Seven of The CW’s long-running scripted successes have been chosen to renew for fresh seasons. This should come as no surprise coming from a network with a lengthy history of renewing its series often and frequently. All American, Kung Fu, The Flash, Superman & Lois, Riverdale, Nancy Drew, and Walker will all get new episodes, despite the fact that several of the programs have just recently returned to the air.
The Flash will return for a ninth season, making it the longest-running series on the network, beating out Arrow. Meanwhile, other superhero series Legends of Tomorrow, Stargirl, and Batwoman are also on ice, but further renewals are likely before the network’s upfront announcements in May.
Riverdale, set in another comic book universe, returns for its sixth season. The series, which takes famous Archie Comics characters and amps up the adolescent angst, has earned appeal among both its target audience and onlookers interested in how far the writers can go from the original material. Although it is unknown whether the show will continue beyond its seventh season, fans may look forward to at least one more trip to Pop’s.
4400, Naomi, and All American: Homecoming are among the CW scripted projects that have yet to get a renewal notification, which all premiered on the network lately. Roswell, New Mexico, and Dynasty have yet to wrap up their episodes, while In the Dark and Roswell, New Mexico are now in limbo. Whether the network will be able to fit everything on the schedule among talk of Batman-related Arrowverse shows and Supernatural prequels is still a matter of time.
