It looks like The CW’s dominance over superhero TV will continue on the other year, with it being confirmed on the TCA press tour that Arrow, The Flash, Legends Of Tomorrow and Supergirl have been renewed for sixth, fourth and third seasons respectively.
In addition, the seemingly unkillable Supernatural will also come back for a 13th season. At this point we’re not sure what it will take for it to actually end, but this news should rightly please its enormous and dedicated fanbase.
Moreover, we’ll always be happy to hear that The CW are bringing out more superhero shows. We’re sure that one of them will bite the dust eventually, but until then, with Supergirl and Legends Of Tomorrow both having found their feet, we’ll bask in this good news.
On the other hand, there hasn’t been any news regarding the fate of new series Frequency, No Tomorrow or Riverdale, nor the renewals of The Originals, The 100 or iZombie, but this isn’t necessarily a bad omen, at least for the latter shows.
Then again, if anything happens to the iZombie then that’s it, we’re going to riot. Not that we’re suggesting we will – although we’ll kick off if it does happen.
Speaking of the renewals, The CW president Mark Pedowitz said, “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. 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.”
Arrow, The Flash, Legends Of Tomorrow and Supergirl will all return to Sky 1 later in 2017. For all the latest TV news, pick up the new issue of SciFiNow.
