And the partnership between Netflix and The CW continues.

The CW has reached a new multi-year agreement with Netflix, which allows Netflix to remain the exclusive U.S. subscription television service for previous seasons of The CW’s scripted series.

Under the new deal, Netflix members will be able to stream full seasons for each show starting eight days after each show’s season finale. The first season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and the second season of Jane the Virgin are already available.

The deal not only includes all current CW series — The Flash, The Vampire Diaries, Supergirl, and more — but expands to future programs that will air during the term of the new agreement, which launches with the 2016-17 season. Frequency, No Tomorrow, and Riverdale are included in the upcoming season.
