CW renews ‘Vampire,’ four others

Fate of freshman dramas to be announced

The CW has renewed five series for the 2011-12 season: “America’s Next Top Model,” “The Vampire Diaries,” “Gossip Girl,” “90210” and “Supernatural,” with fall premieres for all.

In addition, the network announced its first all-star edition of “Top Model,” featuring breakout contestants from the series’ history. It will air in the fall, followed in the spring by a regular edition of “Model.”

Vampire Diaries” is the CW’s most-watched show with an average of 4 million viewers. Both “Vampire Diaries” and “Gossip Girl” near a 3.0 rating in women 18-34.

“Supernatural,” entering its seventh season this fall, is the longest-running scripted show on the list.

Still to be officially determined are the fates of eight-season vet “One Tree Hill” as well as the network’s two freshman dramas, “Hellcats” and “Nikita.” “Smallville” is ending its run in May after 10 seasons.

The renewals are likely to be among the final decisions of network prexy Dawn Ostroff, who is expected to leave by summer to spend more time with her family.
