For the upcoming 2021-22 season, The CW Network will expand its primetime schedule to include Saturday, growing to become a full seven-day-a-week broadcast network for the first time in its history, When the new season launches this fall, The CW will offer 14 hours of primetime series each week, Monday through Sunday from 8 tp 10 p.m. ET.

The CW will officially kick off its first Saturday night of primetime programming on October 2, 2021 with night one of the ‘IHeartRadio Music Festival.” The network’s regularly scheduled Saturday programming line-up will be announced at a later date.

Leading The CW’s efforts to expand into a full seven night broadcast network were Betty Ellen Berlamino, The CW’s Executive Vice President, Network Distribution, and Ann Miyagi, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, who worked closely with all of the network’s key affiliate partners to secure clearances across the country.
