Arrow, Flash, and Legends Included in The CW's Renewal Spree

In a similar style to last year, the CW has chosen to renew every scripted television series currently airing on their network. In some cases this isn't surprising; their DC Comics shows Arrow, The Flash and newcomer Legends of Tomorrow have been strong performers, while Supernatural has also held onto its remarkable popularity despite its age.
However, up until now some of the CW's shows were far from a sure bet for renewal. Indeed, despite critical acclaim shows like Jane the Virgin and particularly Rachel Bloom's new addition to the slate musical-comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend have struggled to find an audience. The renewal of both shows can be put down in large part to their awards nominations, with Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez winning Best Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy at the 2015 Golden Globes (the first win the CW has ever received at that ceremony), while Rachel Bloom walked home with the same award at this year's show for her work on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
The full list of renewed CW shows can be found below:
The 100 renewed for season four
Arrow renewed for season five
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend renewed for season two
The Flash renewed for season three
iZombie renewed for season three
Jane the Virgin renewed for season three
Legends of Tomorrow renewed for season two
The Originals renewed for season four
Reign renewed for season four
Supernatural renewed for season twelve
The Vampire Diaries renewed for season eight
The CW has one new series yet to air, titled Containment. Only time will tell if that show will be fortunate enough to gain a renewal as well.
