The CW has renewed five of its dramas for next season. Ready?


The Vampire Diaries.


The Originals.



Explained CW president Mark Pedowitz: “This season we’ve had great success with our new hit series The Originals paired with Supernatural, giving us our best Tuesday nights in years. The Vampire Diaries is #2 in its time period in the young adult demos, and with Arrow continuing to gain among young men, and Reign growing its time period, we now have strong nights on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I’m very pleased to announce early pickups for all five series, and let our fans know they’ll have more great drama to look forward to next season.”

All five of these pickups were predicted in our Death Watch post earlier this week. Click the link to see the odds of renewals on the remaining CW shows:
