The CW has renewed all of its current scripted TV shows for the 2020 - 2021 season - besides those already scheduled to end this season, such as Arrow.
First reported by Deadline, this includes the Arrow-verse shows Batwoman, Black Lightning, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, and Supergirl, as well as Riverdale.
"These early orders for next season give our production teams a head start in plotting out story arcs and a jump on hiring staff, and this also provides us with a strong foundation of established, fan-favorite CW shows to build on for next season," said CW President Mark Pedowitz. "We’ve been thrilled with the creative direction of all three new series, and even though we are in the very early stages of our new full stack streaming strategy, which allows viewers to catch up on our new shows from the beginning, we’re already seeing incredibly positive results from our multiplatform viewership for Nancy Drew and Batwoman."
The Riverdale spin-of show Katy Keene, which is scheduled to debut February 6, has also been expanded for 13 additional episodes in its first season.
