Netflix Has a Great New Surprise for Binge Watchers
This is awesome news.
Now you'll no longer have to wait months to binge watch the latest season of Jane the Virgin or Flash. Netflix announced that your favorite CW scripted shows will start streaming on the site only eight days after a season ends.
The change will take effect for the 2016-2017 season, meaning will have to wait another year (which gives you ample time to catch up if you’re not already watching). Besides the already mentioned shows, the deal also includes the network’s roster of superhero series: Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, and Arrow. You’ll also be able to stream new seasons of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Vampire Diaries, The 100, iZombie, The Originals, and Reign.
“This is a great step forward with a valued network partner to give fans exactly what they want, when and how they want it,” Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix, said in a statement.
You might remember when The CW made a previous deal with Netflix in 2011, allowing users to binge on old favorites like One Tree Hill, Supernatural, and Gossip Girl.
