The CW has set its premiere dates for fall, including the debut of a sixth night of primetime programming on Sundays.

That Sunday lineup of “Supergirl” and a remake of “Charmed” will debut Oct. 14. As usual, the network will roll out its schedule a couple of weeks into the season.

The CW will prime the Sunday pump with the first night of the “iHeartRadio Music Festival” on Oct. 7. Night two follows on Oct. 8, and then the regular schedule begins Tuesday, Oct. 9 with “The Flash” and “Black Lightning.”
