The CW Renewals: All Four DC Comics Series to Return

Silas Lesnick

Mar 11, 2016

The CW has given early renewals to 11 of its primetime series for the 2016-2017 season! The CW renewals list includes the shows Arrow, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, iZombie, Jane The Virgin, The Originals, Reign, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries and The 100.

“The CW has become home to some of the most critically-acclaimed shows on broadcast television,” says The CW’s President, Mark Pedowitz, “with a wide array of fantastic scripted series across the week, ranging from musical comedy, to superhero action, to gritty sci-fi dramas. As we continue to further our strategy of more year-round original programming, picking up these 11 series for the 2016-2017 season puts us in a great position of having proven, high-quality shows to launch in the fall as well as midseason and summer of 2017.”

These CW renewals mean that the network’s small screen DC Comics universe will continue to expand. Arrow moves into its fifth season, The Flash into its third and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow into its second. iZOMBIE, based on the comic book series released under DC’s Vertigo imprint, will meanwhile be gearing up for its third season.

The other CW renewals give the musical comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend a second season and the soap opera satire Jane the Virgin a third. The Vampire Diaries, then, moves into its eighth season with its spinoff series, The Originals, prepping for its fourth. Reign, the network’s 16th century fantasy romance, will also head into a fourth season as will the science fiction drama The 100. Supernatural, finally, closes out the list of CW renewals as the long-running series looks forward to season 12.

Specific premiere dates for each of the 11 series will be announced at a later time, so check back for updates as they become available.

Executive Producer Teases Legends of Tomorrow Season 2

SuperHeroHype

May 20, 2016

WARNING: Spoilers for the finale of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

The first season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow came to a close last night on The CW and it concluded with some very specific words that comic fans were excited to hear.

In the closing minutes of the episode, the team is preparing to enter their time-traveling ship, The Waverider, when another Waverider appears in the sky above them and crashes to the ground. A lone survivor exits from the wreckage, making the claim that if they got on that ship they’d all die and that he was sent back by Heat Wave himself, Mick Rory. But who is this mystery man? He reveals himself as Rex Tyler (the superhero Hourman), a member of the Justice Society of America.

“With his final words in the finale, he planted a pretty deep flag about where we’re headed in season two, which is not just introducing Hourman but introducing his teammates in the Justice Society of America,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim tells The Hollywood Reporter. “For comic book fans, everyone knows the Justice Society is really the precursor to the Justice League, so it’s a pretty big move in our DC universe here on TV.”

A precursor to the Justice League of America, the Justice Society made its debut in the 1940s and in addition to Hourman its members included the likes of Doctor Fate, The Spectre, Hawkman, Sandman, The Atom, The Flash, and Green Lantern. It’s unclear which of these members will appear in the series or if characters from other versions of the team will be chosen for Legends.

Guggenheim went on to further talk about Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, revealing the Legends would pick up where the (now abolished) Time Masters left off.

“One of the other big things we’ve done in the season finale is we planted another flag in the form of Rip’s [Arthur Darvil] statement. Because the Time Masters are essentially gone and the Legends have destroyed the Oculus, that all means that someone else has to do the job of the Time Masters. Our Legends take that on as their new responsibility. It’s sort of like, you break it, you buy it.”

Finally, though he wouldn’t reveal who just yet is the primary antagonist, Guggenheim offered a tease for the Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 big bad, saying:

“The season two big bad is actually not going to be the [alien race of] Thanagarians. It’s going to be something else entirely. All I’ll really say about the nemesis in season two is Vandal Savage looks like a walk in the park compared to what the Legends will be facing. This will be a much, much bigger threat. I’m going to leave it at that because when we do reveal it, it’s going to be pretty big. People will be asking, ‘Vandal who?’ once they get the full picture of what our team is up against. It’s going to be way bigger than what you can even imagine, I can guarantee it.”

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursdays on The CW.
