The CW is a network that gives fans exactly what they want, which is why The Flash and Supergirl had a musical crossover and why Riverdale is actually somehow really good, so in that spirit it has now decided to renew pretty much every one of its shows with a dedicated following—even if those shows don’t have a huge audience outside of that dedicated following. This comes from Variety, which says Arrow, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Legends Of Tomorrow, The Flash, Jane The Virgin, Riverdale, Supergirl, Supernatural, Black Lightning, and Dynasty have all been picked up for new seasons, with only Life Sentence, Valor, The 100, and iZombie still waiting until next month for an official decision from The CW.
This news comes as Legends Of Tomorrow and Riverdale have already been discussing their new seasons, and it will give both Jane The Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend the opportunities to end the way their creators want them to—as Gina Rodriguez has suggested her show will end after season five and Rachel Bloom has mentioned having a four-season plan for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
from the start. Meanwhile, The CW is also planning to open up its Sunday nights for the first time in almost a decade, which freed up a lot of space for mass-renewals like this.
