The CW Gives Out Early Renewals for Fall
The CW has given early season renews to it’s strongest shows. The series pickups were announced today by Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW. The shows lucky enough for early renewal include the network’s top two dramas The Vampire Diaries and Arrow, the veteran, Supernatural, and the two freshmen series, The Originals and Reign. Below is a little bit of what Mark Pedowitz had to say at today’s press conference.
“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 #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,” said Pedowitz. “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.”
That leaves Beauty & the Beast, The Carrie Diaries, Hart of Dixie and The Tomorrow People on the bubble. Each show having a 50-50 shot at a renewal with their odds varying depending on the performance of the upcoming mid-season series The 100 and Star-Crossed.
