It’s finally that time of year when US network The CW goes on a mass renewing-spree, and the shows that have emerged victorious are entirely unsurprising.
Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow and Black Lightning have all be renewed, as well as Supernatural, which is currently the network’s longest running series with Season 14 on the horizon.
Non-genre shows that have also been given another season include Jane The Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Riverdale and Dynasty.
In a statement, CW president Mark Pedowitz said: “As The CW expands to a six-night, Sunday through Friday schedule next season, we are proud to have such a deep bench of great returning series for 2018-19.
By picking these 10 series up for next season, we have a terrific selection of programming to choose from when we set our fall schedule in May, with more still to come. And I’m especially happy that we’ll continue to work with the incredibly talented casts, producers, and writers who create the series our fans are so passionate about.”
Though 10 series renewals sounds like a lot, there are a couple of big-hitters missing from the list — namely iZombie and The 100 — which we rather thought would have made it too. We guess we’ll just have to wait and see if they’ll be allowed to live another day.
