While it was a foregone conclusion that The CW would renew its uber popular “The Vampire Diaries” for a third season, fans of the network’s long-running “Supernatural” have been left hanging as to whether their beloved Winchesters would be returning for a seventh under new showrunner Sera Gamble. Today they got the answer, and it certainly made us here at Dread Central happy campers.
Excerpt from the Press Release:
The CW Network has given early pickups to five of its established series for next season, including the network’s top-rated drama THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and SUPERNATURAL. All five shows (the other three being AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL, GOSSIP GIRL, and 90210 in case you’re curious) will return in fall 2011.
The CW’s bloodily addictive hit THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, currently in its sophomore season, remains the network’s most-watched show (4.0 million viewers) and the network’s number-one show among its target audience of women 18-34 (2.9/9).
The network also renewed fan favorite SUPERNATURAL, which enters its seventh season next year. In moving to Fridays last September, SUPERNATURAL immediately helped make The CW more competitive on the night and dramatically contributed to year-to-year gains on Friday of 66% in adults 18-34 and 60% in viewers.
