Anybody worried that they would not see their fave CW action-dramas come back next season can breathe a sigh of relief. The network has announced that “Vampire Diaries,” “Supernatural,” and “Arrow” have all been renewed for another season.
That makes nine (count ’em) NINE seasons of “Supernatural.” The series renewal proves that the show has retained its hardcore fanbase after all these years — might it work its way to the landmark 10th season of “Smallville?”
“Arrow” was a freshman show tgat everybody had their eyes on, wondering if this adaptation of the DC Comics character Green Arrow would make it — or go the way of “Birds of Prey.” Well, the series, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is the CW’s most-watched show this season, with an average of 4.3 million viewers tuning in. Maybe “Arrow’s” success can get that darn “Wonder Woman” pilot off the ground!
Lastly, it’s obvious that “Vampire Diaries,” which will receive its fifth season, is the anchor for the network, paving the way for similar “teen-scream” shows as “The Secret Circle” and “Beauty and the Beast.” It will be interesting to see if the upcoming series “The Cult” (starring “Vampire Diaries'” Matt Davis), will succeed as well; the show, that features a blogger on the trail on a bunch of “copycat” serial killers (“The Following,” anyone?) will be debuting Feb. 19th.
