And the axe continues to fall. Not long ago, we learned that The CW had cancelled two of its DC Comics-themed shows: Batwoman and Legends of Tomorrow. Now, Variety reports that the network has cancelled Naomi, about a young Superman fan who sets out to solve a supernatural mystery. The show got a full first season, but that’s it.
And that’s just the start of the bloodbath. The CW has also cancelled its reboots of Charmed, 4400, Dynasty, and Roswell: New Mexico, as well as the drama In The Dark.
Why is all this happening? Well, joint owners Warner Bros. Discovery and CBS are planning to sell The CW (not sure who’s buying yet), and they want to clean house a bit before handing over the keys.
What shows does The CW still have?
While the axeman is hacking left and right these days, The CW actually still has a lot of programming still on the air, including:
- The Flash
- Superman & Lois
- Kung Fu
- Nancy Drew
- All American
- All American: Homecoming
- Penn & Teller: Fool Us
- Masters of Illusion
- World’s Funniest Animals
And they have a few new shows on the way, including Gotham Knights, Supernatural prequel The Winchesters, and Walker prequel Walker: Independence.
