According to CW president Mark Pedowitz, "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 No. 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."
The Hollywood Reporter mentions that network's biggest success story this season, however, has been on Tuesday night, "In addition to launching the strong Vampire Diaries spinoff, "The Originals," as the new network No. 2 (1.7 rating adults 18-49), nine-season-old "Supernatural" has been hitting three-year highs. The lone holdover from the defunct WB Network, "Supernatural" is up double digits from last year. And "Arrow," still the network's most-watched series with 3.9 million viewers, continues to bring in men to the female-skewing network."
There is still no word on the fate of the network's other paranormally-themed shows, "Beauty and The Beast," "The Tomorrow People," "The 100" and "Star-Crossed" but we'll keep you posted.
