The CW is certainly entering December with a bang, but 2017 is when the landscape really starts to shift. Not only do we know when to expect returning favorites like The 100 and iZombie, but also freshman offerings like Riverdale, and the final graduation of The Vampire Diaries.
Even as The CW becomes a conglomerate of TV superheroes, you didn’t think the young-skewing network would let vampires go, did you? With The Vampire Diaries on its way out, and The Originals approaching a middle, The CW has in mind to reboot vampire classic The Lost Boys with a surprisingly ambitious generational twist.
Welp, if ever you wanted to overload on TV superheros, have we got a Comic-Con for you! Warner Bros. TV has officially loaded up on 21 series headed to San Diego this year, from Flash to Supergirl to Powerless, Justice League Action, and a few non-superhero series like The Big Bang Theory, The 100, and Animaniacs. You may have heard of them.
It’s easy to take the streaming availability of network shows for granted, whether Hulu’s ability to screen most-episodes next day, or Netflix’s new season availability ahead of premieres, but CW viewers in particular are in for good news and bad. CW shows will become available on Netflix much, much faster, but at the cost of their Hulu availability.
Yeah, pretty much no-brainers here (except for iZombie). If you like The CW, and its myriad of successful shows like superhero dramas like Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, and others like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and The 100, you’re in luck! Just about everything has been renewed for additional seasons over the 2016-2017 season.
The CW’s Tuesday and Wednesday lineups of Flash, Arrow, iZombie and Supernatural have us all on break for the next few weeks, but as March braces to cross the midway hump, we now know when all the major on-season dramas will air their finales. Find out when DC dramas, Grounders, Crazies and more should brace for the end!
There’s no denying the surge in CW popularity over the last few years, with superhero series like Arrow, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow dominating weekdays, while Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend bring home Golden Globes. Still, the network remains relatively small against the big four, so might CW owners look toward yet another cord-cutter streaming service?
The CW’s iZombie had plenty of Veronica Mars baked into its brains already, between creator Rob Thomas and a host of past Mars favorites, but now Neptune’s greatest P.I. will finally enter Liv’s world. Well, mostly. What 50 Shades shenanigans bring Kristen Bell to Seattle for iZombie’s Veronica Mars reunion?
The CW had itself a banner day, dropping some big news in the form of a Legends of Tomorrow trailer and premiere, simultaneously making waves with the rest of its 2016 schedule. We now know when The 100 will return for Season 3, what it means for The Vampire Diaries, and what fans of iZombie and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend can look forward to.
Anyone boarding DC’s TV train over the last few months may have been drawn by the superhero syndicate’s streaming options, whether Arrow, The Flash or Gotham’s Netflix presence or beyond. That said, the comic company may opt for some major alterations to its availability, leaving some viewers waiting a year or more for the latest seasons.
