This weekend, the CW announced at the Television Critics Association press tour the early renewals of seven CW series.
The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, DC’S Legends of Tomorrow, Supernatural, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin have all been renewed for the 2017-2018 season.
CW President, Mark Pedowitz spoke about the renewals. “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,” Pedowtiz said. “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.”
However, there has been no word about The Originals, with its counterpart The Vampire Diaries ending this year. The fate of mid-season shows such as The 100 and iZombie won’t be known until later in the year, along with new shows, Frequency and No Tomorrow.
It was also announced at TCA that CW has revived Constantine, which was cancelled after one season on NBC. The CW version will be an animated series on CW Seed, and will be voiced by Matt Ryan, who played John Constantine in the NBC version.
