Three of the most enjoyable genre shows of the 2014/2015 television year were Arrow, The Flash, and iZombie (for those who actually got to watch it), and The CW has now released the details of when each of those shows will be returning to screens in the US.

The network released the following press release:

The CW fall schedule has just been announced! The network will launch its 2015-16 season in October with the sophomore debuts of the network’s highest-rated series “The Flash” and fellow comic book adaptations “Arrow” (back for season four) and “iZombie” (returning for season two).

The CW’s most watched show of all time, “The Flash” season premiere will air Tuesday, October 6 (8:00-9:00pm ET), followed by the brainy zom-com “iZombie” (9:00-10:00pm ET). “Arrow” will then follow on Wednesday, October 7 at 8:00pm ET/PT.

“The Flash” stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Rick Cosnett as Eddie Thawne, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon and Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West. It’s executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, David Nutter and Sarah Schechter.

“Arrow,” meanwhile, stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Arrow, Katie Cassidy as Dinah “Laurel” Lance, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, John Barrowman as Malcom Merlyn and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Lance. It is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter.

“iZombie,” finally, stars Rose McIver as Olivia “Liv” Moore, a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out… until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. As one of the newly undead, Liv has devised a way to resist her baser urges to devour fresh human brains – she’s taken a job in the Seattle coroner’s office. In this appropriately dead-end job, she can secretly snack on the brains of the many Jane and John Doe corpses that make a final stop in the morgue. Liv remains resigned to an eternity without hope or purpose, until she realizes that with every brain she consumes, she retains a portion of that person’s memories, and she begins to experience visions from the point of view of the murder victims. It’s not the same as being alive again, but at least she can find purpose in her undead existence by helping to solve the murders of those who are indeed fully dead.

Based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, and published by DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint, “iZombie” is executive produced by Rob Thomas (“Veronica Mars,” “Party Down,” “Cupid”), Diane Ruggiero-Wright (“Veronica Mars,” “The Ex List,” “That’s Life”), Danielle Stokdyk (“Veronica Mars,” “Party Down,” “Cupid”) and Dan Etheridge (“The Carrie Diaries,” “Veronica Mars,” “Party Down”).

So for those who have skipped the blurbage, the US will see Season 2 of The Flash premiere on Tuesday, October 6th, with Arrow’s Season 4 and the second season of iZombie arriving back-to-back on Wednesday, October 7th.

As for the UK airings of these shows, they’ve yet to be confirmed, although Arrow and The Flash tend to arrive on UK shores just a few weeks after their US showings. Where iZombie is concerned, we can only hope that the show can now finally find a UK home.
