3 CW series get early renewal
LOS ANGELES (MCT) -- The CW announced Monday it has given early pickups for next season to freshman superhero drama "Arrow" and veteran series "The Vampire Diaries" and "Supernatural."
That takes "Arrow" into a second season, while "The Vampire Diaries" and "Supernatural" will enter their fifth and ninth seasons, respectively.
"Arrow" was a breakout hit for the network. The Wednesday drama, based on DC Comics' "Green Arrow," premiered in October to 4.1 million viewers -- making it the CW's most-watched telecast of any show in three years and its most-watched premiere since "Vampire Diaries." It currently stands as the network's most-watched show.
