The CW Network once again is giving an early renewal for next season to the bulk of its lineup with pickups for 7 fall series, the four DC shows, Arrow (Season 6), The Flash (Season 4), DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (Season 3) and transplant Supergirl (Season 3); as well as veteran Supernatural, which just keeps going with a Season 13 renewal. Also picked up for next season are praised comedies Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (Season 3) and Jane the Virgin (Season 4), which have brought the CW its first major awards recognition. (The show’s Golden Globe-winning stars Rachel Bloom and Gina Rodriguez are once again nominated at the Globes tonight.)
There are no episode order sizes set for any of the shows. Those calls will be made in May when the CW brass set the network’s fall schedule.
