All of your favorite DC superheroes are returning to the CW network next season.
The network announced today it has issued renewals for Arrow, D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, and Supergirl.
Variety suspects the early renewals were paved in part by the $1 billion after season streaming deal CW signed with Netflix last year, and they’re probably right. When you have a customer ponying up a billion dollars, you had better deliver.
CW president Mark Pedowitz commented on the renewals, “Over the past several seasons, The CW has built a schedule of proven performers, from our lineup of DC superheroes, to critically acclaimed comedies, to sci-fi dramas. Early pickups of these seven series now allow our producers to plan ahead for next season, and gives us a solid base to build on for next season, with original scripted series to roll out all year long.”
