The CW has given full season orders to The Flash and Jane the Virgin.
The network picked up both of its freshman dramas for the rest of the season. “We have had a fantastic start to our season this year, with The Flash launching as our most-watched series premiere ever, and Jane the Virgin recognized as the best new show this season by critics across the country,” said Pedowitz. “Over the past three seasons, we have made it our mission to grow and to broaden out our audience, and to keep raising the bar with the quality and impact of our new shows, and The Flash and Jane have both exceeded our expectations on all counts. I’m thrilled to announce full season orders for both of these terrific new series.” We’re hearing that Flash was picked up for an additional 10 episodes and Jane for nine (both received an initial 13 episodes).
The Flash opened to 6.1 million viewers including three days of DVR playback. Jane bowed more modestly, but this week apparently at least held steady. The two shows join Fox’s Gotham, ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder and Black-ish among new shows that have received a full-season pickup.
