If any of your favorite shows are on the CW Network, chances are good that those series have been renewed. The network has given early renewals to ten of its primetime series for the 2019-2020 season, and they were announced today by Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW, during the network’s session at the Television Critics Association Press Tour in Pasadena.
“This season, we expanded our primetime schedule to six nights with the addition of Sunday — which has been an unqualified success for the network, our affiliates and our advertisers. In addition to growing our schedule across the week, we also continue to add more year-round programming. The early renewal of these signature CW series gives us a head start on laying out the 2019-2020 season, and this is just the beginning,” said Pedowitz. “These shows provide a strong foundation for our multiplatform programming strategy, and we look forward to building on this with even more returning and new shows as we approach the May upfront.”
The series being ordered for the 2019-2020 broadcast year include second seasons of The CW’s freshman hits “Charmed” and “Legacies,” as well as new seasons of “Arrow” (Season 8), “Black Lightning” (Season 3), “DC’S Legends of Tomorrow” (Season 5), “Dynasty” (Season 3), “The Flash” (Season 6), “Riverdale” (Season 4), “Supergirl” (Season 5), and “Supernatural” (Season 15).
While the CW Network confirmed that all of these shows will be returning for new episodes, specific premiere dates for each series will be announced at a later time. Still, if you are a big DC fans, or a new fan of Charmed or Legacies, it’s nice to know that new episodes are on the horizon. We did say goodbye to “Jane the Virgin,” “Life Sentence,” and “iZombie” this year, but it seems there will be plenty of content to stream through 2020 on the network.
More updates on the season return dates will be announced over the next few months.
