Fans of The CW shows All American, The Flash, Kung Fu, Nancy Drew, Riverdale, Superman & Lois and Walker can breathe a sigh of relief. Their shows have been renewed for another season and their fan faves will be back on their screens in the 2022-23 TV season.
The announcement came from Mark Pedowitz, Chairman and CEO, The CW network. “As we prepare for the 2022-23 season, these scripted series, along with the alternative series we renewed earlier, will serve as the start of a solid foundation utilizing some of our most-watched series for us to build on for next year and beyond,” said Pedowitz. “These dramas are also important to our overall digital strategy, as they are some of our most-streamed and socially-engaged programming, and we look forward to adding more new and returning series to help strengthen and expand our multiplatform footprint.”
The current series being ordered for the 2022-23 season include new seasons of ALL AMERICAN (Season 5), THE FLASH (Season 9), KUNG FU (Season 3), NANCY DREW (Season 4), RIVERDALE (Season 7), SUPERMAN & LOIS (Season 3) and WALKER (Season 3). These early renewals are in addition to the previously announced alternative series renewals of PENN & TELLER: FOOL US (Season 9), MASTERS OF ILLUSION (Season 9) and WORLD’S FUNNIEST ANIMALS (Season 3). Specific premiere dates for each series will be announced at a later time.
Still hanging in the balance are long-running series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Vampire Diaries spin-off Legacies, freshman sci-fi reboot, The 4400, and the revamped Batwoman and Charmed series. Freshman series All American: Homecoming and Naomi may be too early in their runs for a decision. More to be revealed next month at the network upfronts for The CW on May 19th.
