With the season half over for television series, CW has already set a lineup for next season, starting off with news for another spinoff for "Arrow."

According to the Hollywood Reporter, CW President Mark Pedowitz said in the Television Critics Association press tour that the network is already discussing the expansion of the "Arrow" and "Flash" universe.

Pedowitz declined to give out more information, however, "Arrow" executive producer Greg Berlanti clarified that the potential addition may be based on Arrow's recurring character, Ray Palmer / Atom, played by Brandon Routh.

However, according to Berlanti, "We're in very early talks in a very general idea that we haven't gone deeper on yet." He also talked about the expanding DC universe, saying that "We just love this universe and we want to keep growing it. We are trying to do more of what we enjoy, and it's true: the shows are so plentiful with characters and storylines. There's a region of the universe that we felt like we haven't dealt with yet that we'd like to deal with."

But while talks are ongoing about Routh's new superhero character, CW just made dreams of its viewers come true as it announced the renewal of eight shows for the 2015/2016 season.

The shows that will be returning include "Arrow" Season 4, "The Flash" Season 2, "Jane the Virgin" Season 2, "The Vampire Diaries" Season 7, "The Originals" Season 3, "The 100" Season 3, "Reign" Season 3, and "Supernatural" Season 11.

According to E! News, most of the renewals are not a big surprise, considering the large number of fans supporting "The Vampire Diaries" and "Supernatural." The freshmen shows, "The Flash" and "Jane the Virgin" also exceeded expectations, with Gina Rodriguez winning her first Golden Globe for her performance as Jane Gloriana Villanueva, a religious Latina woman who was artificially inseminated by mistake.

Although most of the shows were shoo-ins for another pickup season, "Reign" and "The 100" came as a surprise as they were considered "bubble shows" and were soft in ratings.

Deadline did note however, that not all the shows will be picked up for 22-episode runs, with "The 100" for instance, being ordered for only 16 episodes in its second season.

Pedowitz explained why they started renewals early, explaining, "Each of these series have helped define what The CW is today, a network that is home to smart, provocative, quality programming, targeting a savvy adult audience. By picking up these shows now, our executive producers can start planning next season's storylines, and rolling these shows out throughout next season guarantees. The CW will have more proven original series for our fall, midseason and summer 2016 line-ups."
