The CW have gone renewal-crazy today, granting new series to eleven shows.
Along with giving The Flash a third season and Arrow a fifth, Supernatural now becomes the longest-running CW show of all-time following the guarantee of a season 12.
Other shows that will be returning are DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Vampire Diaries and The Originals.
Speaking on the renewals, The CW president Mark Pedowitza said;
“The CW has become home to some of the most critically-acclaimed shows on broadcast television, with a wide array of fantastic scripted series across the week, ranging from musical comedy, to superhero action, to gritty sci-fi dramas. As we continue to further our strategy of more year-round original programming, picking up these 11 series for the 2016-2017 season puts us in a great position of having proven, high-quality shows to launch in the fall as well as midseason and summer of 2017.”
