CW Renew/Cancel: Once Again, iZombie is Likely to be Renewed

Welcome to the CW Renew/Cancel Watch. In this installment, I have the prediction for iZombie, plus a downgrade for, you guessed it, Dynasty. Here are the predictions as of March 2, 2018.

Final Season
Certain to be Canceled
Likely to be Canceled
Likely to be Renewed
Certain to be Renewed
The Originals

Crazy Ex- Girlfriend

Black Lightning

Jane the Virgin
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow




The Flash

iZombie: In this installment, this show is in the headline. Despite the fact that the show premiered at the same premiere rating as Valor, this show is likely to be renewed. Why? You might ask. Episode count matters in this case. Last season, The 100 was in a similar situation and got renewed. iZombie will only have 58 episodes at the end of its current season, which is the fourth season. In the Pedowitz era, no CW show in recent history has been canceled with less than 70 episodes. Also, the CW is expanding to Sunday nights next season, which means more shows will air. For these reasons, iZombie is likely to be renewed.

Dynasty: Abysmally rated Dynasty has been downgraded once again. This season, the most polarizing prediction has been this show. I've had it at likely to be canceled and then at likely to be renewed. This week, it's moving down to a toss up. It's moving to Fridays starting next week and usually a Friday move equals cancelation. But the Sunday expansion gives us pause, and something has got to air. Until we see ratings for the Friday episodes, we'll leave it in the Watching column for now.

This concludes a rushed CW Renew/Cancel. Stay tuned for more prediction updates.
