CW Will Bring Back Reign, The Originals and Three Other Series

Fans of The CW’s soapy dramas can get ready to celebrate. The teen-oriented network has given early renewals to five of its series, including freshman dramas Reign and The Originals!
Old favorites Arrow, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries will also be returning for the 2014-15 season. 
Mark Pedowitz, president of The CW, 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.  […]  The Vampire Diaries is No. 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.


There’s no word yet on the fates of Beauty and the Beast, The Carrie Diaries, Hart of Dixie or The Tomorrow People. It’s likely the channel will wait to make anymore additional announcements until May, when they have Upfronts.

    It should be noted that at least a couple of behind the scenes folks on TP are currently working on a Flash pilot for The CW.

    Truth to tell, the series has been losing viewership steadily since it debuted. It doesn’t look good for them getting another season.

    I thought I kept hearing the ratings were getting higher for The Tomorrow People. I think that show rocks and was addicted from the first episode. I do think moving it to Mondays is a mistake, it fit perfectly with Arrow.

    I should clarify that the 18-49 ratings haven’t been that great of late; I have zero clue about the overall ratings.

    Reign I can dismiss very easily: It WANTS to be The Tudors, but it’s missing a few things-good acting(especially from, say, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Natalie Dormer)first and foremost. (It DOES, however, have in its cast a couple of actors who were ON The Tudors.) And, just like The Tudors, it tends to play fast and loose with the historical record.
