Netflix and The CW are making some changes to their relationship.
An agreement which states that The CW’s shows will automatically head to Netflix a week after the show finishes its broadcast run is about to expire, and the deal won’t be renewed. This means that new CW series including Katy Keene, Nancy Drew, and Batwoman won’t necessarily go to Netflix.
Deadline reports that the shows may still be snapped up by Netflix, but now, new shows will be shopped around on a series-by-series basis. In other words, The CW will no longer hand all of their shows over to Netflix, and will instead let other streamers bid for their originals.
The good news is that the currently airing slate of CW series (Riverdale, The 100, The Flash, etc etc) will still run on Netflix for the duration of their life.
The now-expiring Netflix/CW deal has sent all CW originals to Netflix eight days after their series finale premieres over the airwaves, which has been great for those who don’t have old school TV access.
Deadline reports that Batwoman is one of the shows that will likely never appear on Netflix. That’s because the WB-owned series starring Ruby Rose will be held for the upcoming streaming app being developed by WarnerMedia. Katy Keene (a Riverdale spinoff starring Lucy Hale) and Nancy Drew are said to be of interest to Netflix.
The developments are a reflection of the ever-evolving streaming landscape. Still, CW viewers can rest easy knowing that their favorites are remaining on Netflix for the foreseeable future.
