The hits just keep on coming! After NBC announced that it would renew five of its major series for additional 22-episode seasons, now The CW has followed suit with a few pickups of their own. Not only will ‘The Vampire Diaries‘ spin-off ‘The Originals‘ officially go to series, but freshman drama ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ and Rachel Bilson‘s ‘Hart of Dixie‘ will return for additional seasons as well!

‘Vampire Diaries’ fans, we hope you liked last night’s Klaus-centric spinoff episode ‘The Originals,’ because you’ll be getting more! The CW has officially announced that it will take ‘The Originals’ to series, as well as renew struggling dramas ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Hart of Dixie’ for additional seasons. Already renewed were ‘Arrow,’ ‘Supernatural,’ and ‘The Vampire Diaries’ itself. Says CW president Mark Pedowitz:

As soon as we saw last night’s episode of ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ we knew we wanted more of ‘The Originals’ – Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson have done a fantastic job with ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ which is as fast-paced and well-written as ever, and Julie has created an equally compelling world for ‘The Originals.’

We’re also very excited to bring back ‘Beauty And The Beast’ and ‘Hart of Dixie’ for next season – both series continue to be creatively strong and compelling, and their fans are incredibly passionate. I’m very happy to have all three series on the schedule for next season.

Still yet to be renewed or cancelled are that of ‘Nikita‘ or ‘The Carrie Diaries,’ though we’ve heard before The CW will consider reduced-season orders to hold onto some of its stronger online and international performers. The CW’s is the second major renewal announcement of the day, following the news that NBC had granted additional orders to Revolution,’ ‘Grimm,’ ‘Parenthood,’ ‘Law & Order: SVU’ and ‘Chicago Fire.’

We’ll keep you posted on the latest announcements, but what say you? Are you excited ‘The Originals’ will go to series? How about additional years for ‘Beauty and the Beast’ or ‘Hart of Dixie?
