You might have been wondering, but it’s now confirmed true: The CW’s Stargirl is currently running through what will be its last season. According to executive producer Geoff Johns, they were aware of this fact months ago and tailored the show to have a definitive ending. Hopefully that means Cindy Burman will finally get her act together.
Hurry and finish your plate — the Claw is about to close its doors for good. The CW and the producers of Nancy Drew have confirmed the upcoming fourth season of the series will be the last one.
When Superman And Lois returns in 2023 to what’s left of The CW, you might notice one character looks and sounds a bit different. Jordan Elsass, who played Jonathan Kent in the first two seasons of the series, is departing voluntarily. The series has picked a replacement: Australian actor Michael Bishop.
We knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make it hurt any less: Warner Bros and Paramount confirmed the plan to sell off their jointly-owned broadcast network The CW to nationwide station owner Nexstar is a go. Nexstar will take 75 percent ownership of the network, while WB and CBS will take 12.5% shares each, allowing them to continue producing original scripted content for the thing, though not nearly as much. CEO Mark Pedowitz will remain in his position as head of CW for now.
The Arrowverse was quite something. It managed to do what its big brothers in the theater could not — an interconnected, fully realized DC Universe of heroes with a devoted following, and on a very small fraction of a movie budget (the flop Justice League probably cost as much as three seasons of the entire Arrowverse lineup). With the impending sale of The CW and the subsequent dumping of most of its content, the only remaining series to take place in the Arrowverse is its longest running (no pun intended): The Flash.
The number of decent CW originals is dwindling, but we at least have Stargirl for one more year. Miss Blonde-Curls will be flying back in just before fall for another season on the network.
Y’know how most networks reveal their full weekly schedule for the fall in May? The CW is just now getting to that, two months late. Perhaps the recent shakeup behind the scenes contributed to this, but however it happened, we didn’t know what was going where until now.
John Diggle made a guest appearance on Superman And Lois last night. He was first introduced on the TV series Arrow, a show that spawned a whole low-budget TV universe of superheroes. That universe seems to be dying now, but when it was in its prime, it was glorious. At least bits and pieces of it are still alive, for now…The Flash is hanging in there (barely), and Superman And Lois is going strong….oh, wait.
When you cancel all your shows, this is what you get. The CW just released the details on what it plans to do next season, and it’s nothing much.
We don’t know what the future of The CW will be just yet, but we don’t take this as a good sign: the network just picked up three new shows for the 2022-23 season, but cancelled SEVEN.
I speak of the CW series that goes by that name, not any kind of comic book plotline where Batwoman dies and comes back to life. There won’t be any resurrections for THIS one — The CW has officially cancelled the show.
Surprise — we just went from knowing next to nothing about the Nancy Drew spinoff Tom Swift to having a clear premiere date AND a thorough series description. We even have a promotional image (see above). Up to this point, the only hint at what this show would be like was the backdoor pilot episode from Nancy’s second season. I have seen that episode, and assuming Tom’s character hasn’t changed from that appearance, I can describe him like this:
