The CW has picked up just about all of its current schedule for next season — not a huge surprise, as the network is expanding to a sixth night of primetime programming in 2018-19.

Ten current shows will be part of the network’s lineup next season, ranging from The CW’s top-rated show, “The Flash,” to one of its lowest-rated, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” The other renewals are first-year series “Black Lightning” and “Dynasty” and veterans “Arrow,” “Jane the Virgin,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” “Riverdale,” “Supergirl” and “Supernatural.”

“As The CW expands to a six-night, Sunday through Friday schedule next season, we are proud to have such a deep bench of great returning series for 2018-19,” CW head Mark Pedowitz says in a statement. “By picking these 10 series up for next season, we have a terrific selection of programming to choose from when we set our fall schedule in May, with more still to come.”

Missing from the list are fourth-year show “iZombie” and freshmen “Valor,” which is likely done, and “Life Sentence.” There’s also no word yet on “The 100,” which premieres April 24. (“The Originals” begins its final season April 18.)
