Some of your favorite DC superheroes will be back on your screens before you know it.

The CW unveiled its premiere dates for the new season beginning in January 2021 on Thursday. Not only do we now know when Javicia Leslie will make her debut as Ryan Wilder and the new Batwoman, but we also know when Jared Padalecki will return to the CW after Supernatural wraps on November 19 in his new series, Walker, other fan-faves like All American and Riverdale return, and Superman & Lois officially join the Arrowverse.

Plus, the CW has acquired the Canadian supernatural drama Trickster, based on Eden Robinson’s best-selling novel following Jared (Joel Oulette), “an Indigenous teen struggling to keep his dysfunctional family above water, but when he starts seeing strange things — talking ravens, doppelgängers, skin monsters — his already chaotic life is turned upside down.” It also stars Crystle Lightning, Kalani Queypo, Anna Lambe, Joel Thomas Hynes, Craig Lauzon, Gail Maurice, and Georgina Lightning.

Premiere dates have not yet been announced for Supergirl (its final season), Legends of Tomorrow, Dynasty, In the Dark, Roswell, New Mexico, The Republic of Sarah, or Kung Fu.
