The CW network announced its new 2022 schedule recently, and thanks to an expansion into Saturday nights is more packed than ever before.

We last left Team Flash on quite the high note, however, this five-episode event is set to suck the joy right out of the air as Central City and the world is once again plunged into danger. They say there’s no rest for the wicked, but it seems in the Arrowverse there’s no rest for our heroes.

For Barry in particular there’s been one crisis after another. This one will come in the form of a villain named Despero who’s traveled a long way for a mission that’ll test the heart and might of Earth’s best fighting chance at survival.

Though, even if Team Flash manages to come out of “Armageddon” unscathed, there’s still Iris’ illness to contend with which has temporarily been slowed down but will rear its head again in season 8.

Internationally, Netflix carries weekly episodes of The Flash in dozens of regions with episodes airing on Tuesday then arriving on Netflix the following Thursday.

Legends of Tomorrow (Season 7)

(Expected Netflix Release Date: April – May 2022)

For the past few years, Legends of Tomorrow has been a midseason show but for season 7, it’s returning back to its October slot. That should mean we see Netflix get episodes in a much more timely manner in the earlier parts of 2022.

DC Legends of Tomorrow is currently one of the last remaining Arrowverse shows headed into its fourth season. The series sees “an unlikely group of superheroes and villains to save the world from a powerful evil.”

The new season features the long-anticipated 100th episode which contains plenty of throwbacks from characters that have departed the show over the years. Elsewhere in season 7 of Legends of Tomorrow, the Legends are working out how to get back to their own timeline by reaching out to a scientist who has invented a new form of time travel.

Some European regions are receiving weekly drops of Legends of Tomorrow while other regions have been cut off entirely with only early seasons available.

Riverdale (Season 6)

(Expected Netflix Release Date: May 2022)

The divisive yet incredibly popular Riverdale is back for a sixth season which began airing in November just a month after season 5 wrapped. Season 6 will most likely continue on the timeline following the time jump, meaning the characters will be seven years older and living their adult lives. Other than that, we don't have too much info, but if history tells us anything, there will definitely be a new mystery to solve.

Riverdale will be notably crossing over with Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina this season.

Almost every region outside the United States receives new episodes of Riverdale on a weekly basis including countries like the United Kingdom and Canada.

Dynasty (Season 5)

(Expected Netflix Release Date: July – September 2022)

For most seasons, Dynasty has begun airing each October but although last year’s release was pushed to May, season 5 is due to begin airing in December meaning that’s two months later than its back to normal schedule. That means we’re expecting season 5 to wrap up and then come to Netflix sometime between July or September 2022.

Dynasty follows the lives of oil baron Blake Carrington's children and the elite (side note: posh) social circles they move in. The season 4 finale reveals Fallon has been shot during a showdown with Eva, but is she actually dead? This season may also focus on Alexis' future, after Adam managed to get her arrested.

Netflix internationally carries the show but no longer on a weekly basis as it did for the early seasons. Instead, most Netflix regions will receive the series at the same time as the US as stated above.

All American (Season 4)

(Expected Netflix Release Date: March – April 2022)

All American is back to its previous schedule with new episodes kicking off on The CW from October 25th. That means we expect the show to be on a similar timeline as before meaning a March to April release date is most likely.

You can also expect showrunner Nkechi Okoro Carroll to continue to cover other real-life issues, such as the Black Lives Matter movement, which was given a special episode in season three.

Outside the US, no other region of Netflix carries All American.

Charmed (Season 4)

(Expected Netflix Release Date: August – October 2022)

Charmed is moving to midseason but this year by choice it would seem. While seasons 1-2 began airing in October, season 3 was pushed back to January but for season 4, the show is pushed back even further to March.

In Season 4 of "Charmed," Mel and Maggie find their lives transformed by the death of their beloved sister, Macy. But when their grief threatens to undo the Power of Three forever, the surprising arrival of a third Charmed One (Barrett) gives them a renewed opportunity to fulfill their destinies. And this couldn't come at a better time, because a mysterious new enemy is rising in the shadows, instilling fear in every corner of the magical world. But as this new foe draws the Charmed Ones and their allies Harry (Evans) and Jordan (Donica) deeper into a twisted game, will this new trio be ready for what's to come?" By Variety.

That means that its Netflix release date will be pushed back too. Charmed is only available on Netflix in the US.

Legacies (Season 4)

(Expected Netflix Release Date: April 2022)

Legacies has returned to its October slot for the 21/22 season meaning we should see a return to the normal schedule. In the past new seasons have arrived the following April and that’s expected to follow suit.

And while the teens' personal journeys are pivotal to the story, all of the students will have to deal with the threat of the Necromancer. "The Necromancer, heading into season 3, is going to make a big play that is forever going to alter our mythology," Matthews said. That certainly sounds ominous, and like the kind of storyline that could impact Legacies in season 4 and beyond.

Despite Netflix relicensing or having access to The Vampire Diaries and The Originals internationally, Legacies has never been sold to Netflix internationally.

Roswell, New Mexico (Season 4)

(Expected Netflix Release Date: Summer to October 2022)

Sadly, it’s still very much up in the air regarding when Roswell, New Mexico will be back. It’s expected to be in the midseason as per all previous seasons but an exact day has yet to be given. Right now, all we can firmly say is that it’ll be on Netflix in October 2022 at the absolute latest but more realistically it’ll be the summer.

One of the biggest gut punches the ending of "Roswell, New Mexico" Season 3 has in store is quite easily the arrival of a mysterious new lady looking for Liz Ortecho (Jeanine Mason) in Mexico. However, the very biggest one is when said lady is put in contact with Allie, who claims to be Liz's former teacher ... and just so happens to be played by Shiri Appleby, the star of the original "Roswell."

And only Netflix US carries Roswell, New Mexico.

In the Dark (Season 4)

(Expected Netflix Release Date: Summer 2022)

As with Roswell, New Mexico there have been no firm dates set for In The Dark just yet. We’re expecting the series to return to its April start date which would mean Netflix receives the fourth season sometime in the summer.

Despite being a criminally underrated and broad appealing show, Netflix hasn’t secured the show for any region outside the US.

Two Sentence Horror Stories (Season 3)

(Expected Netflix Release Date: February – March 2022)

An unknown title within The CW’s lineup is Two Sentance Horror Stories which is the network’s equivalent of Black Mirror or American Horror Stories. The series is getting a third season which begins in January 2022 for what is expected to be 10 episodes.
