The CW is returning 14 shows for the 2019-2020 season with plans to order additional series when it unveils its schedule during the upfronts.

In an announcement Friday, "Supernatural" stars Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and Misha Collins announce the series will conclude after 15 seasons during the 2019-20 TV season.

Former "The Young and the Restless" actor Max Ehrich (ex-Fenmore Baldwin) will recur in the upcoming Lifetime dramas series, "American Princess."

"The 100" is getting a sixth season on The CW after performing on par with its fourth season average.

After declining to renew its agreement with Hulu in 2016, wherein viewers were provided with next-day access to current episodes of its series, The CW announced today that it will once again offer its programming to the streaming service, at least for subscribers to the Hulu with Live TV (beta) plan. The deal marks a victory for Hulu which now has all five English-speaking U.S. broadcast networks available through its live service.
