Netflix Will Be Getting Your Favorite CW Shows Faster Than Ever Next Season!

It’s not the home of The Flash for nothing!

The CW is currently offering its most impressive line-up in its nearly 10-year run, so it should come as no surprise that other companies want in.

After winning Golden Globes for both Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and netting best-ever ratings from the Arrow universe over the past two years, the CBS sister channel seems to have grabbed the attention of the biggest superpower in the TV world right now… Netflix!

In fact, the streaming service just announced a new deal with the younger-skewing network that will make it easier for you to watch your favorite shows than ever before.

That’s because for the 2016-2017, most of The CW series’ full seasons will be available on Netflix just 8 DAYS after their finales!

Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos confirmed the news in a statement on Tuesday, saying:

“Netflix members in the US love the great lineup of series from The CW, and we are thrilled to extend the relationship and bring those shows to our members exclusively now, just eight days after their season finales. This is a great step forward with a valued network partner to give fans exactly what they want, when and how they want it.”


Basically, you’ll be able to stream Gina Rodriguez and Rachel Bloom‘s award-winning comedies as well as comic book dramas Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow — and even new shows like No Tomorrow, Frequency, and Riverdale — a week after they wrap up next Spring.

The deal only applies to these seven shows for now… but we bet Supernatural, The 100, and the rest of The CW’s schedule will follow suit in no time!
