The Flash Batwoman Superman and Lois DC HBO Max The CW

The CW announced the renewal of The Flash, Batwoman, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow with more Superman and Lois season one episodes also on the way.

The DC universe that lives on The CW appears to be sticking around for at least another year. Despite the network ending shows like Supergirl and Black Lightning, the network is staying committed to The Flash, Superman and Lois, Batwoman, and Legends of Tomorrow.

For the 2021-2022 season, The CW revealed The Flash will return for its eight-season, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow for its seventh, and Batwoman will be back for its third. We’ve already known that Superman and Lois received a straight to series order, but The CW is now adding two more episodes to its first season to make it 15 total.

Here is the official synopsis for The Flash season seven:

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with superspeed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton).

With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)… Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.

The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, and Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton.

The Flash will return to The CW on Tuesday, March 2 at 8ET. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming seasons of the DCTV shows, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original content.
