The CW network just landed in hot water with viewers. They made some shocking decisions this week. The network canceled Charmed, Dynasty, Legacies, and Naomi, among others. They managed to anger multiple fanbases at once. Some of the viewers have threatened to “boycott” the station.

The company is in the midst of a massive merger with WarnerMedia-Discovery. That means they have to forgo most of their programming. On Thursday, May 12, they announced that they have to cancel the aforementioned programs, including The 4400 and Roswell, New Mexico. Fans aren’t happy and have taken to social media to share their frustrations.

The CW canceled many shows

The CW has canned many shows. This comes a few months after it canceled and renewed several shows. Naomi and The 4400 only lasted one season on the network. The CW is trying to revamp itself in the midst of its merger with Discovery.

The Charmed and Roswell reboots were canceled after four seasons. Even the popular series Legacies and In The Dark have been canned. Some fans are holding out hope for the future of these shows. Since In The Dark and Dynasty have a massive international fanbase on Netflix, it’s likely that the streaming service could pick them up.

Dynasty was one of the longest shows that were on the chopping block. Their fifth season will be their last. While it wasn’t popular on the network, it attracted a global market on Netflix.

This comes after the news that ViacomCBS and WarnerMedia may sell The CW to WarnerMedia-Discovery, which attracted a new generation of younger viewers. It had a promising run with hit shows like Riverdale and Walker. However, the CW can’t be profitable on its own, while ViacomCBS and Warner Bros. can get value for the shows they produce.

This is why the network had to can most of their shows this week.¬†However, fans aren’t happy. They have stormed social media in light of this news. Some of them are planning to boycott the network.

  • “WHAT THE HELL?”
  • “WTF WHYYYYY??? NO, I WILL NOT ACCEPT THIS!”
  • “Cancel Riverdale instead.”
  • “The CW canceling Dynasty is my villain origin story.”
  • “Literally Dynasty was the last decent thing they had IMO. Yes I’m p*ssed.”

  1. To be honest the CW has one of the worst in dramatic acting I’ve ever seen in almost all of their shows. I mean I was a former English major when I was in college and I’m sorry but I think this merger with the next star might be a good thing in my opinion. I mean who knows maybe this merger might actually give the CW some quality acting that is sorely, sorely, missing in almost all of their show’s which is pretty evident to me because I’m a former viewer of the CW and I really think it’s about time for a serious change for that station in my opinion. You can agree or disagree with my statement.
