The CW’s set an October 9, 2017 premiere date for their new dramatic action series, Valor, from executive producers Bill Haber, Anna Fricke, and Kyle Jarrow. The new one-hour military drama will be added to the network’s Monday primetime lineup at 9pm ET/PT, airing after season three of Supergirl which airs at 8pm.

Valor season one stars Christina Ochoa (Animal Kingdom), Matt Barr (Sleepy Hollow), Charlie Barnett (Chicago Fire), Corbin Reid (How to Get Away With Murder), W. Trè Davis (Shades of Blue), Nigel Thatch (Selma) and Melissa Roxburgh (Star Trek Beyond).


The Plot: An elite unit of U.S. Army helicopter pilots called the Shadow Raiders is sent on a top secret mission to Somalia, a mission that goes terribly awry. Only two members of the team return safely: Warrant Officer Nora Madani (Ochoa), one of the unit’s first female helicopter pilots, and her commanding officer, Captain Leland Gallo (Barr), while the whereabouts of their comrade Jimmy Kam (Davis) are unknown. Now back in the U.S., Madani and Gallo are the only ones who know the truth about what really went wrong in Somalia. Nora’s boyfriend, First Lieutenant Ian Porter (Barnett), suspects she’s not telling him the full story, and Jess Kam (Reid), Jimmy’s wife and Nora’s friend, is frustrated and furious at being kept in the dark. Meanwhile Thea (Roxburgh), the enigmatic CIA officer charged with investigating the failed mission, has her own suspicions about what occurred.

With Nora still recovering from a gunshot wound she suffered during the mission, the commander of the Shadow Raiders, Col. Robert Haskins (Thatch), grounds her from flying. But when it’s discovered that Jimmy is alive and being held captive by a group of ruthless terrorists, Nora is determined to join Gallo back in the cockpit to rescue their friend. As preparation and training intensify, Nora and Gallo grow closer, and soon find themselves torn between duty, honor and desire as they wonder who they can trust, and whether the secrets they’re hiding will help save Jimmy… or put them all in terrible danger.
