The CW has renewed three of its hit series for next season, including freshman hit Arrow, its top-rated drama The Vampire Diaries and fan favorite Supernatural. The news came yesterday from Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW that all three shows will return in Fall 2013.
“We said last year that one of our goals was to establish building blocks to grow on, and now with our new hit Arrow and fan favorite Supernatural on Wednesday night, and the continued success of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, we’ve been able to do that,” said Pedowitz. “Not only do Arrow, Supernatural, and The Vampire Diaries perform well on-air, they’re also extremely successful for us both digitally and socially. I’m thrilled to have all three shows returning to our schedule next season.”
One of the true breakout hits of the season, Arrow posted The CW’s best series premiere since 2009 and currently stands as the network’s most watched show (4.3 million viewers).
