Wild Cards Season 1 Episode 1 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

Wild Cards Season 1 Episode 1

Wild Cards marks the entry of yet another police procedural on The CW network. This series is a co-production between The CW and CBC and stars Vanessa Morgan and Giacomo Gianniotti in the central roles. Wild Cards promises to have a comedic twist to keep the episodes breezy and crisp. Its trailer promises a similar storytelling format to another CBS show, So Help Me Todd, which is all set to return with its second season next month. 

We are excited to bring you coverage of all the episodes in Season 1 with episodic recaps and preview articles for each new episode, assisting you to keep up with the unfolding drama. 

Here is everything you need to know about Wild Cards Season 1 Episode 1, including its release date, time, and where you can watch this.

Where Can I Watch Wild Cards?

Wild Cards will be available to watch on The CW channel for our cable network viewers in the US. In Canada, our readers can watch the show on both CBC and its streaming platform CBC Gem. The episodes will also be available to stream the next day on The CW’s website. Presently, we are not aware of any more streaming options other than those mentioned above. 

Unfortunately, for our readers in the UK, Australia, and the Indian sub-continent, Wild Cards Season 1 will not be available to stream at the same release time as in the US and Canada. However, we expect that to change in the coming weeks after the show makes its domestic debut. 

Wild Cards Season 1 Episode 1 Release Date

Wild Cards Season 1 Episode 1 will be released on Wednesday, 17th January at 8 pm (ET)/(PT) and 7 pm CT. Expect the runtime to be roughly 45 minutes or thereabouts, which is consistent with the time frame for shows of similar stature on the network. The CW will continue to host all the new episodes on its website as well a day after its cable release.

The show has already made its debut in Canada on CBC and its streaming platform CBC Gem. This happened a week ago and the trend will continue with the remaining episodes.  

Wild Cards will stick to a weekly release schedule after the first episode has aired, tugging the Wednesday airings at the same time.

The new episode of Wild Cards is titled “The Infinity Thief. The episode will be available to stream with subtitles. Its plot summary reads: “To regain his detective status, Cole Ellis, a demoted by-the-book cop, is assigned to work with Max Mitchell, a spirited con artist whose charismatic street smarts could help catch an elusive thief.” 

How Many Episodes Will Wild Cards Have?

Season 1 of Wild Cards will have a total of ten episodes. After the first episode has aired, there will be nine more episodes left in the series. The CW is not expected to make any scheduling changes. But in case that happens, we will update our readers through these weekly preview articles.
