wednesdays after Arrow beginning March 18.

That makes room for new series iZombie to take residence behind the highly successful freshman series The Flash beginning Tuesday, March 17. That's a nice nod of confidence in the series by Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars).


In iZombie, Rose McIver stars as Liv, an over-achieving medical student who puts off her rather sterile existence for one night that turns into a zombie feeding frenzy, changing her future forever. She tosses her hopes for a medical degree aside, takes a job in the medical examiner's office to allow her access to the brains she must consume and things get interesting when she realizes she takes on a bit of the memories of all she eats.

Finally, The Messengers, a new post-apocalyptic drama, will air on Fridays at 9/8c beginning on April 10. After a strange object plummets to earth causing a blinding explosion causing shockwaves connecting five strangers who awaken after the pulse with extraordinary gifts. There is a figure known as "The Man" who brings death wherever he goes and only the five newly christened angels of the apocalypse may be hope for humanities survival. Cheerful!

The CW Quotes

Veronica: What the hell is a "Sticky Maple"?
Kevin: It's kinda what it sounds like. It's a Riverdale thing.
Veronica: No, Kevin, it's a slut-shaming thing. And I'm neither a slut nor am I going to be shamed by someone named, excuse me, Chuck Clayton! Does he really think he can get away with this? Does he not know who I am?! I will cut the brakes on his supped-up phallic symbol.

What is a "Chock'lit Shoppe" and why does it sell burgers?!
