The CW has announced that three shows will be returning for another season.
Today, CW President Mark Pedowitz announced season pickups for veteran shows The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural; along with newcomer Arrow reports Variety. The three shows have been the networks best running shows with Arrow getting the networks highest ratings.
Arrow had CWs most watched series debut since 2009. The overall amount of viewers tuning for the show is 4.3 million each week and is the highest for the network.
The Vampire Diaries will be entering its fifth season on the CW and is the networks most watched show among viewers 18-34 for adults and women. According to Hollywood, a spinoff might be picked up for a whole season if the pilot, The Originals, is liked.
The networks longest running show, Supernatural is entering its ninth season. It started back in 2005 when the network was still The WB. Since Arrow came aboard this past season on Wednesday nights Supernatural has seen a 15 percent jump in viewers.
“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,” said Pedowitz.
The new season will start in the fall. Current shows like 90210, Beauty and the Beast, Nikita and Hart of Dixie still hold their breath to hear on their futures.
