Why Mon-El's Supergirl departure was necessary
"When you remove that love story from the equation, you get a clearer picture of why this story ended the way it did," says Lindsay MacDonald. "Mon-El had established a life in another time (seven years there versus the few months he had on Earth), and that story was consistent with the comics that placed his character in the Legion of Superheroes. The show has deviated from the comics often enough that doing so in this instance wouldn't have been out of the question, but I'm honestly glad it didn't."

Greg Berlanti inks a Warner Bros. TV mega-deal that could be worth $400 million
Berlanti, who now produces a record-breaking 14 TV shows, will stay with Warner Bros. TV through 2024 under his new pact. The deal is only for his TV work. Berlanti, who recently directed Love, Simon, has a separate film deal with Fox. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the deal is "worth $400 million in all-cash guarantees," adding that Warner Bros. executives "aggressively pursued Berlanti for a new deal. Berlanti, who values loyalty, is said to have been happy at the studio and did not take meetings with any other outlet despite interest from Netflix, among other outlets." (Other sources say the deal is worth "more than $300 million.")

The CW unveils its fall schedule, says it will air more hours of scripted TV next season than ABC, NBC and Fox
Supergirl and Charmed will be paired together on Sundays as The CW reclaims that night after nearly a decade. Arrow moves to Mondays and Jane the Virgin will kick off its final season in midseason. “Starting in October, we will have 12 hours of original scripted series on our schedule – more than any other broadcast network besides CBS,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz. He adds of pairing Charmed and Supergirl: "We wanted to have an established show on Sunday night. We wanted name value with Charmed, on there. We felt that it was two shows that empowered women and were making a statement that we were not kidding, we were not going to phone it in on Sunday nights — That we were going to compete.” ALSO: CW won't rescue Lucifer.

CW renews 10 shows, including Riverdale, Jane the Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Dynasty
Black Lightning, Arrow, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Supernatural and Supergirl will also be back next season. CW shows yet to be renewed include The 100, iZombie, Life Sentence and Valor. The most baffling renewal is Dynasty. "Midway through its freshman run, Dynasty recently slipped to an almost mythical 0.1 demo rating, though Nicollette Sheridan’s debut as Alexis seems to have resuscitated the numbers, some," as Matt Webb Mitovich points out. UPDATE: Rachel Bloom tweets Season 4 will be Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's "final season."

Greg Berlanti on former Arrowverse showrunner Andrew Kreisberg: “I was shocked, I was disappointed, I was confused”
Berlanti, who’s been juggling 10 shows across his Berlanti Productions, says he first learned of the sexual harassment allegations against Kreisberg one week before they were published in Variety. Berlanti says he did know that Kreisberg had anger management issues, but not about the sexual harassment complaints. “I was shocked, I was disappointed, I was confused,” Berlanti tells Variety. “But my overwhelming desire then and to this moment was how can I fix this, how can I help people that may have been hurt in any way. That is still the predominant feeling I have about all of it. So that supersedes all of the other feelings and emotions.”
