THE FLASH, LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, BATWOMAN & Nine More Score Early Renewals; New Trailer Released
It doesn't sound like the Scarlet Speedster will be stopping his run anytime soon as The CW has issued an early renewal for The Flash along with Batwoman, Legends of Tomorrow, and nine more series!
The CW has officially renewed three of their DC TV series - The Flash (Season 8), DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (Season 7), and Batwoman (Season 3) - for new seasons, set to air in 2021-2022.
No word yet on Superman & Lois, but it's likely we'll hear something on that front after its two-hour premiere on February 23rd. Both Supergirl and Black Lightning will end their runs after their coming seasons.
The network has also issued renewals for their runaway hit Walker (Season 2) starring Jared Padalecki (Supernatural) as well as Riverdale (Season 6), All American (Season 4), Charmed (Season 4), Legacies (Season 4), In the Dark (Season 4), Roswell, New Mexico (Season 4), Nancy Drew (Season 3) and Dynasty (Season 5).
With The Flash set to return for its eighth season, it will now become the longest-running Arrowverse series, passing Arrow, and the second-longest live-action DC series ever, behind Smallville.
The first few episodes of the upcoming seventh season are expected to wrap up last season's central story, with the Scarlet Speedster (Grant Gustin) ultimately triumphing over the Mirror Master (Efrat Dor), but then, the majority of the season will shift its focus to a dangerous new threat that Barry has inadvertently released.
Check out the official season seven trailer below!
Barry Allen lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry's life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with superspeed and making him the fastest man alive - The Flash. After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen. With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow, Cisco Ramon, Ralph Dibny, and Nash Wells, as well as the Flash's adoptive father Joe West, Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton, tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk... Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he'll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team - and his marriage - apart.
The Flash returns with a brand new episode on March 2
