Is it just us or does it feel like our favorite CW shows have been on hiatus for a lot longer than just over a month? If you miss the vampires, royals and hunters as much as we do, we’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that The CW has released its fall premiere dates. The bad news is that October is still very far away.

As it has done in past years, the network will be staggering its premieres beginning with the iHeartRadio Music Festival, which will air over two nights beginning Monday, Sept. 29 through Tuesday, Sept. 30. On Wednesday, Oct. 1, the network will air two encore episodes of Arrow that feature Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) to give viewers a taste of the upcoming new series, The Flash. On Thursday, Oct. 2, The Vampire Diaries and Reign return for their sixth and second seasons.

The following week, The Originals will premiere its second season on Monday, Oct. 6. The Flash will make its debut the following night, Oct. 7, along with the tenth season premiere of Supernatural. Arrow returns for season three on Oct. 8 and will be followed by an encore of the series premiere of The Flash.

Jane the Virgin, the network’s other new drama will premiere on Monday, Oct. 13 and there will be an encore episode on Friday, Oct. 17 airing before the season premiere of America’s Next Top Model.
