CW Renews ‘Arrow’ and ‘Flash,’ Plus 6 Other Series For Next Year


The CW announced early renewals for eight series at Sunday morning’s Television Critics Association event, including a fourth season for Arrow and a second season for The Flash.

In a statement released earlier this morning, CW president Mark Pedowitz said, “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.”

The other six shows to get renewals are Jane the Virgin, Reign, Supernatural, The 100, The Originals and The Vampire Diaries.


  • Arrow 2.0

    woohoo for flash and arrow

  • Andy Nystrom

    Not surprising about Arrow and Flash but happy news regardless. I like Agents of SHIELD and Gotham even more, but Arrow and Flash are solid superhero shows that deserve the renewal.

  • Simon DelMonte

    Good news about Arrow and Flash.

    Not so good news about Supernatural, which is far past its sell-by date. I feel like it’s been on since the 70s.

  • Nathan

    I love Supernatural and still watch it, but it needs to be put to rest. This next one will be Season 11.

  • Impressive

    Supernatural recently aired it 204th episode and has surpassed X-Files in total episodes (202). There can’t be many sci-fi/fantasy shows with that kind of longevity. Dr. Who is the only one that comes to mind.

  • Andy Nystrom

    Smallville has more episodes now (217) but Supernatural will pass it by next season.

  • Hypestyles

    CW needs 3 hours of nightly programming. It’s time to break out of the two-hour box once and for all.

  • Zenstrive

    Supernatural is supernatural on its longetivity…

  • Charles S.

    Stargate SG-1 went on for 214 episodes and two straight-to-DVD movies.

    Doctor Who is by far the longest running sci-fi show though. It’s like in the 700’s. Of course the concept of regernation really lends itself to a long running show since the show can simply replace the entire cast when the show gets a bit stale.

    If we think of each Doctor’s tenure as being a separate show but existing in a shared universe, then we have to do the same for other shows, which means Star Trek has gone on for over 700 episodes and Stargate is darn near 400!

    More Superheroes!
