Flarrowverse Shows Might Be Coming to Netflix Much Faster
With their Hulu deal expiring, The CW is nearing a deal with Netflix to extend their streaming deal. And if this deal goes through, it will likely be beefed up so all of your favorite CW sci-fi shows, including The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, The 100, and soon Supergirl, will start streaming only two weeks after the season ends.

Young viewers, like the ones who watch CW shows, are increasingly moving away from live cable television in favor of streaming shows after they air. As a result, The CW is coming out with their own streaming service for in-season streaming, which all but eliminates the need for a deal with Hulu, which usually streams the latest five episodes of CW shows. After discussions with Hulu ended last week without a deal, it looks like the in-season streaming will be entirely handled by The CW's streaming service.

But for those of you who don't want to sign up for a separate streaming service, you might be in luck, because the latest Netflix deal will bring new seasons of all CW shows to your queue much, much earlier. Usually, new seasons don't come out until right before the next season begins, which is inconvenient for fans who want to catch up, not to mention a long wait. The new deal would allow seasons to come out after as little as 14 days after the season finale, and would give Netflix access to all CW shows for several years after they end.

The negotiations are still underway, so it's not a sure thing by any means, especially since it would likely be a very expensive deal. But with Netflix reportedly planning to increase their prices soon, they will need to give subscribers incentives to stay, and new Flarrowverse seasons would go a long way.
