      A U.S TV network has good news for fans as well as Vancouver's film and TV production industry—which is also good news for B.C.'s economy.

      The CW announced today (April 2) that it has renewed six TV series shot in Vancouver for the 2018-2019 season.   

      The hit Archie adaptation Riverdale will be back for a third season. The show wrapped production on its second season on March 21.

      In November, an economic analysis revealed that the series injected upwards of $60 million into the B.C. economy.

      In the meantime, a related series, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, based on the character Sabrina the Teenage Witch, has started filming its first season on March 19 and will continue until December 5. Two seasons have already been ordered for the series.

      The superpowered Arrowverse TV series have all been renewed: Arrow (Season 7), DC's Legends of Tomorrow (Season 4), The Flash (Season 5), and Supergirl (Season 4).

      The Flash finishes shooting its fourth season on April 21, Arrow wraps up production on its sixth season April 26, and Supergirl finishes on April 28. DC's Legends of Tomorrow called it a wrap on February 28.

      The good news comes several months after the firing of showrunner Andrew Kreisberg in November in response to sexual misconduct allegations from 19 women and men.

      The longrunning Supernatural has been renewed for its 14th season. It will wrap production on its 13th season on April 19.

      Premiere dates have not been announced yet.
