This will be the last season...

Besides no more Thunder, Lightning and Grace Choi, it’s all relevant news as its cancellation (along with Supergirls) might possibly clear some of Berlanti’s plate (and the CW’s schedule) to make room potentially for some of his other “on topic” projects in the works like Wonder Girl or PPG....

....or could be a harbinger for cutbacks in the superhero tv genre.  Time will tell....

I think CW oversaturated the market a little bit. At one time, there were a total of six superhero shows on the same channel.

I think Willow got it right in one.
As much as I love most of these shows, there were some real issues of "too much of a good thing". In fact I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better to have one work on a anthology format, telling self contained stories about a number of secondary characters, or even new heroes, while keeping only three or four main shows on air.
