The CW Fall 2023 TV Lineup: New and Returning Shows, Schedule and More

The CW is ushering in some major changes in its fall 2023 programming lineup.

The CW

Things are changing at The CW. Now that its DCTV universe is winding down, the network has just a few original series still on deck for the fall. While The CW has renewed All American and Walker (the latter for an abbreviated return in the mid-season), there are several other shows coming to an end at the network, including Riverdale, Nancy Drew, The Flash, Stargirl, Walker: Independence, The Winchesters and Kung Fu.

Still to be determined are the fates of All American: Homecoming, Gotham Knights and Superman & Lois.

To fill in these gaps, The CW has picked up the rights to air several series that have previously appeared on other networks, including 61st Street, Son of a Critch, Sullivan's Crossing, Spencer Sisters and the I Am documentary series. The CW is also bringing back HBO Max's FBoy Island and will be delivering a new spin-off called FGirl Island.

Here's a look at what we know about The CW's fall 2023 plans so far.

Other Fall Lineups: ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC

All American for Season 6
