‘s final season will begin Thursday, June 2 at 9 pm.
Here’s a full rundown of premieres and finales over the next few months:
Which announcement has you the most jazzed? Drop a comment with your thoughts below.
First thought why doesn’t The CW have a 10pm. I think this is getting incredibly silly. Second Thought is that Reign needs to be banished to summer. Third thought I don’t think anybody believes that containment will get a second season.
If you’re sour on Containment, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you see (assuming you give it a chance).
In all honesty, from what I’ve seen of Containment, it looks a little too good for the CW. I’m worried it won’t do well, because it isn’t on a better network. Granted, I have only seen a small clip. I agree with the CW not having a 10pm slot. Back when it was the WB it made sense. Now, they really need to create a later slot. I also agree with your Reign comment.
Darling it’s getting the plumb post-Flash slot. If CW wanted it dead, it would’ve landed Friday slot.
Vince it’s also WB in a field of good performing WB shows & WB likley renewd like TO for syndication,Ntflix and VD likley to get a final season.Premirig ashow ust before May in usually a death sentence.Plus,CW said its “limited serires event”-sound one and done.They can’t premire it on Fri due toFi already being full.Only reason it got a good timeslot/leadin was cause IZombie has limited episodes.
No Flash is CW’s no. 1 show. You don’t waste that kind of lead-in on a burn-off. If ratings is good,it’ll get renewed.
CW only promotes one new midseason show and this season,that’s LoT.Containments notcoverdd by the Netflix deal and by the time it premires ,CW will have already decided on pilots and renewals/cancellations.Plus,the pilot was laughed at at CC & had to be redone-not a good sign.99% of shows premiering in Mid to late are done with no expectation to renew.CW has a full enough schedule with enough renewable shows so no room for Containment and they have to cancel something.Also,the inky reason it didn’t go Fri is cause 1.Fri are full2.It was incompatible with Jane so putting it in CEG slot was out ,the only other slot that woukd be open was post Flash since Izombie has a limited/shorter season.It’s Onky getting Flash leadin for like 3 episodes,no big deal.
Has to do with many of the local affiliates the CW runs on having very lucrative 10 pm news shows….. that the affiliates would not want to give up.
I don’t think they have the resources to open up 5 extra new shows.
Same reason why Fox doesn’t program 10pm weeknights.
That’s what they said about The 100 too.
Why does Reign need to be banished to summer? It’s been fantastic this season and is a high quality show.
I think if they put a show at the 10 pm slot, it will have 0.0something ratings
Lol, Fox, a much older network with much higher overall ratings than the CW, doesn’t program 10pm. It’s very naive to say that not programming that hour is silly. The fact is, affiliates don’t want to give up that hour because they can make way more money with different programming then. The CW can barely handle the hours the ten hours it currently programs. The thought of them trying to add the 10pm slot is incredibly silly.
Totally pumped abt CW’s #BatB Beauty and the Beast!!!!! It’s the best tv show!!!!
Putting Reign on Monday will likely seal it’s fate in my house. That night is already very full unless some of the shows end before April 25th.
Wonder how many episodes of Reign and Containment will air into the summer? I’m surprised Reign wasn’t completely held off until the summer or why Containment isn’t airing earlier in the season to utilize more new episodes of The Flash as a lead in..
Because IZombie is paired with The Flash all season. Season finale of the Flash isn’t until April 12. No room to air in 19th.
I kind of really love reign? It makes me angry as a history buff but as a cheesy drama lover I’m invested. If only Kenna would come back.
Reign is awesome it is definitely a great solution to my Spartacus fix. Banish it never!!!
What?!?! Spartacus is one thousand times better than Reign ever will be. There is absolutely no comparison.
I really hope Containment surprises everyone and is really good.
