Get ready for the new daily show

The Arrowverse’s Batwoman and Legends of Tomorrow cancelled

May 3rd, 2022 by Marc Comments

Despite fighting alien invasions, demons and giant fluffy monsters, The CW’s Arrowverse has been dealt another devastating blow.

After three seasons, Batwoman has been axed and it’s joined by the long-running Legends of Tomorrow which wraps after nine years.

They join Black Lightning (2016-2020) and Supergirl (2015-2020) which were also canceled, while Arrow (2012-2019), the show that kicked-started the whole saga, ended as planned after its long run.

This leaves Superman and Lois, Flash, Naomi and [technically] Star Girl the last two of which are, we’re hearing, dancing on the cancellation faultline while The Flash is planned to wrap after the upcoming Season 9 while Superman and Lois is still being met with solid reviews and looks set to be around for a while longer. This all takes place as word is The CW is still planning the Gotham Knights series.

“Well, folks. It’s been an incredible run,” Legends co-showrunner Keto Shimizu said on Twitter. “However, the CW has let us know that there will be no season 8 of #LegendsOfTomorrow. We are heartbroken, but also immensely grateful for the amazing work our cast, crew, and writers have contributed to the little show that could.

“Thank you to our fans; your love and passion for our strange band of misfits has made every break, every script, every daily, every cut, and every mix worth all the hard work. We see you, we love you, and you’ll always have a place on the Waverider.”

Batwoman showrunner Caroline Dries, also on Twitter, writes: “Just got the sad news that #Batwoman will not be seeing an S4. I am bummed, but full of gratitude.” 

With HBO Max now being the home of DC’s TV and movie worlds, it looks like Warners may be looking to bring all their shows home… eventually.

The CW recently renewaled All American, Kung Fu, Nancy Drew, Riverdale, and Walker.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
