Despite it being a little early in the season for renewals, The CW has signed on for more seasons of five its shows today including a third season of Arrow.
As the season draws in to its final stretch, the networks will be looking hard at what to renew, but The CW is wasting no time and and in addition to renewing fan favorite Arrow, it also ordered additional seasons of Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals and Reign.
Speaking about the thinking behind the early renewals, CW president Mark Pedowitz said, “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.” He went on to add, “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.”
Considering how in love I am with Arrow this season, I’m very happy about this news.
