There have been rumors that The CW renewed The Flash and Jane the Virgin for second seasons today. Unfortunately for fans of these series, it’s not true — at least not yet anyway.
The rumor apparently stems from an article from the CW station in Tampa that said both had already been renewed. The article has now been updated to say “Editors note: An earlier post incorrectly stated that The Flash and Jane The Virgin had been picked up for season 2, when the ratings and critical acclaim earned both shows full orders for their first season.” It’s not uncommon for people to confuse a full season order with a renewal, in part because some sites report them as a renewals.
While neither have been renewed yet, The Flash will surely be back for a second season. The ratings have come down quite a bit since its premiere but the show still has the best demo and viewer numbers on the network — by far.
Jane the Virgin’s fate could go either way. It’s well-respected but it’s got the lowest viewership and some of the weakest demo numbers on The CW. We likely won’t know its fate until the spring.
What do you think? Do you like either or both of these series? Would you like to see them return for second seasons?
