The CW Sets January Premiere Dates for 'Legends of Tomorrow' & 'The 100'

Hours after ordering additional episodes of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and iZombie, The CW has made an even bigger announcement regarding its midseason lineup. Legends of Tomorrow, the spinoff of Arrow and The Flash, and the third season of The 100 will premiere on Thursday, January 21 starting at 8/7c.

In Legends of Tomorrow, when heroes alone are not enough, the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat - one in which not only the planet is at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?

Legends of Tomorrow stars Victor Garber, Brandon Routh, Arthur Darvill, Caity Lotz, Ciara Renee, Franz Drameh, Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller.

Based on the character from DC Comics, the drama is from Bonanza Productions, Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Executive producers are Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg, Phil Klemmer, Chris Fedak and Sarah Schechter.

For two seasons, the refugees of The 100 sent to Earth have been at war. First with themselves, then with the Grounders, and finally with Mount Weather. Many have lost their lives along the way. All have lost their innocence. They have learned the hard way that in the fight for survival, there are no heroes and no villains. There is only the living and the dead. But now, the war is over. The battle against Mount Weather has been won. The prisoners have returned home to a world seemingly at peace, but can they find peace within themselves after what they had to do to escape? And is there more to life than just surviving? Unfortunately, their newfound sense of normalcy will be short-lived, and their lives will be changed forever, as threats both old and new test their loyalties, push them past their limits, and make them question what it truly means to be human. First, they fought to survive. Then, they fought for their friends. Now, they will fight for the human race.

Series regulars for the third season include Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco, Marie Avgeropoulos, Bob Morley, Christopher Larkin, Devon Bostick, Lindsey Morgan, Ricky Whittle, Richard Harmn, Isaiah Washington and Henry Ian Cusick.

Based on the book series by Kass Morgan, The 100 is from Bonanza Productions, Inc. in association with Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios. Executive producers are Jason Rothenberg and Leslie Morgenstein.

Starting January 29, the Salvatore brothers and the First Family of vampires head to Friday nights to kick off the weekend with two hours of high-stakes drama, with The Vampire Diaries at 8/7c. followed by The Originals at 9/8c. 

Reign will have its winter finale on Friday, January 22 at 8/7c. and return later in the season, night and time to be announced later.
