The CW announces Fall 2014 premiere dates, will launch season with iHeartRadio Festival

By Daniel S Levine,

The CW will kick off its 2014-2015 TV season this fall with the two-night iHeartRadio Festival event, which will give it a great platform to promote its new and returning shows. As in previous seasons, the network will kick things off in October to avoid clashing with the big four network premieres.

The iHeartRadio Festival will start on Monday, Sept. 29 at 8 p.m. and will continue the next night, the CW said in a statement. Scripted programing will officially start off with The Vampire Diaries’ return on Oct. 2, paired with the return of Reign.

The Originals will start on Oct. 6, with the highly-anticipated The Flash beginning the next day. It has been paired with Supernatural.

Since the network isn’t giving DC Comics fans their own night, Arrow will be airing on Wednesdays. However, Oct. 8 will have Arrow paired with a re-run of the Flash pilot.

The new Jane The Virgin kicks off on Oct. 13 and, finally, The 100 will be back on Oct. 22.

Here’s the schedule (new shows in bold):

Sept. 29 & 30:
