Fall Premiere Shuffle: Vampire Diaries, Originals and Supernatural Get Earlier Start Dates

Those thirsting for a new season of The Vampire Diaries – and the debut of its offshoot The Originals – will get their fang fix earlier than expected.

The CW on Monday announced that the Season 5 premiere of TVD and the series premiere of The Originals will bow on Thursday, Oct. 3 starting at  8/7c, a week earlier than previously scheduled

The following week, (Oct. 8), The Originals will move to its regular time slot at 8 pm Tuesdays, where it will lead into Supernatural‘s Season 9 opener — which was originally slotted for Oct. 15. (If you miss the Oct. 8 Originals, it will air as an encore at 9 pm on Thursday, Oct. 10 after a new TVD.)

Reign, the network’s new drama about a young Mary, Queen of Scots, will now bow at 9 pm on Thursday, Oct. 17, a week later than originally announced.
