Burden of Truth, The Outpost and 3 More Shows Renewed at The CW!

at .

The CW's fall season gets underway tonight with the premieres of The Flash and Black Lightning, but the young-skewing network is already looking ahead to its summer 2019 schedule. 

With that in mind, Burden of Proof and The Outpost have both landed renewals for additional seasons.

Burden of Proof was already renewed by CBC, its Canadian broadcaster earlier this year. It is somewhat surprising The CW is keeping the series around with anemic ratings. 

Burden of Proof Season 1 averaged a 0.1 rating in the 18-49 demo. The Outpost averaged the same 0.1 rating for its 10-part first season.

The CW brass has been open about wanting to have original programming year-round, so maybe lower rated shows that come at a heavily reduced price tag is the way forward for the network.

There will also be a new scripted offering joining the two scripted dramas next summer:

Bulletproof, a U.K. drama series that follows two undercover criminals taking down some of the toughest criminals in London's East End. 

The two officers come from different backgrounds, and it means they have different beliefs about how criminals should be taken down.

The first season will span six-episodes and has already been renewed for a sophomore run in the United Kingdom.

On the unscripted side of things, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, Masters of Illusion and Whose Line Is It Anyway? have all secured additional seasons.

The CW Quotes

I’m sorry, Donna, but I’m the ultimate wild card. I am the daughter of The Black Hood. The nightmare from next door. I’m training with the FBI and I’m coming for you, you psycho b****! Not Joan, not Jonathan, not even Brett. Just you.


Kevin: Okay, Veronica, I’m obsessed with everything that just happened.
Veronica: Thank you! It helps to be off-book and in full costume.
Betty: Don’t be so modest, you are the literally embodiment of Chris. Never has a role been perfectly typecast.
Archie: Betty!
Veronica: What was that, Betty?
Betty: I mean think about it: Spoiled rich girl, check. Major daddy issues, check. Bad to the bone, trying to control everyone around her, including her boyfriend and best friend. Check, check, check.
