CW Renews ‘Supernatural,’ ‘Vampire Diaries,’ and ‘Arrow’

'Supernatural' season 9 artWith the success of its shows Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, and Arrow, it's no surprise that The CW has announced an early renewal of their veteran series' seasons for the 2014-2015 TV season.

Next season would mark Supernatural's tenth, Arrow's third, and The Vampire Diaries' sixth. The network - which tends to favor programming geared towards a younger audience - also renewed rookie series The Originals and Reign.

"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," CW president Mark Pedowitz said.

The network has yet to decide whether it will renew its other veteran series Beauty and the Beast, Hart of Dixie, and The Carrie Diaries.
