The CW Cancels Winchesters, Walker: Independence, Kung-Fu

The CW network is going in a new direction so that means it’s basically canceling all of its shows which happens to include the Supernatural prequel The Winchesters, Walker: Independence, and Kung Fu.

On the bubble includes Superman & Lois, Gotham Knights, and All American: Homecoming.

The only renewed shows are All American and Walker.

If I had to guess, I’m guessing Gotham Knights will get canceled as the ratings are pretty bad.

Hopefully, Superman & Lois gets renewed for Season 4 or it gets shopped around as it’s a really great show. James Gunn has said there will be another two seasons or so, as people like the show, so if The CW happens to axe it, maybe it will land on HBO Max for a couple of seasons or even Prime Video.

Prime Video recently picked up three Batman projects from WB, so why not Superman & Lois Season 4?

Update: Variety offers that American: Homecoming, Superman & Lois, and Gotham Knights the shows “are in doubt as the site says still awaiting word on their fates, though none are expected to continue at this time.”

The CW canceled Walker: Independence after one season, The Winchesters after one season, and Kung Fu after three seasons.

The CW as a network has never been profitable so now that it’s owned by Nexstar, they obviously want that to change, so instead, they are going to focus on unscripted and lower-cost scripted programming.

Jensen Ackles is backing a campaign to save The Winchesters so maybe it will get shopped around.

“This crazy gang put this together in a matter of hours. Now let’s see what this fandom can do!” posted Ackles on Instagram.

Kung Fu star Olivia Liang also thanked the cast, crew, and the fans.

“It has been the honor of my f-cking life to work with this group of humans. We made a historic three seasons of a show, the first predominantly Asian cast in a one-hour network drama, and the first Asian American female showrunner,” said Liang. “I don’t have enough words (or room in this carousel) to express my gratitude to my show-runners, my writers, my cast, my stunt team, my fucking crew… I love you all. I truly won the lottery. They are all the kindest, smartest, funniest, most hard-working people in the biz. I am so, so, so proud of the work we did. Thank you to everyone who invited us into your homes and watched our little show that could. Cheers to Kung Fu, the show that changed my life forever. I love you Nicky Shen.”
