iZombie Episode Order

iZombie, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Snag Additional Episode Orders at The CW

Ratings shmatings.

The CW has ordered additional episodes of Nielsen weaklings Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and iZombie, TVLine has learned.

Well-reviewed rookie comedy Crazy Ex, which attracted less than 1 million viewers last Monday, has received an order for five more episodes, bringing its Season 1 total to 18.

Meanwhile, iZombie — which last week lost 65 percent of its Flash lead-in — nabbed an order for six additional episodes (for a Season 2 total of 19).

    Yessssss! great news, as I watch, and love, both shows! Wish more people would watch!

  2. Carolina says:

    iZombie is such a good show! Wish more people would watch. Glad it is getting more episodes.

  3. Steven says:

    I hope these shows are somehow renewed. They’re both really terrific.

  4. Gilded Lady says:

    Those are odd totals, and what about the mid-season newbies?! Are they getting bumped to summer?

  5. flutiefan says:

    YAY for Crazy Ex!!! it’s such a cute show that gets no love. i wouldn’t even know about if, if not for this site and 1 huge billboard i pass on my way home from work.

  6. militantgod says:

    I just assumed iZombie was going to get 22 episodes so I’m disappointed. Doesn’t seem like the CW has much optimism for the show.

    • brandydanforth81 says:

      The CW Dosent have enough schedule space for practically every show to get 22 (Fladh,Arrow,SPN,VD,TO,JtV) the showrunner prefers shorter seasons

      • johnhelvete says:

        I completely agree about the lack of space on the schedule, if the CW did not believe in iZombie they would have kept it at 13. Rob Thomas has changed his mind on preferring shorter seasons for iZombie though (he talks about breaking 22 episodes for season 2 in an interview with a rival website to this one).

      • militantgod says:

        Every show runner would prefer shorter seasons. That has nothing to do with the CW not giving them a full 22 episodes like I’m sure they will be giving Arrow/Flash/TVD/The Originals/Supernstural. They don’t say “well, Rob Thomas only wants to do 13 so that’s all we’ll give them”.

    • AMB says:

      Yes, I was hoping for a full season order too. It’s a step in the right direction…

    • Gail says:

      Perhaps it will be possible for Tinkerbell and Dr Whale to visit Once Upon A Time before the end of the current season.

  7. Nicolás says:

    Im so happy about Crazy Ex… is a pure joy show!

  8. Annie says:

    I love Crazy Ex! I think is the wittiest show

  9. Lori says:

    So happy about Izombie love that show

  10. Mr. Tran K says:

    Hope Crazy Ex-Girlfriend gets one season tops. No word on when DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will premiere especially for an air date.

  11. BillyBobJohnson says:

    iZombie is a very good show. Glad to see there will be more episodes.

  12. Gerald says:

    Love iZombie. Glad it got more. Lets hope the ratings increase.

  13. John NYC says:

    Great news for iZombie!

  14. LynnH says:

    Crazy Ex is a joy to watch. There are times when it reminds me of Flight of the Conchords. Incredibly clever.

  15. AMB says:

    Happy to read this. I’m a fan of both these shows and have been waiting for news on their fates. I was hoping for full seasons but this is good.

  16. DreamRose311 says:

    Excellent news across the board!! iZombie is excellent, I really wish more people were watching it. I can see Crazy ExGirlfriend not being for most people, but it so quirky and different. It is ridiculous in a good way and I can’t stop watching.

  17. brandydanforth81 says:

    Not suprised about IZombie but shivked& confused at CEG cause it’s ratings are terrible & CWs schedule is full.That said I enjoy both sorta

  18. MFL says:

    Yay for iZombie…abit surprised about CEG though.it hardly ever gets 900K viewers.
    Now waiting for more Reign episodes

  19. Simon Jester says:

    Great news for the CW’s two best shows.

  20. retsim says:

    Good to see iZombie has a few more episodes.

  21. TJ says:

    I adore Crazy Ex! :D

  22. dan says:

    I’m glad they’re standing behind Crazy Ex Girlfriend. Or maybe she’s threatening them. It’s such a strange show. I hope people catch on that it’s something special.

  23. LE says:

    They should have given a full 22 episode season to izombie :/.. don’t care for CEG but I’m surprised that it got additional episodes because the show is not a hit at all and the CW has Legends of Tomorrow, Contigent and the 100 waiting, anyway I’m happy for the people who watch the CEG.

  24. Frank says:

    Any word on Significant Mother?

  25. Jason says:

    I love how everyone’s happy for iZombie :D
    I just hope the ratings tick up more, so we can get a third season. :)

  26. Chris Leonardi says:

    It’s not really fair to call IZombie low rated. Flash is basically the Empire of the CW, it’s not fair to compare other shows to it. When looking at the network average, IZombie is right there on it.

  27. SarahJP says:

    I’m so pumped about Crazy Ex Girlfriend, it’s my favorite new show this year! I wish TV Line would give it more love, seems lim it would be right up Slezak’s alley.

  28. Jeri says:

    Yay!!! Love iZombie!! Watched the 1st Crazy Ex. show but couldn’t get into the singing.

  29. Sheila says:

    I really like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Maybe the ratings would be better if the advertising was better!

  30. ninergrl6 says:

    Great news! I love both shows!

  31. Keith says:

    Great news, I love both of these shows. For a CW show, the numbers aren’t that bad for iZombie and Crazy Ex.

  32. Jeff Rittenour says:

    Izombie is great. I’ve been trying to tell people to watch it. They need to cross this show into the arrowverse. Have Liv eat a metahuman brain and boom – there’s an episode for Grant to appear in as BARRY not Flash. It’s a dc property anyways. C’mon.

  33. elyn says:

    i love this show!!!!!!!

  34. Amberly S says:

    I love them both (and I’m way too old to do so)!

  35. A. Callins says:

    I love Izombie. I wish she would go zombie a little more often but still a fan.

  36. You’re gonna drop from “The Flash” if you’re not about another known entity… That written, unlike Joss Whedon, Rob Thomas has proven female-led shows on The CW are what he knows how to do (why even Jeremy Piven/”Ari” couldn’t get “Cupid” to work).

  37. Kathy W says:

    Yay I enjoy the show

  38. Jean says:

    I Zombie rocks!
