The CW Announces Early Renewals For 2021/22

It’s not even Upfronts week, but the CW has already announced renewals of 12 shows for the 2021/22 TV Season.

Among the announcements, and perhaps unsurprisingly, is freshman series Walker, which premiered Jan. 21 to 2.44 million viewers, and a score of 0.37 among adults in the 18-49 same day demographic. Walker has not only secured a green light for Season 2, but has also bagged 5 additional episodes for the current season. The newly inflated episode count stands at 18.

Meanwhile, Superman & Lois, the CW’s new Superman sequel, starring Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch (premiering Feb. 23) has also nabbed 2 additional episodes, bringing the count for Season 1 to 15.

“Though we’re just a few weeks into the new season, we wanted to get a strategic head start on next season with these early renewals, which allows our production teams to start laying out story arcs and hiring staff, and at the same time, continues to provide us with a strong, stable schedule to build on for next season,” said CW chief Mark Pedowitz.

“As The CW’s 2020-2021 season kicks into high gear, we are thrilled creatively with the direction of our first new shows out of the gate, Walker and Superman & Lois, that we wanted to order the additional episodes to complete their first seasons, and we are particularly pleased with the huge success of the launch of Walker, which debuted as our most watched series premiere in 5 years.”

The current series being ordered for the 2021-2022 season are:

BATWOMAN (Season 3)
CHARMED (Season 4)
DYNASTY (Season 5)
THE FLASH (Season 8)
IN THE DARK (Season 4)
LEGACIES (Season 4)
NANCY DREW (Season 3)

Specific premiere dates for each series will be announced at a later time.
