The CW renews all your favourite DCTV shows for 2019/20 season


We’re reaching that time of year which is make or break for our favourite TV shows. But fans of The CW can rest easy as the network has handed out early renewals to ALL of it’s DC Comics shows.

Yes Arrow, The Flash, Black Lightning, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow will all be returning with new seasons later in the year.

Announcing the news network head Mark Pedowitz commented on the successful 2018/19 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. 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.

This latest set of renewals takes Arrow in to season 8, The Flash to season 6, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow to season 5 and Black Lightning to season 3.

Interestingly Pedowitz commented on the networks difficulty to “air all six DC Shows” at the same time.


Well Mark can we count on Batwoman hitting screens later this year?
