Fox Is Shaking: The CW Issues Renewals For Every Show

BY February 25, 2021

While some networks get a reputation for being cancel-happy–ahem, see the title–The CW is not one of them. Today, as they’ve done in previous years, The CW has gone ahead and given renewals for every active show. Find out what’s coming back, what’s coming back…more, and what else you can expect from the 2020 TV season.

Shows You’ll See Again (And Some You Won’t) Thanks To CW Renewals

The CW currently has 13 (scripted) shows in production. 12 of those shows will be coming back for the 2020-2021 TV season. These shows are as follows: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Batwoman, Supergirl, Black Lightning, All-American, Riverdale, Nancy Drew, Charmed, Dynasty, Roswell New Mexico, and Legacies. The 13th show, Katy Keene, a Riverdale spin-off, hasn’t aired yet. It will be premiering this year–February 6, to be exact. The CW didn’t officially renew it for a second season–yet–but they did pick up 13 more episodes. And that’s basically the equivalent of ordering a second season. (There is still some confusion, though, over whether the 13-episode pickup is a second season or will be part of the first season.)

If you noticed a few shows missing in that list, there’s good reason for a couple of them, at least. Both Arrow and Supernatural are ending this year, so obviously, The CW didn’t renew those. As for summer shows like Two-Sentence Horror Stories, their fate is still in the air.

New Shows The CW Will Be Renewing Next Year

As for what else to expect from The CW, they’ve, of course, begun ordering pilots and giving series orders to newcomers to the 2020 season. Some of these have already been announced. For example, we all know that Jared Padalecki won’t be leaving The CW after his long (long) time of “saving people, hunting things” on Supernatural comes to an end. In fact, he’ll still be hunting–people this time–as the title character in The CW’s reboot of Walker, Texas Ranger.

In fact, in a stunning example of entertainment today, everything The CW has announced so far is either a sequel, a reboot, or a spin-off. The sequel is an update to the late 60s cult classic Dark Shadows. The reboot is a new take on the 70s cult classic Kung Fu, coming from crazy-prolific producer Greg Berlanti. And the spin-offs will be Green Arrow and the Canaries (that will center around lady characters Mia Smoak, Laurel Lance, and Dinah Drake) and Supergirl spin-off, Superman and Lois.

Other shows have yet to be announced.
