Netflix Won’t Renew its Streaming Deal with The CW

Netflix Won’t Renew its Streaming Deal with The CW

First established in 2011 and reasserted five years later in 2016, the deal between Netflix and CW's parent companies CBS and Warner Bros. - which allowed for CW series like Arrow, Riverdale, The Flash, and more to be available for streaming on Netflix immediately after each season ran its course on the network - was up for a second renewal this spring. But CW is declining to renew that deal for its future shows, planning to shop new shows like Batwoman to other services.

It remains to be seen whether The CW can withstand the loss of the $1 billion streaming deal it's had with Netflix, which has helped the network retain profitability. The old shows will still stay on Netflix, with new seasons, for the foreseeable future. Seasons of CW series that have aired through the now running 2018-2019 broadcast season will still swap over to Netflix once their respective season finales premiere.

The deal expiring doesn't mean that The CW shows, especially new ones, will never be added to the streaming service, according to the report. This slate of shows includes Dynasty, The Flash, and Riverdale, which just recently ended its third season on the small screen.

She reached the fourth round before withdrawing ahead of a much-anticipated clash with Maria Sharapova due to a shoulder problem. The American, 37, was set to play sister Venus Williams in the second round but said she would be "concentrating on rehab" now.

Firstly that means all The CW shows will say on Netflix for now.

Pretty much every company is renegotiating deals and moving shows around, from Futurama's recent jump from Netflix to Hulu, to the ongoing debate over whether Netflix will be able to hang onto popular libraries like The Office or Friends longterm.

I hear the three new CW series - Batwoman, Nancy Drew and Riverdale spinoff Katy Keene - are being shopped for streaming deals individually by their respective studios. Viewers could get caught up on past seasons on the streaming service and then catch the new season in the fall, as happened with Riverdale. Put simply, this would let The CW and the studios that produce these shows negotiate their own separate streaming deals. Starting with Captain Marvel, all new Disney movies will debut on Disney+, and once their current deal expires you can expect films like Avengers: Infinity War and Mulan to move there as well. Katy Keene's production company and distributer Warner Bros. It was great to have all the shows added eight days after the season finale airs on The CW. That doesn't mean that these series won't still end up on Netflix, but Netflix no longer has automatic rights to them - the streaming giant will now have to bid against competitors. Of note: Batwoman is owned by Warner Bros. TV could have pulled all their shows from Netflix at one time.
