The CW’s upfronts 2019-20 – a rundown and clips from the new shows: Batwoman, Nancy Drew and Katy Keene

All through ‘upfronts’ week, TMINE will be revealing the new shows that are going to be hitting US TV screens from September 2019

It’s that time of year again – the ‘upfronts’. What’s that, I hear you ask?

What are the upfronts, TMINE?

It’s when all the US networks reveal to advertisers the new shows that are going to be hitting the TV screens some time from September 2019 through to nowish 2020. However, this isn’t the same as the international screenings, where buyers from TV networks around the world turn up to see what they’d like to acquire, so we won’t know what will be heading our way for quite some time.

This weekend, US TV networks killed off a whole bunch of existing shows (prompting howls of protest from their fans) and are about to commission a whole bunch of new shows (prompting howls of ‘you cancelled x for this rubbish?’ from said-same fans).

6. The CW’s upfronts

As is traditional, The CW is the last entry in upfronts week. That’s partly because it’s the smallest of the networks and didn’t even have programming seven nights a week until last year. But it’s also because it’s basically just an advert for shows made by CBS and Warner Bros, so naturally has to come after CBS’s upfronts session, just as Freeform’s doesn’t come before ABC’s.

Last year, as The CW was raring up to add an extra night of programming to its line-up, it commissioned a whole bunch of new shows to fill the schedule:

This year, it has a whole set of long-running shows about to retire, including iZombie, Supernatural and Arrow, so has taken the unusual and not especially brave step of renewing every single one of its other shows, so as to not leave any gaps. That means all it has to do this year is find replacements for the retirees and to do that, it’s gone to existing IP, rather than be too innovative.

Coming in the autumn, we therefore have:

  • Batwoman
  • Nancy Drew

And in mid-season:

  • Katy Keene

Want to know more and exactly when these (and the surviving old shows) will be airing? And do you want to get TMINE’s hottest of hot first takes? Follow me after the jump if at least one of those things interests you…
