The CW is currently known for their superheroes, but is the network trying to start a musical trend? Despite low ratings, The CW's "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" has been been renewed for a third season. CW President Mark Pedowitz shared that this decision wasn't based on numbers, but on what the musical has helped the network become. It seems this won't be the only show to get musical. CW favorites "The Flash" and "Supergirl" will feature a musical crossover, and new show "Riverdale" will contain a musical aspect. Other networks have gotten the musical bug.

ABC and Syfy are feeling musical with announcements made for a musical "Once Upon a Time," and singing in the magic land on "The Magicians."

The CW has plans for more musicals

New show "Riverdale" may be a murder mystery, but music will be a driving force for Archie through playing the guitar and writing songs. KJ Apa (Archie) explains that music to Archie is a way to process what he's experiencing and dealing with. Each song will pertain to what's happening in the episode. Episode 6 will contain a variety show that features Archie, and the characters of Josie and the Pussycats performing. He will find himself relating to Josie and her band, which will provide a major musical component. Apa performs his own music for the scenes where Archie plays guitar and sings.

The show premieres on the CW January 26, following "Supernatural."

Fan favorite superheroes "Supergirl" and "The Flash" will be crossing over yet again with musical episodes. The CW hasn't revealed much about the latest crossover, but an announcement for who will be singing has been made: Grant Gustin (Barry Allen), Melissa Benoist (Kara), Carlos Valdes (Cisco), and Broadway veterans, Jesse L.

Martin (Joe), Victor Garber (Dr. Stein), Jeremy Jordan (Winn), and John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn). David Harewood (Hank), and Chris Wood (Mon-El) will appear in the episode, but won't be singing. In recent news, the villain for the crossover, Music Meister will be played by Glee vet Darren Criss, creating a reunion with Gustin and Benoist.

ABC and Syfy planning musical numbers for 'Once Upon a Time,' and 'The Magicians'

Plans for a musical episode of "Once Upon a Time" have been announced. The show is known for its use of several Disney films that contain musical numbers, but so far the show has only given nods to the classic songs. Remember the "Beauty and the Beast" dance scene? Series lead Jennifer Morrison said that all the actors sing, and would enjoy doing a musical episode. No further details have been released by ABC. The second half of the season will return to ABC on March 5.

Last season Syfy delivered "The Magicians" based on the best-selling novels. Despite the darkness of the show, last season contained an interesting musical number of Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off" which was justified by being inside the mind of the series lead as he was trapped by a spell.

Season 2 of "The Magicians" will contain two to three new musical numbers that have been described as grand. The other world the characters found themselves in, Filliory is a magical place where there can be any excuse to have a musical number. Season 2 premieres January 25.
