'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Supernatural' and 'Arrow' Renewed
The CW has given early pickups to three of its hit dramas for next season.
"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 network president Mark Pedowitz in a press release. "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."
Heading to its fifth season, The Vampire Diaries -- which stars Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley-- shows no signs of slowing down as it remains The CW's highest rated series for adults 18-34 and women 18-34.
Likewise, Supernatural, which will be heading into its ninth season, continues to be a ratings juggernaut with a 15 percent increase in viewers since paired with superhero drama Arrow this year.
