The CW Cheat Sheet: What Will Be Canceled?

at .  Updated at . Comments

The CW has a lot to think about as it heads into midseason. 

With most of their shows down in the ratings, there's pretty much no guarantee that every show will make the cut for another season. 

Previously, the network has taken great pride in renewing pretty much everything, but that will probably change this season. 

It's worth noting, when considering these figures, that The CW is currently averaging a 0.54 rating among adults 18-49 with original programming. 

The CW announced in advance that Reign would conclude this Spring after four seasons. It's crazy they did not just announce the final season back when it was picked up, but at least fans can take solace in knowing they have another season with Mary Queen of Scots. 

Frequency and No Tomorrow end their freshman runs in January and there's a good chance that neither will be back. 

With The CW's Flarrowverse shows serving as their top four series, will they add another? Probably. 

If you want to see how the other networks are stacking up, we have separate posts for ABC, Fox, CBS and NBC

Note: The Originals, iZombie, Reign, The 100 and Riverdale will premiere at mid-season.

1. The Flash - Renewed

The Flash - Renewed
The Flash is down around 15 percent from Season 2, but the show is in no danger and probably won't be for a good few years. In live + same day ratings, the series is averaging 3 million viewers and a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49. The superhero hit is swelling over 90 percent in live +7 ratings.

2. Supergirl - Renewed

Supergirl - Renewed
Supergirl made her transition from CBS to The CW and the show has emerged as the number 2 series on the network. The show is currently averaging 2.7 million viewers and a 0.9 rating. The superhero drama is tripling what Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was doing in the slot last fall. It's safe.

3. Arrow - Renewed

Arrow - Renewed
Arrow has sprung a leak in Season 5. The show is down almost 30 percent vs. last year, averaging 2 million viewers and a 0.7 rating. As always, the show gets a sizeable bump in delayed viewing. The series has been steady and is still considered one of the bigger series on the network.

4. DC's Legends of Tomorrow - Renewed

DC's Legends of Tomorrow - Renewed
DC's Legends of Tomorrow is down almost 20 percent in Season 2, but it's still performing well enough to stay on the air. Season 2 is averaging 2 million viewers and a 0.7 rating. The CW is moving the show in January to benefit from the best lead-in they can offer it. It will be back.

5. Supernatural - Renewed

Supernatural - Renewed
Now in Season 12, this drama is as resilient as ever. In most recent averages, the series is up 5 percent vs. last year. 1.8 million viewers and a 0.7 rating is not bad for The CW. The only thing that could come between a renewal is if the leads want out.

6. Jane The Virgin - Renewed

Jane The Virgin - Renewed
Jane is benefiting from the Supergirl lead in in Season 3 and is currently up almost 10 percent vs. last year. The show is averaging 1 million viewers and a 0.4 rating. It does not make much of an impact in delayed viewing, but it's hard to imagine The CW cutting Jane out of its 2017 schedule. The show will be just two episodes shy of the required amount for syndication at the end of the season. As long as it still puts The CW on the map in terms of awards nominations, it will be safe.
