The CW Orders a Full Season of The Flash. After only three episodes, The CW gives The Flash a full-season order giving the superhero drama 23 episodes for its freshman season. The full-season pickup comes after The Flash gave record-breaking ratings for the network for the first two weeks.
The CW gave the good news in a press release on their site that The Flash received full-season order of 23 episodes, similar to when Arrow first premiered to good numbers and received a full-season pickup. “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,” Pedowitz added.
The good news was also given by leading man Grant Austin on Twitter when he tweeted this: “Yay The Flash! So happy for this cast & crew…There will be 23 episodes for you this season! THANK YOU for tuning in.”
The first episode of The Flash premiered with 4.83 million viewers, thus giving The CW it’s best numbers in more than four years. With it’s DVR numbers, the Fastest Man Alive increased viewership to 6.1 million viewers. So are you glad that The Flash has gotten the full-season treatment?
