The CW has chosen 12 shows on its network early renewals including multiple DCTV series and has also handed out additional episodes to one DCTV series.
While I’m happy at some of the early renewals, I’m also kind of disappointed that Legends of Tomorrow has had a renewal after the god awful last season.
Here is a list of what DCTV shows have been renewed
- Batwoman renewed for a Season 3
- Legends of Tomorrow for a Season 7
- The Flash for a Season 8
As of now, Superman & Lois has had 2 additional episodes granted and will most likely be renewed after the first season’s premiere.
“Though we’re just a few weeks into the new season, we wanted to get a strategic head start on next season with these early renewals, which allows our production teams to start laying out story arcs and hiring staff, and at the same time, continues to provide us with a strong, stable schedule to build on for next season,” said Mark Pedowitz, chairman and CEO of The CW. “As The CW’s 2020-2021 season kicks into high gear, we are thrilled creatively with the direction of our first new shows out of the gate, ‘Walker’ and ‘Superman & Lois,’ that we wanted to order the additional episodes to complete their first seasons, and we are particularly pleased with the huge success of the launch of ‘Walker,’ which debuted as our most-watched series premiere in 5 years.”
The CW has a series ending this season in Black Lightning with its fourth and final season is set to premiere next Monday, However, A Black Lightning spin-off show was announced last year set around the character of Painkiller.
