Amid The CW restructuring, several new shows like Sullivan's Crossing and The Spencer Sisters were added to the fall lineup along with CW staples like Superman & Lois and All American.  

In the case of Sullivan's Crossing and The Spencer Sisters, the series both come from CTV, so if they seem familiar it's because they've already aired for Canadian audiences. Per Deadline, Sullivan's Crossing has already been renewed by The CW and CTV for a second season.

"We can't wait to bring Sullivan's Crossing to our viewers this fall, and we are so confident that audiences are going to fall in love with it that we have committed early to a second season," said Brad Schwartz, president of Entertainment at The CW. "As partners for season two, we cannot wait to work alongside this talented cast and excellent creative team to deliver another emotionally captivating season. Audiences can give their hearts to this show knowing that it is coming back for much, much more."
