The CW announced today that every show from its fall lineup will return for another season in fall 2015. So – good news – your favorites are safe! This television season thus far has been memorable to say the least – with events such as a milestone 200th episode for tried-and-true Supernatural, and a compelling crossover between superhero epics Arrow and newbie to the genre The Flash. Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals shows promise in its own right as it is renewed for a third season, a point not many spinoffs reach, and the hit newcomer Jane the Virgin gives representation to both the hispanic and female parts of the network’s viewership, addressing issues that not many of the network’s shows to date have dared to discuss.

Here’s a look at the shows returning to the CW next fall:


Season 4

“Spoiled billionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing and presumed dead when his yacht is lost at sea. He returns five years later a changed man, determined to clean up the city as a hooded vigilante armed with a bow.”


Jane the Virgin

“A young, devout woman discovers that she was accidentally artificially inseminated.”




Season 3

It details the secret history of survival at French Court amidst fierce foes, dark forces, and a world of sexual intrigue.”


Season 11

“Two brothers follow their father’s footsteps as “hunters” fighting evil supernatural beings of many kinds including monsters, demons, and gods that roam the earth.”


The 100

Season 3

“Set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, when a spaceship housing humanity’s lone survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.”
