I’ve heard nothing but good things about The Flash, so I shouldn’t be surprised with The CW officially announcing that the new superhero series will be picked up for a second season. Additionally, the network announced new seasons for Arrow (Season 4), Jane the Virgin (Season 2), Reign (Season 3), Supernatural (Season 11), The 100 (Season 3), The Originals (Season 3), and The Vampire Diaries (Season 7). I don’t watch these shows, but I know that their fanbases are fiercely devoted, and The CW’s business model allows for shows that many not tear up traditional Nielsen ratings, but do a great job in retaining and maintaining an active audience.
Hit the jump for the press release.
