When Supergirl was renewed last week we rejoiced… tonight we shall drink in celebration.

Or watch the week’s TV we missed out on. Whatever.

Anyway, The CW has announced its renewals for the 2016-2017 season and we’re glad to say their DC trio (and iZombie, the Vertigo-inspired series) have all made it as well as seven other shows.

The renewed shows are:

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow
The Flash
Jane The Virgin
The Originals
The Vampire Diaries
The 100

“The CW has become home to some of the most critically-acclaimed shows on broadcast television,” said The CW’s President, Mark Pedowitz.

“With a wide array of fantastic scripted series across the week, ranging from musical comedy, to superhero action, to gritty sci-fi dramas. As we continue to further our strategy of more year-round original programming, picking up these 11 series for the 2016-2017 season puts us in a great position of having proven, high-quality shows to launch in the fall as well as midseason and summer of 2017.”

This puts Arrow into its fifth season, The Flash into its third and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow into its second. iZOMBIE heads into season 3. All great news for fans of comics and TV.

No air dates are known yet but you know we’ll keep you up-to-date.

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….
