CW Renew/Cancel Watch: 'iZombie' Returns as Likely to be Renewed

Hey guys, it's Jessica! This is week 4 of Renew/Cancel Predictions and it's finally premiere week for the CW! I will be posting this early this week with updates soon to follow. Without further ado, here are this week's predictions!

The 100 (midseason)

iZombie: The show returned with a 0.7 A18-49 rating. The ratings for the second season premiere are down a tenth from last year, but they were on par with its first season's ratings. The prediction will start as likely to be renewed. 

Arrow: Ratings were slightly higher for the fourth season premiere than at this time last year. The show will start out as "certain to be renewed". 

Supernatural: The ratings for the season premiere are up from last season's season finale. The show will start as "certain to be renewed". 

The Flash: Enough said, although ratings were down from season 1. Still the highest rated show on the network. It's certain to be renewed. 

The Originals: The show premiered down three tenths from last year's 0.7 A18-49 second season premiere rating, to a 0.4 A18-49 rating. However, ratings are practically irrelevant since it is certain to be renewed due to syndication purposes. 

The Vampire Diaries: The first airing without Nina Dobrev scored basically where they left off. That 0.6 A18-49 rating is three tenths down from a 0.9 a year ago. The show will start at a toss up for now. 

And now here's more of the CBS/Warner imbalance, and more reasons why Reign is likely to be renewed. Reign is CBS produced. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is CBS produced, as well as Jane the Virgin. Jane the Virgin and Reign were dreadfully low rated last season. If all three shows are renewed, what will this mean? At least one of the Warner Bros. produced shows will go to the chopping block in order to settle the imbalance. Will it be The Vampire Diaries, The 100, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Containment, or iZombie? Stay tuned.
