The CW Gives Early Renewals to Ten Current Series

April 2, 2018 (Burbank, CA) — The CW Network has given early renewals to ten of its primetime series for the 2018-2019 season, it was announced today by Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW.  The pick-ups include all but one series from the network’s 2018 Fall season with its longest-running current series, Supernatural, looking at a 14th season.  In addition to the four returning DC series, mid-season newcomer, Black Lightning, has also been renewed.

I don't binge-watch, I power-watch. I'm a major television junkie, but I love movies, too. I embraced my geek style at the turn of the millennium and have run with it since then. I have been working in the entertainment industry since forever, but it hasn't dulled my sense of wonder whenever I watch a great movie or an absorbing television show. I love genre -- sci fi, horror, fantasy -- in particular, I love vampires, the supernatural, space westerns, some slasher pics and stories / movies / shows related to witches and wizards. I also love comedies -- they make life easier. I've been traveling with Whedonopolis (http://www.whedonopolis.com/) since 2007 and writing for the site since 2008. I'm always up for an interesting conversation about the latest casting and plot twists on my favorite shows and movies. The views expressed on these web sites are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of any of my employers, past or present (or future).
