If you're a fan of CW series, it's a good day for you, as on Thursday, Feb. 13, the network issued early renewals for five of its dramas, including two freshman series.
The CW has renewed "Supernatural" for season 10, "Arrow" for season 3, "The Vampire Diaries" for season 6, "The Originals" for season 2 and "Reign" for season 2. None of these renewals should come as much of a surprise, as the first three are already established hits, and the last two have been successful for the network in their first seasons. The CW hit gold by pairing "The Originals" and "Supernatural" Tuesdays, as recent ratings have shown, "Arrow" just keeps getting better, there are always twists coming on "The Vampire Diaries," and "Reign" has proven itself as a must-see series.
The CW president, Mark Pedowitz, has said in a statement, "This season we've had great success with our new hit series "The Originals" paired with "Supernatural," giving us our best Tuesday nights in years. "The Vampire Diaries" is #2 in its time period in the young adult demos, and with "Arrow" continuing to gain among young men, and "Reign" growing its time period, we now have strong nights on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I'm very pleased to announce early pickups for all five series, and let our fans know they’ll have more great drama to look forward to next season."
The futures of "Beauty and the Beast," "Hart of Dixie," "The Tomorrow People," and "The Carrie Diaries" are still up in the air, and it's too early to know about new CW series "Star-Crossed" and "The 100," which have yet to premiere.
"Supernatural," "The Vampire Diaries," "Arrow," "The Originals" and "Reign" will all be back for the 2014-2015 season on the CW. Which renewal surprises you the least?
