The CW Sets Summer 2018 Premiere Dates for 'Whose Line,' 'The Outpost' and More

The CW has finalized its summer schedule which includes adding two scripted shows to join The 100 and The Originals, plus a slew of returning reality franchises.

The long-running improv comedy series Whose Line Is It Anyway? will be back for season 14 Mondays at 9/8c starting June 4. It will follow the final three episodes of Supergirl, which has its season 3 finale on Monday, June 18 at 8/7c. Then on Monday, June 25, Penn and Teller: Fool Us is back for its fifth season at 8/7c.

The inspiring reality series My Last Days, hosted by Jane the Virgin's Justin Baldoni, will be back on Friday, May 25 at 8/7c. The show had a brief three-episode run in 2016 and tells the stories of people battling terminal illnesses. It's a solid partner for the first season of Lucy Hale's Life Sentence, which moves to Fridays at 9/8c and will end its season on June 15.

In addition, the magic reality series Masters of Illusion will be back for its fifth season on Friday, June 29 at 8/7c.

Finally, in July the CW will debut its two new scripted shows, pairing them with the ongoing runs of late mid-season entries. The Outpost, a fantasy adventure series about a woman with supernatural abilities seeking revenge against the mercenaries who murdered her village, will premiere Tuesday, July 10 at 8/7c, leading into the fifth season of The 100.

Kristin Kreuk, star of Smallville and Beauty and the Beast, will return to the CW in Burden of Truth, premiering Wednesday, July 11 at 8/7c leading into new episodes of the final season of The Originals. The Canadian import centers on a corporate lawyer who returns to her hometown to defend a pharmaceutical company against a group of sick girls, but she realizes she may be on the wrong side.

The CW's summer schedule gives the network four solid nights of consistent original programming throughout the break between seasons. When the CW comes back in the Fall, it will have even more real estate as it expands to Sundays as well.
