The CW Orders Full Seasons of The Flash, Jane the Virgin

at . Comments

Like the main character of one of its two new shows, The CW has acted very quickly in dubbing The Flash and Jane the Virgin a success:

After two episodes of each, the network granted full-season orders to both of its fall debuts.

The Flash Season 1 Episode 1 was the most-watched hour of CW television since The Vampire Diaries opener in 2009.

Jane the Virgin, meanwhile, actually built upon its premiere audience last night with Jane the Virgin Season 1 Episode 2.

"We have had a fantastic start to our season this year, with The Flash launching as our most-watched series premiere ever, and Jane the Virgin recognized as the best new show this season by critics across the country,” network president Mark Pedowitz said in a statement.

"Over the past three seasons, we have made it our mission to grow and to broaden out our audience, and to keep raising the bar with the quality and impact of our new shows, and The Flash and Jane have both exceeded our expectations on all counts. I’m thrilled to announce full season orders for both of these terrific new series."

Both of these shows have been very well reviewed by critics and both are covered in depth each week on TV Fanatic. Won't you bookmark us and join us for recaps, reviews, quotes, Round Tables and so much more?

The CW Quotes

Veronica: What the hell is a "Sticky Maple"?
Kevin: It's kinda what it sounds like. It's a Riverdale thing.
Veronica: No, Kevin, it's a slut-shaming thing. And I'm neither a slut nor am I going to be shamed by someone named, excuse me, Chuck Clayton! Does he really think he can get away with this? Does he not know who I am?! I will cut the brakes on his supped-up phallic symbol.

Penelope: Cheryl Marjorie Blossom! What have you done?!
Cheryl: Isn’t it obvious, Mother? I saved Christmas. Look how happy Nana Rose is.
Penelope: You spoiled wretched little brat. How do you expect to pay for all of this?!
Cheryl: Oh, I was thinking...maybe you could go to Mr. Lodge for a job? Of course, he’d probably ask what skills you have and you’d be forced to admit that only skill you have is being a terrible mother. So I guess you’re gonna have to get creative in the New Year.
[Cheryl leaves]
Nana: You should have drowned them at birth, like a basket of kittens.
