One of the shows that everyone has been waiting for comes to the CW for the fall 2016 season. The Flash is the first of the CW shows to return at 8 p.m. with the premiere of Season 3. It is followed by new series No Tomorrow airing in the next hour slot.
No Tomorrow is another comedy program for the network. Tori Anderson’s character falls in love with Joshua Sasse’s character, who is living life to the edge. Sasse’s character believes that the apocalypse is here and there won’t be a tomorrow. Would you want to live your last day without doing everything that you’d ever wanted? Anderson decides she doesn’t, so she goes on an adventure with him to cross out everything on their bucket lists.
Hulu will get The Mindy Project back for the season.

The CW continues with its scheduling to bring Arrow Season 5 at 8 p.m. There are many questions over how this season will continue after the shocking death of Laurel Lance last year and the changes to The Flash, which is set in the same universe.
Frequency‘s pilot episode airs at 9 p.m. on the CW next. This is based on the movie with the same name. In 2016, a cop comes across a radio where she gets to chat to her dead father 20 years in the past. She makes the decision to change his death, but what else does it change?
More importantly, the show is being run by none other than Supernatural‘s former executive producer Jeremy Carver.

That’s it for the week until the Sunday. HBO airs the pilot episode of Divorce at 10 p.m. and follows that with the return of Insecure a half hour later.
Divorce stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Variety describes it as a sequel to Sex and the City. It’s not quite a sequel, but it is easy to understand where that description could come from. There are elements that make it seem like this is how Carrie Bradshaw could have found herself 18 years after the pilot episode of SATC.
Instead, Divorce is about middle-aged, sullen Frances, who is completely disengaged from the world. She is on the verge of a divorce, which the title suggests, but she decides to fight for her marriage instead. Parker’s character initially wants to make a clean break from her marriage but realizes just how difficult that is going to be.
The show is set as a comedy with a darkness to it. It will air in 10 half-hour episodes on the network. Will this be the next Sex and the City?
Are your favorite TV shows returning to the fall TV 2016 schedule? Don’t worry if they’re not this week. There are still another couple of weeks for the likes of Supernatural and Chicago Fire to return.
