WHICH CW SHOWS HAVE BEEN RENEWED/CANCELLED…
With the 2017-2018 season coming up fast, The CW has announced its early renewals with such favorites as Supernatural, Arrow, DCs Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and Jane The Virgin.
With The Vampire Diaries ending its run with season 8, leaves Supernatural which debuted in 2005 as the longest running show in CW history.
Although low in ratings both Crazy Ex-Girlfriends and Jane the Virgin have been renewed, most likely due in part to Rachel Bloom and Gina Rodriguez the lead actresses on both critically acclaimed shows being nominated for Golden Globes.
The only shows The CW have yet to make announcements for are The Originals, The 100, iZombie, and the new drama Riverdale, (awaiting their midseason premieres), No Tomorrow, and Frequency. Although one look at the ratings for both Frequency and No Tomorrow will suggest that it is highly unlikely they will be returning and The CW recently announced REIGN (Season 4 Premiere February 10th), will not be renewed for season 5.
Over the past several seasons, The CW has built a schedule of proven performers, from our lineup of DC superheroes, to critically acclaimed comedies, to sci-fi dramas, said Pedowitz. Early pickups of these seven series now allow our producers to plan ahead for next season, and gives us a solid base to build on for next season, with original scripted series to roll out all year long.
Along with the announcement Shallow Graves made yesterday that Constantine is getting a second lease on life, but now as an animated series on CW SEED. Here’s hoping that The CW has room in its fall lineup to bring the short lived NBC series starring Matt Ryan (Constantine) back and better than ever.
