The CW may be saying goodbye to "Girlfriends", "WWE SmackDown!" and "CW Now," but several of its shows will return with all-new episodes now that the Writers' Strike has ended.
The networks announced Friday, Feb. 15 that six of its shows will once again go into production in order to air new episodes this spring, while two other shows already have episodes in the can.
"The Game" will return in late March with the most episodes, while "One Tree Hill," "Smallville," "Gossip Girl," "Reaper" and "Supernatural" will poke up their heads in April.
"Everybody Hates Chris" shot and completed episodes early, so its remaining 12 original ones will begin airing March 3. Similarly, its fellow sitcom "Aliens in America" has eight original episodes done that will air March 2-23 and April 27-18.
The CW already has some fresh material on the horizon. "Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious" debuts on Monday, Feb. 18, and two days later on the Wednesday the 20th, the tenth cycle of "America's Next Top Model" premieres. In addition, the next wave of social experimenters will return with "Beauty and the Geek" on Tuesday, March 11.
