CW Announces 2016 – 2017 Fall Schedule – The Originals Moved to Mid-Season


Some disappointing news today. The CW announced their 2016 – 2017 Fall Schedule and The Originals was nowhere to be seen. Turns out a decision has been made to push the show to a mid-season premiere next season, also meaning the show will receive a shorter number of episodes. Their parent show The Vampire Diaries will premiere in the Fall on Fridays as normal, but we still do not have a confirmation as to how many episodes have been ordered, so hopefully more information will be announced soon. Either way, I’m glad both shows are returning, and can’t wait to see what the producers have in store for us! Bring it!


Ruthie took her passion for The Vampire Diaries books and started Vampire Diaries Online in February 2009. After 8 years online, she continues to engage with fellow TVD fans there and on Twitter, sharing in the love of The Vampire Diaries, and new spin-off The Originals.


  1. I read somewhere there was only going to be ten episodes when it returns in April 2017 if this is correct then I’m f’en disappointed as my friends and I hang out for it each and every week. You can’t let this happen 😡😡😡😡

  2. I’m hoping it will be more like 13 or 16, and there hasn’t been anything officially announced yet. So this April rumor is just that…a rumor.

    • Hi Steve, unfortunately The Originals doesn’t air on any Canadian channels anymore. But if you have The CW you can watch on that channel, Fridays at 8/7c.
