The CW just announced premiere dates for all of its would-be fall 2020 TV shows and now we finally know how long we have to wait to see Javicia Leslie suit up as Batwoman for the first time, or to find out what life is like after graduation on Riverdale

The network made the decision back in May to start its fall season in January as long as production could start in September. It looks like everything's on track, despite the global pandemic that caused massive delays.
