CW has renewed 11 of its primetime series for the 2016-2017 season. The news came on Friday from CW President Mark Pedowitz.
“The CW has become home to some of the most critically-acclaimed shows on broadcast television, with a wide array of fantastic scripted series across the week, ranging from musical comedy, to superhero action, to gritty sci-fi dramas,” said Pedowitz. ” As we continue to further our strategy of more year-round original programming, picking up these 11 series for the 2016-2017 season puts us in a great position of having proven, high-quality shows to launch in the fall as well as midseason and summer of 2017.”
The early renewals include Jane The Virgin (Season 3), Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (Season 2), The Flash (Season 3), iZombie (Season 3), Arrow (Season 5), Supernatural (Season 12), DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (Season 2), The 100 (Season 4), The Vampire Diaries (Season 8), The Originals (Season 4), and Reign (Season 4). Specific premiere dates for the above series will be announced at a later time.
