After announcing the renewal of ten of the titles at the beginning of the year, remaining a state of uncertainty over those still unanswered, the CW chairman decided to shed light on them, officially announcing the renewal of All American, Rosewell New Mexico, In the Dark and the veteran The 100.
Usually there are some projects canceled in the yard just to make room for news – but as the season titles Jane the Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and iZombie end up, they probably felt it was enough little stability does not spoil, especially in the autumn we will say goodbye to Arrow and Supernatural. For the decision to renew, The CW took into account the numbers recorded by the four multi-platform titles and not just the audiences on the station at the live broadcast.
All American: When a young athlete, a rising star for Los Angeles interleaved football, is transferred from Crenshaw High to play the Beverly Hills High team, the hardships, losses and victories, in a word life and the world two completely different families are starting to merge. Inspired by the life of footballer Spencer Paysinger, the project is produced by Robbie Rogers, one of L.A. Galaxy (European football/soccer).
Into the Dark: Murphy is a 20-year-old young woman with a chaotic, disorderly life, whose only delusions seem to be just cigarettes and casual sex. Blind, she lives with Jess, a compassionate young woman and Pretzel, his help dog. Murphy’s life takes an unexpected turn when, on a walk with Pretzel, he discovers in the alley in front of the apartment the corpse of his good friend, Tyson, but when the police arrive at the scene, the young man’s body is no longer to be found. Things are all the more complicated by the fact that the drunkard is not believed by the officers, and no investigation is started – with a blow over the blow, Murphy realizes that the only thing she has to do is to search for herself what happened to Tyson, even if it means to make an effort and to give up the decadent life that seems to have been his only satisfaction to face a new day.
Roswell New Mexico: A love affair threatened by the fear of unraveling the identity of the three, an affair with secrets and conspiracy leading up to the highest level, besides the supernatural side of the project, the new Roswell wants to highlight some of the difficulties of the reality of a young woman from a family of undocumented immigrants and the difficulties faced by the fictional version of the small town of New Mexico. The project is based on Melinda Metz’s Roswell High series of books and is a reboot of the serial produced and broadcast during 1999-2002 by UPN/WB.
Mark Pedowitz, President of The CW said:
“As we begin to plan for the 2019-2020 season, we’re thrilled to have this roster of 14 exceptionally creative and distinctive series, including all five first year shows, as the foundation on which to continue to build the multiplatform future of The CW. One of our key long-term goals has been to continually add more original programming all year round, especially in midseason and summer, and with these returning shows and the new series we’ll order as we get closer to the May upfront, next season on The CW is shaping up to be our most robust year-round schedule yet.”
