The CW has stayed on the sidelines when it came to virtual upfront presentations during the pandemic. But the broadcaster will be returning to its customary position of closing out upfront week with an in-person presentation on the morning of Thursday, May 19, the company said today.

The network will return to New York City Center Theater, its longtime upfront home, for the annual event.

These will be the first in-person upfront week presentations since Covid-19 arrived in early 2020.
