'The Vampire Diaries' star Paul Wesley answers a few of our questions.
Today, the CW network announced early pickups for the 2014-15 season, including freshman hits Reign and The Originals.

The Vampire Diaries heads into season five (and more Katherine than yours truly signed up for), Arrow (and its delicious Steven Amell) into season three and fan favorite Supernatural returns for its tenth season.

“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,” CW president Mark Pedowitz said in a statement.  “The Vampire Diaries is #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.”

Arrow, surprisingly, is the network’s most watched series, with 3.9 million viewers.  It’s #1 in its time slot among men 18-34.
