The CW Renews Slew of Dramas Including ‘Reign,’ ‘The Originals’

The CW has picked up five of its dramas for new seasons, including freshman series “Reign” and “The Originals.” “Arrow,” “The Vampire Diaries” and “Supernatural” were also among the renewed programs.

Renewals for the 2014-15 season will take “Arrow” through its third run and “Vampire Diaries” through its sixth. The pickup for “Supernatural” means a tenth season for the Eric Kripke drama, which anchors the CW’s Tuesday night lineup.

“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,” said CW head Mark Pedowitz. “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.”

Early pickups for the five dramas leaves several other CW series on the bubble, including “Hart of Dixie,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Tomorrow People” and “Sex and the City” prequel “The Carrie Diaries.” Pedowitz noted at his net’s TCA session in January that decisions regarding these bubble shows will likely be made in May.
