CW 2018 Fall Schedule: ‘Jane the Virgin,’ ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,’ ‘iZombie’ to End

Next season will be the last for three CW dramas: “Jane the Virgin,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” and “iZombie.” The network confirmed Thursday that all three shows will end following 2018-19 as it announced its fall schedule for the upcoming season.

“Jane the Virgin” and “iZombie” will end at five seasons and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” will end at four.

Speaking to reporters Thursday morning, CW president Mark Pedowitz said of the canceled series, “We will miss each of those shows in terms of what they’ve done. They’ve helped the perception of the CW across the board.”

The CW will expand into Sunday nights with a returning superhero series and a reboot of a signature supernatural drama from its predecessor’s past.

The new Sunday-night block will begin with “Supergirl,” one of five superhero dramas from Warner Bros. and Greg Berlanti on the fall schedule. In recent years, the network has spread its DC Entertainment series out, saving some until midseason. But in 2018-19, the broadcaster will frontload all five shows in the fall. “Supergirl” will be followed by “Charmed,” a freshman reimagining of the supernatural series about sisters with magical powers that aired on the WB from 1998 to 2006.

The CW announced in February that it would next season launch a two-hour Sunday primetime block, expanding its linear lineup of original programming from five nights a week to six.

Mondays will be the first of two consecutive nights of DC Entertainment shows, with “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” at 8 p.m. and “Arrow” at 9 p.m. Tuesdays will feature “The Flash” at 8 p.m. and “Black Lightning” at 9 p.m. Wednesdays will begin with “Riverdale,” followed by another new series, “All American.” “Supernatural” will continue at 8 p.m. Thursdays followed by new drama “Legacies,” a spinoff of “The Vampire Diaries” franchise. Fridays will feature “Dynasty” at 8 p.m. and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” at 9 p.m.

Among the shows the CW will hold until midseason is “Jane the Virgin,” which remains one of the network’s most critically acclaimed series. Other midseason shows are the returning “iZombie” and “The 100,” as well as new shows “Roswell, New Mexico” and “In the Dark.”

Pedowitz also on Thursday addressed the network’s decision not to pick up pilot “Wayward Sisters,” the most recent attempt at a “Supernatural” spinoff, to series. “We did not feel that creatively the show was where we wanted it to be and we had a better shot with ‘Legacies.'” Pedowitz has spoken often about wanting a “Supernatural” spinoff on the network’s air, but several attempts have halted at the pilot stage.
