It’s been a busy night for The CW. Earlier this evening the network released a new poster for the final parts of Crisis On Infinite Earths and now they’ve followed up by announcing early renewals for almost their entire slate of programming.
For the comic book fans in the audience we have the exciting news that the entire DCTV slate will return for another season. The Flash heads in to its seventh season, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow both enter season 6, Black Lightning gains a fourth season and newcomer Batwoman will return for season 2.
It’s important to point out at this stage the network hasn’t picked up any new shows so no news on Green Arrow and the Canaries and the rumours Superman and Lois Lane series.
The network also handed out early renewals to Riverdale, All American, Charmed, Legacies, In the Dark, Roswell, New Mexico, Dynasty, andNancy Drew.
“These early orders for next season give our production teams a head start in plotting out story arcs and a jump on hiring staff, and this also provides us with a strong foundation of established, fan-favorite CW shows to build on for next season,” The CW president Mark Pedowitz explained. “We’ve been thrilled with the creative direction of all three new series, and even though we are in the very early stages of our new full-stack streaming strategy, which allows viewers to catch up on our new shows from the beginning, we’re already seeing incredibly positive results from our multiplatform viewership for Nancy Drew and Batwoman.”
