The CW set midseason premiere dates for their new dramas iZombie and The Messengers on Sunday at the Television Critics Association winter session. The network also revealed a return date for their hit series Supernatural, which will shift to a new night.

The comic book-inspired iZombie, starring Rose McIver as the overly-achieving medical student-turned zombie who eats brains and sees flashes of memories from the dead, premieres Tuesday, March 17 at 9/8c after The Flash.

Supernatural, starring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as demon hunting brothers, will return from its midseason hiatus on Wednesday, March 18 at 9/8c following Arrow. 

Finally, The Messengers, an apocalyptic drama, debuts Friday, April 10 at 9 p.m. ET after the premiere of Cedric’s Barber Battle, hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, and the return of Whose Line Is It Anyway? at 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. ET respectively.

If you were looking to find out when Beauty and the Beast returns, you’re not alone. The CW has yet to announce when the show will appear on the schedule. However, at the CW TCA panel, Mark Pedowitz did say it would be returning in late May or early June.
