In one fell swoop, the CW has just made its 2019-20 TV roster much more clear.

The network has officially handed out renewals for 10 of its original series this afternoon. The titles that will be returning on the network next season are “The Flash,” “Arrow,” “Supergirl,” “Black Lightning,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “Riverdale,” “Charmed,” “Legacies,” “Dynasty,” and “Supernatural.”

“This season, we expanded our primetime schedule to six nights with the addition of Sunday — which has been an unqualified success for the network, our affiliates and our advertisers. In addition to growing our schedule across the week, we also continue to add more year-round programming. The early renewal of these signature CW series gives us a head start on laying out the 2019-2020 season, and this is just the beginning,” said CW President, Mark Pedowitz.

“These shows provide a strong foundation for our multi-platform programming strategy, and we look forward to building on this with even more returning and new shows as we approach the May upfront.”

With this announcement, the only CW shows still waiting for renewal are “The 100,” “Roswell, New Mexico,” and “All American.” The fate of “In the Dark,” which hasn’t premiered yet, is also still in the air.

News on the other titles will likely come closer to the upfronts in May, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, “Jane the Virgin” and “iZombie” will both be returning with their final seasons in the coming months. “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” is currently working its way through its final run as well.
