The CW CEO Mark Pedowitz makes an announcement on Lucifer and the Supernatural spin-off Wayward Sisters, riling up fans about the fate of the shows. The CW also laid down some bittersweet news for iZombie fans while shaking up the schedules for the DC superhero shows.
Changing their programming schedule, The CW announced they’ll be moving the DC content to the beginning of the week. Sunday will be home to Supergirl and the Charmed reboot. Monday will show Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow. Tuesday belongs to Flash and Black Lightning.
Pedowitz spoke on Wayward Sisters, the second attempted spin-off of CW’s Supernatural series, saying:
“We are big fans of the characters and the women who played those characters… We hope they continue on as guest stars on Supernatural… But we did not feel creatively that the show was where we wanted it to be. And we felt we had a better shot with [Originals spinoff] Legacies.”
Fans took to Twitter to use some colorful phrasing on how they feel about Perowitz’s stance. With plans to air the Originals spin-off after Supernatural, some fans plan to show their discontent by switch channels after Supernatural.
iZombie will be seeing a fifth season. Yay! iZombie‘s fifth season will be it’s last. Boo! Fans take comfort in the fact that they’ll be seeing a definitive end to their story. Other tv shows weren’t so lucky.
Fox’s Lucifer, who’s series finale ends in a cliffhanger, has a strong campaign to save the show led by fans and crew of the show. With Pedowitz’s announcement that the CW will focus on its own development and has had no discussion about Lucifer, fans are looking to other networks. Lucifer actor Tom Ellis was on the BBC news to discuss the show and efforts to save it.
CW’s future plans will be expanded on in a presentation called UpFronts later today.
