The CW house cleaned up in a big way because it was a bloodbath for the network as a total of seven of their shows were canceled and some choices were more surprising than others.
After the dust settled, the departures included Grid the originals’ Role legaciesAnd DynastyAnd NaomiAnd in the darkAnd Roswell, New MexicoAnd CharmAnd 4400. Some of these decisions were made to make way for it Gotham Knights and pop-ups from Walker And supernatural, which ordered the chain. The main reason for the mass exodus is mainly due to rumors of an upcoming sale of the network (possibly to a group affiliated with Nexstar) and thus its uncertain future.
Perhaps the most important cancellation legacieswhich is part of originalswhich I linked to CW’s long-lasting base materials, The Vampire Diaries. Now that Legacies is over after a four-season tour, it’s also ending for 13 years The Vampire Diaries A world of shows that spanned across that series, originalsAnd legacies.

Next is DynastyA reboot of the ’80s heyday soap. The series is currently broadcasting its fifth season, but it will be the last in the show. Dynasty It was considered among the most underrated CW series to secure renewal because its live ratings have always been consistent. Despite poor ratings in the past, Dynasty Renovations have always faltered because it has sold so well internationally due to the brand name of it being a reboot of the popular original series and because of the money generated for CBS Studios through the Netflix deal for the show.
