If the CW happens to be your favorite network, and you can’t get enough of their addictive TV shows, we’ve got some good news for you. No less than 12 of its most popular series got an early renewal for the 2021-22 season, including Riverdale, The Flash, and Walker.

The CW Television Network president, Mark Pedowitz, announced the early renewal in an official statement and added it gives showrunners a strong, stable schedule to build on for the next season.

“Though we’re just a few weeks into the new season, we wanted to get a strategic head start on next season with these early renewals, which allows our production teams to start laying out story arcs and hiring staff,” said Pedowitz.

The list of renewed shows mostly includes projects that already proved to be a huge hit for the CW, such as Riverdale, The Flash, Dynasty, Legacies, and Legends of Tomorrow. Walker is one of the rare newcomers to score a renewal, after debuting as the network’s most-watched series premiere in five years. All American, Batwoman, Charmed, In the Dark, Nancy Drew, and Roswell, New Mexico have also been renewed for a new season.
