Despite the fact that ratings for last night’s backdoor pilot for “The Vampire Diaries” spinoff “The Originals” marked a series low for “TVD,” The CW has already given it an early pickup for next season.
From the Press Release:
The CW Network has given early pickups to three additional dramas for next season, including the first new series order of the season with “THE ORIGINALS,” the highly anticipated spinoff of “The Vampire Diaries,” which was introduced during last night’s episode. The network also gave advance orders for the second season of “BEAUTY AND THE BEAST” and the third season of “HART OF DIXIE.” The pickups were announced today by Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW.
“As soon as we saw last night’s episode of ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ we knew we wanted more of ‘The Originals’ – Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson have done a fantastic job with ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ which is as fast-paced and well-written as ever, and Julie has created an equally compelling world for ‘The Originals,’” said Pedowitz.
The CW has already given advance orders to “ARROW,” “THE VAMPIRE DIARIES,” and “SUPERNATURAL” for next season.
