The CW has made Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, and Supernatural fans happy. The network isn’t delaying their decision on what to do with the popular shows, announcing today the early renewal of the three series.
Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, and Supernatural will return for all new episodes in fall 2013.
The Vampire Diaries renewal came as no surprise given the fact the show’s the network’s top-rated drama, and Arrow wasn’t much of a shocking decision as it’s been embraced by fans of the genre as well as TV critics. However, the renewal of Supernatural is always a touchy subject given its hard-core fan base and the fact it’s not a ratings-grabber.
The CW President Mark Pedowitz announced the renewals, saying, “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. “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.”
Arrow snagged the best series premiere numbers since 2009 and is The CW’s most watch series at 4.3 million. The Vampire Diaries‘ fifth season remains the highest rated for the network in the adults 18-34 and women 18-34. And Supernatural has gained viewers this season after The CW paired it up with Arrow on Wednesdays.
