Confirming the earlier reports, The CW officially announces renewals for Superman & Lois, The Flash, and more.
The Flash will get a Season 9, which was previously said to be the last starring Grant Gustin featuring a shorter season.
Superman & Lois, the highest-rated of the DC shows on The CW, gets a Season 3.
Additional renewals include All American, Kung Fu, Nancy Drew, Riverdale, and Walker.
No word yet on Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman, or the new DC show, Naomi.
Worth a mention is that the renewals come following the approval of Warner Bros. Discovery, and it has previously been reported The CW network makes no money, so as far now, the DC shows and The CW are going to continue moving forward in some form.
