Accordingly, CW has canceled two more series The Hollywood Reporter. These include kung fu And Supernatural spin-off The Winchesters.

What shows have been canceled by The CW?

The move comes as broadcaster owner Nextstar continues to cut back on its planned programming. Kung Fu ran for three seasons and The Winchesters only one. The shows join a growing list of canceled content on The CW, including first-year show Walker: Independence.

In a statement about the move, the network called the move “difficult” as they continue to “reinvent the CW” and thanked the cast and creative teams on both shows for their work.

“As we reimagined the new CW, we had to make some difficult programming decisions,” the broadcaster said in a statement. “We thank our partners at Warner Bros. and the cast and creative teams at Kung Fu and The Winchesters for all their hard work, creativity and dedication.”

At the start of the 2021-22 television season nearly two years ago, The CW had a total of 18 original script shows. That number has since dropped to 5 and could fall further, according to THR. The report said The CW has yet to decide on three shows, including DC dramas Superman & Lois and Gotham Knights, and spin-off All American: Homecoming.

THR notes that “All American” and “Walker” have been renewed and that The CW is considering launching in the fall with just two original scripts. The remainder of the schedule consists of “unscripted series and lower-cost imports.”
