In an unprecedented move for a broadcast network, the CW announced Friday that it has given early renewals to every current series on its schedule.

Ratings may not be all that great for some of the shows, but CW President Mark Pedowitz showed extreme confidence in his slate, ordering pickups for the 10 series comprising its current schedule as well as “Reign,” which resumes its third season next month. Given that CW has numerous pilots in contention to join the lineup next season, it’s clear that the network’s strategy will be to spread out these renewed series across fall, midseason and summer.

Among the pickups are rookie series “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” and veterans “Supernatural” and “The Vampire Diaries.” “Supernatural,” which began on The WB in 2005, will be back for its 12th season, which will include the drama’s 250th episode.

“The CW has become home to some of the most critically acclaimed shows on broadcast television, with a wide array of fantastic scripted series across the week, ranging from musical comedy, to superhero action, to gritty sci-fi dramas,” said Pedowitz. “As we continue to further our strategy of more year-round original programming, picking up these 11 series for the 2016-17 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.”

The series being ordered for the 2016-17 season are: “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (season 2), “Jane the Virgin” (season 3), “The Flash” (season 3), “iZombie” (season 3), “Arrow” (season 5), “Supernatural” (season 12), “DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” (season 2), “The 100” (season 4), “The Vampire Diaries” (season 8), “The Originals” (season 4) and “Reign” (season 4).

The CW handed out early renewals to 11 series, including The Flash, Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, iZombie, Reign, Supernatural, and The 100, EW has learned.

In short, the network picked up everything that is currently on the air, though that doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll all debut in the fall. Some will hit the airwaves for midseason or even summer 2017.

The renewal of Supernatural for a 12th season makes it the longest-running in CW (and WB) history. Previously, 7th Heaven held the honor, ending after 11 seasons.

“The CW has become home to some of the most critically-acclaimed shows on broadcast television, with a wide array of fantastic scripted series across the week, ranging from musical comedy, to superhero action, to gritty sci-fi dramas,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz. “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.”

Those superhero shows he’s talking about rank as the top 3 for the network, with The Flash leading the way in both total viewers and the 18–49 demographic (5.67 million, 2.3), making it the most watched series in the history of The CW. Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow follow with 4.26 million, 1.7 and 3.99 million, 1.6, respectively.

Legends and its Thursday night companion The 100 have also brought a 56 percent bump in total viewers and 30 percent bump in the demo on the night versus the fall, where The Vampire Diaries and The Originals had long called home. For their part, the Julie Plec vampire dramas have improved Friday night by 39 percent in total viewers and 60 percent in the demo versus the same time last year.

Premiere dates and episode counts are expected to be announced at a later date.
