The CW’s Cancellations Strike Again With Dynasty, Charmed and More Shows Being Axed

Posted 2022/05/13 5 0

Following the cancellation of Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman, The CW has not as much swung the ax but instead wielded a sweeping scythe with the announcement of the cancelation of several high-profile shows, including the new DC series Naomi after just one season. Coming on the heels of the shock announcement surrounding the Arrowverse series, fans of In the Dark, Dynasty, 4400, Roswell, New Mexico and Charmed have been dealt a similar blow as all have five series have not been given renewals. While the rumors of a sell-off of the network continue, with claims that The CW has never made a profit since its creation in 2006, this latest wave of cancellation has taken out almost a third of the remaining shows, leaving only The Flash, Superman & Lois, Riverdale, Nancy Drew, Walker, All American, and Kung Fu on the slate.

After the cancellation of the other DC shows, it looked like the remaining Arrowverse shows would be safe. Naomi only arrived on the network this year with a lot of promise as a stand-alone show, with no real connections made to the rest of the Arrowverse series. However, today the superhero series became the first additional property to be given the chop. Still, it was certainly not alone as the Grim Reaper of TV Shows glided through The CW’s list of scripted content without mercy.

Original series In the Dark is possibly the least surprising of the cancelations. A newer addition to The CW’s line-up, the series about a blind detective premiered on the network back in 2019 and its fourth, and seemingly last, season is set to make its debut next month. Of the other series to also be caught in the cull is Dynasty, based on the classic 80s soap, which was looking to be renewed for a sixth season, while Charmed and Roswell, New Mexico are gone after four seasons, and 4400 has been dropped following just one season.

Fans Need to Enjoy Their Favorite The CW Series While They Can

While the news of this purge of popular shows will come as a blow for fans, many of these shows are still to air their final episodes. While 4400 and Naomi have both ended on the network, Dynasty and Charmed are currently in the middle of their now-final seasons, with several episodes still to be shown. In addition to that, Roswell, New Mexico and In the Dark still have a full season to come. Fans should make sure they make the most of these episodes, as even though there is a possibility that some of these shows could make a movie on one streaming platform or another, there are no guarantees of that happening.

There are still several current shows running at The CW, with some renewed already for further seasons, and of course, they also have new shows such as Gotham Knights, The Winchesters and the Walker prequel both in development. While Supergirl’s future has not been announced, The Flash is expected to end following its ninth season, which would only leave Superman & Lois from the many Arrowverse shows that were once one of the network’s biggest pulls. With so few scripted shows remaining, it is almost as though the future of The CW itself has already been decided.
