CW Picks Up Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Gossip Girl, 90210, And Top Model

Good news! The CW has given early pickups to some our favorite shows including Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, Supernatural, 90210, and America’s Next Top Model! Fall will be awesome! We have the official press release below!

The CW Network has given early pickups to five of its established series for next season, including an All-Star Cycle of AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL and the network’s top-rated drama THE VAMPIRE DIARIES. All five shows will return in Fall 2011.

With AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL ordered for both cycles next season, The CW’s signature reality series will kick-off the Fall with its first-ever All-Star Edition, featuring the models who became breakout characters and who had the most memorable stories from past cycles. Additional details about the cast, judges and prizes for the All-Star cycle of TOP MODEL will be announced at a later time.

The CW’s bloodily addictive hit THE VAMPIRE DIARIES was also given an early renewal, and in its sophomore season, remains the network’s most-watched show (4.0 million viewers) and the network’s number-one show among its target audience of women 18-34 (2.9/9).

Also given early pickups for next season are The CW’s scandalous guilty pleasures GOSSIP GIRL, the network’s second most popular series with women 18-34 (2.8/7), and 90210, which posts some of TV’s largest percent increases from DVR playback, more than doubling its women 18-34 live ratings once live+7 data is included.

The network also renewed fan favorite SUPERNATURAL, which enters its seventh season next year. In moving to Fridays last September, SUPERNATURAL immediately helped make The CW more competitive on the night and dramatically contributed to year-to-year gains on Friday of 66% in adults 18-34 and 60% in viewers.

  1. Wow! I’m surprised Supernatural has been renewed! Kind of worries me a bit as to what they plan for the next season…maybe I should finish off this season first though before worrying over that? lol

    The Vampire Diaries this year has been incredible! I’m so glad it’ll be back and can’t wait to see what they do in the next season!

  2. Yeah Eric Kripke had originally planned for Supernatural to end at the end of Season 5 – so I wonder if they’ve outlined another 5 years? I love this show, it’s one of my favorites, I’m just concerned like the rest of the fans with where the series is headed. It felt like a pretty clear ending to the series last season – but then they came back and had an awesome Season 6, so I’m sure they’ll do it again next season. And Vampire Diaries – talk about a strong second season. They rocked it! 🙂

  3. I love Supernatural. Always have, and always will.. but there’s a part of me that wanted it to end in Season 5 the way Kripke intended it to. I’d rather see this show end on a high note then go on and on until you’re thinking ‘This show is still on?’. It’s not the same as it once was for me..but it’s not a show I can ever let go even if I wanted to lol. I also heard that Misha isn’t in the contract for seasosn seven which fans seem to have an opinion on. I wonder if that’s true? TVD: It’s not often that I love a second season more than a first but for The Vampire Diaries that’s definitely the case! Every week I was blown away with how it kept getting better and better.

  4. I completely agree – normally Season 1 of anything is my favorite. But Season 1 and 2 of Vampire Diaries flow so well into one another that I really can’t choose a favorite so far. In terms of Supernatural, I agree with you. I wanted it to end with an explosive Season 5 finale too just because that was Eric Kripke’s original vision. That being said – I’ve become so attached to that show that when it does end it’s going to be extremely depressing. I can’t imagine a Season 7 without Misha. I feel like he’s become a core cast member, so I hope that’s not true. We’ll know in the next few months – especially if he shows up at Comic Con in July.
