Not a big shock, given that the majority of its prime-time programming is now driven by comic book exploits, but today at the Television Critics Association press tour, The CW announced that it would be renewing all of its DC adapted series. This includes a sixth season for Arrow, a fourth season for The Flash, and third seasons for Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Left out of the announcement are renewals for iZombie and Riverdale, but given that they both premiere at midseason this month, there’s a bit of wait and see at play.
Additionally, the network revealed that the NBC-cancelled Constantine series would be returning in animated form on CW Seed. Matt Ryan will reprise the role, much as he did in his Arrow guest-appearance last season. A small victory for those who have missed this show. This new Constantine series will join Vixen and Freedom Fighters: The Ray on the web based network. It was premiere in the 2017-2018 season and will consist of five or six 10 minute episodes.
