CW Renew/Cancel: New and Returning Show Chances

Hey folks! This is Jessica here! Since we got a couple of months until the first CW predictions of the 2017-18 season, I thought I would go ahead and decide on all shows in advance. A few of the shows are already predicted in advance, so I thought I would explain them again for the people in the back.

Crazy Ex- Girlfriend

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

Jane the Virgin

The 100

The Flash


For Crazy Ex, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl, they will be in their third seasons this season. They are certain to be renewed for fourth seasons regardless of ratings. The Flash is added into this category because its the highest rated show on the lineup. I don't expect the show to be canceled any time soon.

Arrow and Supernatural are likely to be renewed, barring cast and crew contracts. Despite having syndication deals, these shows are aging and getting expensive. Both shows also have casting shuffles. Supernatural, in this case had to get rid of a series regular for the upcoming thirteenth season. So barring cast and crew fatigue, the ratings will most likely warrant another season, especially since they have syndication deals.

Middle of the pack show Riverdale is likely to be renewed as well for now. It is moving to the lead off role for the upcoming season, so it depends on ratings in this circumstance. It also has a Netflix US+24 deal in multiple countries, so it also depends on how it does there.

In addition to the fourth and fifth season shows with uncertain fates, Dynasty and Valor are in the Watching column. Dynasty and Valor are CBS shows, so they'll mostly be as low rated as Jane and Crazy Ex, but not by much. Dynasty also has a Netflix US+24 deal, so if one CBS show will be saved, it may be it. But Valor has international television network deals. Madison Avenue predicted according to Variety that it will be higher rated than Dynasty. However, it also depends on whether they both get backorders or not. We'll see what happens.
