Good news everyone!
All of your favourite CW shows have been renewed!
That’s right, the CW have announced the renewal of 10 shows such as Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and many more. Here is a complete list of all the renewals, thanks to Digital Spy
Supernatural (season 15)
Arrow (season 8)
Black Lightning (season 3)
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (season 5)
The Flash (season 6)
Riverdale (season 4)
Supergirl (season 5)
Charmed (season 2)
Legacies (season 2)
Dynasty (season 3)
As for some of the other shows such as Jane the Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and iZombie, they are ending their run at the CW this year with a final season. For all those iZombie fans out there, the 5th and final season is set to premiere on May 2nd.
The fate of The 100 and In The Dark is still yet to be determined.
According to the CW Chief, Mark Pedowitz:
“In addition to growing our schedule across the week, we also continue to add more year-round programming. The early renewal of these signature CW series gives us a head start on laying out the 2019-2020 season, and this is just the beginning”
As a close follower of the Arrow-verse shows, I can only begin to speculate what this means as Arrow reaches its 8th season, The Flash on its 6th and Supergirl on its 5th. What villains will turn up? Will anyone die? my brain is doing the best it can to process all the possibilities. Just one idea for The Flash… Godspeed.
Of course, we will be getting the crossover event which has been confirmed as the Crisis on Infinite Earths, which according to Mark Pedowitz will “the biggest, most complicated one that they’ve done”. So it is likely we can expect the biggest team up to date, with the potential of some new recruits *cough* Batwoman *cough*.
