The deal between The CW and Netflix, first announced in 2011 and re-upped in 2016, is not being renewed, according to Deadline. Reportedly, new CW series Batwoman, Nancy Drew and Riverdale spinoff Katy Keen are being shopped individually for streaming deals by their respective studios. The deal’s end, however, doesn’t mean new CW shows won’t end up on Netflix – the service won’t get them automatically, and will instead have to bid in a more competitive environment.

CBS revealed that its recently ordered sixth season of Madam Secretary will be its last. Network President Kelly Kahl promised that the 10-episode season would tie up storylines and send the show off “with a great deal of respect and celebration.” The network also unveiled its new slate of programming, touting an improvement in diversity. Chuck Lorre’s Bob Abishola stars Folake Olowofoyeku as the love interest for Billy Gardell’s Bob, a middle-aged compression sock businessman who falls for his cardiac nurse, a Nigerian immigrant. Drama All Rise, starring Simone Missick as Judge Lola Carmichael, follows the chaotic lives of those working in a Los Angeles courthouse. Psychological mystery drama Evil stars Mike Colter as a priest-in-training and a carpenter, who works with a female psychologist as they investigate the Church’s unexplained mysteries. Meanwhile, three popular actresses are featured in new projects. Patricia Heaton stars in Carol’s Second Act about a woman who pursues a career as a doctor, after a divorce and raising children. Midseason drama Tommy is headlined by Edie Falco, who portrays a former high-ranking NYPD officer who becomes the first female Chief of Police for Los Angeles, while comedy Broke stars Pauley Perrette as a single suburban mother who takes in her estranged sister, formerly wealthy husband and his loyal assistant, after the couple’s money dries up.
