Crazy Ex-Girlfriend fans got some bittersweet news today about the CW series.
The divide between Netflix and The CW is a big one, not just in content ownership but also in their respective production and release timelines - remember, Netflix series drop all their episodes at once as opposed to broadcast's preference of on a weekly basis.
The full list of returning series includes all five DC series with Arrow (season 7), The Flash (season 5), DC's Legends of Tomorrow (season 4), Supergirl (season 4) and Black Lightning (season 2). The network will be expanding to six nights of original programming beginning with the 2018-2019 season, so the renewal of so many of its shows was not unexpected. The network has now officially renewed Arrow, The Flash, and the rest of the Arrow-verse shows, as well as Riverdale, Jane The Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and Supernatural. "And I'm especially happy that we'll continue to work with the incredibly talented casts, producers, and writers who create the series our fans are so passionate about".
In a follow-up tweet, Bloom added: "The odds of selling a tv show pitch are small". The network did confirmed that ten of the network's popular series will be returning for the 2018-19 season, but one of them is coming to an end.
The CW declined comment on if season four will indeed be the show's endgame.
Premiere dates for the aforementioned shows are to be announced at a later date while decisions on Life Sentence, Valor, iZombie, and The 100 will be determined in May.
This also means that Arrowverse fans can look forward to another massive crossover like this season's "Crisis on Earth-X". Of course there is the CW staple "Supernatural", the sci-fi series is set to return for season fourteen later this year.
