CW Confirms 2017 Renewal for 7 Shows

The CW confirmed on January 8 that seven of its shows would be renewed. This is a much earlier confirmation than normal and unexpected by many fans.

The network opted to change the fall schedule considerably in 2016. A once fall show The Originals got moved to a midseason slot, with iZombie returning to its previous midseason lineup. Reign Season 4 was confirmed but wouldn’t air until 2017 and has since been canceled. The Vampire Diaries Season 8 was confirmed as the final season with just a 16-episode lineup.

Frequency and No Tomorrow were the only two new shows to gain fall lineups, with Supergirl flying over from CBS. It did mean Crazy Ex-Girlfriend moved to a Friday night slot, worrying fans that the show would come to an end.

However, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was one of the seven shows to get a 2017 renewal this weekend. Supernatural, Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and Jane the Virgin are the others on the list. Frequency and No Tomorrow have been the only fall shows not to get a renewal yet. They were also only given 13-episode seasons for their first seasons, allowing The 100, The Originals, Reign and iZombie a chance to air. It is unclear whether the two new shows, along with newest show Riverdale will get renewals.

Constantine is being resurrected from CBS, but as an animated series, according to FanNews. There is no news about the midseasons shows yet, as they haven’t started their newest season.

Stay tuned for more updates to the cancellations or renewals for the 2017-2018 scheduling on all networks.
