The CW Sets October Premiere Dates, Focuses on 'Flash'

The network is putting a lot of promotion behind the "Arrow" spinoff, heavily repeating its planted pilot and encoring the first two episodes after the parent series.

The CW will roll out its fall schedule in October this year, again on the heels of another telecast for the iHeartRadio Festival.

Freshman drama The Flash also gets a great deal of fanfare, with repeats of last season's backdoor pilot airing during premiere week and encores for the comic book series' first two episodes getting special airings after parent series Arrow.
