Looks like The CW was feeling generous this week: The network renewed 10 of its series for additional seasons.
The buzziest of the bunch is "Riverdale," the modern-day twist on the "Archie" comic series, which will be back for season three in the fall. And there's good news for some shows that were on the bubble, too: "Jane the Virgin" and "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" also made the renewal cut, despite dismal ratings.
Both "Jane" (which will be back for season five) and "CXG" (which will be back for season four) are likely to end their runs after those episodes, since producers had previously discussed having those specific number of seasons in mind when planning out their shows' respective story arcs. Plus, "JtV" star Gina Rodriguez already spilled the beans about her series's impending end.
Not likely to end anytime soon, though? The CW's lineup of DC superhero series, which are all returning for the 2018-2019 season. And the Winchester brothers are proving that "Grey's Anatomy" isn't the only TV drama that can hang around for over a decade: "Supernatural" has been picked up for a 14th season.
The full list of renewed shows includes: "Arrow" (Season 7), "Black Lightning" (Season 2), "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" (Season 4), "Dynasty" (Season 2), "Legends of Tomorrow" (Season 4), "The Flash" (Season 5), "Jane the Virgin" (Season 5), "Riverdale" (Season 3), "Supergirl" (Season 4), and "Supernatural" (Season 14 ).
The flurry of renewals comes as The CW amps up its original programming, expanding into Sunday nights. No word yet on the fate of the just-moved freshman series "Life Sentence," though with so much time to fill, the network may yet wind up throwing that show another season, too. Stay tuned.
