May 18 (UPI) -- The CW will be moving its superhero drama Arrow to Thursday nights at 9 p.m. when the series returns for Season 6 this fall.

Arrow previously aired on the network for five seasons on Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. The first of The CW's collection of DC Comics-based dramas produced by Greg Berlanti, Arrow will be joined on Thursdays by long-running paranormal series, Supernatural.

Taking Arrow's place on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. is the Archie comics-based Riverdale which will serve as a lead in to the network's upcoming reboot of Dynasty.

The move to a later time also notably keeps Arrow away from competing with Fox's Batman prequel series Gotham, which is moving to Thursday nights at 8 p.m.

The CW is also permanently moving its superhero ensemble series DC's Legends of Tomorrow, to Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. following The Flash at 8 p.m. Legends previously aired in this time slot earlier this year towards the end of Season 2.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow, which airs limited seasons, could potentially be replaced by upcoming superhero series Black Lightning during the midseason, according to Deadline.
