The CW Renews Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, And More
It may have been a foregone conclusion. But The CW has made it official. Via Deadline, all of DC’s Arrowverse superhero series have been renewed.
The flagship series, Arrow, will head into its eighth season this fall. Its first spinoff, The Flash, will race into its sixth season. Supergirl’s fifth season will mark its fourth year on the network. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will also be back for a fifth season. Although Black Lightning isn’t technically a part of the Arrowverse, it also scored a renewal for its third season. A series order for Batwoman is still a strong possibility as well. Potentially, all of those series could take part in the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover.
Additionally, Supernatural will return for its fifteenth season. Freshmen genre series Charmed and Legacies were also renewed for second season.
“This season, we expanded our primetime schedule to six nights with the addition of Sunday — which has been an unqualified success for the network, our affiliates and our advertisers, said The CW President, Mark Pedowitz in a statement. “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, These shows provide a strong foundation for our multiplatform programming strategy, and we look forward to building on this with even more returning and new shows as we approach the May upfront.”
