The CW announced today that The Flash has been renewed for a third season. The sophomore action drama was breakout hit for the network in 2014, building on the success of Arrow and finding its own dedicated audience which has kept it going strong in Season 2. Certain supporting characters from both shows have since been spun off to a third superhero series, Legends of Tomorrow, which was also renewed today.
Along with its entire superhero lineup, The CW also picked up all of its other series today for the 2016-2017 season, including The Originals, Reign, The Vampire Diaries, The 100, Jane the Virgin, iZombie, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and Supernatural.
