These Are the Shows The CW Has Renewed For Next Season Already

Sadly, fans will be saying farewell to some of their favorite shows on The CW at the end of this season. Supernatural and Arrow are leaving the lineup, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be other content to keep viewers hooked.

Arrow has expanded its universe with interconnected, spinoff shows, and there is still plenty of supernatural-themed fare for those who prefer it. Here’s a list of which series on the network have already been given the green light for next season.

The freshman series ranked in the top three for the network and continues to draw in strong numbers. According to a press release from The CW’s president, Mark Pedowitz, Batwoman and Nancy Drew are aces:

“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.”


A spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, Legacies follows the life of Hope Mikaelson at the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted. It will be back with season three.

‘The Flash’

Rated as the network’s top show, The Flash will return for season seven next fall. That’s wonderful news for fans who can’t wait to see how things pan out after “Crisis on Infinite Earths.”


The teen drama which centers on Archie Andrews and his Riverdale-dwelling friends and family is set to return with season five for the 2020-2021 season.

‘Nancy Drew’

Though the supernatural slant in this version of Nancy Drew makes it darker, the show earned itself a second season after its successful debut. Only time will tell if fans stick with it.

‘All American’

The family football drama (which is inspired by a true story) hasn’t been left in limbo this year as it’s been given a third season.

‘Black Lightning’

DC’s electrifying superhero will be around to fight another day for season four thanks to the early renewal. Maybe there’s another crossover in his future too!

‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’

Another fan favorite, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is already prepping for season seven. Who will make it?


Who wants to see more bloody craziness between the Carringtons and the Colbys on Dynasty? Season four will return with more deception and conniving characters.


It took some time but Charmed earned its own fan base with a reimagining of the original. Tune in for season three.

‘In the Dark’

The comedy about a blind woman trying to navigate her friendships and solve a mystery received 13 episodes for its first season, and now it will be back with more.

‘Roswell, New Mexico’

If you love the series—which features aliens with powers and romance—then you’ll be happy to learn that it’s coming back for a third season in the fall.


Like the other DC hero series on this list, Supergirl will be affected by the outcome of “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” However, more stories are on the horizon for season six.

‘Katy Keene’ received a full order too

Katy Keene, a spinoff of Riverdale, is already creating lots of buzz for its themes of fashion, glam, and music in the Big Apple, and The CW has gone ahead and ordered 13 more episodes ahead of its pilot premiere in February.
