The CW may not have had any one of its current lineup of shows get a single nomination in the first few awards ceremonies this 2019 season, but it does not matter. The 2019 SAG Awards did have memorable speeches. What they do have on TV, ranging from superhero series to paranormal fare, is still getting enough views to merit extensions for another season, each.

Variety reported that during the winter TCA press tour, The CW announced that a whopping ten shows from its current crop of primetime TV series are being renewed for the next 2019-2020 season. That is almost their entire evening block.

The CW extends ‘Arrow,’ DC shows

For The CW’s bread and butter, the DC television universe, the end will not be coming anytime soon. Every one of its current superhero shows is still going strong, with added seasons to the runs. The originating program, “Arrow” is now going to Season 8, “The Flash” to Season 6, “Supergirl” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” both to Season 5, and finally, “Black Lightning” to its third.

Meanwhile, the top season renewal for The CW is also the longest running show among the ten. Entertainment Weekly revealed that “Supernatural” will be coming back for Season 15 on the network.

Well established as a stable part of the primetime lineup for The CW is “Riverdale,” the dark mystery teen drama based on the iconic “Archie” humor comics. After a touch-and-go debut in 2017, its follow-ups have eased concerns that it can run for as long as show-runner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa can make it. “Riverdale” is currently at Episode 11 of Season 3.

‘Charmed’ reboot leads first-time renewals

Season renewals of proven shows are not all that The CW has been up to. In a similar vein to Fox green-lighting a Season 2 for “The Masked Singer,” which premiered just this month, two other CW newbie series have been blessed with continuations. The Unicorn was also just revealed on the Fox hit. The remake of the beloved late 90s-2000s witchy show “Charmed” is back, as is “Legacies,” which makes a series trilogy with 2009’s “The Vampire Diaries” and 2013’s “The Originals.”

Conversely, there are also some shows on the network that CW has decided to end.

“iZombie,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” and “Jane the Virgin” will be bowing out before the 2019-2020 seasonal transition. Nevertheless, the mass renewals of the other shows born of The CW’s six-day primetime strategy is really bearing fruit for the network.
