Due to ongoing public health and safety concerns, many of The CW’s shows, like the rest of the industry, have shut down production before they finished filming their current seasons. Following the sudden production halt, the network replaced new episodes of The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, which already finished season 5, with reruns for several weeks. Also, this week, The CW will re-air the Arrowverse’s most recent crossover, “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” in place of new episodes of some of its other flagship shows.

Unfortunately, some shows weren’t addressed in The CW’s announcement. First, there’s Supernatural, which aired the last completed episodes of its final season just last week. That same week, Supernatural‘s showrunner Andrew Dabb revealed that the show has shot through episode 18, but the effects and sound departments are closed and those episodes can’t be finished at this time. Likewise, Legacies has also run through every episode that was completed before the sudden production shutdown and will likely return to finish out its current season once production resumes later this year.

New episodes of Nancy Drew air on Wednesday, April 8, while Riverdale and Katy Keene‘s new episodes air on Wednesday, April 15, and Thursday, April 16, respectively.
