The CW Summer Schedule: Burden of Proof, The Outpost & More!

at .

It's hard to believe it, but 2018-19 TV season is winding down!

As such, it's time to look ahead to the summer months, and The CW has firmed up its slate, which includes six new series, and five returning ones.

Kristin Kreuk Burden of Proof

Burden of Truth Season 2 is first out of the gate. The Canadian legal thriller starring Kristen Kreuk will get underway Sunday, June 2.

The Sunday slot is surprising, but the network will likely be testing the waters to assess how original content performs during summer.

On a more surprising note, Supernatural will be the show's lead-out. However, the hit drama series will already have completed airing for the season, so it will be encore episodes.

Jack Regrets It - Supernatural Season 14 Episode 18

Does this mean Supernatural could be headed to Sundays during the 2019-20 TV season?


Elsewhere, Masters of Illusion will return for a new season on Friday, June 7, with two original installments.

It will be followed by two episodes of The Big Stage.

Penn & Teller: Fool Us and Whose Line Is It Anyway, meanwhile, will return to the air on Monday, June 17.

The CW Quotes

Cheryl: Ummm, did you have a lobotomy for breakfast? You’re wearing my signature color!
Toni: You don’t own the color red. Red existed before you.
Cheryl: Not at Riverdale High. Here, I invented red. I am red.
[Cheryl snaps her fingers and two girls stand behind her]
Cheryl: Sorry, but this school is not big enough for the both of us, faux-pink lady. And I was here first. Go to Centerville High or Westerberg, I don’t care. But you have until first bell Monday to clear every trace of yourself out of these halls. Copy?
[Cheryl flips her hair in Toni’s face and walks away]

Your name may be “Honey,” but I will always be the queen bee. You have no power over me.
