‘Supernatural,’ ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Renewed for New Seasons at The CW!
We make no secret of our unabashed love for The CW favorites 'Supernatural' and 'The Vampire Diaries' as well as freshman hit DC drama 'Arrow.' And while none of the three series were in any real danger of cancellation as TV production rolls through pilot season on to springs network renewal announcements, The CW has dropped a blessed bombshell on us by renewing all three for additional seasons in advance! Find out what the network has to say about the decision to renew 'Supernatural,' 'Arrow' and 'The Vampire Diaries' inside!
'Supernatural,' 'Arrow' and 'The Vampire Diaries' fans are all in for a major bit of good news today, as The CW has decided to renew all three dramas for additional seasons to be featured in the fall 2013-2014 lineup. The early renewal will mark a ninth season for 'Supernatural,' a second for freshman hit 'Arrow,' and a fifth for fan-favorite 'The Vampire Diaries.'
Says The CW president Mark Pedowitz:
We said last year that one of our goals was to establish building blocks to grow on, and now with our new hit Arrow and fan favorite Supernatural on Wednesday night, and the continued success of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, we’ve been able to do that.
Not only do Arrow, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries perform well on-air, they’re also extremely successful for us both digitally and socially. I’m thrilled to have all three shows returning to our schedule next season.
It isn't known precisely how many episodes any of the three additional season will feature, or what 'The Vampire Diaries' renewal will mean for potential spin-off 'The Originals.' Either way, we're ecstatic to have all three back on the line-up next year, and so ahead of schedule.
