The CW has given fans a glimpse of what to expect for its 2021-2022 season.

As the network prepares for the next round of shows to release, it has picked up 12 series for additional seasons. These include its new series, Walker, along with network veterans such as The Flash, Batwoman, Legends of Tomorrow, All American, Charmed, Dynasty, In the Dark, Legacies, Nancy Drew, Riverdale and, finally, Roswell, New Mexico. Of all the ones set to come back, five of them — The Flash, Dynasty, In the Dark, Legends and Roswell — have yet to premier their season this 2021.

This only leaves first-year shows Superman & Lois, The Republic of Sarah and Kung Fu awaiting for additional information on any future renewals. Though this is the case, Superman & Lois has ordered two more episodes for a 15-episode season. Walker orders five more, bringing up its series tally to 18 episodes.

CW President Mark Pedowitz explains the added episodes saying, “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 five years.”

DC projects, Black Lightning and Supergirl spearheaded by super-producer Greg Berlanti wrap up their shows this season. With the conclusion of these series, it leaves the network with room for at least two more titles to add to CW’s 2021-22 repertoire.

The early renewals are expected to help The CW’s efforts in returning to the normal production development calendar, which Pedowitz has mentioned in the past hoping to be back to schedule by October.
