The CW is keeping the Easter treats going by renewing 10 shows!
The network announced on Monday that it has renewed Arrow, Black Lightning, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Legends of Tomorrow, Dynasty, The Flash, Jane the Virgin, Riverdale, Supergirl and Supernaturalfornext season.
That leaves only The 100, iZombie, Life Sentence andValor with their fates up in the air going into next season. Fans of the first two from that list shouldn't worry too much; The 100 hasn't even premiered yet and iZombie traditionally scores a late pick-up. Those decisions will come in May when The CW announces its final pickups and new shows during the network's Upfronts presentation in New York.
It doesn't look as promising for Valor, which didn't add episodes to its initial order after lackluster numbers in the fall. The military drama's stars have already signed on to other pilots, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Life Sentence is also in trouble, as The CW bumped it from Wednesdays to Fridays last week, showing that the numbers aren't what they were expecting with Lucy Hale's first major post-Pretty Little Liars role.
However, The CW is expanding to six nights a week next fall by expanding its schedule to Sundays, giving it an additional two hours a week to program. CW boss Mark Pedowitz has also been very vocal about wanting to expand the network's summer programming — which could explain why the network picked up the low-performing Dynasty for a second chance after moving it to Fridays at mid-season.
The CW has a record nine pilots in the works, including Supernatural and The Originals spin-offs and the Roswell and Charmed reboots. The final decision on whether the network will use the extra real estate to give a few of its current shows more time to find an audience or take on new original content will be made next month.
