CW Renews "The Vampire Diaries", "The Originals", "Arrow", and More

Fans of the CW, rejoice! The popular network has announced that they will be renewing some of their most popular scripted programs; each for another season.

The Vampire Diaries and its spinoff, The Originals, were both renewed, alongside Arrow, Reign, and Supernatural.

Each of these shows have demonstrated their power to not only bring in viewers and high ratings each week, but to be self-sustaining TV staples for a generation that love to delve into mythology, mystery, and history.

In a press release, CW president Mark Pedowitz said:

“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 No. 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.”

Unfortunately, the fates of other CW shows, like Hart of Dixie, The Tomorrow People, and The Carrie Diaries, are still waiting on the final word from the network.

Are you excited that these CW shows are getting renewed?
