The CW just added another three series for the 2019-20 season!
If you were betting that women would be the newest heroes of The CW, pat yourself on the back.
Batwoman, Katy Keene, and Nancy Drew will all be flying high on the network.
We've already seen a bit of what Batwoman can do during the massive crossover event last fall.
With Ruby Rose as the titular character aka Kate Kane, she mixed it up with the Arrow team to help save the world.

In addition to Rose, the cast also includes Dougray Scott as Kate's father, Jacob, a former military colonel who helms Gotham's private Security firm The Crows.
His mission is to protect Gotham better than the Dark Knight ever could, while his daughter, as we know, is a highly trained street fighter and tasked with snuffing out the failing city's criminal resurgence.
The cast is rounded out with Rachel Skarsten (Reign) as Alice, the Joker-esque leader of the Wonderland Gang; Meagan Tandy (Teen Wolf) as military academy graduate Sophie Moore; Camrus Johnson (Marvel’s Luke Cage) as Lucius Fox’s son, Luke; and Nicole Kang (YOU) as Kate’s step-sister, Mary Hamilton.
Lucy Hale returns to The CW as Katy Keene, an Archie Comics character who will be responsible for luring Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray) to leave the Pussycats behind for the Big Apple.
Their world is populated with kindred-spirit starving artists, including mysterious socialite Pepper Smith (Julia Chan) and Broadway-bound performer Jorge Lopez — and his drag queen alter ego, Ginger (Jonny Beauchamp). While their climb to the top is rife with obstacles, this found family will stop at nothing to see their names in lights.
Newcomer Kennedy McMann plays Nancy Drew in the third incarnation of this popular series to try to make it to air. Congrats!
A family tragedy keeps the 18-year-old from her college ambitions, and she'll be investigating a murder-mystery and uncovering secrets while college waits.
Batwoman was written by Caroline Dries who will also executive produce alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, David Nutter and Director Marcos Siega.
Katy Keene comes from writers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Michael Grassi, who executive produce alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics CEO and Publisher), and director Maggie Kiley.
Nancy Drew is penned by Noga Landau, Melinda Hsu Taylor, Josh Schwartz, and Stephanie Savage who also executive produce wtih director Larry Teng and Lis Rowinski.
