CW network bringing back its scripted series
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Young fans of the CW television network won’t have any suspense about their favorite programs. The CW said Sunday that all eight of the scripted series that were part of its fall lineup will return again next season.
The order includes the freshman series “Jane the Virgin,” a critical favorite that is still seeking a larger audience. Other returning shows include “Arrow,” ″Reign,” ″Supernatural,” ″The 100,” ″The Flash,” ″The Originals” and “The Vampire Diaries.”
The CW has achieved modest success with a lineup heavy on zombies and vampires. CW President Mark Pedowitz said the network is slowly broadening its audience by attracting more men. Roughly 60 percent of the CW’s audience is women.
The early order of new seasons for its series gives producers more time to develop stories and plot twists moving forward, Pedowitz said.
