The CW on Monday announced early pick-ups for three of its series: Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries and Arrow.
Arrow gave The CW its best series premiere since 2009, Vampire Diaries is the network’s highest-rated show in target demos and Supernatural is up 15 percent in total audience versus last season. The dramas will be entering their second, fifth and ninth seasons in fall 2013, respectively.
“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,” network president Mark Pedowitz said in a statement. “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.”
I’ve added stills of Michael in the upcoming episode of TVD titled “After School Special” which is the first episode back after the winter finale. The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, January 17 at 8pm on CW.
