There used to be a time when shows on television would simply go into reruns for the holidays. Usually that two week time between Christmas and New Year’s because they believe people are out doing something. Now, it seems that networks are going with mid-season finales to make things seem bigger and better for that nearly month period between episodes.
The CW will be wrapping up their mid-season finales this week and there is already a push to remind their viewers that the shows will be coming back in January. As well as the introduction of some new series like Legends of Tomorrow, as you can see below:
In case you cannot read the image that the CW released, here’s the breakdown:
Reign returns on January 8. After three weeks, that show will give way to The Vampire Diaries.
iZombie returns on January 12.
The Flash returns January 19.
Arrow and Supernatural return on January 20.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow premieres and The 100 returns on January 21.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin return on January 25.
The Vampire Diaries and The Originals return on January 29.
With this break, I have some time to catch up on some of the shows I missed.
