The Flash” and “Jane the Virgin,” two of fall’s most well-received new shows, have gotten full-season orders at the CW, the network announced today.

This brings the episode totals to 23 for “The Flash” and 22 for “Jane.”

“The Flash,” which is a spinoff of the network’s well-received “Arrow,” opened with one of the biggest audiences for a CW show in Live+3 (6.2 million), beating ABC and Fox shows in the time period — which is unusual for the network. While “Jane” had more modest numbers, the show’s ratings are an improvement over CW shows in last year’s timeslot (“Beauty and the Beast” and “The Tomorrow People”). It is also a critical darling, with Variety TV critic Brian Lowry praising the show’s charm and star Gina Rodriguez.

“We have had a fantastic start to our season this year, with ‘The Flash’ launching as our most-watched series premiere ever, and ‘Jane the Virign’ recognized as the best new show this season by critics across the country,” said CW prexy Mark Pedowitz. “Over the past three seasons, we have made it our mission to grow and to broaden out our audience, and to keep raising the bar with the quality and impact of our new shows, and ‘The Flash’ and ‘Jane’ have both exceeded our expectations on all counts. I’m thrilled to announce full season orders for both of these terrific new series.”

“The Flash” is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “Everwood”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “Eli Stone”), David Nutter (“Arrow,” “Game of Thrones”) and Sarah Schechter. This series is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment.

“Jane” is produced by CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television, in association with Electus, with executive producers Jennie Snyder Urman (“Emily Owens, M.D.”), Ben Silverman (“The Biggest Loser”), Gary Pearl (“10.5: Apocalypse”) and Jorge Granier (“Que el Cielo Me Explique”).
