New shows from The CW starting from the 2019-2020 TV season and onwards will no longer automatically come to Netflix as The CW did not renew their deal with the streaming giant. In 2011 The CW signed a deal with Netflix to be able to stream new shows such as “The Flash”, “Arrow”, “Jane the Virgin” and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” just 8 days after their season finale airs. Netflix also co-produced the hit shows “Riverdale” and “Dynasty” which is marketed as a Netflix Original outside of North America with new episodes being added on a weekly basis – Netflix will retain the subscription streaming rights to these shows.
It is important to note that existing shows are not affected by this change – i.e. the shows mentioned above won’t all suddenly be removed any time soon. The changes only affect new shows that premiere in the 2019-2020 TV season and Netflix will still be able to bid for the streaming rights for upcoming shows like the “Nancy Drew” and “Katy Keene” series; it just won’t be an automatic process.
