The upfronts to advertising executives are always a season of giving and taking — so with the release of their Fall 2018-2019 television schedule, The CW also confirmed that Jane the Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and iZombie will not be renewed after their upcoming seasons. The Gina Rodriguez-starring Jane the Virgin will end its run after five seasons, with Rachel Bloom's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Rob Thomas's iZombie closing their doors after their fourth and fifth seasons, respectively.
While the announcement doesn't come as much of a surprise to both those affiliated directly the series or their fanbases, the network looks to be continuing its tradition of giving its long-running series enough time to offer viewers a satisfactory finale.
