It looks like it’s back to business as usual for The CW’s Fall 2021-2022 season.

The network has set its premiere dates for the beginning in October (instead of January, which was what they did this past season, as a result of pandemic-related production shutdowns). It all begins with the return of the long-running Penn & Teller: Fool Us on Friday, October 1, and continues with the net’s first-ever Saturday primetime programming with the iHeartRadio Musical Festival (airing before the regularly scheduled Whose Line Is It Anyway? and World’s Funniest Animals).
