While they are modest-to-poor ratings performers, Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend are both critical darlings who are prestige shows for the network and have garnered the only major Emmy and Golden Globe nominations in the network's history.
CW president Mark Pedowitz said that while many shows are seeing shorter seasons, the network's comic book shows lend themselves well to full 22-plus episode seasons seen in more traditional television scheduling.
Early comebacks of these seven series now permit the producers to prepare ahead of time for following season.
"I was hoping for a bat mitzvah this year, the 13th season", he joked.
Speaking of the final season of The Vampire Diaries, is there any news of former series star Nina Dobrev returning for the series finale? "Constantine" will be returning as an animated show for CW Seed.
While dates haven't been confirmed for any of the live action series, Arrow will be entering its sixth Season, The Flash zooming into its fourth and Legends and Supergirl will be soaring into their third runs.

Pedowitz added that no decision had been made on the renewal of either program, but noted that there was no way the network could have gone beyond 13 episodes for each, given that the network had five new and returning shows to debut at mid-season.
Since considered as continuously viewed CW Network series, "Supernatural" season 13 is a push for its following fall, and expected to drive the thrill for viewers.
The CW went on a renewal binge early Monday morning on January 9, giving an early renewal to seven current series. The so-called "Arrow-verse" superhero shows lack the hype of DC's big-screen outings and Marvel's Netflix series, but they've amassed a loyal niche following, thanks in no small part to crossover events like the recent "Heroes vs. Aliens" team-up.
Missing from the list of renewals are midseason veterans "iZombie, ' 'The 100, ' and 'The Originals, ' though that's not necessarily surprising since none of the series have premiered their new seasons yet".
Supernatural, now in its twelfth season, is The CW's longest-running original program and will go for a highly impressive thirteenth season. The network just renewed all your favorite shows!
