Renewed: Arrow, Supernatural, The Flash, Jane the Virgin.
Plus: Reign, The 100, The Originals and The Vampire Diaries.
It also renewed Jane the Virgin, The Flash, Reign, The 100, The Originals and The Vampire Diaries which premiere in Australia on Foxtel.
Mark Pedowitz, president of youth-skewed network The CW said, “Each of these series have helped define what The CW is today, a network that is home to smart, provocative, quality programming, targeting a savvy adult audience,”
“By picking up these shows now, our executive producers can start planning next season’s storylines, and rolling these shows out throughout next season guarantees The CW will have more proven original series for our fall, midseason and summer 2016 lineups.”
Since adding Jane the Virgin and The Flash, the network is up 14 percent in total viewers in Year on Year figures.
Yesterday Jane helped the network pick up its first ever Golden Globe Award.
Not all orders will be for full-season 22 episodes and not all shows will return next fall, with some of them possibly being held back for midseason and even summer, the CW president Mark Pedowitz said. But the network is not planning to ramp up limited runs despite the large volume of shows. Of the just renewed series, The 100 had a 16-episode second-season pickup.
