All 11 scripted series currently on air to return

In an unprecedented move, The CW has decided to forego canceling any of its series, choosing instead to renew all 11 scripted shows currently airing, according to Deadline.

That means popular series like The FlashArrow, Vampire Diaries, The 100, iZombie, Reign and Jane the Virgin will be returning alongside new shows like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Legends of Tomorrow. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's first season won over critics and took home a few awards, while Legends of Tomorrow premiered to incredibly high ratings and has maintained a steady audience.

Supernatural will also be returning for its 12th season, with stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles reportedly signed on for an additional 13th season.

Despite not canceling any of the series, it doesn't look like The CW is planning to skip this upcoming pilot season. According to Deadline, the network is still looking to add two or three shows to its fall roster and will premiere it's newest series, Containment, next month.

Even with the renewals, however, ratings are down for a number of shows, which may indicate their upcoming seasons could be final. Ratings for The Vampire Diaries and its spinoff series The Originals are down from last year and the shows' main stars may be looking to move onto other ventures.

The CW has not yet announced what they'll be ordering to pilot for the fall, but that information should be revealed closer to the summer season.
