'Supernatural,' 'Vampire Diaries' renewed

Not even the Apocalypse can keep Supernatural down. Despite the throwdown with Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino, left, who also plays godlike Jacob on Lost), and the plotline that was supposed to end the show, The CW will be bringing the series back for a sixth season.

Also returning is The Vampire Diaries, which has developed into a reliable ratings draw.
