“Though we’re just a few weeks into the new season, we wanted to get a strategic head start on next season with these early renewals, which allows our production teams to start laying out story arcs and hiring staff, and at the same time, continues to provide us with a strong, stable schedule to build on for next season,” said CW Chairman and CEO Mark Pedowitz. 

"As The CW’s 2020-2021 season kicks into high gear, we are thrilled creatively with the direction of our first new shows out of the gate, "Walker" and "Superman & Lois," that we wanted to order the additional episodes to complete their first seasons, and we are particularly pleased with the huge success of the launch of "Walker," which debuted as our most-watched series premiere in 5 years,” Pedowitz said.
